||Hour Of Penance will embark on a European tour this fall alongside Australian tech-death act Psycroptic and UK death metal outfit Dyscarnate. Prior to the tour, which kicks off in Belgium on September 20th, the band will be seen appearing at several of the summer's international festivals. All upcoming dates are listed below. The death metallers have also announced that they have begun working on their next release, expected out in early 2014.
Guitarist Giulio Moschini commented: "We're extremely happy to tour again with our friends in Psycroptic and Dyscarnate and most of all to play again in Europe after the successful tour we did with Cannibal Corpse, DevilDriver and The Black Dahlia Murder in February. For the first time, Hour Of Penance will also play in Ireland! Be there!"
Moschini continued: "Since the release of (2012's) Sedition, the band has played over 150 shows throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia. We have had great times on the road and would like to thank all the fans who came to our shows and bought Sedition as well as all the people we worked with during this year. This was without a doubt a big source of inspiration for us, and while at home or between shows, we started collecting ideas for our next record. Even if what we have right now are only demos of the new songs, we can already say that if you loved Sedition and our past albums, you'll go crazy with this new record. We worked our asses off and meticulously worked on improving our music once again, so we're very glad to announce that a new album will be recorded after this tour!"
Guitarist Paolo Pieri added: "We're currently working on the lyrics and vocals for the new songs. This album will be more varied and brutal than everything we've done so far. The new material sounds totally fresh and will be a bone-crushing feast for old and new fans of Hour Of Penance."
