Unholy Anarchy Records has issued the following statement about Subrosa having equipment stolen on the road:
"As if life on the road for bands these days isn’t hard enough, Salt Lake City’s Subrosa had their tour van broken into on November 4th while stopping for a bite to eat in Sacramento en route to the band’s next stop in Oakland.
"The van sustained damage, and the band lost two violins, several electric guitars, a bass guitar, and a gear bag containing money and personal belongings.
"In light of these unfortunate circumstances, friends of the band have established a site on YouCaring.com for donations. Subrosa will also provide some merchandise as a gift to those who choose to donate over $30.
"Every penny donated will go directly towards recouping the losses Subrosa incurred during this event that significantly degraded their ability to tour in support of their exceptional new album, More Constant Than the Gods."
Subrosa has announced a string of West Coast dates with the mighty Samothrace this November. Details are as follows:
11/03 – Reno, NV @ Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor
11/04 – Oakland, CA @ Oakland Metro
11/05 – Santa Cruz, CA @ The Catalyst Atrium

Following its crushingly triumphant debut maiden occurrence last year, the second Tucson, Arizona-based Southwest Terror Fest 2013: Year Of The Snake has been confirmed and the full lineup for the massive gala announced.
The complete lineup can be found below, and the following press release was issued about the festival:
"This fully DIY undertaking, booked by musicians, for musicians, is a low-cost event for all ages. Once again organized and hosted by Tucson sludgetroopers Godhunter, the now annual Southwest Terror Fest brings a one-of-a-kind extreme underground music festival to the Southwestern quadrant of America.
"This year, the experience has been expanded into an immense four-day event, now confirmed to invade Tucson venue The Rock from Thursday, October, 10th through Sunday, October 13th. The Southwest Terror Fest 2013: Year Of The Snake lineup features even more national headlining acts than last year, including legends like Sacred Reich and Vehemence, along with Kylesa, Red Fang, Demon Lung, Ancestors, Subrosa, Landmine Marathon, Early Graves and others, and a long line of newer underground acts, totaling more than sixty bands! Whether you like punk, sludge, black metal, thrash, grindcore, post-metal, etc., something for all fans of extreme music is to be found at this event."
Subrosa has completed work on a new full-length album titled “More Constant Than The Gods.” Profound Lore Records comments on the coming release:
"Following up 2011’s 'No Help For The Mighty Ones,' an album which brought more recognition to the Salt Lake City contingent and became one of the most acclaimed doom metal-related albums of that year, 'More Constant Than The Gods' not only sees Subrosa delivering their heaviest and darkest album to date, but taking their playing and composition to a new level by adding more depth and substance to their music which comprises influences of doom metal, rock, chamber music, Americana folk/goth, and Appalachian murder balladry.
"Armed with a massive low-end rhythm section that interweaves with two electric violins in counterpoint and topped with siren-like vocals, 'More Constant Than The Gods' (which was tracked by drummer Andy Patterson and mixed and mastered by Marduk bass player Devo Andersson in Sweden) will define Subrosa as one of the most enrapturing and haunting bands in the doom movement today."
To officially be released September 17th, the track listing for “More Constant Than The Gods” is as follows:
1. The Usher
2. Ghosts Of A Dead Empire
3. Cosey Mo
4. Fat Of The Ram
6. No Safe Harbor More...
