Pallbearer were formed in 2008 and emerged from the underground metal scene of Little Rock, Arkansas. Their first two full-length albums ‘Sorrow And Extinction‘ (2012, Profound Lore Records) and ‘Foundations Of Burden‘ (2014, Profound Lore Records) made a great impact giving the band a very positive reputation. Getting signed to Nuclear Blast will be followed by their third release of ‘Heartless‘. Pallbearer commented on the signing: “We are very excited to be working with Nuclear Blast on this record, as so many of the bands that have helped to shape our own artistic pathways have before us.”
Additionally, Monte Conner from Nuclear Blast Entertainment stated: “Pallbearer continue to evolve and scale new creative and sonic heights with ‘Heartless’. I am very honoured to be working hand-in-hand with the band, Profound Lore and Oblique Artist Management, and look forward to Nuclear Blast playing a key role in exposing new fans to this incredible band.”
The new album will be released via Nuclear Blast in the UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, and via Profound Lore Records in North America.
