Metal Blade Records has announced the worldwide signing of Brooklyn-based experimental metal outfit Tombs. Blending bleak, post-punk minimalism with an attack of sludge and traditional black metal, Tombs has established themselves as an act that's as committed to consistency as it is to growth, developing smoothly (but never predictably) over the course of their career and earning a multitude of accolades along the way (including "album of the year" from Decibel Magazine for 2011's Path Of Totality!).
In addition to their acclaimed releases, Tombs has also become revered for their live shows, touring extensively with an array of artists such as Eyehategod, Pelican, Isis, Wolves In The Throne Room, the Secret, Ulcerate and 1349, plus appearing at festivals: Roskilde Festival in Denmark, Roadburn in The Netherlands and Psycho California and Maryland Deathfest in the U.S. Having joined Metal Blade's roster, the quintet is poised to continue the momentum that's been building since their formation in 2007.
Mike Hill (guitar/vocals) comments, "Metal Blade is a legendary label that has put out legendary records by legendary bands. It's an honor to be part of the organization."
Tombs will begin writing their fourth full-length and Metal Blade Records debut after their U.S. headlining tour this Fall. Kicking off Nov. 7, the trek also features Wolvhammer as support.
