Swedish doomers Monolord have announced a new album, Your Time To Shine, due October 29 via Relapse (pre-order). It's a 5-song, 39-minute album that was recorded by drummer Esben Willems in the band's own studio, and speaking about the album, Esben says, "To me, it’s an honest representation of how I feel about the current state of humanity."

The first single is "The Weary," which guitarist/vocalist Thomas Jäger says is "us telling a story to future generations that we are sorry but we fucked it all up." Riff-wise, Monolord don't shy away from Sabbath worship, but Thomas' vocal delivery really makes it his own. Listen and watch the David Brodsky-directed video below.

Monolord are also touring Europe and the UK this fall with Blackwater Holylight, and they'll come to the US in 2022 with Firebreather. The US tour kicks off in Berkeley, CA in March and hits Chicago, NYC, Austin, and more, before wrapping back up on the West Coast at LA's Teragram Ballroom on 3/27.

The NYC show happens on March 16 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show will be on sale soon. All dates are listed below.
