Yeah, that’s right, you heard – Sacred Mother Tongue, are kicking off their 13-date April/May tour TONIGHT in Milton Keynes. Over the next few weeks they’ll be demonstrating just why we’re proud to be sponsoring the entire tour as it works its way up and down the length and breadth of England.
Watch the video to ‘The End’ by Sacred Mother Tongue:
After checking out that video, you can see why we think you need to get down and catch these guys love. And as if that wasn’t enough, this tour is going to see the quartet debut songs from the forthcoming, as-yet-untitled follow up to their cracking 2009 debut album, The Ruin Of Man. The band has been working away in the studio with Scott Atkins, recording what has the potential to be one of the best albums of 2011.
Sacred Mother Tongue’s vocalist, Darrin South, has said the following about the new album this tour:
“We are really looking forward to finally being able to share the tracks we’ve been slaving over in recent months; this album was written entirely by the current line up and we are incredibly proud of what we feel we’ve achieved. As musicians and individuals we’ve found some deeper roots to pull on, so technically, and personally, we’ve grown and taken it to the studio and we are pretty excited by what we’ve produced. Now, we’re taking it to the stage – let’s hope everyone else digs it too!”
Of course, if you’re unable to get to any of these 13 dates, Sacred Mother Tongue will be opening the Second Stage on the second day of this year’s Download Festival. If there’s a better way to blow away a festival first night hangover than ridiculous amounts of heavy frickin’ metal, we don’t want to know about it.
