Red is the impending new EP from extreme metal supergroup SCOUR. With a pedigree covered in viscera, SCOUR is the brainchild of Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), Chase Fraser (Animosity, Decrepit Birth), and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index). Their latest manifestation serves as part two of a three-part EP series.
Red will see release on CD, digital, and vinyl formats on November 3rd. As a precursor to its release, today Revolver is offering up “Piles” for public feasting.
“This is one of our favorite SCOUR songs,” says Engemann, “‘Piles’ comes in hot with blistering melodies wrapped around some serious vocal brutality.”
SCOUR will play two rare live shows this December in Fort Worth and Austin. See info below.
12/15/2017 The Rail Club – Fort Worth, TX [tickets]
12/16/2017 Come And Take It Live – Austin, TX [tickets]
Forged in 2015, SCOUR’s punishing mix of black metal, grindcore, and thrash made its debut with the ferocious single “Dispatched.” The band’s debut EP, Grey, was released the following year via Anselmo’s own Housecore label. Just before a crushing performance at Hellfest Open Air, which featured a cover of the Pantera classic “Strength Beyond Strength,” the band recorded their Red EP at Nodferatu’s Lair with Steve Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.) at the helm. The record was once again mixed and mastered by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Cobalt, Khemmis) at Flatline Audio.
