METAL ROAD WARRIORS CASTLE ANNOUNCE WEST COAST TOUR DATES
The aggressively touring, doom-infused heavy rock outfit CASTLE
will continue their live sieges throughout the summer on two West Coast
treks. Leg one – which includes a performance at Utah's CrucialFest
(Goatsnake, Royal Thunder) – commences next Wednesday in San Diego,
while the newly-announced second leg kicks off in Los Angeles on Aug.
15. Dates for both can be found below.
Continuing to ride the success of their critically acclaimed 2014 release "Under Siege," CASTLE
were most recently seen trekking across Europe after spending a
majority of the past year on the road with bands including Lord Dying,
Anciients, Conan, Cauldron and more. Consisting
of eight tracks of riff-driven melodic metal praised by Chicago Reader
for its "Iron Maiden-ish guitar leads" and "Ozzy-like vocals," "Under
Siege" was recorded by Billy Anderson (Cathedral, Sleep) at Sharkbite
Studios. Check out music videos for four songs from the album:
