Welcome to the Stream of Castle’s ‘Welcome to the Graveyard’

If there’s one thing you should know about Castle, it’s that they are perhaps the hardest working occult/doom rock band in the world. Have a look at the two month’s worth of tour dates below. Impressive, right? Well, keep in mind that they’ve already been on the road a fucking month leading up those dates.

Of course, when they’re not being unmatched road dogs, they’re recording albums. And today, we’ve got the full stream of their fourth album in six years, Welcome to the Graveyard. Guitarist Mat Davis gives us the scoop, presumably from some gas station with a decent wi-fi connection. 

“We're extremely proud to finally stream Welcome to the Graveyard. We set out on a left hand path from the beginning with this beast of an album, right up until the final nails were put in its coffin. We looked to make this album work as a whole, with a stripped down rock element that hearkened back to our debut In Witch Order and infusing that with bursts of orchestrated melody.

“It's our favorite record to date because it combines all the different elements of Castle and lets them shine equally; epic heavy metal, doom, ’70s rock and [bassist/vocalist] Liz [Blackwell]’s vocals are more soulfully evil than ever before which adds to the haunted ride.”

Castle’s Welcome To the Graveyard is out Friday, July 15 on Van, but you pre-order it right here.
