DEAD TO A DYING WORLD: Dark Metal Septet Begins East Coast Tour This Week; Elegy LP Out Now Through Profound Lore


Texas-based dark metal septet
 DEAD TO A DYING WORLD this week embarks on their East Coast tour, continuing to tour in support of their acclaimed Elegy opus, which saw release through Profound Lore Records in April.
 
DEAD TO A DYING WORLD‘s Elegy is a foretelling of a post-human world which explores themes of loss, grief, and the dawn of a new ecology through the eyes of a lone wanderer. The last human grieves the end of humanity, reflecting on the temporal insignificance of man and the sixth extinction caused by the Anthropocene – the end of our kind brought about by our own hubris, greed, and desire for power over one another. Elegy marks the third chapter in the trilogy, which explores our relationship to our world by reflecting on our past, present, and impending future.
 
Produced by Billy Anderson, Elegy stands as one of the most riveting productions from the acclaimed producer in recent times. The album sees the band’s seven full-time members welcoming contributions from a small cast of guest musicians, including Thor Harris (ex-Swans, Thor & Friends), Jarboe (ex-Swans), Dylan Desmond (Bell Witch), and Emil Rapstine (The Angelus), Pablo C. Urusson (Sangre de Muerdago), and Tim Duffield (ex-Sans Soleil). The new contingent of guests helps elevate the narrative of Elegy to a new plateau.
 
DEAD TO A DYING WORLD‘s new tour will begin in Chicago this Saturday, July 20th followed by shows in Pittsburgh, Richmond, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Washington, Asheville, and New Orleans through July 27th. In addition to the band’s already sprawling lineup, DEAD TO A DYING WORLD will be joined by guest musicians Emil Rapstine from The Angelus on vocals (who also toured with them on the recent West Coast run), and Zach Jobin from Cleric and Tyrannosorceress on percussion.
 
Elegy available through Profound Lore Records on 2xLP, CD, and digital platforms via the label webshop HERE via Bandcamp HERE. Also see the video for “Syzygy” at THIS LOCATION.

DEAD TO A DYING WORLD: Deluxe 2xLP Re-Envisioning Of Debut Featuring Previously-Unreleased Leonard Cohen Cover Out Friday Via Tofu Carnage Records

Texas-based blackened apocalyptic doom septet DEAD TO A DYING WORLD is pleased to release Reprise – a fully remixed, remastered, reimagining of the band’s 2011-released self-titled album. Set for release this Friday, December 14th, this modernized reinterpretation of the album has been remixed by Billy Anderson and includes a previously-unreleased cover of Leonard Cohen‘s “Dance Me To The End Of Love,” for which a video has been created.
 
The massive seven-member DEAD TO A DYING WORLD lineup on this album was comprised of Mike Yeager on vocals, Mikhail Theihov on cello and vocals, Leigh Ann Jensen on upright bass, Sean Mehl on guitar, Rhodes piano, and percussion, James Magruder on bass guitar, guitar, piano, and percussion, Stefan Gonzalez on drums, with viola performed by Eva Vonne. The album was initially recorded during the summer of 2010 at The Jam Room, produced by Phillip Cope, engineered by Jay Matheson and Steve Slavich. The cover of “Dance Me To The End Of Love” was recorded in the spring of 2017 at The Echo Lab, engineered by Matt Pence, with post-production and remix by Billy Anderson, and mastered by James Plotkin. The artwork was handled by Sera Timms and the layout/design by Sean Mehl.
 
DEAD TO A DYING WORLD remarks of the release of Reprise, “Rather than simply repress the long out-of-print self-titled album, we wanted to revisit the material and present it in a way we believe it was meant to be. With Billy Anderson at the helm once more, these songs breathe new life into the original material just as they had when they were written. Many thanks to our friends who made this record such a meaningful origin in so many ways.”
