Official press release:
Denver black metal act Wayfarer has issued the cover art, track listing, and other details of their impending third LP, World’s Blood, nearing May release through Profound Lore Records. The band also announces new spring tour dates with the likes of Primitive Man, Krallice, Forn, and more.
A reflection of the Rocky Mountains and high plains of their native Colorado, Wayfarer tells a story that is uniquely American. Drawing influence as much from the dusty, dark Americana of the “Denver sound” and the scores of epic Westerns as they do the fury and melody of black metal, Wayfarer brings something original to the table with a sound that is at once aggressive and honest. Their third album World’s Blood paints a hallucinatory picture of the Western frontier, and the haunting presence of the blood in the soils from a culture lost to time.
Wayfarer recorded World’s Blood in the winter of early 2018 at The Thousand Caves in New York under the watchful production of Colin Marston. The cover displays an antique photograph by Edward S. Curtis taken in Montana in 1908.
Profound Lore will release World’s Blood on May 25th; audio samples, pre-orders, and more will be released in the weeks ahead.
World’s Blood track listing:
1. “Animal Crown”
2. “On Horseback They Carried Thunder”
3. “The Crows Ahead Cry War”
4. “The Dreaming Plain”
5. “A Nation Of Immigrants”
Wayfarer has just announced a month of tour dates in conjunction with the release of World’s Blood, including a run through the southern realms of the country with Primitive Man and Forn on their way through Austin Terror Fest where they’ll also join Acid King, Gnaw, Krallice, and many more. Wayfarer then travels onward alongside Krallice through the western states, including a set at the TRVE Brewing Anniversary Fest, a performance at Los Angeles Strikefest, and at the Fire In The Mountains Gathering. Watch for additional details and tour dates to be announced.
