At A Loss is pleased to announce it will be working with St. Augustine, Florida's female / male duo Dark Castle, releasing their next full length album in 2009. Phillip Cope (Baroness / Kylesa / Withered) recently recorded the tracks for the upcoming release at the infamous Jam Room, capturing the band's unique brand of metallic , psyche-doom. More album and tour info will definitely be announced shortly...

How the hell does a vinyl release not happen until over 3 years later? We will just use the old "for reasons beyond our control" on this one. Some of that is actually true too! Anyway, after a huge wait Minsk's Out of a Center Which is Neither Dead nor Alive will be available on double LP format. The double LP goodness will be wrapped up in a gatefold cover (new design too), with rad inner sleeves all by the one and only Tony Wyioming. We will also be including a free digital download card with every double lp so you can listen to it on your digital device.
Still supporting this year's soul-dredging juggernaut Twilight Ritual, Arkansas' sludge-metal messiahs Deadbird are teaming up with their doomster brethren Zoroaster for a quick assault on the American South.
