An incredibly welcome news item today as the crushing metallic doom heavyweights LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR have announced an end to their inactivity.
After a lengthy hiatus of at least five years since their last studio release, 2013’s scathing “Evil Power” (streaming), and just as long without a live performance, both of those will soon be remedied. The trio have just wrapped recording a new EP and have shared news on live plans for later this summer.
Over the recent Memorial Day weekend, Steven Rathbone (guitar/vocals), Donald James Barraca (bass) and Chris Wozniak (drums) gathered and hammered out the as-yet-untitled new EP. The EP is expected to arrive around the time frame that LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR will perform at Scorched Tundra Fest 2018 in Chicago, IL on Friday, August 31st.
The Scorched Tundra Fest performance will be an exclusive date for 2018 and will also mark the band’s first show in five years. You can find the fest’s line up below and tickets are on sale now HERE.
Friday August 31st:
Lair Of The Minotaur
Saturday September 1st:
In The Company Of Serpents
