CROWBAR has also announced a new batch of tour dates with label-mates UNEARTH and BLACK CROWN INITIATE for December. Dates will kick off in Pensacola, FL at the Vinyl Music Hall and trek through the eastern half of the U.S. before finishing up in Longview, TX. View all dates here.
Symmetry in Black was released back in May and sold over 4,000 copies in its first week of release, the highest of any LP’s in the band’s 25 year career, beating out its predecessor Sever the Wicked Hand released in 2011. Symmetry in Black has received quite the critical reception to boot. Metalsucks states, “It’s no surprise that it’s excellent, but what is a surprise is just how excellent it is.” With Windstein’s focus entirely on Crowbar for the first time since the band’s inception, the anticipation was higher than ever leading up to its release leading internet giants LOUDWIRE to declare, “Windstein’s singular focus pays off.”
Lastly, tastemakers INVISIBLE ORANGES go as far to say that the band “deliver their trademark style of passionate and despondent hardcore-influenced sludge metal with ruthlessness and grace, crafting a masterful album.” The crushing signature sound of Crowbar is at its peak on Symmetry in Black, the band’s most diverse yet cohesive release.
