Liverpool’s inconceivably heavy doom trio Conan have announced that they’ll be embarking on a full UK tour this March in support of their new album, ‘Blood Eagle’.
The band are raring to go:
We have been writing Blood Eagle since the moment Monnos made it into your collection. Soon it is time for us to show you what we have been up to on our upcoming UK tour. Expect aggressive, charging, droning heaviness on a scale not yet heard from us. This new release is an ancient bird of prey ripping at your flesh, an arrow through your chest from the darkness in a fog drenched wood, a black unicorn carrying you into battle, a hammer smashed into the earth by hands unseen.
…..TOTAL FUCKING CONQUEST…..
‘Blood Eagle’, the highly anticipated follow up to 2012′s planet shaking ‘Monnos’, was recorded at SkyHammer Studio by Chris Fielding, and mastered by the mighty James Plotkin (Khanate, O.L.D.), whilst the album’s stunning artwork was once again provided by artist (and Discharge guitarist!) Tony Roberts.
Conan have quickly built a reputation as being one of the heaviest bands in the blossoming UK sludge scene today, and with good reason. Their live shows have become infamous for their bowel rupturing volume and supreme heaviosity, so if you’ve never had the chance to have your eardrums pulped by the band’s monolithic riffs in the flesh, then this is one tour you certainly won’t want to miss out on!
The full list of tour dates is as follows:
14th NOTTINGHAM – Stuck On A Name
15th BOURNEMOUTH – The Anvil
16th BIRMINGHAM – The Asylum 2
