In advance of the official detonation of their self-titled debut, SCOUR – the extreme metal collaboration uniting the talents of Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint etc.), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), Chase Fraser (Continuum, former Animosity, Decrepit Birth), and Jesse Schobel (Strong Intention) – is pleased to unveil closing track “Tear Gas” for mass devourment.
Comments Engemann of the track, “‘Tear Gas’ was the final song written for the debut EP. It was completed backstage on the Cannibal Corpse/Cattle Decapitation tour last year. Every day Jarvis and myself would ‘SCOUR’ for an isolated, quiet spot to set up my portable recording studio. I remember specifically Rob Barrett walking in during the tracking of this song, and gave his nod of approval [laughs]. This song has a chorus section at the end that is unique to this album. Once it was finished, I sent it to Philip to write the lyrics. Of course, The Kid completely just nailed the chorus. ‘Let the war be waged…’”

Together, SCOUR conjures a harrowing strain of blackened, grind-infused sonic murk; dark, deviant and distinctly unlike any of their root bands. The band’s six-track, self-titled debut was mixed by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Cobalt, Khemmis) and will see release July 15th, 2016 through Housecore Records on CD and vinyl formats.
