Brooklyn's self-proclaimed filthy black metallers MUTILATION RITES, who recently announced dates for a spring tour with recent Relapse signees INTER ARMA - have been confirmed to perform at this year's New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, which takes place at The Palladium in Worcester, Mass. The band is scheduled to perform at the festival on Friday, April 19th alongside labelmates TRAP THEM and HOLY GRAIL, as well as the likes of ANTHRAX, HATEBREED and EXODUS. They will then play a pair of northeastern US dates alongside BLACK BREATH.
The tour will feature Will Lindsay (INDIAN, ANATOMY OF HABIT, ex-NACHTMYSTIUM) filling in on bass for Ryan Jones, who had previous spring touring commitments with TODAY IS THE DAY. This will be the group's first tour since joining labelmates SKELETONWITCH for the second half of the extensive US Abomination tour in the fall.
Mutilation Rites' Prosthetic debut, Empyrean, was perhaps the label's most critically lauded release of 2012. The album was produced by Kevin Bernstein (TRIAC) and is currently available on CD or 180-gram black vinyl (the latter courtesy of Gilead Media) via the Prosthetic webstore. In addition, Empyrean is currently on sale for $5 through Amazon MP3.
