Samothrace Announces New U.S. Tour Dates

As the sophomore release from Seattle's harbingers of doom, Samothrace, nears release via 20 Buck Spin, this week the band confirms a rash of tour dates for later in the Summer.

First up, Samothrace will headline a West Coast tour in August. This routing, still under construction, will see the quartet playing five confirmed shows throughout California -- including the headlining slot at Deadfest alongside dozens of extreme, underground acts -- as well as two record release shows in the Pacific Northwest to be announced in the days ahead. Following that, the band will embark on the Paths To Oblivion Tour, with Samothrace joining Pallbearer and Royal Thunder for a nine-date run throughout the eastern half of the country during the first two weeks of September.

Samothrace's "Reverence To Stone" will see the light of day on CD, LP and digital download on July 31st via 20 Buck Spin. The new hymns were constructed at Soundhouse Studios in the band's hometown of Seattle with producer Brandon Fitzsimmons (ex-Wormwood) at the turn of the year, then mastered at Earhammer by Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Graves At Sea). The album's cover art was painted by hardcore/punk musician and artist Moses Saarni.
