Stonehaven Announces West Coast Tour Dates

Midwest black metal legion Stonehaven is pleased to embark upon four special West Coast rituals this week. The Harbingers of Ruin Tour will begin this Thursday and includes two performances at the Northwestern Black Circle Fest IV alongside blackened behemoths Marduk, 1349, Weapon, Ceremonial Castings and more.

Notes the band of the upcoming voyage: “It is often that this time of year we see fit to assert ourselves on the West Coast. With precision and decisiveness we will ravage the shoreline, and we will meet our foes in climax at Portland.”

6/14/2012 CIA – North Hollywood, CA w/ Icon of Phobos, Hordes of Hate, Sein Und Zeit
6/15/2012 Casa Sangre – Oakland, CA w/ Icon of Phobos, Hordes of Hate, Sein Und Zeit
6/16/2012 Northwestern Black Circle Fest IV @ Bossanova Ballroom – Portland, OR
6/17/2012 Northwestern Black Circle Fest IV @ Branx – Portland, OR

Stonehaven will be touring in support of "Concerning Old-Strife And Man-Banes," released earlier this Spring via Horror Pain Gore Death Productions. If you missed it, don’t forget to check out the track “Suffering The Swine-Array,” currently streaming at Cvlt Nation.

The band commented on the track: “The song details a field battle in the late 800s between Anglo-Saxon defenders and a large force of Danish invaders. During the song, we hear the boasts of three Danish Viking leaders, Kale, Thorstein, and Halfdan, as they break their way through the Saxon lines, and finally, the lament of dying Saxon warrior as he drifts in between the world of the living and the dead. He cries out in shame as he views the victorious dead of the Viking army carted away to the heavens by valkyries, and his own Christian brother laying in the field to rot.”
