SAINT VITUS Completes Recording New Album, Announces European Tour

The godfathers of American doom SAINT VITUS have finished recording their new album. The follow-up to 2012's "Lillie: F-65" will be released in 2019 via Season Of Mist.

To promote the new disc, SAINT VITUS will embark on a European tour in April. Support on the trek will come from DOPELORD.

Formed in 1979, SAINT VITUS were largely influenced by BLACK SABBATH, whose song "Saint Vitus Dance" obviously inspired the moniker. Since their debut album, "Saint Vitus", came out in 1984, the Americans have released seven more full-lengths and two EPs that are summarily considered to be classics of their genre.

SAINT VITUS released a live album, "Live Vol. 2", in September 2016 via Season Of Mist. The set was recorded during the tour for "Lillie: F-65" on March 19, 2013 at the Kulturfabrik in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg.
