Dallas-based apocalyptic doom act, DEAD TO A DYING WORLD, has just wrapped-up tracking their sophomore LP, Litany, with Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Melvins). Featuring collaborations and contributions from members of Sabbath Assembly, Pallbearer, Pinkish Black, and Ecocide, the album will be delivered in a massive 2xLP setup. Anderson will complete production on the album as the final factors of the album’s impending release later in the year are sorted in the coming weeks.
Additionally, DEAD TO A DYING WORLD has slated a July tour with improv-jazz/ritual act, and labelmates, Unconscious Collective, the trek also including nearly a week of shows with psychedelic doom unit, Uzala. From July 11th through the 26th the bands will caravan through the Western half of the country, through the Midwest, into the Northeastern region, and down the West Coast to DEAD TO A DYING WORLD‘s Texas locale.

Founded in 2010, DEAD TO A DYING WORLD incorporates cello, viola and upright bass elements and more into a morose but intimidating end-time style of doom, with a putrid, blackened weight to their waves of slow-motion, Apocalypse inspired doom dirges and a harrowing double-vocalist approach. With several tours in different regions of the countries since inception, the band’s self-titled 2xLP album was produced by Phillip Cope of Kylesa and released via Tofu Carnage Records in 2011.
