Australian funeral doom deities Mournful Congregation will embark on their first American tour today in Seattle, with support from Aldebaran and Anhedonist on all dates! The tour will wind down the West Coast over the next two weeks, making stops in Oregon, California, Arizona and Texas, including a headlining performance at the upcoming "Rites Of Darkness III" festival alongside Zemial, Stargazer, Cruciamentum, Pallbearer, Pagan Altar, Weapon and many more.
In addition to the major festival appearance for Mournful Congregation the band are also presently riding high on playlists from the incredible response from both fans and media worldwide on their recently released fourth full-length, 'The Book Of Kings'. Serving not only as a pinnacle release for Mournful Congregation dating back through their nearly 20 year history, the album can be considered a landmark release in the extreme doom subgenre as a whole. Consuming nearly 80 minutes of material, 'The Book Of Kings' takes the listener on a turbulent journey through both imperial nobility and crestfallen, tarnished hope.
