The Gates Of Slumber Set Album Release

The Gates Of Slumber have set a May 10, 2011 release date for their fifth full-length album The Wretch. Here is the pitch:

"This record is frustration and disappointment put to music, said THE GATES OF SLUMBER frontman and founding member Karl Simon. "No heroics this time, no swords; no sorcery. No fantasy. That stuff is OK; it's fun...whatever, but we don't feel it these days. This one is all about others let you down almost as much as you let yourself down. It might not make sense to you, but then you probably only have the last two records as a digital download. That, or your world is summed up by someone else's soundbite."

Previous to the release of the new record, The Gates Of Slumber will head to Europe for a two week tour with Place of Skulls.

The band will wrap the European trek on April 16 with a performance as one of the featured acts at the 2011 Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland where it will share the stage with Candlemass, Swans and more.

The band will then kick off a U.S. tour alongside Orange Goblin on May 28 in New York City.

The Wretch was recorded during the cold British winter of 2010 at London's Orgone Studios and produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Angel Witch.
