Wolves In The Throne Room - New Album Details, North American Tour Announced

With Wolves In The Throne Room's fourth full-length album, Celestial Lineage, now completed and nearing its September 13, 2011 release date via Southern Lord Records, the band unveil the album's full track listing and album artwork.

The cover art for Celestial Lineage was created by photographic artist Alison Scarpulla, and the package designed by Aaron Turner (Isis, Twilight, Hydra Head Records). Says the band, "The beautiful, organic layout puts the album conceptually right in line with the band's previous Two Hunters and Black Cascade releases, and fittingly completes this triad of releases from the band. View the magnificent album art below."

Celestial Lineage tracklist:

1. Thuja Magus Imperium
2. Permanent Changes in Consciousness
3. Subterranean Initiation
4. Rainbow Illness
5. Woodland Cathedral
6. Astral Blood
7. Prayer of Transformation

In celebration of the new album, Wolves In The Throne Room will take to the road throughout North America in several waves to kick off the touring cycle in support of Celestial Lineage. With very D.I.Y. ethics fueling the tour dates, the horde will perform in many wooded locations and smaller, off-beat venues along the way. Some of these specific locations for the shows won't be announced until just days before some of the shows, where fans are urged to reference WITTR's official website for exact show locations and/or directions. More dates are being added and additional tours will follow, but at press time the confirmed routing is posted below.

Awesome album art, but who the fuck goes to Saginaw to tour Michigan? Oh well, they're pretty boring live from what I remember.

Interesting that there are 7 tracks. Will they be shorter? Or, are some of them just intros? Or, is the album 80 minutes long?
That alone has me wanting to hear this record, because I'm hoping they'll do something a little different
(Because they REALLY need to do something different...)
