Next week (Aug. 19), Arkansas doom metal quartet Pallbearer will release Foundations of Burden, the follow-up to their outstanding 2012 debut Sorrow and Extinction, via Profound Lore. We’ve already given a pretty thorough listen to “The Ghost I Used To Be,” which we slapped with our Endless Playlist endorsement. And if that song impressed you as much as it did us, then you’re going to want to hear the whole thing. And you’re in luck! Because this week — a full week before the album is released — Pitchfork Advance is streaming the full album.
Listen to the Pallbearer Foundations of Burden stream here.
Also, make sure to read our interview with Pallbearer about their new album and just how doom metal they really are.
