Denver’s Khemmis has just been confirmed to take part in the 2018 installment of Decibel Magazine‘s annual tour, joining Enslaved, Wolves In The Throne Room, and Myrkur. The tour promises to be one of the most exciting treks for fans in 2018, one with a heavily diverse roster of alluring acts.
Preceding the tour, Khemmis will be returning to the studio in January to record their third LP, once again with Dave Otero at Flatline Audio. The album will be scheduled for late summer 2018 on 20 Buck Spin in North America and Nuclear Blast Records in Europe. It will be the highly anticipated follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2016 outing, Hunted.
In other Khemmis news, Orange Amplifiers have welcomed guitarists Ben Hutcherson and Phil Pendergast, along with bassist Dan Beiers, as public ambassadors. All three are now representing the company and involved with massive new backline upgrades. Drummer Zach Coleman is also now sponsored by C&C Drums and Paiste. The C&C kit is made from their Gladstone shells, a 7-ply maple shell, which provide a deep and resonant tone. Read band statements and see more on these sponsorships at Khemmis‘ Facebook page HERE.
