Cover art, track list revealed
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Legendary U.S. heavy/doom metal band, Pentagram, reunites with Peaceville Records for its new studio album, Curious Volume, to be released on August 28.
11 classic heavy metal compositions with catchy hooks from core band
members Victor Griffin, Greg Turley, and Bobby Liebling (Pete Campbell
on the drums completes the band's line-up), the album was recorded with
Swedish producer Mattias Nilsson at studios located in Maryland and
Virginia. Additional recording took place in Tennessee with
Grammy-Award-winning producer Travis Wyrick, who also produced
Pentagram's previous album, Last Rites. The album's cover artwork was provided courtesy of Richard Schouten.
To support the new album, the band has tours planned in North America and Europe throughout 2015/2016.

Formed in the early 1970s with a debut album Relentless
releasing in 1985, Pentagram has survived through more than four
decades filled with adversity and triumph to become the legendary
international act it is today, firmly stamping its name into the heavy
metal history books. Although once viewed as a cult act but with a
strong and dedicated global fan base, Pentagram has enjoyed a recent
surge in popularity due in part to the 2011 documentary, Last Days Here,
which follows the trials and tribulations of a troubled rock star,
Pentagram's lead singer Bobby Liebling. With a DVD release set for this
fall on Peaceville's label, the documentary has garnered international
recognition on the film festival circuit and has won several awards,
including "Best Music Documentary" at the International Documentary Film
Festival in Amsterdam.
The band recently released its double DVD collection, All Your Sins, featuring over 7 hours of live footage spanning a period of three decades.
Stay tuned for more information on Pentagram and Curious Volume, out this August on Peaceville.
