Check out some tracks from Rwake's forthcoming album

Posted By on Thu, Aug 25, 2011 at 2:20 PM

Rwakes new album, Rest, will be released Sept. 27.
  • Rwake's new album, "Rest," will be released Sept. 27.

Rwake - the state's premier exporters of unrelentingly epic, crushing, crusty, blackened, psychedelic metal - have a new album coming out Sept. 27.

"Rest" is the follow-up to 2007's "Voices of Omens" and if these two songs are any indication, it is a dooooozy.

While the album won't be released for another month or so, it might be advisable to pre-order it from Relapse Records, especially if you want to make sure you can get your hands on the 180-gram or olive-colored vinyl editions. Vinyl pressings of Relapse stuff tend to go quick. I'm still kicking myself for not picking up that double-LP copy of Neurosis' utterly essential "Through Silver in Blood" when I had the chance back in '96.

Lars Gotrich, of NPR's All Songs Considered, caught up with Rwake vocalist CT last month.

Also, the band hits the road for a few shows in late September, kicking off Sept. 21 at White Water Tavern. The rest of the dates are after the jump.

Rwake Tour Dates:

Sept. 21 - Little Rock, AR White Water Tavern

Sept. 22 - St. Louis, MO Fubar

Sept. 23 - Rock Island, IA Rock Island Brewing Company

Sept. 24 - Chicago, IL The Abbey

Sept. 25 - Nashville, TN The End

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
