Little Rock doom metal heroes, Pallbearer, have released their brand new single Atlantis b/w Thorns (Live) courtesy of the Sub Pop Singles Series.
The band stated ” We’re very excited to finally be able to share another piece of new material with you. As many of you probably know by now, Pallbearer has always been very ‘album-oriented’ — when we are writing music, it’s often with the big picture in mind. However, we also thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to release pieces that might not necessarily fit into a larger album. Thanks to the Sub-Pop Singles Series, we were thrilled to have the chance to write a brand new song, ‘Atlantis,’ plus also document how ‘Thorns,’ a song from our previous LP had taken on a different bit of attitude after being road-worn for a couple of years.”
Pallbearer have also announced tour dates including two Arkansas dates featuring their 2012 classic Sorrow and Extinction played in full.
” Things have been relatively quiet on our front here, after wrapping up the ‘Heartless’ touring cycle last October — but we’re coming out of our album-writing hibernation period to perform some select shows in July.
Things didn’t quite line up for us to perform a show commemorating the 10th anniversary of the band last year, but we’ll be performing two dates in our home state that will unofficially be a celebration of one whole decade of Pallbearer in the books so far! We’ll be performing ‘Sorrow & Extinction’ + other selections from our history at both of these shows. We’ve also teamed up with our esteemed friends at Lost Forty Brewing to bring a new limited beer, a Czech-style Pilsner dubbed ‘The Legend’ (plus other surprises!) which will be available at these dates. And, since these two Arkansas dates are over a week apart, we managed to sneak a few other regional shows in there too. Hope to see you there!”
