Amenra in the studio recording Mass VI; European acoustic tour on horizon
AMENRA are currently recording their new studio album MASS VI, again with Billy Anderson (Eyehategod, Neurosis, Om, Swans and so many more) in the snowy Belgian Ardennes. The album will see release later this year via Neurot Recordings with more details to be confirmed.
Meanwhile, following the release of Alive – AMENRA’s live acoustic album recorded at Ancienne Belgique (Brussels, BE) – the band will, for the first time, dedicate a full tour to their acoustic sounds by wandering these breathtakingly solemn sonic invocations across Europe, commencing February 16th. Entirely stripped back from their electric mass, these shows offer AMENRA at their most vulnerable yet an overwhelming sense of beauty, dark tranquillity and mindful rest blooms in their acoustic congregations, as those who have already witnessed shall attest to. Dates as follows, with more TBC...
