Indian unveil new track and confirm Roadburn Festival appearance

In time to derail all those new year’s resolutions, blackened doom unit Indian have unveiled their new track Directional. The song is taken from the band;s upcoming album From All Purity, which is slated for release via Relapse Records later this month. The track can be listened to below.

In addition to the unveiling of their new track, Indian have also announced their first European date lof 2014 which will take place at Roadburn Festival on 12th April at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

From All Purity will see its official release via Relapse Records on CD/LP/digital in North America on January 21st, 2014, Germany/Benelux/Finland on January 17th, and in the UK/World on January 20th. Preorder your copy of From All Purity via Relapse here.

Recorded at Electrical Audio and Soma Studios in Chicago with engineer/co-producer Sanford Parker (Minsk, Nachtmystium, Yob, Samothrace), the six-track From All Purity is a taunting exercise in auditory hate and despair; a physically and psychologically jarring collision of tar-black doom, sprawling waves of noise and scathing outbursts of pain. The Sleeping Shaman website commented of the record:

This is a very, very long way from most people’s definitions of purity, yet somehow it gets frighteningly close to pure, perfect torment in itself.

Forged in 2003, Indian’s debut EP, God Slave, was a self-released mission statement, welcoming the band into the world like young, kicking, screaming giants. Their first three full-lengths – The Unquiet Sky, Slights And Abuse, and The Sycophant, respectively – were all issued through Portland, Oregon-based metal imprint Seventh Rule Recordings. Unapologetically harsh and chest-cavingly heavy, each of these releases found the band gaining momentum and attracting followers, as well as performing shows with scene heavyweights such as Wolves in the Throne Room, Locrian, and Agalloch. By 2010, Indian had joined the Relapse family and spawned Guiltless.

Released in 2011 to outstanding reviews, the Chicagoist described the album as, “a musical journey into the mouth of teeth-rattling metal madness,” while Metal Hammer simply called it, “pretty much an essential album.” Fans were also impressed, gathering to soak up the band’s feverish rays of doom on tour across the country. Indian performed shows with High on Fire, Batillus, and Yob, translating their recorded sounds into a murky, devilish live spectacle.
