Seattle’s organic doom metal quartet, SAMOTHRACE, has confirmed yet another new tour, and are preparing to hit the road once again next week. As they continue to enthrall live audiences around the globe with the material from their sophomore LP, Reverence To Stone, the latest West Coast run is set to begin this Sunday, November 3rd in Reno, Nevada with four subsequent shows in California to follow — Oakland, Santa Cruz, Fullerton and Glendale — showcasing SAMOTHRACE co-headlining all shows alongside atmospheric artisans, Subrosa.
Additionally, SAMOTHRACE is just days from announcing another expansive headlining stateside run of dates which will branch off from the pending mission with Subrosa. For the Subrosa portion of the tour Damon Kelly (Stoneburner, Heathen Shrine) will be joining SAMOTHRACE on bass, and on the subsequent tour dates to be announced in the coming days, Pete Hodous (Lesbian, Golgothan Sunrise) will be laying down the low-end.

The acclaimed Reverence To Stone was released in July of 2012 via 20 Buck Spin, the label responsible for unveiling the band to the masses on the masterful 2008 debut SAMOTHRACE album, Life’s Trade. Through two lumbering, expansive tracks, the band explores more cavernous realms of thunderous tone hand-in-hand with even more beautiful and organic elements than ever on Reverence To Stone, all culminating in an incredibly real-sounding, psychedelic doom metal that continues to prove SAMOTHRACE as one of the top bands of the genre. Since the LP’s triumphant release, the band has trekked across the US regionally several times and also ventured across all of Europe on their debut tour of the continent, and as they continue to book more dates this Autumn, continue their most intense touring cycle in the band’s entire lineage.
