In support of their newly released magnum opus Heartless, genre-defying giants Pallbearer will canvas North America in May and June on a headline tour featuring support from GatecreeperPinkish BlackVenomous Maximum, and Inter Arma on select dates.  This run will follow Pallbearer’s current U.S. jaunt (shows in Cleveland, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis and Chicago still on the docket) and their forthcoming European tour in April.  Pallbearer’s full tour routing can be found below.
Released last Friday on Profound Lore in North America (and Nuclear Blast in Europe), Heartless is a 7-song album grander in scope than anything Pallbearer have released prior, showcasing a natural progression that melds higher technicality and more ambitious structures. Heartless was recorded straight-to-tape with Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Melvins, Soundgarden) manning the board, making for the band’s most pummeling, ambitious, and virtuosic work to date. 
Pulling from a wide swath of musical inspirations ranging from ‘90s alt-rock to classic prog, Pallbearer’s sonic architecture has grown more sophisticated than ever without abandoning its primeval roots and unshakeable hooks. The record bears no shortage of surprises—a three-part harmony will be followed up by proto-metal sprints, anthemic choruses are bristled by gnarled guitars and torrid backbeats. 
“Instead of staring into to the void—both above and within—Heartless concentrates its power on a grim reality,” the band explains. “Our lives, our homes and our world are all plumbing the depths of utter darkness, as we seek to find any shred of hope we can."
