Australia's Whitehorse

Australian gods of death-doom Whitehorse are heading back to the states for a string of US dates, kicking it all off with shows at Chaos in Tejas and eventually creeping up the East Coast before heading out west. The first leg of dates, from Austin to NYC, will feature NYC doom favorites Batillus, including in Brooklyn on June 12th at Acheron. Additional support is still to be announced, but the show will set you back $10.

Whitehorse and Batillus will share a split 12" (!) due in late May via Vendetta Records.

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... Special thanks to Andrew Mittelman and Sound Generation for making this record happen, and to James Plotkin for his always-superb mastering skills.

More details on that release are on the way, but you can check out the art for the release below.

Whitehorse released their mammoth Progression and followed it up with a set of US dates last year. All current dates, and a stream of that LP is below.
