Published Aug 28, 2014A couple of weeks after Unearth announced their next LP, Watchers of Rule, the long-running metalcore crew have unleashed a little more info behind the set, as well as a package tour with Darkest Hour and more.
As previously reported, Watchers of Rule arrives October 28 via eOne Music in North America and a day earlier in Europe through Century Media. A press release now confirms that Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, DevilDriver) produced the album, while Lamb of God's Mark Morton popped off a bass solo at some point during the sessions. Lewis had also handled production duties on 2011's Darkness in the Light.
While it's been revealed that the set will feature new tunes "Burial Lines" and "The Swarm," a full tracklisting has yet to appear. Unearth did confirm, however, that they'll be taking new tunes on the road this fall as part of the "Hell or High Wattage Tour." The trip kicks off with Canadian dates in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto, and also features Darkest Hour, Carnifex, Origin, Black Crown Initiate, and I, the Breather.
