THE FORESHADOWING slated to support SWALLOW THE SUN in Europe

Rock the Nation presents: SWALLOW THE SUN on The Morning Never Came anniversary tour.
Finland’s SWALLOW THE SUN are known as the ultimate bringers of melancholic death doom and melodic death metal – a reputation they established right away with their mammoth debut album The Morning Never Came in 2003. This release is an absolute fan favorite, so it’s a perfect pick for an anniversary tour exactly ten years later. SWALLOW THE SUN will play The Morning Never Came in its glorious entirety on all dates – plus a whole bunch of other classic tracks!

Supporting SWALLOW THE SUN will be British kings of all things depressive ANTIMATTER and Italian goth doomers THE FORESHADOWING.

THE FORESHADOWING completed their first ever North American tour earlier this year. For those that missed the tour, limited quantities of left over merch can be found on-line at indiemerch.com/theforeshadowing. Additionally, the band recently completed a video that was shot throughout that tour. Fans can watch The Forsaken Son now on youtube HERE.

KYUSS LIVES Change Name To VISTA CHINO, Sign to Napalm Records

VISTA CHINO the band formed by John Garcia and Brant Bjork (formerly of Kyuss) inked a deal with Napalm Records. The album is set for an early fall release. More details will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Vocalist John Garcia said the following:

“Kyuss Lives is now VISTA CHINO! …it feels great just to write that ….and to say it out loud, feels even better. Now that our relationship with Napalm Records is official; it’s time to forget about the past year, move forward, and execute our original plan, which was to make kick ass music and tour the world!”

Drummer Brant Bjork added:

“We look forward to working with Napalm Records and we anticipate great support in rolling out the VISTA CHINO rock.”

Thomas Caser, Head Of A&R at Napalm Records commented on the signing:

“It’s with great pride we announce the signing of VISTA CHINO. After all the band has been through they are ready to rock! We at Napalm Records are thrilled to work with such talented artists and look forward to a long-lasting cooperation!”

Napalm Records and VISTA CHINO are excited to debut the first song from VISTA CHINO’s highly anticipated first full length album. Dargona, Dragona is available as an exclusive stream on the VISTA CHINO Facebook Page. When visiting the facebook page, clicking the “like” button will enable the audio.

Rising from the desert sands that birthed Kyuss Lives, VISTA CHINO’s sound is instantly familiar. With the trademark soulful vocals of John Garcia, the songwriting and production of Brant Bjork (drums) and the fuzz-laden riffage of imported guitarist Bruno Fevery, VISTA CHINO’s debut is one of the year’s most anticipated heavy rock albums. A new band born of a storied past, right now it’s about these players playing these songs.

VISTA CHINO’s first North American performance will take place at this year’s Orion Festival in Detroit, MI curated by Metallica. VISTA CHINO will play on Sunday, June 9 on the Frantic Stage. A full North American tour will be announced shortly.

VISTA CHINO Live:

6/9: Detroit, MI @ Orion Festival

7/25: Tienen, Belgium @ Suikerrock

ENFORCER Set To Release Single Next Month

In advance of their new studio album Death By Fire (available : February 1), ENFORCER will release a 7-inch single called Mesmerized By Fire on January 18.

Tracklist:
A-Seite: Mesmerized By Fire
B-Seite: You Can Be (non album track)

Besides the limited edition on vinyl, there will also be a digital release.

Olof Wikstrand comments:

“Mesmerized by Fire is more or less the title track from the Death By Fire album. I think within four minutes it captures pretty much everything about Enforcer: intensity and power mixed with a touch of melody and melancholy. The B-side is a cover of Nagazaki‘s You Can Be. It is a track with mega potential from a band that unfortunately never made it in the 80s.”
