INTER ARMA Announces Headlining US Tour Dates, Completes New Album
After having completed a number of US tours in 2015 with the likes of pessimistic Nashville sludge crew Yautja and sludge legends Kylesa, INTER ARMA have announced new touring plans for Spring 2016. The band will be embarking on a series of headlining US shows this April that will see the band storming the US South, Midwest, and Northeast. A full list of dates is available below.
Last fall, Richmond, VA’s INTER ARMA announced their plans for their highly-anticipated third full-length record. The as-yet-to-be-titled album follow-up to 2013’s Sky Burial will again be recorded and produced at Dark Art Audio with Mikey Allred (Yautja, Hivelords), where the band has produced its last two releases. The record is due out early 2016 via Relapse.
INTER ARMA’s two latest releases, 2014’s The Cavern and 2013’s Sky Burial, can be streamed via INTER ARMA‘s official Bandcamp HERE.
INTER ARMA Tour Dates:
The versatile and genre-defying five-piece INTER ARMA (consisting of T.J. Childers – Drums, Steven Russell – Guitars, Trey Dalton – Guitars, Mike Paparo – Vocals, Joe Kerkes – Bass) formed in 2006 and released its crushing debut full-length Sundown via Forcefield Records in 2010 to much critical acclaim. Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for itself in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances. In 2012, INTER ARMA released a 12″ EP entitled Destroyer (Toxic Assets Records), which was strong enough to catch the attention of Relapse, who signed the band later that year.
Last year, INTER ARMA released The Cavern, a 45+ minute, single-song EP. Originally written during the summer of 2009, but reworked and perfected over the last few years, The Cavern was recorded in 2013 during breaks from the relentless touring the band completed with the likes of Baroness, Russian Circles, Ulcerate and numerous others. In 2013, INTER ARMA released the monolithic Sky Burial, a doomy, hour-long excursion through unpredictable textures and sound. The band’s raw, uninhibited approach merges doom metal, psychedelic sludge, black metal, noise and much more, and has established the band as a uniquely powerful force in modern extreme metal – both The Cavern and Sky Burial found INTER ARMA widespread critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, Rolling Stone, and many more publications worldwide.
