The return of the mighty Gorguts is upon us! The highly-influential Canadian technical death metal stalwarts have announced that their new album will be entitled Colored Sands and will see a North American release date of September 3rd. The band also announced a string of U.S. headlining dates in September leading to and from North Carolina’s Hopscotch Festival, which are listed below.
9/5 Springfield, VA @ Empire
9/6 – Raleigh, NC @ Hopscotch Festival
9/7 – Wilmington, DE @ Mojo 13
9/8 – Worcester, MA @ Palladium
This is obviously exciting news for Gorguts fans, as it has been 12 years since Gorguts released their previous opus, From Wisdom to Hate, and fans have been impatiently chomping at the bit for new material. Gorguts’ current lineup includes founding guitarist/ vocalist Luc Lemay, guitarist Kevin Hufnagel and bassist Colin Marston, both of Dysrhythmia fame, and drummer John Longstreth of Origin fame. I know that I, for one, am super psyched to hear this new album.
