Foundations Of Burden is PALLBEARER is the follow-up to 2012’s monumental release, Sorrow & Extinction. On this new album, PALLBEARER have created an album much more advanced, moving, and sonically glorious than their debut, continuing the band’s ascent from the doom metal scene into the mainstream music world.

And now, you can listed to the new track ‘The Ghost I Used To Be‘ in the player below, this is the first new PALLBEARER song to surface from their forthcoming new album, Foundations Of Burden, which will be available on August 25th from Profound Lore Records and is available for pre-order now at THIS LOCATION.

Formmed in 2008 by Joseph D. Rowland (bass) and Brett Campbell (vocals/guitars), PALLBEARER grew from the fertile underground metal scene of Little Rock, AR. A year after their formation, the band released their first three-song demo (with guitarist Devin Holt), which garnered well-deserved attention. PALLBEARER went on to release Sorrow & Extinction in early 2012 on well-respected Canadian indie label Profound Lore, and instantly made waves among listeners and critics who found the band’s compositional paradox of vulnerability and might unparalleled in the metal world. Sorrow & Extinction proved to be an unequivocal masterpiece in any genre of music and compelled PALLBEARER to reach even further creatively for what would come next.

Fast forward to February of 2014 as PALLBEARER headed to Portland, OR (with drummer Mark Lierly) to Type Foundry Studio with legendary producer/engineer Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Melvins, Sleep, Swans) to lay down six tracks that would become Foundations Of Burden. This new album delves even deeper into PALLBEARER ‘s melodic contexts, which adds a new and compelling dimension to music which has long since proven itself to be inexorably captivating; if Sorrow & Extinction created massive waves in the metal scene, Foundations Of Burden will create the stuff of legends.
