Antagonist, The Funeral Pyre To Depart For Tour in July with Sea of Treachery

Fresh upon returning from a three week tour in support of the release of the band’s new album, "Wounds," Los Angeles’ THE FUNERAL PYRE will again head out on the road in July with labelmates, and fellow Southern Californians, ANTAGONIST for a two and-a-half week tour across the Southwest and West Coast. THE FUNERAL PYRE will continue to support their May 27 release of "Wounds," while ANTAGONIST will be on tour in anticipation of the band’s Prosthetic Records debut, "Exist," due for a fall release.

THE FUNERAL PYRE’s frontman chimed in on the band’s upcoming tour plans and has also issued several updates from the road in June at the band’s online weblog. The previous updates can be seen here, while the newest update is available below:

"So, I didn't really manage to find time to write about what happened in the last few shows," the band says. "Just know that they were all really good, we had a fun time and then the tour ended. Yeah, I know, not a good wrap up. Oh well. But I'll wrap the rest of this up. We had a fun three week tour in support of our new record 'Wounds,' which came out on May 27. If you haven't checked it out, please do. We'll be hitting the road here in a few weeks with our best friends in ANTAGONIST and we'll be teaming up with Sea Of Treachery. This will be another 2 1/2 week tour or so, so if you didn't manage to catch us on the last run, come out to these shows. We're pretty busy at the moment! Come check out the shows, have a good time. I'm sure we'll be on tour sometime in September as well."

In the meantime, THE FUNERAL PYRE will play two Southern California shows with Cattle Decapitation in the coming week and ANTAGONIST will be playing a hometown show this weekend before heading up north for a show later this month. Both bands’ music can be heard at the ANTAGONIST MySpace page and at THE FUNERAL PYRE’s MySpace page, including the new song "Black Earth," from "Wounds."
