LOATHE | unleash video for ‘New Faces In The Dark’ ahead of Japan and China tour

Written by on 11th October 2019

British experimental metal five piece, LOATHE, have today launched a haunting video for their recent single ‘New Faces In The Dark’. Grab a first watch here: 

 

You can purchase/stream the single here, alongside another recently released track ‘Gored’: https://www.shrptn.co/loathe

The video lands shortly before their Japan debut tour kicks off – LOATHE will be hitting the road with Sworn In on Monday for a 4 date run covering Aichi, Osaka and Tokyo, which also includes a solo show in Shinjuku, Tokyo. The run will then be followed by LOATHE‘s debut China tour, a 3 show run with label mates Crystal Lake across Beijing, Nanjing and Shanghai. The full dates read as follows:

Oct 12th – Sinkiba COAST (*True North Festival) *CANCELLED DUE TO TYPHOON*
Oct 14th – Nagoya Grow (Nagoya, Aichi)
Oct 15th – Osaka Clapper (Shinsaibashi, Osaka)
Oct 16th – Hatsudai WALL (Shinjuku, Tokyo) *Loathe only
Oct 17th – Shibuya Cyclone (Tokyo)
Oct 19th – Tango 3F, Beijing
Oct 25th – Daoxiang Music Space, Nanjing
Oct 27th – Ichigo Indoor Music Fest, Shanghai Namco

New singles ‘Gored’ and ‘New Faces In The Dark’ are the first new music LOATHE have released in over 18 months. The caustic ‘Gored’ also came paired with an unsettling video, which can be viewed here:

 

Both tracks see some of LOATHE’s most esoteric and experimental moments yet; winding from brutally unrelenting heaviness, to weighty post-metal and ethereal post-rock. Fans who have caught LOATHE performing recently have been treated to live previews of the tracks, as well as their punishing and ever-evolving live show.

LOATHE are currently working on their next studio album, due in 2020. Stay tuned for news in due course.

 

 

 

LOATHE also have UK and EU tour dates on the horizon for December, alongside Stray From The Path, plus The Devil Wears Prada and Gideon. The run is set to consist of six UK show dates, followed by fifteen dates across mainland Europe. The Bristol show on December 3rd will be a special show, with Knocked Loose (headlining) and Malevolence on the bill.
