Here’s the official press release! 🙂

It’s been a hell of a ride for UK Metal crew LATITUDES this last 2 years – having powered their way through the UK underground with crushing and monumental live performances, which have included shows and tours with the likes of Baroness, This Will Destroy You, Storm of Light, Devil Sold His Soul, Bossk, *Shels, The Mirimar Disaster and anappearance at Damnation festival with Carcass, Napalm Death and others – it’s difficult to consider the quintet from Hertfordshire have come so far off the back of an EP!

And while the world has been dreaming of Hope and the promise of Change, LATITUDES have continued their brutal dredge into deeper and darker musical terrain. Now, on the verge of unearthing their long awaited debut full-length “Agonist”, LATITUDES hopes to present an important contribution to the great halls of British Metal.

The album – which features the addition of keyboardist Rich Harper and vocal contributions by good friend and ex-Eden Maine vocalist, Adam Symonds – is a monumental piece of work. Symonds’ delicate yet piercing soft vocals hauntingly intertwine with brutal slabs of heavy and emotive doom-drenched guitars. The complete picture is mesmerizing in its originality and breathtaking in its power and brings to mind masters such as Neurosis, Enslaved and Mastodon.

Produced by Chris Fielding (Napalm Death, Electric Wizard) at Foel Studios in Wales, “Agonist” will crush you like a steel wrecking ball in a velvet glove – The album is set for an October 5 release through Shelsmusic and features 7 tracks clocking-in at over 40 minutes. Customers should be on the lookout for a limited edition vinyl version of the release available exclusively at shows or at shelsmusic.com.
