Denver-based progressive doom collective DREADNOUGHT will kick off their US tour tonight. Set to commence on June 21st in Colorado Springs, Colorado and run through July 7th in Kansas City, Missouri, the first half of the trek includes shows supporting Montreal’s Big|Brave.

DREADNOUGHT will be touring in support of their stunning Emergence full-length released last month via Profound Lore. Engineered and mixed by Andy Patterson (Subrosa) and mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate), with art and design by Mark Facey, the band’s fourth long player takes their signature multiplex and pictorial sound to new sonic realms delving more into heavier and darker sonic territory.

Emergence is available on CD, LP, and digital formats via Profound Lore. For physical preorder options go to THIS LOCATION. Find digital orders HERE.

There are a multitude of layers that establish DREADNOUGHT’s sound, making them one of the more unique sounding bands in today’s doom/dark/progressive metal circles. Comprised of a myriad of influences that seamlessly sew their sound together, from prog, doom, folk, jazz, classical/chamber, avant-garde, and even a little bit of black metal managing to find its way into DREADNOUGHT’s audial tapestry, Emergence is the culmination of the band’s continued development and evolution, one that began with 2013’s Lifewoven LP followed by 2015’s Bridging Realms and 2017 LP A Wake In Sacred Waves.

Thematically, Emergence resonates with elements of flame, tying together similar structures between the ancient connection of nature’s most destructive yet purifying forces and the human condition. Emergence‘s five tracks follow the realities of this age-old cycle of rebirth, beginning with chaotic annihilation of what is, and leaving behind nourishing ash to enrich what is to come.. A new being arises from the smolder, forged by the fires of self-destruction and trials of every lifetime before it.
