As was recently revealed, metal-melding doomsters CASTLE will release their new album ‘Deal Thy Fate‘ on October 19th via Ripple Music.
The revelations continue today with the unveiling of the album artwork, tracklist, and pre-order options. Also, last but not least by any stretch, is a lyric video première for the incredible new song “Wait For Dark“.
Singer/bassist Liz Blackwell offered the following about the track:
“We knew ‘Wait For Dark’ would be a great lead-off single to grab the listener and bring them back for more. It encompasses many different musical elements that are featured throughout the record. Lyrically, it’s one of my favorites and we thought doing a lyric video for this track would be a cool way for our fans to experience the song.”
Guitarist Mat Davis adds:
“’Wait For Dark’ is a song and title that came from living in the desert. It’s about surviving in a hostile environment, amongst hostile elements.”
“Wait For Dark” is a thunderous heavyweight that channels dark vibes amid its huge riffs and stellar vocal delivery. Check out the song below, pre-order is available now for physical [HERE] and digital [HERE] formats.
CASTLE has also announced a run of Canadian tour dates and a full European tour, including European festival appearances to coincide with the new album’s release. These special shows include Desertfest Belgium (Oct. 14), Malta Doom Metal Fest (Oct. 19), Blue Moon Fest (Oct. 20), Doom Over Vienna (Nov. 10), and Dutch Doom Days (Nov. 24).
