MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT: Details On New EP; Euro-Tour Begins This Week

Ohio’s metalgaze magicians MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT break the silence in their release schedule since 2008’s critically acclaimed full-length Quietly with a monstrous new EP entitled The Violence Beneath.

To be released on April 27th, the four tracks on this behemoth mini-release encompass over 32 minutes of patented MOTA intensity. The band bring a slightly more metallic approach to some of the material, yet still bridge their cavernous buildups with beautiful, spiritual passages. The Violence Beneath is a multi-faced yet cohesive release, showcasing the band forging new paths artistically, and packs enough punch to tide us over until the next full-length.

The band will begin a month-long European tour this week, which includes stops at Poland’s Asymmetry Fest as well as the almighty Roadburn Fest in Holland.
