Pallbearer at Europa in 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)
pallbearer

Foundations of Burden, the highly anticipated sophomore LP from doomers Pallbearer hit Pitchfork Advance this week. The six-track, nearly 55 minute album continues on in the spirit of Sorrow and Extinction with melancholic leads, redwood-thick riffs, and sorrowful singing. If there's a shift, it's slightly more progressive songwriting that gives their epics a knottier quality. The album will be out via Profound Lore Records on August 19 and it's available for preorder now.

Update: You can now stream it below via bandcamp.

In addition to their album and their Euro tour with YOB, they have a previously discussed stateside run with Tombs and Vattnet Viskar which was recently expanded. After their now-sold-out show happenning at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus on October 27, they'll hit the same venue again on October 28. Tickets for that show go on sale Tuesday (8/12) at noon.

Updated dates are listed below...
