Pallbearer Release ‘Dropout’ Mini-Documentary; Single Out NowNorth American tour with Obituary & Skeletonwitch commences May 2nd
Ruminant progressive doom quartet Pallbearer recently premiered a new track entitled 'Dropout' as the 53rd installment of the Adult Swim Singles Program. The song, which is available digitally today, represents a subtle expansion of the singular doom-prog metal sound the quartet is known for.
To coincide with this release, the band have also made an accompanying mini documentary which gives a behind the scenes look at the recording of 'Dropout' - recorded at Fellowship Hall Sound in Little Rock, Arkansas. Check it out on YouTube here.
Stream 'Dropout' now on Spotify or download from Apple Music.
Pallbearer comments on the single: "We have almost always written music intended to exist as part of an album, with common musical and lyrical threads that tie many elements together into one release. Being freed from those confines in recording this song allowed us to explore themes and immediacy that might not have been uncovered in our more typical "large format" composition process."
Pallbearer are undoubtedly road warriors, and they will continue to uphold that titled with their forthcoming North American tour dates. Along with a freshly announced batch of headlining gigs, the group is gearing up to support Obituary on an expansive U.S. tour in the coming month.

Initially formed in 2008, PALLBEARER grew from the fertile underground metal scene of Little Rock, Arkansas - releasing their debut full-length Sorrow And Extinction in early 2012. The record made an immediate and immense impact on die-hard doom fans and metal critics alike, also forming the four piece fans outside of the metal scene. Hailed by Rolling Stone as the '#1 Metal Album Of 2012,' the album also received the coveted 'Best New Music' stamp of approval from Pitchfork and landed the band on end of year lists at SPIN and NPR.
Their formidable sophomore record - 2014's Foundations Of Burden«featured on countless critic's end of year lists and cemented their reputation as an unstoppable and emotive force - driving doom beyond its imagined limits, carving themselves an entirely original path through the realm of heavy music. The record charted in the Billboard Top 100, achieving Pitchfork's 'Best New Music' accolade and Decibel's highly honoured 'Album Of The Year' award.
