THE GATES OF SLUMBER adds dates with Hail!Hornet to their upcoming US tour!

Performances includes stops at Maryland Deathfest and Chaos in Tejas

The Gates of Slumber have added tour dates with Hail!Hornet following their US tour with Church of Misery. The full tour will begin on May 24th in Providence, RI and includes a June 1st performance at Chaos in Tejas. The Gates of Slumber and Hail!Hornet will play six shows from June 11th – June 16th throughout the Midwest. The complete routing is available below.

Doom doyens The Gates Of Slumber released their fifth full-length album The Wretch on April 4th 2011. Featuring eight slabs of punishing doom metal, The Wretch is the Indianapolis trio’s finest work to date. Recorded during the cold British winter of 2010 at Orgone Studios, London and produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano, the album sees the band taking their trademark blend of skull-crushing riffs and pounding rhythms to new heights and marks a return to the slower all-out doom tempos of their early albums.

Highly respected Japanese doom metal band CHURCH OF MISERY has announced a U.S. headlining tour that will kick off on May 24 in Providence, RI. Presented by Brooklyn Vegan, the two week trek will showcase one of metal’s most bizarre and exotic bands and one that Rolling Stone called “a dynamic articulated hell, like the Tokyo-Blue-Cheer crush of Boris but grounded in the British white-blues nightmares of early Seventies Black Sabbath.” True fans of heavy music cannot miss this rare chance to see Japan’s true masters of doom!
