The Dead XIII absolutely blew us (and a sizeable crowd) away on our Sunday stage at Wildfire this year. Funny, talented, heavy as a huge skip full of decaying zombie matter and a great bunch of guys to boot. As such, we’re really happy to hear news of a new LP from the 4 1/2 members (!) of the Manchester deathsters.
All killer, no filler UK metallers The Dead XIII have just announced that 2018 will see a brand new studio album release. Entitled Dark Days, the album continues the vicious onslaught found on the band’s debut album Catacombs (2015) and raises the bar in every way imaginable.
The Dead XIII interspersed life on the road with writing and recording the album throughout 2017, bringing a greater sense of maturity and experience to the song-writing. Thematically, Dark Days shifts the focus to more psychological horrors, where the real enemy is not seen, not just lurking in the shadows, but in the shadows of your mind. February 2018 will see Dark Days for everyone, are you ready?
The band are also running an Indiegogo campaign to allow fans new and old to be part of the album’s release. With various cool perks on offer, this will be the only platform to include pre-orders of Dark Days in CD format.
