Japanese black metal band SIGH's "A Tribute To Venom" was released yesterday via THE END RECORDS. Limited to one pressing, the album is available in three colors in a special collectible packaging that includes a 12" LP etched on side B along with a CD. The six-song tribute to legendary black metal band Venom features the bass work of Dan Lilker (Brutal Truth, Nuclear Assault) and Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Venomous Concept).

"A Tribute To Venom"'s opening track, "Black Metal," is available for download exclusively at Brooklyn Vegan.

The release of "A Tribute To Venom" comes with SIGH's first proper US tour just around the corner. Frontman Mirai Kawashima says, "We've played several times in the US before, but this is our first full US tour and we're really looking forward to it! This is going to be a great opportunity for our fans to see a full SIGH set. We hope to see all the SIGH fans out on tour as this has been a long time coming. We're going to play the songs off Hangman's Hymn and there will be lots of older songs in our set list -- and of course some Venom covers! Come see us or you will regret it forever!"
