Atlanta-based trio SONS OF TONATIUH released their second LP, Parade Of Sorrow, via Hydro-Phonic Records earlier this week, the album booming with nearly forty minutes of new material via ten lumbering sludge-bred numbers. Memorializing its release, today online portal Ad Hoc is hosting a stream of the massive seven-and-a-half minute album closer “Fallout,” AT THIS LOCATION.
The follow-up to their 2010 self-titled LP, Parade Of Sorrow which Creative Loafing fondly compared to “a plague of locusts swarming for the attack,” offers an even filthier, more dirge-ridden Southern-fried SONS OF TONATIUH than ever, making it a must-have for fans of Eyehategod, Buzzov*en, Floor and the like. The album was recorded in Athens, Georgia by Kyle Spence of Harvey Milk and features artwork by Chris Parry.
The band are preparing to launch their thirteen-date Beckoning The End Tour 2012 in support of the new album late next week. Live coverage of the shows, interviews with the SONS… and review copies of Parade Of Sorrow are available now worldwide via Earsplit PR.
