Arkansas doomsayers RWAKE have posted another new track off their upcoming Rest full-length courtesy of Pitchfork. Check out “Was Only A Dream” HERE.
Their first new offering in over four years, Rest is less a set of songs than a perpetually evolving, deeply emotional set of missives heralding the end of times. The album is nothing short of epic, and sure to be one of the best progressive/doom/sludge metal records of the year.
Rest will see its North American release on September 27 on CD, digital and double LP. Pre-order options for the CD and vinyl can be found at THIS LOCATION.
In addition, RWAKE recently announced a handful of shows for late September. This mini-tour will kick-off with a hometown show in Little Rock and include stops in St. Louis, Chicago, Nashville, and more. A listing of tour dates and cities can be found below.
