We are pleased to announce that Brutal Panda Records is now accepting pre-orders for our split seven-inch with Bay Area heavyweights Kowloon Walled City. Kowloon's principle guitarist slash vocalist slash our good friend Scott Evans joins us for a cover of "Lava" by Ministry while our very own Fade Kainer offers his vocal chords to Kowloon for a cover of "Anthem" by Godflesh. You can stream the latter at Stereogum, but for the former you'll have to shell out a whopping six-ninety-nine-plus-shipping to Brutal Panda. It's the perfect Christmas gift for that annoying Coldplay-lover in your life. Order here.
Public Assembly in Brooklyn will be hosting a release party for 'Concrete Sustain' on Saturday, April 27. Joining us will be Inter Arma and Earthling. It's an early show-- should be something like Earthling at 8, Inter Arma at 9, and us at 10. We'll have CD and vinyl copies of the new album for sale, of course. Tickets are available now.
Did you manage to make it through all eleven minutes and 39 seconds of yesterday's video? Did it give you humorrhoids, too?
Cvlt Nation has a different take, saying that 'Concrete Sustain' is "the sound of modern doom, and each track here holds dear to its heart the essence and core of the doom genre, yet Batillus twist it and turn it onto something new and different and a marvel to experience."
Pick up the imported Vendetta pressing vinyl (limited colored vinyl pictured above, we also have standard black-- these records look fantastic!) from us when you see us at a show and you'll get a code to download MP3s of the album courtesy of Seventh Rule.
'Concrete Sustain' will be out March 19 on Seventh Rule and around the same time in Europe on Vendetta. We are going on tour to... whatever the kvlt version of "celebrate" is. Click through for the dates. Also, Twitter.

We have a new full-length coming in March called 'Concrete Sustain.' That's the cover above. We like it quite a bit and hope you will as well. If you want to read all about the who, what, when, where, how, etc. you can read the "official press release" over here. Stay tuned and we'll hook you up with some new tracks in the coming weeks.
UPDATED 11/6/12: We'll be playing at Saint Vitus two weeks from today with Nachtmystium, Mutilation Rites, Lord Mantis, and Sannhet. Jarboe and Bruce Lamont evidently had to cancel. For a lineup like that, it's worth coming out on a Monday. We'll be playing some new songs, including this one called "Concrete," from our forthcoming LP which is currently being mixed by Sanford Parker and will be released next spring. In unrelated news, our friends Kowloon Walled City have a new record coming out on December 4th called 'Container Ships.' There's a track streaming at Brooklyn Vegan and we strongly recommend checking it out.
Our split 12" with Whitehorse is out now on Vendetta Records. Order the LP from Bis Auf's Messer and/or download the tracks from our bandcamp page or purchase from us or Whitehorse directly when we tour with them next month. The first 100 orders will receive limited-edition white vinyl*, the rest will receive black. Check it out:
* We will have a handful (8, to be precise) of the white vinyl on tour with us for those who catch us at one of the early shows.
In May, Vendetta Records will be releasing a split 12" featuring two new Batillus songs on side A and a new song from Australia's Whitehorse on side B. That's the cover above, by Scott Irvine. Special thanks to Andrew Mittelman and Sound Generation for making this record happen, and to James Plotkin for his always-superb mastering skills.
We'll be touring with Whitehorse in June in support of this release. Dates, which span the eastern half of the US, will be announced shortly.
Batillus / Whitehorse Split 12" Tracklist:
Side A - Batillus 1. Silver Mortar 2. Feral
Side B - Whitehorse 1. Dark Age
Here's a preview of "Silver Mortar" from a recent show in Brooklyn (thanks to unARTigNYC):
If you can't catch us with Yob and Dark Castle tomorrow at Le Poisson Rouge, we'll be playing on July 23rd at St. Vitus in Greenpoint to celebrate the release of our split seven-inch with Mutilation Rites. Phantom Glue is also playing. More info here.
From Shinebox Recordings, limited to 500 copies on red vinyl. We'll have some with us on the upcoming tour in July (dates are below), but in the meantime, you can listen to it here, and pre-order it here.

'Furnace' is officially out today via Seventh Rule, and we'd just like to take a moment to thank anyone who has ever been to a show, bought a t-shirt, booked us, written about us, listened to us, told a friend about us, let us crash at their place, bought us a beer, played a show with us, or otherwise helped us out. We're not gonna name names, because we'd inevitably forget someone and that would be a total dick move, but you know who you are. Thank you.
You can download our new record, 'Furnace,' for free from any number of illegal rapidshare / mediafire / megaupload torrent blogs and sites. We have no problem with this whatsoever. But, we suggest you download the record directly from the source, for a number of reasons. 1.) You know exactly what you're getting: no tinny 92k mp3s, no mislabeled tracks, etc. 2.) Options: you can choose mp3, FLAC, or other formats. 3.) Name your own price, and yes this includes 'free.'
Ultimately, any way you choose to get ahold of 'Furnace' mp3s is ok with us. We're just glad you're listening. And, should you choose to own the record in a physical format, order it from Seventh Rule or Vendetta, check your local record store (if they don't have it, ask them to order it), or get it from us at a show.
If you didn't have an opportunity to grab a copy of the super-limited tour-only hand-screened and numbered 'Furnace' LP, well, now's your chance to snag one. The Deciblog is giving one away and all you have to do is answer a silly trivia question. Here's a hint: drecksau.
Tour dates for our March tour with Hull are available now. See below or go to the shows page. We'll have CD copies of 'Furnace' for sale at these shows, as well as a special tour-only vinyl pressing limited to 55 with a silk-screened jacket. These LPs will only be available from us directly at these shows and we will be sure to reserve a handful of copies for our friends and fans in New York.

Our debut full-length album, 'Furnace' (that's the cover above), will officially be out on April 19th via Seventh Rule. The vinyl version will be out slightly earlier, in time for Record Store Day, which is on April 16th.
Before the official release date, however, you'll be able to snag a CD or a very special, very limited vinyl tour-pressing from us directly when we tour down to SXSW and back with our brothers in Hull. That pressing, featuring a cover custom silk-screened by hand (and different from the one above), will be limited to 55 (fifty five!), and will only be available from us directly-- not in stores, not online.
1) ...And The World Is As Night To Them
4) The Division
5) What Heart
