CASTLE: Occult Rock Conjurors Announce West Coast Tour With Mos Generator This November

The occult rock conjurors/perpetual road warriors in CASTLE today confirm a short run of Fall West Coast dates with Washington state riff rockers, Mos Generator. The trek will run from November 25th through December 4th and includes Year Of The Cobra on select dates.

The latest run of shows build upon CASTLE's massive North American live takeover, which commenced on June 15th, included a three-week run of tour dates surrounding their appearance at the Maryland Doom Fest, and another month-long headlining tour that ran from July 17th through August 20th. The band will take to the streets yet again for a month's worth of Canadian dates starting tomorrow in Quebec and rolling through September 30th in Toronto. In October, CASTLE will bring their rituals to the stages of Europe for a fifteen-date trek which will include performances at Desertfest Belgium and Old Grave Fest V in Bucharest. In December the tireless duo will return to the stage, this time in Japan with Guevnna! More dates will be added in the coming weeks. Stay up to date and visit or

CASTLE continues to tour in support of their Welcome To The Graveyard full-length issued earlier this year via Ván Records. Captured by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Eyehategod, Ommadon et al) at Type Foundry Studios in Portland, Oregon, Welcome To The Graveyard is currently available at THIS LOCATION. You can also check out videos for "Flash Of The Pentagram" and "Hammer And The Cross" HERE.

Welcome To The Graveyard has reaped critical accolades from fans and critics alike. Metal Hammer hails the band's "irrepressible combination of '70s doom, NWOBHM, musty-yet-in-your-face production courtesy of famed Neurosis/Melvins producer Billy Anderson, and the smoky, whiskey-stained vocals of Liz Blackwell," while Slug Magazine notes, "Welcome To The Graveyard is evocative of the heavy music I grew up on. 'Black Widow' is almost as if Lemmy's wraith returned to Motörhead for one last reunion track, epitomized through a youthful throat. Often, a doom metal group attempts to reach back into the Book Of The Dead and revive a slice of the style only to sound like a hopeless knock-off. CASTLE exemplify our generation's appreciation for the metal genre's foundation while providing a multitude of unique and eclectic intricacies that make their sound distinctive." Metal Bandcamp concurs, "Skulking like wraiths in a blackened landscape, the band charges through eight fairly short songs (only one squeaks past the five-minute mark) that grab you, rough you up, and leave you battered and bruised." In a 4.5/5 rating, Metal Riot names Welcome To The Graveyard, "a must own heavy metal purchase for 2016," furthering, "Through constant touring and refining of their bluesy witchy minimalist but raw powered thrash these champs of heavy metal bang for your buck have only gotten better with each release." Adds Angry Metal Guy, "If you haven't caught onto CASTLE yet, you're not taking a thing about your career as a metal fan seriously... Hear this, feel the power and glory and put on the vest!"
