“Skulking like wraiths in a blackened landscape, the band charges through eight fairly short songs… that grab you, rough you up, and leave you battered and bruised.” – Metal Bandcamp
Heavy doom/metal unit CASTLE will return to the road next week for their Endless Graveyard fall expedition. Slated to begin September 7th in Riverside, California and come to a close on September 30th in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the band’s latest trek includes performances at Shadow Woods Metal Fest and Stoned Meadow Of Doom.
“We’re looking forward to taking a break from writing the new record and hitting the road for one more East Coast run this year to play Shadow Woods Metal Fest in White Hall, Maryland and Stoned Meadow Of Doom Fest in Sioux Falls, South Dakota,” issues the band. “Both fests offer all-out amazing lineups and we’re proud to be part of them. Plus, we’ll be playing lots of killer shows along the way and it’s very possible if you’re at the show you going to hear a new track or two.”
Since the release of their most recent offering, Welcome To The Graveyard, which was issued last summer via Ván Records, CASTLE‘s massive near two-hundred-date worldwide takeover has included tours of the US, Europe, Canada, and the band’s first ever tour of Japan last December. See latest confirmed dates below.
CASTLE‘s WelcomeTo The Graveyard was captured by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Eyehategod, Ommadon et al) at Type Foundry Studios in Portland, Oregon and is currently available at THIS LOCATION.
If you missed it, be sure to check out CASTLE‘s visual accompaniment to the track “Black Widow,” compiled from band-filmed and “psych-edited” live footage from last year’s Canadian tour that visually pays homage to the ’80s metal spirit that inspired the song at THIS LOCATION.

“Welcome To The Graveyard is a document of their precision songcraft and that elusive ‘this world is horror and life is dark but so am I’ vibe perfected by Danzig and Ghost. And …Graveyard is an emphatic ad for an undoubtedly cool, smoky live show, too. Which is good because they’re definitely playing your town. Crank it up!” — MetalSucks
“…fantastic heavy metal of the most traditional kind, forged, I can only assume, in the fires of hell.” — The Sludgelord
“They’re the kind of band who could make you believe in heavy metal… their righteously individualized blend of thrash, traditional metal, doom, heavy rock ‘n’ roll, etc., speaks to some mystical bygone era when metal was about not compromising, putting a fist in the air against expectation and going on tour forever.” – The Obelisk
“…an irrepressible combination of ’70s doom, NWOBHM, musty-yet-in-your-face production courtesy of famed Neurosis/Melvins producer Billy Anderson, and the smoky, whiskey-stained vocals of Liz Blackwell…” – Metal Hammer
“CASTLE‘s most mature, well-crafted, inspiring work…” — Metal Kaoz
“…true-blue classic metal is hard to top. And so is CASTLE.” – Dead Rhetoric
