Now this is some news I could actually write home about, I’m that excited.
To mark ten years as a band, Greek mythology-loving Chicago trio Lair Of The Minotaur will be returning this spring with a wicked awesome new EP.
While the band’s members “have been skulking around in the back-alleys of the underground over recent months, the band has been far from dormant,” says a press release.
“To commemorate a full decade of demolishing eardrums on record and on stage this year, the band will hammer its fanbase with a brand new EP for this year’s Record Store Day. Entitled Godslayer, the new seven-inch release bears two new tracks.”
Those songs are the title track as well as “The Black Heart of the Stygian Drakonas” on the B-side.
Both tracks were mastered by Scott Hull.
A limited edition of 300 copies will be pressed as a seven-inch, in addition to the digital download through iTunes, Amazon MP3 and the like.
The EP will be released on their own The Grind-House Records with distribution from previous label home, Southern Lord, for Record Store Day which is April 20.
Lair of the Minotaur will also be storming stages in April, starting with a free hometown Record Store Day show at Reckless Records in Chicago’s Wicker Park.
