RINGS OF SATURN has been announced as one of the acts set to participate in The Coffin Dragger Tour with Fit For An Autopsy, Dark Sermon, and headliners Thy Art Is Murder, the massive trek set to consume most of April and May with nearly forty tour dates confirmed across the country. The tour begins in Tucson, Arizona on April 6th and snakes its way eastward, hitting as many cities as possible through the final show May 19th in Worcester, Massachusetts. Tickets for The Coffin Dragger Tour go on sale Friday, February 26th at 10am (local time).

Following its release through Unique Leader Records in October 2014, RINGS OF SATURN‘s remorseless, jaw-dropping, Lugal Ki En, took the #116 spot on the Billboard top 200 chart, #3 on the Heatseekers/New Artist chart and #26 on the Independent album chart. The album also slaughtered the Hard Music chart taking the #12 position, as well as #41 on the Rock chart. A cataclysmic display of over-the-top technical death metal, Lugal Ki En surges with nearly forty-five minutes relentless, cyber-infused deathcore destruction, based on a lyrical concept in which the Aliens wage war on the angels and demons of the universe after having conquered humanity. The album was produced by Brette Ciamarra at Studio 344 (Kamikabe, Those Who Fear, Trophies), and features conceptual art pieces by Mark Cooper of Mind Rape Art.

Metal Injection issued a 9/10 review, proclaiming, “Lugal Ki En is a refined and mature sounding Dingir. Speedy catchy riffs, fast beats, choppy transitions, and even some expressive timing is thrown in small segments enhancing specific qualities and making the entire album a rich experience… If technical extreme metal is a genre that you enjoy, there is no doubt Lugal Ki En will satisfy.” Another 9/10 write-up from TechnicalDeathMetal.com adds, “This time around RINGS OF SATURN let the songs evolve more naturally, and while the spastic bursts of jabbing high notes still exist, listeners can hear a variety of influences and new elements as well.” MetalSucks issued, “… it might be the heaviest thing laid down in years,” and Headbang Or GTFO’s 4.5/5 review states, “The band add a lot more to this album with background noise and technical guitar playing that actually feels natural this time around and not random wild guitar playing. Lugal Ki En is one of the better technical death metal albums of 2014 and their best album yet.”
