GODHUNTER vs. DESTROYER OF LIGHT: Endsville Split Double-LP And Widespread US Tour Coming This Summer

GODHUNTER vs. DESTROYER OF LIGHT: Endsville, a collection of brand new end-time material from both acts, is being finalized for co-release between the two acts this Summer. Additionally, the bands will collaborate on a major widespread tour together, which will see them both raiding the East Coast US for the first time.

GODHUNTER vs. DESTROYER OF LIGHT: Endsville bears twenty minutes of new material and a cover track from each band. Tucson/Vancouver-situated sludge faction, GODHUNTER, captured the tunes for their platter at WaveLab Studios in Tucson by Dana Fehr (North, Juarez), the newest in a steady line of titles since their 2014-released debut LP, City Of Dust, including their GH///OST/:/S split LP with Secrets Of The Sky and The Outer Dark collaborative 7″ with Amigo The Devil. The adjoining slab by Austin-based psychedelic doom outfit, DESTROYER OF LIGHT, follows the band’s 2012-released self-titled debut album and 2014’s Bizarre Tales Vol. II EP, recorded at Orb Recording Studios in Austin, engineered and mixed by Matt Meli. The entire album was then mastered by James Plotkin.

The two 12″ EPs will be united in a gatefold setup on two different colors of vinyl, in addition to a digital release, the cover artwork to feature custom sculpture art by Bestia Dentro and photography by Andrew Weiss. Endsville will see a collaborative release through GODHUNTER co-owned Battleground Records and DESTROYER OF LIGHT‘s Heavy Friends Records on July 28th. A video trailer, the artwork, track listing and singles from the album will be released over the coming weeks.

In support of their joint recorded venture, a day after the release of the record will see the start of the GODHUNTER vs. DESTROYER OF LIGHT Endsville 2015 Tour, which will bring both bands through most of the US, and will see them both infiltrating the East Coast states for the first time. With twenty-five cities on the chopping block between July 29th and August 22nd, approximately half of the venues on the routing are confirmed, including both bands’ participation in the first Death To False Metal Festival in Hamden, Connecticut on August 14th and 15th with Whiplash, Krieg, Secrets Of The Sky, Valkyrie, Imperial Triumphant, Nightbitch, Immortal Bird, Secret Cutter and many others. Preceding the tour, DESTROYER OF LIGHT embarks on a three-week tour out to Psycho California, performing May 15th with the likes of Cult Of Luna, Russian Circles, Eyehategod, Old Man Gloom, Bedemon, Cave In and many others before touring home, the whole tour running from May 6th through 31st.
