WAYFARER Complete Work On New Album “World’s Blood”, Announce US Tour Dates

Colorado’s WAYFARER have completed work on their new album “World’s Blood” set for release on CD/LP/Digital on May 25 (new audio and pre-orders to come in the next few weeks).  “World’s Blood”, the band’s third LP and first for Profound Lore Records, is black metal of the American West and was recorded in the winter of early 2018 at The Thousand Caves in New York under the watchful production of Colin Marston.

A reflection of the Rocky Mountains and high plains of their native Colorado, the band tells a story that is uniquely American. Drawing influence as much from the dusty, dark Americana of the “Denver Sound” and the scores of epic westerns as they do the fury and melody of black metal; Wayfarer brings something original to the table with a sound that is at once aggressive and honest. The album paints a hallucinatory picture of the western frontier, and the haunting presence of the blood in the soils from a culture lost to time.

Track listing for “World’s Blood” goes as follows:

1. Animal Crown
2. On Horseback They Carried Thunder
3. The Crows Ahead Cry War
4. The Dreaming Plain
5. A Nation Of Immigrants

Wayfarer was first brought together in 2012, by a group of Colorado natives. The members of the band aimed to create something original – fierce, beautiful, and honest, in order to contribute back to the pantheon of the great and timeless music that shaped them as people. The founding lineup of Shane McCarthy, Tanner Rezabek, Isaac Faulk and James Hansen released their debut album “Children Of The Iron Age” in 2014, which was later picked up by Prosthetic Records. With the release of the album, the band began what would grow be substantial touring of the material with a strong and memorable live show. Subsequent years would bring touring alongside the likes of Dreadnought, Falls of Rauros, Anicon, Velnias, and Haunter.

The second LP “Old Souls” was released in 2016 via Prosthetic and continued the band’s progression to a sound not easily confined by genre tags. With a more refined and decidedly darker album in tow, the band continued to hit the road, performing across the United States, Canada and Mexico. Guitarist and long time collaborator of the band Joey Truscelli officially joined following the release of the record, replacing the departed Tanner Rezabek.
