CONAN To Release New Album In August; New Live Dates Confirmed

While constantly touring all over Europe and the United States, British doom metallers Conan are currently putting the final touches on the follow-up to their latest 2016-studio record Revengeance. The band has unveiled the first details about their upcoming full length, titled Existential Void Guardian, which will be released on August 31st via Napalm Records.

Says guitarist/vocalist Jon Paul Davis: "Existential Void Guardian expands upon our previous lyrical and conceptual ideas. Bringing the listener's focus from the screens of our favourite arcade machines to the minds of the characters through who's eyes we view the 2 dimensional plane. Chris Fielding produced this album at Skyhammer Studio and we had audio wizard James Plotkin handle the mastering again. Artwork will be by Tony Roberts."
