DESPISED ICON – release guitar/bass playthrough for ‘Dead Weight’ + announce “Purgatory” tab book!

Last month, Canadian deathcore pioneers DESPISED ICON unleashed their sixth full length album, »Purgatory,« via Nuclear Blast. Today the band has launched a guitar and bass playthrough for ‘Dead Weight’ featuring Eric JarrinBen Landreville and Sebastien Piché. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuYWSPPZzOI

Eric Jarrin comments, “We chose ‘Dead Weight’ because we feel it’s one of the most complete songs on the album, musically speaking. It showcases technical riffs, slam parts, tremolo picking, breakdowns, a guitar solo and even a bass solo! It has everything.”

Last week, the band announced the release of their very first tab book courtesy of their friends at Sheet Happens Publishing. The printed & digital books come with an instant download pack containing the print-ready guitar book PDF (eBook) and the complete Guitar Pro files.
