The ear-bleeders in Seattle’s BLACK BREATH are preparing to level the stages of over three-dozen venues throughout North America this Summer supporting headliners, Goatwhore. Slated to commence on Monday June 8th in Austin, BLACK BREATH will deafen the masses with their maniacal brand of hardcore-laced metallic wrath with additional support provided by Ringworm and Theories. Following the close of the tour on July 12th in Atlanta, the band will embark on a short run of headlining dates through Kansas, Colorado, Utah and Idaho.

Reinventing the classic Stockholm deathcrush of Dismember and Entombed through a merciless d-beat hardcore delivery, BLACK BREATH has dominated the media and fans alike with their recorded output tenfold with each release since their 2006 inception, having since become an American metal powerhouse and major priority for Southern Lord. The band has overthrown city after city throughout North America, Europe, Japan and Australia on tour alongside the likes of Nasum, Nails, Converge, Victims, Tormented, Corrosion Of Conformity, Christian Mistress, Noothgrush, Rise and Fall, Ringworm, Yautja and Mutilation Rites, has supported Neurosis, Napalm Death, Rotten Sound, Entombed, Sunn O))), Wolves In The Throne Room, Autopsy, DRI, Amorphis, Tragedy, From Ashes Rise and others, and has performed at major festivals and events including Maryland Deathfest, Sonisphere, Hellfest, Tuska, Fluff Fest, SXSW, The New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, The Power Of The Riff and more.

On their latest bout of live trauma, BLACK BREATH will be touting the tried and true, pit-inducing anthems from their previous releases alongside several brand new tunes from their as-yet-untitled third LP, which was tracked this Winter with Kurt Ballou (Converge) at his Godcity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts. The album’s final details are being plotted for release this Fall, once again through Southern Lord Recordings. Stand by for further updates in the coming weeks.

In the meantime a live set from Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar at a one-off December gig following the recording sessions in Salem, is playing HERE, and a New York Times piece on the band from the same gig can be found HERE.
