Vendlus Records is proud to announce the confirmed release of Portland, Oregon-based AERIAL RUIN’s upcoming full-length album Valleys Of The Earth, set for official release on April 26, 2011.
AERIAL RUIN is the solo project of Erik Moggridge, formerly of Bay Area rockers Old Grandad, Drift of a Curse, Epidemic and other heavy West Coast acts within the metal and rock spectrums, though the mesmerizing output of AERIAL RUIN is vastly different than his previous acts. Here, Moggridge focuses on beautiful, minimalist, organic passages in a very stripped-down singer/songwriter approach. Crisp acoustic guitars and harrowing layers of clean vocals combine in an engulfing culmination of simplistic, atmospheric bliss.
In support of the album’s coming release, AERIAL RUIN will be joining Agalloch and Worm Ouroboros on a trio of East Coast tour dates, hitting Raleigh, Baltimore and New York City this week.
AERIAL RUIN East Coast Dates:
3/20/2011 King’s Barcade – Raleigh, NC w/ Agalloch, Worm Ouroboros
3/21/2011 Sonar – Baltimore, MD w/ Agalloch, Worm Ouroboros, Vindensang
3/22/2011 Le Poisson Rouge – New York, NY w/ Agalloch, Worm Ouroboros
Full album details and promo copies of the new album Valleys Of The Earth will be available shortly. Stay tuned for further updates on the album and more AERIAL RUIN live appearance to be announced shortly.
