Dark Buddha Rising Announce New Release for 2018; Tour Underway Now

dark buddha rising Maija Lahtinen

Ultra-bleak Finnish psychedelic doom extremists Dark Buddha Rising are currently on the road with Sum of R in Europe supporting their righteously devastating 2015 offering, Inversum (review here), which came out backed by the considerable endorsement of Neurot Recordings. That tour started last night. In the meantime, the likely-to-swallow-you-whole collective have announced intentions toward issuing a new release in 2018.

As word comes through the PR wire, it doesn’t mention a new full-length album specifically, though it doesn’t seem out of the question either. It could well be that Dark Buddha Rising have an EP or a single in the works they want to get out before moving onto the inevitable 2LP that will eventually follow, but the bottom line is their stuff is always worth watching out for, since it’s like what solar flares would be if solar flares were made of gurgling antimatter that was too black to be seen by the naked eye. You know what I mean.

DARK BUDDHA RISING: European Tour Dates Commence This Week; New Material To See Release Via Neurot In Early 2018

DARK BUDDHA RISING will perform their immersive sonic rituals on select dates across Europe this week including an appearance at Le Guess Who? festival. See all confirmed dates below.

Watch the trailer by Chariot Of Black Moth, and sample some new DARK BUDDHA RISING sounds at THIS LOCATION.

For ten years, the Finnish band has convened to roil in the sounds of the underground, to meet dark spirits, to breathe in time with rhythmic pulses sent from the skies, the stars, and the very dirt around them. DARK BUDDHA RISING emits the blackest of psychedelia. Deep down, their sounds are forged in the blue fires of the ancients, exhalations of gods, goddesses, and demons alike.

Join them on the road very soon, and stay tuned for news of their next release which shall arrive on Neurot Recordings in early 2018…
