Starting on Thursday, Born Of Osiris will be hitting the road with Unearth for the month of November. Support will also come from The Contortionist, Obey The Brave, and Wolves At The Gate. Then, in February, the band will be touring Europe with After The Burial, Monuments, and The Haarp Machine.
However, the band is not only content hitting the road. They’ve also announced that they are close to completing the songwriting process for their follow-up to The Discovery and will enter the studio in the spring with Nick Sampson (I Am Abomination) to track the new effort.
Lee McKinney (guitars) states: “I would say the direction of this album is along the lines of The Discovery, but definitely a lot heavier and a lot more focused when it comes to song structure. We’re trying to give each song a powerful, thematic feel. This next record takes all of the best aspects of The Discovery and develops the ideas even further. We already have so much material that we plan on revising and refining over the next few months. While we do that we will still continue to write more and in the end I think we’ll pick the strongest 10-12 songs so we can drop the best BORN OF OSIRIS record to date.”

Yesterday, After The Burial debuted their video for Pendulum, which was shot at an all girls Catholic school (god I love those outfits…). Well, turns out one video just isn’t enough for these guys. Greedy bastards… Well, today the bring us a video for Your Troubles Will Cease And Fortune Will Smile Upon You. This, by the way, is one of many candidates for “Longest song title”.
After The Burial wanted to push some boundaries when the idea for filming a video for Pendulum came up. So what better way to do that than by filming it at an all-girls Catholic school? Kudos to you gentlemen for the brilliant idea. My eyes appreciated the outfits and my second brain took over for a few minutes. Not that a few minutes is my average time, haha. Oh no, it’s usually a few seconds!
Because there aren’t enough rock/metal festivals during the summer, Sumerian Records and The Pantheon Agency in association with Arkaik Clothing are putting together the All Stars Tour. This tour features a massive line-up including Emmure, In This Moment, Iwrestledabearonce, and many, many more. You can check out the full line-up along with the tour dates after the jump.
Editor’s Note: The art show is in Augusta, not Atlanta. Album artist Aaron Crawford will be premiering his first solo art show, ‘Pause And Claws’, on May 6th at Sky City in downtown Augusta. The art pieces center around strange and wondrous (read: terrifying) animals straight from Aaron’s mind. Aaron has done artwork for such bands as Attila, Suicide Silence, After The Burial, Veil Of Maya, Kittie, The Used, and more. Check out some examples after the jump as well as an exclusive quote for Bloody-Disgusting.
It seems lately that the big craze now is 7 or 8 string guitars: The lower the tuning, the more brutal the music. At least, that’s what bands think. More often than not, poor tones and generic songwriting plague what could otherwise be an interesting use of extended range instruments. After The Burial (interview here) tout their dual wielding 8 string guitarists as a huge part of their appeal. So does it help them or hinder them on their latest endeavor, ‘In Dreams’? Check out after the jump.
Bloody Disgusting has just scored an exclusive audio interview with Trent Hafdahl, guitarist of After The Burial. The interview goes over the new album ‘In Dreams’, Thanksgiving plans, the upcoming December Decimation tour and some of Trent’s favorite horror movies. Check after the jump for this exclusive audio interview.
‘In Dreams’ comes out this Tuesday courtesy of Sumerian Records. READ MORE
