Denver black metal outfit, WAYFARER announce a new full length album titled, “A Romance With Violence”, due for release worldwide on October 16, 2020 via Profound Lore Records.
“A Romance With Violence” features seven harrowing and triumphant anthems of the high plains and paints a poignant exploration of heroes and killers, the setting sun of a romantic era, and the shadow it has cast on the world we live in today. With the release of “A Romance With Violence”, the band fully manifests a sound that is uniquely theirs, and is unlike anything before it.
Recorded in the midst of the pandemic by Pete deBoer (Blood Incantation, Dreadnought), “A Romance With Violence” was mixed by the inimitable Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts), and Mastered by V. Santura (Triptykon, Dark Fortress). The album features guest appearances from Kelly Schilling (Dreadnought Bleakheart), Anthony Limon (Falcon’s Eye), and Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts).
Following the albums release, WAYFARER will soon be seen bringing their shattered view of the American West to stages across the world.
