Church of Misery announce 2013 US Tour

Stoner Metal Japanese band Church of Misery have just announced a US tour starting in mid-October.  The tour will see them joined by doom metal band "The Gates of Slumber" for some dates including their November 1st date at Ultra Lounge in Chicago. The band, known for making almost all their albums about American Serial Killers, have just recently released their latest album "Thy Kingdom Scum" after reuniting with their former vocalist Hideki Fukasawa.  Check out the official press release from Metal Blade Records:

"Church of Misery Official, Japan's finest doom export, has announced tour dates for this fall in the United States! The band's latest album, "Thy Kingdom Scum," features the return of the band's original vocalist, Hideki Fukasawa... 

"Thy Kingdom Scum" was written and recorded by Tatsu Mikami, Junji Narita, Ikume Kawabe, and Hideki Fukasawa. The album has been praised as one of the best doom releases of 2013, with Decibel Magazine declaring it has "some of the wickedest doom grooves since Black Sabbath 40 years ago…it's resounding proof that no one right now-not even the reunited Sabbath with a newly wound-up Ozzy-can come close to the gargantuan swing of the mighty Church of Misery." Terrorizer Magazine adds that "Thy Kingdom Scum" is a "very welcome return of Hideki Fukasawa on vocals (and synth too)…reaching Anselmo-like drawling lows…"
