Mortals: Sign To Relapse Records

| 5 April 2013 | Reply


Relapse Records is extremely excited to announce the signing of Brooklyn, NY blackened sludge trio Mortals!  Formed in 2010, Mortals (Elizabeth Cline, guitar & vocals; Lesley Wolf, bass & vocals; Caryn Havlik, drums) have quickly built a reputation for their  harrowing concoction of black metal, stoner-swamp-sludge and doom metal, being described by MSN’s Headbang blog as an “engrossing and devastating version of modern metal.” and by Meat Mead Metal as “massive and crushing.”

The band will be entering the studio this summer to record their Relapse Records full-length debut and follow up to their critically acclaimed, self-released EP Death Ritual.  Listen to the title track from the EP here.

The group commented on the signing: “It’s unbelievable that we now have the support and backing of a label like Relapse whose roster of incredible talent is one we’ve long followed. We’re so excited that this label is offering us the opportunity to share what we’re doing with the world.  Pass the whiskey!

Additionally, the band will be hitting the road for a string of east coast shows starting May 3rd in Philadelphia, PA including dates with Mutilation Rites, East of the Wall, Woe & Fuck The Facts.  A complete listing of dates is included below.
