Experimental metal five piece, LOATHE, have today issued two brand new singles – ‘Gored’ and ‘New Faces In The Dark’ – in light of their looming UK/EU winter tour with STRAY FROM THE PATH. This is the first new music they’ve released in over 18 months.
The caustic ‘Gored’ comes paired with an unsettling video, which can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/Aw1AmN-EloA

‘Gored’ and ‘New Faces In The Dark’ sees some of LOATHE’s most esoteric and experimental moments yet; winding from brutally unrelenting heaviness, to weighty post-metal and ethereal post-rock. Fans who have caught LOATHE performing recently have been treated to live previews of the tracks, as well as their punishing and ever-evolving live show.
LOATHE are currently working on their next studio album, due in 2020. Stay tuned for news in due course.
Guitarist Erik states: “It feels good to be back, thank you all for being so patient whilst energy was flowing. Please enjoy both ‘Gored’ and ‘New Faces In The Dark’.“
