Dark Quartereris issuing a vinyl release of their new album Ithaca in September via Cruz Del Sur Music, which was issued on CD on April 25, 2015 via Metal on Metal Records.
Ithaca is a concept album inspired by the 1911’s poem of the same title by a Greek poet, Konstantinos P. Kavafis (Constantine P. Cavafy), who used Odysseus’s travel from the Trojan Wars back to his home-island as a metaphor for the journey of life; the goal is not important, but the journey itself. Stylistically, it’s a mix of ’80s epic heavy metal with ’70s progressive rock, and some elements of doom.

The US vinyl pressing of Faith No More’s forthcoming album Sol Invictus has been delayed and will not meeting the May 19th release dates after the band was unhappy with the mixes.
Band bassist Billy Gould issued a statement on the matter, as the delay will be around four to six weeks:
“Hey Guys, Billy here, I wanted to give you an update personally: We received our test pressings for the vinyl lps and noticed something sounding odd about the US version. Odd, as in, not so good. We’ve since identified the problem and have decided to fix it. I don’t think anyone, especially a vinyl fan, wants an album that sounds anything less that what it should. What this means, however is that the US version of the vinyl lp has been delayed by 4-6 weeks. All vinyl outside the US is still scheduled for release on May 19, as originally planned; this only affects the US vinyl. Also, for US vinyl purchasers, you still will be able to get a copy of the album via digital download on the release date. Yeah, I know it’s a drag. sonically this will be a big improvement. Hope you understand. Bill“
An exclusive clear vinyl pre-order and more are currently up for grabs here (US) and here (international).

Darkest Hour will be celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band with a tour and Dead To Fall will be supporting. The band will be performing their 2005 album Undoing Ruin in its entirety at the shows. Their long awaited vinyl reissue of their first LP The Mark Of The Judas is being put together for release around the time of the shows.
Band guitarist Mike Schleibaum commented on the milestone:
“To say we feel lucky to have been able to pursue this crazy dream of rocking and rolling for so many years would be a tremendous understatement. The honor that it has been to travel the world and make new friends while partying with old ones has not been lost on us. Playing live has always been at the heart of what we do as artists and therefore we felt it only right to commemorate our 20th anniversary as a band. We usually don’t take much stock in nostalgia, but we plan on making this one hell of a party; so we’ve invited long time duders of the highest order, Dead To Fall to ensure that there will be no one left standing. These shows are for everyone else as much as they are for us, so we hope anyone who has felt a connection with the band over the years will come out and enjoy this party with us!”
