Brooklyn metal boundary pushers Tombs will follow their 35-minute "EP" Monarchy of Shadows with a second 2020 release, an hour-long full-length called Under Sullen Skies, on November 20 via Season of Mist (pre-order).
"The original strategy assumed we would be on the road for most of 2020," said frontman Mike Hill with "a lamenting laugh" (bio writer Kevin Stewart-Panko's words). "We had a sick tour with Napalm Death planned right after the EP’s release. We were going to record the new full-length before the tour and have it come out in the fall. There was all kinds of tour talk and plans and 2020 would have been a tour-de-force of Tombs activity in the United States and Europe. Obviously, none of that is happening, but we’re still going ahead with the record."
