THE BEAST IS UNLEASHED!

BEASTWARS CELEBRATE RELEASE OF DEBUT ALBUM WITH NATIONWIDE TOUR THROUGHOUT MAY

After laying proud claim to being the heaviest band on the lineup at this year’s Camp A Low Hum, and sharing the bill with Melvins and High on Fire on their recent New Zealand visit, Beastwars are releasing the demon from it's cage in the form of their untitled debut album and a potent five stop nationwide tour.

Singer Matt Hyde says things are all falling into place. “We consulted Ken Ring, 'the Moon Man', about the safest day in May to unleash such a heavy album on the country and apparently the 9th of May is our safest bet with the moon in a waxing cresent.

Having solidified their reputation as an un-relentless force of nature in hometown Wellington, Beastwars have drawn on the expertise of producer Dale Cotton (HDU, Dimmer, Die!Die!Die!) with the mastering talents of John Golden (Melvins, Sonic Youth, Faith No More, High on Fire) to deliver an album born of fire and brimstone - to be performed on this tour track for track in it's entirety.

The album will be released on CD, digitally and on gatefold vinyl by Destroy Records through Universal and will available from all good retailers on May 9th. Get your free download of leading track Damn the Sky here: http://beastwars.bandcamp.com/ and catch Beastwars live at the following venues:
