Official press release:
As 2018 approaches, and Khemmis meticulously crafts the material for their follow-up to Hunted, the band has been confirmed to take place in the Seventh Annual Decibel Magazine Tour, set to run through North America from February 15th through March 10th. Issues the band:
“We’re honored to be part of the 2018 Decibel Tour alongside Wolves In The Throne Room, Myrkur, and the legendary Enslaved. We look forward to playing in a number of new cities, particularly throughout Canada, as well as returning to a number of areas we know and love. We might even include a new song from our upcoming album — the only way to know is to be there!”
Preceding the tour, Khemmis will be returning to the studio in January to record their third LP, once again with Dave Otero at Flatline Audio. The album will be scheduled for late summer 2018 on 20 Buck Spin in North America and Nuclear Blast in Europe. In conjunction with the release, Khemmis will embark on additional widespread touring, including their first European tour. Watch for additional details to be issued early in the year.
In other news, Orange Amplifiers welcomed Khemmis guitarists Ben Hutcherson and Phil Pendergast and bassist Dan Beiers as ambassadors, with all three now representing the company with massive new backline upgrades. Drummer Zach Coleman is also now sponsored by C&C Drums and Paiste. The C&C kit is made from their Gladstone shells, a 7-ply maple shell, which provide a deep and resonant tone.
