Los Angeles-based post-apocalyptic sludge outfit Ancient Altar released their self-titled debut and subsequent "Tidal" video last year to absolutely non-stop rave reviews, and they're not slowing down: Their sophomore album, Dead Earth, is out September 1st on LP via Black Voodoo Records, with a cassette version to follow through Midnite Collective. The band will also do a quick run of tour dates starting TONIGHT in Salt Lake City, with a bigger tour in the fall which will be announced soon. Today, The Obelisk is hosting a premiere of the nearly 13-minute album closer "Void," "which," HP Taskmaster muses, "in addition to being the longest inclusion on the outing is also the richest in terms of the emotional and thematic drive on display."

**Preorders for the LP are available on Black Voodoo Records' website HERE.**
