| San Francisco heavy metal doomsters CASTLE have signed a worldwide record deal with California independent record label Ripple Music. The Bay Area band’s fifth LP, Deal Thy Fate, will be released on October 19. Check out a teaser video for Deal Thy Fate atthis location.
Castle features vocalist/bassist Elizabeth Blackwell and guitarist/vocalist Mat Davis. The duo’s impending Deal Thy Fate follows 2016’s critically-lauded Welcome to the Graveyard, which was recorded by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis) and described byMetal Hammer UK as “epic, heroic, tastefully melodic”. Deal Thy Fate — Castle‘s Ripple debut — will land on vinyl, limited edition vinyl, CD and via all digital services. More details about the upcoming album, including new music, will be released soon.
“We’re ecstatic to forge forces with Ripple Music to bring you the release of our fifth record, ‘Deal Thy Fate’,” comments Blackwell. “We can’t wait to unleash this no compromise, fist banging companion to our fans, present and future. Get ready to Deal Thy Fate!!”
