Brooklyn, New York’s TOMBS‘ are set to release their new album Savage Gold on June 10th (North America), June 9th (UK/Europe/World), and June 6th (Germany/Benelux/Finland). Renowned tattooist Thomas Hooper who is responsible for the band’s previous album covers created the stunning artwork (see below).
Today the first song from Savage Gold has been released. The song Edge of Darkness can be streamed on Soundcloud here or on YouTube here. The song can also be heard on YouTube, where there is an accompanying video detailing the deluxe LP version of Savage Gold. A trailer featuring the first samples of music from Savage Gold can be viewed here.
Savage Gold focuses the awesome strength of TOMBS‘ previous works into one brilliantly dark post-punk and extreme black-metal masterpiece. Recorded and produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore), Savage Gold both expands upon the moody post-punk foundations that TOMBS’ prior albums explored while also bringing out the band’s most traditionally metal moments yet.
TOMBS will be taking part in the Temples Festival at Motion in Bristol, UK on May 3rd. They will play alongside Neurosis, Conan and Moss.
Savage Gold is available for pre-order now here. The album will be available in the following formats: Limited Edition Deluxe Gold Vinyl 2XLP (with expanded 12 page booklet featuring the graphic art of acclaimed artist and tattoo artist Thomas Hooper) Standard Black Vinyl 2XLP, CD and digital formats.
