Canadian post-black metal outfit NUMENOREAN begin their previously announced Western US tour. The tour kicks off tonight in Vancouver, and follows throughout the Western US before concluding on July 11. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below. Support on all these dates comes from WORMWITCH.
NUMENOREAN are touring in support of their debut full-length album ‘Home’. The album, hailed as “A bone-crushing yet surprisingly graceful debut” (CoS) is streaming now at Consequence of Sound.
‘Home’ has been regarded as “fluidity, power, and grace, moving with furious speed to gorgeous melodic climaxes that somehow feel both unexpected as a car crash and inevitable as a sunrise.” by Stereogum, and is available across multiple formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.
The track list and cover art for ‘Home’ can be found below (please be advised that the art is NSFW due to violent themes, and therefore appears as clickable link here instead. An alternative, SFW slip-case cover art can be found below.)
NUMENOREAN was founded by Brandon and Byron Lemley in Canada’s most northern major city, Calgary. The brothers released a two song demo under the title ‘Demo 2014’, and created waves among the northern underground scene. Following a strong reception for the demo release, NUMENOREAN finalized a live lineup and has performed at Canada’s Sled Island Festival in 2015, where the band shared the stage with DRIVE LIKE JEHU, GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR, and SUMAC. The band recently returned for a performance at Sled Island, alongside DEAFHEAVEN.
