HOUR OF PENANCE Working On New Material

Italian death metallers HOUR OF PENANCE will embark on a European tour this fall alongside Australian tech-death act PSYCROPTIC and U.K. death outfit DYSCARNATE. Prior to the trek — which kicks off in Belgium on September 20 — HOUR OF PENANCE will appear at several of the summer's heaviest international festivals.

Comments HOUR OF PENANCE guitarist Giulio Moschini: "We're extremely happy to tour again with our friends in PSYCROPTIC and DYSCARNATE and most of all to play again in Europe after the successful tour we did with CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEVILDRIVER and THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER in February. For the first time, HOUR OF PENANCE will also play in Ireland! Be there!"

HOUR OF PENANCE is also excited to reveal that it has begun work on material for its next album, expected out in early 2014.

Adds Moschini: "Since the release of [2012's] 'Sedition', the band has played over 150 shows throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia. We have had great times on the road and would like to thank all the fans who came to our shows and bought 'Sedition', as well as all the people we worked with during this year. This was, without a doubt, a big source of inspiration for us, and while at home or between shows, we started collecting ideas for our next record. Even if what we have right now are only demos of the new songs, we can already say that if you loved 'Sedition' and our past albums, you'll go crazy with this new record. We worked our asses off and meticulously worked on improving our music once again, so we're very glad to announce that a new album will be recorded after this tour!"

Says guitarist Paolo Pieri: "We're currently working on the lyrics and vocals for the new songs. This album will be more varied and brutal than everything we've done so far. The new material sounds totally fresh and will be a bone-crushing feast for old and new fans of HOUR OF PENANCE."
