As Pacific Northwest black metal clan, Wolves In The Throne Room, re-releases their debut album, "Diadem Of Twelve Stars" next week, the band announces several updates to their North American tour this September, including their participation in Basilica SoundScape in New York.
Concurrent with the recent tenth anniversary of Wolves In The Throne Room's first LP, "Diadem Of Twelve Stars", Metal Injection issued, "The album is widely viewed as a key album in re-imagining the atmosphere surrounding the black metal genre," dubbing it, "a pivotal album in the landscape of United States black metal." Invisible Oranges also commemorated the anniversary, their feature praising in part, "What makes Diadem so important, you may ask? Simple. For many of us, it was the first of its kind... There is a tangibility to the song structures on Diadem that allows listeners to immerse themselves in a primordial world, unmarred by human touch while also reaching out to human sensibilities."
"Diadem Of Twelve Stars" sees new life through the band's own Artemisia Records next Friday, June 17th, on 2xLP, CD, cassette, and digital formats. Pre-orders can be placed HERE.
Since announcing their impending North American tour in September, which includes a set at the massive Pop Montreal Festival, two of the three Wolves In The Throne Room NYC shows as well as the Chicago show are now sold out, and the Philadelphia show has been relocated to a larger venue. Additionally, the band has announced Sabbath Assembly as direct support for several shows, and Feral as direct support on several others.
Adding another special highlight to the tour, Wolves In The Throne Room has been confirmed to take part in Basilica SoundScape 2016 in September. Basilica SoundScape is a two-day festival comprised of the some of the most forward thinking musicians and visual artists working today, taking place in Hudson, New York, where WITTR will join the likes of Explosions In The Sky, Angel Olsen, Cobalt, Youth Code, and more. The event is organized by Basilica Hudson, a non-profit multidisciplinary arts centre supporting the creation, production, and presentation of arts and culture while fostering sustainable community. Founded in 2010 by musician Melissa Auf der Maur and film-maker Tony Stone, Basilica Hudson makes its home in a spectacular solar-powered reclaimed 1880s industrial factory. Weekend destination events comprise the core of Basilica Hudson's music, performance, film, food, and literary programming, alongside regular film screenings series, art exhibitions, and other community gatherings.
