Castle - Metal Band tickets on sale Friday 3/25
Doom-tinged Metallers CASTLE released their third album, “Under Siege,” on May 20 via Prosthetic Records in North America and via Van Records in Europe. “Under Siege” – which was produced by Billy Anderson (Cathedral, Sleep, Neurosis) – was described by Metal Hammer UK as being “epic, heroic, tastefully melodic - and confirms Castle as one of the best metal acts to emerge in the last few years.”
CASTLE formed in 2009 and released their debut album “In Witch Order” on the German label Van Records in 2011. The album brought light to the newly-formed band and earned them “Album of the Year” honors from Metal Hammer Norway, as well as Roadburn Festival’s “Newcomer of the Year.” Shortly after, the band signed with Prosthetic in North America and released their critically acclaimed
sophomore album “Blacklands”, which earned them a Canadian JUNO nomination for “metal/hard music album of the year”. The band supported the release playing over 200 shows worldwide alongside The Sword, Conan, Intronaut and Pentagram amongst others and appearing at some of the undergrounds largest fests including Roadburn and the London and Berlin Desertfests.
Since the release of "Under Siege" earlier this year, CASTLE, which consists of Elizabeth Blackwell on Vocals/Bass, songwriter Mat Davis on Guitars/Vocals and Al McCartney on Drums, have toured Europe, Canada and the U.S. multiple times including stops at the 2015 edition of Heavy Days in Doomtown Fest in Copenhagen and the Acherontic Arts Fest in Oberhausen, Germany. They are currently finishing writing their 4th album and are set to begin a US East Coast headlining tour in November. For upcoming tour dates and further info please visit www.heavycastle.com.
