Pallbearer will be celebrating a decade of ‘Sorrow & Extinction‘ over the course of 2022. Throughout the year, look out for more anniversary show news, limited edition merch, and a limited deluxe vinyl package via 20 Buck Spin.
Pallbearer, formed in Little Rock, Arkansas by Brett Campbell, Joseph D. Rowland, and Devin Holt, were, on the release of their debut LP, ‘Sorrow & Extinction‘, at the vanguard of the resurgence in doom metal.
At just under fifty minutes, the five tracks that make up ‘Sorrow & Extinction‘ are towering aural force. The seminal record instantly made waves among listeners and critics who found Pallbearer’s compositional paradox of vulnerability and might to be unparalleled.
Pitchfork heralded ‘Sorrow & Extinction‘ “a triumph,” while NPR claimed the songs on the album “challenge the doom gods themselves for a place on the throne.” The album was both Stereogum and Pitchfork’s #1 Metal Album of 2012 and was Spin’s #2 Metal Album of the Year in 2012.
A decade later, ‘Sorrow & Extinction‘ is no less an achievement.
The ‘Sorrow & Extinction‘ shows aren’t Pallbearer‘s only European dates this year. The band will be returning overseas for their first shows in support of their 2020 acclaimed album ‘Forgotten Days’ on an extensive co-headline tour this Autumn with Elder, plus special guests Irist.

Pallbearer‘s latest album, the critically acclaimed LP ‘Forgotten Days‘ was released in 2020. The band are currently working on new material.
Pallbearer formed in Little Rock, Arkansas USA in 2008. A heavy rock band from the South isn’t that unlikely, but one that is responsible for, in part, rekindling America’s (and the world’s) passion for heavy rock/doom metal is all but unbelievable. From ’Sorrow and Extinction‘ (2012) and ‘Foundations of Burden‘ (2014) to ‘Heartless‘ (2017) and ‘Forgotten Days‘ (2020), Pallbearer ignited in generations new and grizzled, not just a renewed interest in originators such as Black Sabbath and Candlemass but also infatuation over echelons of lesser-knowns.
