BASTARD SAPLING Posts New Song “Forbidden Sorrow”

Monday, 30th June 2014

BASTARD SAPLING’s new song, “Forbidden Sorrow,” is now streaming below. In addition, pre-orders for the band’s upcoming career-defining double album, Instinct Is Forever, are now available from longtime conspirators Forcefield Records and new allies Gilead Media. The album is slated for an August 26th release.

Two of Richmond, VA’s finest offerings to the gods of extreme metal, Inter Arma and BASTARD SAPLING, will be hitting the road together this July with their sights set on Oshkosh, WI’s semi-annual Gilead Fest.

This isn’t the first time the two bands have toured together – given that they share so many members, it’s kind of a no-brainer. This particular run will be special, though, as it sees both bands at the absolute top of their game. Inter Arma is riding a strong wave of success from their Relapse debut Sky Burial and a slew of successful live actions, while black metal vanguard BASTARD SAPLING is gearing up to release Instinct is Forever, a career-defining double album via longtime conspirators Forcefield Records and new allies Gilead Media.

They’ll be looping down through the South and up towards the Midwest on their path to Gilead Fest, where they’ll share the stage with a dizzying array of underground talent like Thou, The Body, Ash Borer, Wolvserpent, Barghest, Uzala, Seidr, Alraune, Loss, Mutilation Rites, and more.
