Pilgrim To Play Heavy Days In Doomtown Festival 2012

Following a set at Denmark’s Heavy Days In Doomtown Festival, Rhode Island-based doom conjurors Pilgrim are pleased to announce their headlining appearance on this year’s edition of The Stoner Hands of Doom Fest.

Set to take place August 30th through September 2nd at El n Gee Club in New London, Connecticut, Pilgrim will appear alongside the likes of Earthride, Revelation, When The Deadbolt Breaks and more. The following press release was also issued about the fest:

"Stoner Hands of Doom is one of the premier annual gatherings for underground heavy/stoner/doom music in North America. SHoD has been held annually since 1999 in various small venues throughout the U.S. Many acts are unsigned/indie and many travel thousands of miles to gather in the name of rock. The concept was dreamed up by promoters Rob and Cheryl Levey, who have planned, booked and organized it since its inception. Under their guidance, the festival affectionately known as SHoD has grown over ten years from a one-day event to a weekend-long gathering, featuring over three dozen bands."

Comments drummer Krolg Splinterfist, the Slayer of Man: "Playing in Scandinavia was a great honor. The first ever Heavy Days in Doomtown festival was a massive success and Pilgrim is proud to have been a part of something that will surely become a chief ceremony for all lovers of music that is slow and heavy. Hails to all of the promoters and organizers who made our shows in the area a possibility! We will return sooner than later! Pilgrim looks into the future with great eagerness. The Stoner Hands of Doom festival has a long history in the New England doom metal community and we are prepared to add our name to the long list of bands that have glorified this fest. We are privileged and honored to be headlining the bill with the legendary Revelation, who has been an inspiration to many modern doom bands, ourselves included."

Pilgrim's upcoming live shows are as follows:

6/8/2012 Saint Vitus - Brooklyn, NY
8/31/2012 SHoD @ El N Gee Club – New London, CT
