Hello and welcome to the 25th Official Old Corpse Road Newsletter.
Supporting Shining this weekend!
On Saturday (7th December) we shall once again return to the Snooty Fox in Wakefield to support Sweden's Shining on their European tour with Crest of Darkness and Sterbhaus. Also playing are our local friends in Narcotic Death and Burial. The show will kick off in the afternoon so make sure you are there nice and early if you are coming to the gig.
We still have physical tickets for sale so if you make the last minute decision to go, please get in touch so we can sort you out.
Last month we announced the news that our next release will be a split 7" with The Infernal Sea on Three Swords Records. The as yet untitled split will feature a brand new Old Corpse Road song. We will reveal more details soon but we hope that the record will be out early next year and it will certainly be in limited edition. www.threeswordsrecords.com / www.facebook.com/theinfernalsea.
Our friend Jim has is creating a series of documentaries based entirely on the subjects of our songs. The series will be split into geographical areas with the first part already complete and online for your viewing pleasure. The first episode is based in the UK Lake District covering the songs The Old Corpse Road, The Oakmen of Naddle Forest and The Crier of Claiffe.
We'd like to thank Jim for his hard work and dedication to this project and we hope you will enjoy the videos and gain a little more insight into our countries folklore and past.
Our good friends in Northern Oak recently started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to record their 3rd album. They've now reached their target but you can still support the campaign and help them raise even more! See the following link:
Next year we have some exciting gigs coming up, including a support slot for Denmark's folk metal heroes Svartsot and many more to be confirmed. We are taking a bit of a break from the more intensive gigging to concentrate on recording, but rest assured more live dates will appear later in the year.
