Nachtmystium Announces New Live Shows And Working On New Album

The bastard sons of black metal in Nachtmystium have announced a string of random live attacks for the coming months, while they also devise the execution of their sixth full-length release. The latest plague of concerts begins with a hometown headlining gig, with support from Lord Mantis (containing two members of Nachtmystium), this Friday, May 6th in Chicago. The band's upcoming dates are as follows:

5/06/2011 Cobra Lounge - Chicago, IL w/ Lord Mantis, Defcon [info]
6/11/2011 Alehorn Of Power Festival - Chicago, IL [info]
7/23/2011 Central Illinois Metalfest - Urbana, IL [info]
8/12/2011 Flugplatz Obermehler - Schlotheim, Germany @ Party San Festival [info]

Since returning from a North American tour as direct support for Cradle of Filth in March, Nachmystium has been devising the band's next studio effort. As of now, little more about the album is being released, but according to vocalist Blake Judd this week: "The new record will have a very strong industrial influence in the vein of later-era Ministry, Revolting Cocks and Nine Inch Nails, but also a strong, depressive, old-school black metal influence." More details will be announced shortly.

In the meantime, Judd and Nachtmystium have confirmed several collaborations with infamous USBM horde Von. Two separate projects are currently underway which involve members of both bands. First up, Judd has been confirmed as one of a dozen notable artists set to collaborate with Von bassist Venien, on a project entitled Von Venien. The unit will release a 12" single entitled "Empire" via Von's own label Von Music Group. Following that, VMG will also unleash a split between Von and Nachtmystium via 12" MLP and CD, which will include both a new track as well as some Von homage from Nachtmystium. Full details on releases will be unveiled shortly.

The band's song "Nightfall" also recently made its way onto the Rock Band Network.
