BLACK BREATH Locks Down August West Coast Tour

Following their tour of Australian in April, followed by an East Coast run including a massive set at the fifteenth anniversary of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, and most recently West Coast touring alongside the likes of Rotten Sound and more, BLACK BREATH today announces their next run of live confrontations.

Four new cities have been scheduled for BLACK BREATH‘s demolition in early August, including Portland, Santa Cruz, Los Angeles and Oakland. The Seattle savages will be flanked by backup provided by Mammoth Grinder on the first three dates and Obliterations on two of them, which end up seeing all three bands taking part in The Power Of The Riff in LA with The Obsessed, Final Conflict, From Ashes Rise, Hirax, M.D.C., Iceburn, Bastard Noise, Early Graves, Dead In The Dirt and a ton of others. The next day in Oakland will see Early Graves and Obliterations jointing once again.

This newest run will be preceded by a hometown gig on July 13th as BLACK BREATH provide direct support for the legendary Autopsy playing their first Seattle gig ever, with additional support from Scolex and Bone Sickness.

BLACK BREATH‘s second LP Sentenced To Life was released by Southern Lord in March 2012, the band’s ferocious blend of death, hardcore and rock influences crushing everything in its path. With thirty-three minutes of their most energizing d-beat injected death metal hymns date, they just keep touring on this record, and won’t stop until you’re all paralyzed and mangled in their wake.

“…Black Breath is possessed of that certain something for which many bands pine, but few will ever capture. 9/10” – Blabbermouth

“…while it makes an abrasive mark on first exposure, it grows more and more absorbing with each successive listen… 4/5” – Alternative Press

“The sounds of Black Breath are a Kobe beef cow that’s fallen into an overstocked piranha pond… Distinct and unholy.” – The Stranger

“Faster. More solos. More blastbeasts. More gang vocals. More pissed. If this record doesn’t give you whiplash, then you’re listening to it wrong.” – SLUG Mag

“The transfer of potential and kinetic energy releases constant barrages of chained-up rage.” – Invisible Oranges
