Currently celebrating their fifteenth year in existence, Italian trio, UFOMAMMUT, will return to North America for their first major tour of the continent in 2015, including their first trip to Maryland Deathfest. With only a brief 2008 West Coast venture in the US under their belt, the full-on upcoming tour will see the band spending several weeks stateside, bringing their magical, mysterious and pulverizing doom metal to the masses in support of their acclaimed ORO double-album set, released in 2013, as well as their next full-length release, which the band is currently preparing to record in October for release again through Neurot in early 2015. UFOMAMMUT will also be releasing a massive DVD entitled XV through their own Supernatural Cat Records this October, with more than three hours of material documenting their decade-and-a-half together. The band is also set to perform at Up In Smoke in Pratteln, Switzerland with Fu Manchu, Kadavar, Blues Pills, Brant Bjork, Dozer, Naam, Conan and tons more on October 3rd and 4th.
Oregon’s psychedelic doom metal trio, YOB, is currently embarked on a massive European tour with Pallbearer, supporting their recently-released seventh studio full-length, Clearing The Path To Ascend. The widely lauded album is currently thriving with great accolades pouring in from media outlets and fans worldwide, being recognized as another massive achievement for the now institutional act, and marks one of the most essential extreme albums of the year. Their first release as part of the Neurot family, the album was just released by the label on CD and all digital download, with Relapse Records releasing the vinyl version this week. Following the ongoing five-week voyage which is permeating every corner of the European continent, YOB will tour heavily in North America as well, with new tour dates to be announced in conjunction with their MDF performance in the coming months.
