Seattle’s sludgy doomsters Samothrace are preparing to embark on a full U.S. touring trek later this month. Following the trek, the band will be focusing on the completion of two new recordings, including their third LP.

The band will be joined on the run by He Whose Ox Is Gored for the entire tour, while Void Omnia will also join for the California dates. The tour also includes sets at several festivals, including Maryland Deathfest, 71 Grind Fest, and Northwest Terror Fest.

Once the tour is wrapped up, Samothrace will spend the next several months completing the writing process and taking on recording tasks for several upcoming releases – including an impending split LP – as well as their anxiously-awaited third studio album.
