Inter Arma Cancels Upcoming Shows

Inter Arma is currently embarked on the Vermis North America MMXIV tour with Ulcerate. The band has now issued the following announcement about missing several upcoming shows:

"Regretfully, due to circumstances beyond our control, Inter Arma will be unable to perform on the Canadian, Detroit, and Chicago dates of the East Coast portion of the tour with Ulcerate leading up to MDF.

"We had maintained hope that the situation now causing our absence would have resolved itself prior to the trip, allowing us to do the whole tour unimpeded, but that ended up not being the case.

"We will definitively still be playing the shows in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston and hope to be able to hop back on at Fort Wayne and finish the remainder of the shows, but there are still a few things up in the air waiting to be resolved.

"This is probably more of a bummer for us than it is for you, but we apologize nonetheless and hope to be able to make it up to you all ASAP." More...

Inter Arma Comments On Upcoming Shows

Richmond, Virginia's tour-incessant tonal decimation crew Inter Arma recently announced the confirmation of a maiden European trek, now set to take place just after the already looming U.S. tour with Russian Circles and KEN Mode, which is less than two weeks from embarking.

Inter Arma guitarist Trey Dalton commented: "We've heard nothing but pretty incredible things about how awesome it can be touring in Europe, and needless to say we're very ready to experience that for ourselves. We're most definitely looking forward to playing at Roadburn as we're basically pals with half the bands playing, not to mention that we'll be with some of our best friends in Windhand for the majority of the tour. That being said, I think we're pretty excited about all of the shows. Most of us haven't done a lot of international traveling at all so this is a pretty righteous opportunity."

While still touring in support of the "Sky Burial" LP, the name of Inter Arma's recently recorded EP has been announced as "The Cavern," which encompasses a sprawling forty minutes of material. A final release date and further details on "The Cavern" EP will be released upon its completion. Catch Inter Arma live:

We couldn't be more appreciative for this opportunity to ruin so many beautiful cities and their charming populations. We are especially glad to be teaming up with Inter Arma, one of our favorite bands in the American metal scene."

Inter Arma Enters The Studio

After the release of sophomore LP "Sky Burial" via Relapse in March, Richmond’s Inter Arma is already back to work in the studio.

For the next ten days, the band will be bunkered down in Madison, Tennessee-based Dark Art Studios with producer Mikey Allred -- the same surroundings and setup that captured the monolithic "Sky Burial" LP.

"There’s no title yet, but it’s a forty-plus minute piece that was originally written during the summer of 2009 and only played out a few times," stated guitarist Trey Dalton on the track. "We'll have some different people doing guest appearances (noise, synth, strings, vox, and more) as well. We’re trying to make the most completely off the wall shit yet."

Further details on the recording will be released in the coming weeks upon completion. In the meantime, Inter Arma has been confirmed to perform at a pair of late Summer stateside music festivals, including a set alongside Pig Destroyer, ASG, Sleep, Kurt Vile and more at this year’s massive Hopscotch Fest in Raleigh, North Carolina on September 5th, followed by a spot on Boomslang Festival in Lexington, Kentucky the weekend of September 20th. Inter Arma has also been confirmed to storm Holland in 2014 as part of the annual Roadburn Festival. Expect further tour actions to be announced shortly.

Inter Arma Posts "Sky Burial" Song Online

National Public Radio today unfurls a brand new track from Richmond, Virginia doomsmiths Inter Arma, with the opening track to the band’s Relapse debut "Sky Burial."

Let the more than ten-minute seismic upheaval of “The Survival Fires” tear your world apart via NPR right here. The following press release was also issued:

"'The Survival Fires' comes immediately alive with some of the most straightforward blackened blasting found on the multi-faceted album, yet overall reverberates with the pulsating, organic, earthmoving doom surge the band so expertly perpetuates.

"In hardly more than two weeks from now, Inter Arma will take the sonic destruction of the songs on Sky Burial out to the masses on an upcoming North American assault alongside Brooklyn savages Mutilation Rites.

"The three-week venture will take the bands through the Midwest and into Austin, Texas for several performances throughout 2013’s SXSW fiesta, just as Sky Burial will be hitting stores for its March 19th North American street date. The tour then breaks into the Southwest and includes a stop in Tijuana, Mexico before pummeling north, up the West Coast and back into the Midwest." More...
