Pallbearer drops surprise EP, "Fear and Fury"

Posted By on Fri, Aug 19, 2016 at 9:59 AM

Exactly two years ago today, Little Rock doom rockers Pallbearer released "Foundations of Burden," a densely layered behemoth of an album produced by Billy Anderson, who's lent his aural talent to recordings from Sleep, Melvins, and Red House Painters, among others. 

On the cusp of a U.S. tour with Baroness, the band released a surprise EP last week, "Fear and Fury," a three-track gothic vignette that hints at a slightly leaner sound, and that may help tide fans over until the next album comes out. The EP's title track was previewed by Decibel Magazine last year, and a remastered version of that song is followed by covers of Black Sabbath's "Over and Over" and Type O Negative's "Love You to Death." A vinyl version from Profound Lore Records is set to follow October 21, full of gorgeous art from Michael Lierly (brother of Mark Lierly, Pallbearer drummer and former member of Soophie Nun Squad) with the three tracks on Side A and an etching on Side B.
