New Song Up, Tour EP in the Works, etc.
As we prepare to embark on our maiden voyage around the continental US alongside fellow tone and riff enthusiasts HULL and SALOME for 'Beard Destroyer Tour 2009,' we have posted a brand new song online. The song, entitled "The Division," is the first BATILLUS song to feature vocalist / synthesist Fade Kainer (Inswarm, Jarboe) and will only be available on a special limited-edition (75) Beard Destroyer Tour CDR-EP. The EP features hand-crafted packaging by Northern Owl and contains three songs at a total running time of 24:10. The tracks were recorded at Sterling Audio in Brooklyn, NY by Brendan Tobin (Red Sparowes, Made Out of Babies) and mastered by Josh Bonati.
As part of the tour, we'll be appearing at the Planet Caravan festival in Asheville, NC on September 19th alongside Clutch, Pentagram, Orange Goblin, Kylesa, Yob, Wino, Bison BC, Zoroaster, The Gates of Slumber, Tombs, Sourvein, and more. Below is the tour as it currently stands, if you can help with shows or a place to stay, get in touch!
