WITHERED release lyric video for “To Glimpse Godliness”

WINTERSUN - The Forest Seasons

Atlanta’s WITHERED have released a lyric video for the track “To Glimpse Godliness”, and streaming now at Metal Injection. The lyric video appears in advance of the band’s previously announced Metal Injection sponsored winter tour across the USA and Eastern Canada with IMMORTAL BIRD. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

Regarding the track, the band comments: “The lyrics are a continuation from Distort, Engulf (Grief Relic). These songs pair up to illustrate becoming overwhelmed by the frustration with the mortal limitations of human existence. It ponders your willingness to cast off this physical existence and achieve an aethereal sense of timelessness & limitlessness. To perceive the universe as a blank nothingness from a lone, single consciousness is to glimpse godliness.”

WITHERED will also join the MORBID ANGEL tour, alongside SUFFOCATION, and REVOCATION. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

Regarding the tour, WITHERED comments: “We’re proud to announce our participation in this incredible tour. We couldn’t be more honored to share this with our friends, Revocation, extreme metal legends, Suffocation, and the progenitors of death metal, Morbid Angel with an incredible new lineup!”

WITHERED are touring in support of their new album, ‘Grief Relic’. The album, hailed as “a smarter and more sophisticated version of Withered, staking out territory in a more expansive landscape.” (Stereogum) is streaming now at the official WITHERED bandcamp page. The highly anticipated full-length is available across multiple CD and LP formats here.

Formed in 2003, WITHERED has created waves in the North American underground through the release of 3 critically acclaimed full lengths. The band’s music, characterized by highly introspective, dark and tumultuous lyrics traverses many sub-genres of extreme metal and show a band evolving from one album to the next.

For the release of ‘Grief Relic’, the band have enlisted the talents of acclaimed bass player Colin Marston (GORGUTS, DYSRHYTMIA, KRALLICE, and more), and Ethan McCarthy on vocals and guitar (PRIMITIVE MAN).
