"On August 19th, two years on from the release of their seminal debut LP Sorrow and Extinction, Pallbearer will unleash Foundations of Burden – an auditory exploration. Each song carries a weight of melancholic devastation that sees Pallbearer forging it's own desolate path through the realm of heavy metal, crafting music that seeks to balance itself at the very threshold of an unforgiving void.
Pallbearer's debut full-length Sorrow and Extinction was released in early 2012. At just under fifty minutes, the album's five tracks capitalized on the primal clout of the band's demo, but here the songs were freed from reliance on volume as the music wavered between subdued introspection and aural force.
Hailed by Rolling Stone as the #1 metal album of 2012, the album also received the coveted "Best New Music" stamp of approval from Pitchfork as well as being cited as one of the year's best albums by outlets such as Spin and NPR."
