Austin doom-crushers, DESTROYER OF LIGHT, have updated their Summer tour, which begins in just one week, then consumes the remainder of June and nearly half of July.
The upcoming tour is the first extensive tour from DESTROYER OF LIGHT since their Summer 2015 tour with Godhunter, which was booked in support of their Endsville split 2xLP. This new trek sees DESTROYER OF LIGHT taking their Endsville anthems back out to the masses, beginning in Fort Worth on June 16th, then running up through the Central and Midwestern states to the Pacific Northwest, before running down the West Coast on their way back to Texas, the final show going down in the band’s hometown on July 11th.
A brief trailer for the tour is posted HERE.
Additionally, DESTROYER OF LIGHT has been confirmed to take part in the second installment of Shadow Woods Metal Fest in Maryland this September, with the likes of Zud, Tombs, Mantar, Wino with Faith In Jane, Ghost Bath, Darsombra, Blood Storm, and countless others, around which another tour is being routed.
Following the recent departure of Keegan Kjeldsen, these tour dates will see DESTROYER OF LIGHT taking to the streets as a three-piece for the first time, with Jeff Klein handling lead guitars, Steve Colca on guitars and vocals, and Penny turner on drums, the trio strategically bulking up on extra amplification for the journey. The band is working on their new album, which will see release in early 2017 on a label to be announced at a later date along with more info on the permanent lineup.
Endsville is available through a joint release with Godhunter co-owned Battleground Records and DESTROYER OF LIGHT‘s Heavy Friends Records, the 2xLP bearing two slabs of 180-gram vinyl on two colors packed in a gatefold sleeve. Order the digital and vinyl HERE.
