Chicago blackened metal quartet Immortal Bird has booked a European Tour, kicking off in a week and a half. Opening all dates will be Moshpig. Tickets are on sale now and the full slate of tour dates can be seen below.
The band continues to tour behind their acclaimed Empress/Abscess full-length, released in 2016 via a collaborative effort with Broken Limbs Recordings (vinyl/cassette) and the band’s own Manatee Rampage Recordings (CD/digital). As Ghost Cult commented at the time of its release:
When you see bands described as “genre-defining” or “indescribable”, the usual outcome is that they’ve got the odd weird bit, or they’ve bolted some styles together that are strange bed-fellows, yet when that gaze of Sauron is brought to bear on Immortal Bird it holds truer than most, as Empress/Abscess (Broken Limbs/Manatee Rampage) builds on the promise of their self-released debut EP Akrasia, and sees them moulding their ideas into more focused, while concurrently increasingly divergent from each other, beings.
The band continues to work on the follow up album to Empress/Abscess, which was tracked by Pete Grossmann (Weekend Nachos, Harms Way, Dead In The Dirt) at Bricktop Recording in Chicago, Illinois and mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Nader Sadek, Atheist, Origin etc.) at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves in Queens, New York.
