Arkansas’ backwoods doomsayers RWAKE have announced a series of year-end shows to close out 2012. The festivities will commence December 19 in the band’s hometown of Little Rock. The band will then hit Nashville on December 28 and wrap up with a special show in Atlanta with Neurosis, Primate and US Christmas on December 29.
RWAKE recently premiered their disturbingly controversial new video for “It Was Beautiful, But Now It’s Sour” via Noisey at this LOCATION. The 12-minute short film, directed by Danish horror aficionado Casper Haugegaard, features devastating slow motion close-ups of actual pig fetuses being absolutely annihilated by a variety of implements.
RWAKE released Rest, their first album in over four years, last year to immense critical acclaim. The harrowingly beautiful progressive/doom/sludge masterpiece is currently available for streaming HERE.
