This special run of new performances will serve as the band’s final stateside shows in support of their heralded fourth LP, Celestial Lineage, and the band are excited to perform alongside an awesome range of brilliant acts on the ten-date expedition, including Master Musicians of Bukkake, Mount Eerie, Ash Borer, Worm Oroboros, and Chelsea Wolfe.

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM: NPR Track Premiere & Tour Updates

August 9th, 2011

Today, mainstream media outlet National Public Radio is hosting the public’s first listen to “Woodland Cathedral,” the fifth track off of Cascadian black metal act WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s upcoming LP, Celestial Lineage. The majestic “Woodland Cathedral” is surely one of the most melodic and serene arrangements within WITTR’s latest triad of albums, –  a trio that began with 2007’s incredibly organic opus Two Hunters, segued by 2009’s more aggressive Black Cascade album, and now climaxing with Celestial Lineage – and is a primal example of what the newest LP from one America’s paramount black metal acts is capable of delivering.

 

Tune in HERE to immerse yourself in the hymn.

 

Celestial Lineage is set for release in North America via Southern Lord Recordings on September 13, 2011, and is inarguably one of the most anticipated black metal releases of the entire year.

 

In related news, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM have expanded and adjusted their previously announced first tour in support of Celestial Lineage, which embarks at the end of August, and will now run into early October. WITTR will be joined by Louisiana sludge-crushers Thou for a solid chunk of the Canadian and Midwest/Northeast U.S. dates, while their brethren in Portland-based Megaton Leviathan will join much of the second segment of the tour. Due to the underground nature of this tour, the details for some engagements will be announced at a later date; stay tuned to WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s official website for constant updates to this voyage.

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM: Album Info, Artwork, North American Tour Unveiled

July 25th, 2011

With WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM‘s fourth full-length album, Celestial Lineage, now completed and nearing its September 13, 2011 release date via Southern Lord Records, we today unveil the album’s full song listing and album artwork.

 

The cover art for Celestial Lineage was created by photographic artist Alison Scarpulla, and the package designed by Aaron Turner (Isis, Twilight, Hydra Head Records). The beautiful, organic layout puts the album conceptually right in line with the band’s previous Two Hunters and Black Cascade releases, and fittingly completes this triad of releases from the band. View the magnificent album art here.

 

Celestial Lineage Track Listing:

1. Thuja Magus Imperium

2. Permanent Changes in Consciousness

3. Subterranean Initiation

4. Rainbow Illness

5. Woodland Cathedral

6. Astral Blood

7. Prayer of Transformation

 

In celebration of the new album, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM will take to the road throughout North America in several waves to kick off the touring cycle in support of Celestial Lineage. With very D.I.Y. ethics fueling the tour dates, the horde will perform in many wooded locations and smaller, off-beat venues along the way. Some of these specific locations for the shows won’t be announced until just days before some of the shows, where fans are urged to reference WITTR‘s official website for exact show locations and/or directions. More dates are being added and additional tours will follow, but at press time the confirmed routing is posted below.

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM: New Full-Length Begins To Take Shape

May 10th, 2011

Black metal cultivators WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM are currently fully immersed in the process of harvesting their next full-length album.

 

The new album, though still untitled, will be the third WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM full-length for Southern Lord Recordings. Aaron and Nathan Weaver, the founding and only full-time members of the band, will collaborate once again with producer/mystic Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Boris) who produced WITTR’s mammoth Two Hunters and Black Cascade albums.

 

This week Aaron Weaver supplied some insight on the creation of the new album. “I got into a daily rhythm of greeting the weak winter sun in the morning, working outside in the rain until midday, then retiring to our studio to work on the music late into the night. I did this nearly every day for two months. Quite a monastic lifestyle actually. I didn’t see many people. We were totally lost inside the record. Once the record was conceived from beginning to end, we met with Randall and started to slowly build the tracks at his studio in Seattle. I think that this album will be the best thing that Wolves in the Throne Room has created. We’ve never been able to devote this much time to writing and recording. It feels like this will be the culmination of everything we’ve done up to this point.”

 

In addition to the Weaver brothers, the album will also feature vocal contributions from Jessika Kenny, who contributed so much to the transcendent tone of the band’s massive Two Hunters album.

 

More information on the album will be brought forth in the coming weeks, as the band complete the album and prepare for a surely busy year of WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM actions worldwide.
