Listen: Pallbearer’s bone-crushing new song “The Ghost I Used To Be”

on June 24, 2014, 4:00pm

On August 19th, Arkansas doom metal outfit Pallbearer return with their new album, Foundations of Burden. The follow-up to 2012’s Sorrow & Extinction spans six tracks and was recorded in Portland alongside producer/engineer Billy Anderson (Swans, Melvins).

“The Ghost I Used To Be” marks our first look at the LP, and it’s one monster of a track. Over the course of 10 densely-packed minutes, including a forceful chorus and whip-lashing breakdown, Pallbearer exude every sentiment from grisly ferocity to a startling sense of depth and poignancy.

Listen to it now over at NPR.com.

Below, check out the album’s official artwork and tracklist, followed by Pallbearer’s upcoming tour itinerary, which includes an appearance at Fun Fun Fun Fest and dates with Deafheaven.
