Castle Sign to Hammerheart Records; Evil Remains Due in September

Last month, when Castle announced the not-here-yet April 1 release of their live album, One Knight Stands: Live in NY (info here), through their own Black Wren Records imprint, it didn’t seem out of line to think they’d handle the follow-up studio release noted at the time as well. Today, the plot thickens as Hammerheart Records (Trouble, among many others across a range of heavy and/or metal subgenres) steps in to issue Evil Remains this Fall, which will arrive concurrent to three weeks of touring in Europe over the course of Sept. 9-30. That puts them earlier than many of the Fall heavy festivals, but that’s only fitting for a band who’ve always followed their own path.

There are a couple TBAs, and as always, if you can help out, you should. I haven’t heard Evil Remains yet, so can’t tell you much more about it other than it’s six months out from being released, minimum, so I probably shouldn’t have heard it yet either. Let’s assume there will be more details — including the release date — between now and then, and if you’re desperate for something new to dig into, well it just so happens there are two songs from the live record streaming now. See? Everything works out sometimes.

The PR wire sends its regards, hopes you’re well, and had this to say:

Heavy Metal/Doom trio Castle signs to Hammerheart Records for their new album “Evil Remains”!

Hammerheart Records are proud to announce they have signed Castle for a worldwide release of the new album in September 2024 to coincide with a 22 date European tour, their first since 2018.

Castle guitarist Mat Davis states “We’re thrilled to sign with Hammerheart Records and partner together for the release of Evil Remains. It’s our best album to date, the production is huge and really captures the power and nuance of Liz’s vocal performance. We can’t wait to get it out there and start playing these songs live.”

Heavy metal/doom trio Castle have completed recording their new album “Evil Remains” at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, BC with producer Jesse Gander (Anciients, Brutus, 3 Inches Of Blood).

“Evil Remains”, the band’s sixth full length follows 2018’s “Deal thy Fate” and 2016’s critically-lauded “Welcome to the Graveyard”.
