Texas-based DEAD TO A DYING WORLD has completed their immense sophomore album, Litany, and plans to release the record this October alongside a Western US tour. In advance of its release, Decibel Magazine has exclusively premiered “Beneath The Loam” as the first single from the record to be made publicly available.
DEAD TO A DYING WORLD return with the long-awaited follow-up to their 2011 self-titled debut album with the defining opus entitled Litany, an endeavor that emboldens the septet’s tremendous creative spirit. Litany is increasingly ambitious with each of its six triumphant musical movements, demanding hope and despair in its deliberate parade of the sours of humanity. This musical ensemble has crafted an aural landscape that thrives somewhere between apocalyptic doom, blackened crust, and dark post-rock. Their compositional skill is wonderful to behold as their works flow seamlessly from solemn string arrangement into tremendous dooming resolution.
Invited into the collaborative fold for guest appearances on this album are some of the creative minds behind Pallbearer, Sabbath Assembly, and Pinkish Black, whose contributions bring the entrancing narrative within Litany an unapologetic authenticity. With celebrated producer Billy Anderson at the helm, the band’s sound reaches brilliant new heights. Litany is a statement, a mantra, an epilogue, yet it gives just a hint to the musical manuscript underwritten by DEAD TO A DYING WORLD.

Litany will be presented in multiple formats, the digital and gatefold CD on October 16th, and a deluxe 2xLP shortly afterward. Gilead Media will handle the CD release, and combine forces with Alerta Antifascista Records and Tofu Carnage Records for the 2xLP release. This album is for those who truly appreciate the aesthetic value of deluxe packaging and heavyweight color vinyl, pressed on 200-gram vinyl with both Gold with Black Splatter and Black pressings for North America and Gold inside Milky Clear with Bone Splatter and Black pressings for Europe, and features heavyweight spot-varnish printed jackets with foil-embossed graphics.
DEAD TO A DYING WORLD will be touring in support of Litany including a sixteen-city Western US tour running from October 2nd through 17th surrounding the street dates for the multiple formats of the new album. With the final details still being set in place, the band will make its return to Southwest Terror Fest in Tucson, Arizona as a main tour highlight, set to play on Thursday, October 15th with Thou & The Body, In The Company Of Serpents, Heat Dust, Gale, Abstracter, Hanta and Methra. A European tour is also being booked, with shows running through most of April, with several festival appearances included in the run. Further details will be released shortly.
