American doom titans APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE are slated to enter Russian Recording Studios in Bloomington, Indiana in mid-September to record the follow-up to 2014’s “Of Woe And Wounds”. Studio owner and engineer Mike Bridavsky (MAGNOLIA ELECTRIC COMPANY, M WARD, LIL BUB) will handle production duties. The album is slated for a March 2018 release via Italy’s Cruz Del Sur Music.
Comments guitarist/vocalist Chuck Brown: “Previous APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE records have been rather lengthy in duration, ranging from 60 to 70 minutes-plus. We’ve made a purposeful decision to make this next record slightly shorter, looking to clock in around the 45-minute mark. With the recording process being rather expensive and time-consuming, this time around, we wanted to afford ourselves more time to focus on getting things the way we want them to be rather than having to settle because of money or time constraints.
“Once the record is out in 2018, we’re all very much looking forward to going out on the road both at home in the U.S. and most definitely back to Europe again.”
“Of Woe And Wounds” was APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE’s third full-length overall and first for Cruz Del Sur Music. The Sludgelord said “Of Woe And Wounds” “Puts everyone on notice just how good they are going to need to be after hearing this one,” while Metal Temple said the album “Is the strongest of doses, the elite of the elite, and is so heavy that their music should come with some kind of a warning label.”
APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE have announced details for a European Tour this November.
The tour begins on Saturday November 12th, and is bookended with performances at both the DOOM OVER VIENNA festival in Vienna, Austria, as well as the HAMMER OF DOOM festival in Wurzburg, Germany.
