Becomes Astral announce new record Paleblood Sky; album release tour with Eye Of Horus and Into Eternity

Official press release:

Today, Ontario-based death metal outfit Becomes Astral announced their album Paleblood Sky, which has been set for release on August 18, 2017. Paleblood Sky includes six pulverizing tracks and was recorded and mixed by Christian Donaldson and Marco Frechette at The Grid. Upon the release of Paleblood Sky, the band will set out on their album release tour throughout Canada, starting on the Eastern leg with Eye Of Horus and later adding Into Eternity for the Western leg of the tour. Dates and venue information are listed below. Lead guitarist Layne Richardson comments:

“This is our breakthrough into the minds of the creators, early development in our quest of outcasting ourselves. Dark souls will manifest themselves in these hymns of insanity.”

Becomes Astral is a progressive death metal band based out of Guelph, Ontario. Formed in the later months of 2013, they quickly got to work on releasing their debut EP, The Mind, which was released in October 2014. The Mind was recorded and mixed by Don Levasseur at Atlantic Studio. After their debut release, Becomes Astral toured heavily for the following year, covering west coast Canada, and two Ontario and Quebec tours. Playing steadily since, Becomes Astral has made themselves a force to be reckoned with, allowing the band to sell out half of their last tour in Ontario. In early 2016, Becomes Astral took a break from playing live to write a full-length record, and returned to shows in late 2016. In December 2016 the band entered The Grid Studios in Montreal, QC with Christian Donaldson of Cryptopsy as a producer and came out with a piece of music they are proud to call their own, Paleblood Sky.

Paleblood Sky is set for release on August 18, 2017 and can be pre-ordered here. Follow Becomes Astral online for new music, announcements, shows, and more.
