Watain Tour N. America Behind "Lawless Darkness" // Show At Santos Party House on Dec. 2nd

Watain Tour N. America Behing Swedish black metal overlords Watain, who unleashed their fourth full-length Lawless Darkness earlier this summer, will return to North American soil later this fall. Presented by Decibel Magazine and sponsored in part by Fangoria, Metal Injection and Killer Tours, the unholy trek will commence on November 6 at Mr. Smalls in Pittsburgh and bludgeon its way through over two dozen cities before coming to close on December 4 at the Opera House in Toronto. Support will come from Goatwhore and Black Anvil.

The tour stops at Santos Party House on Dec. 2nd and tickets are $16 in advance. The show is all ages and doors are at 7PM.

Lawless Darkness was released via Season Of Mist on June 7. Recorded at Necromorbus Studio (Deathspell Omega, Funeral Mist, Ondskapt et al) in Alvik, Sweden with cover art by Zbigniew M. Bielak, the record continues to reap critical accolades from press nationwide and abroad. In addition to scoring cover spots in some of metal’s most esteemed publications including Decibel, Terrorizer, and Subterranea (Metal Hammer’s extreme metal supplement), "Reaping Death," the latest single off Lawless Darkness, was certified gold in Sweden for sales in excess of 10,000 copies.

At the Sweden Rock Festival this past June, Watain played a tribute set to Bathory - audience filmed footage is below.
