Pilgrim Working On New Album, Signs With Metal Blade

Rhode Island's Pilgrim has officially joined forces with Metal Blade Records. The band's debut album, "Misery Wizard," was released in early 2012 through Alan Averill's Metal Blade imprint, Poison Tongue Records, and the band was nominated as one of the best newcomers of 2012 in our year-end awards.

Pilgrim managed to spend the majority of 2012 rattling the foundation of the underground doom scene. The band toured with Samothrace, Mares of Thrace, Primitive Weapons, headlined the Stoner Hands of Doom festival, and more. At the end of 2012, Pilgrim had the honor of performing at Metal Blade's 30th Anniversary ScionAV label showcase.

As the "Misery Wizard" chapter of Pilgrim's budding career draws to a close, the band has begun efforts to craft the follow-up . The new album will be recorded in May of 2013 at Emandee Studios, which is the same location utilized for "Misery Wizard." More details will be posted as they become available.

Vocalist "The Wizard" comments: "The stars have aligned and our dreams have come true. It's a fucking honor to have joined the ranks of the legendary Metal Blade army. The time has come for our world domination through sonic amplification. Hail Astaroth, Hail Slagel."
