California heavy metal trio CASTLE have announced a slew of U.S. tour dates in support of their newest album, Deal Thy Fate, released Oct 20 via Ripple Music. The upcoming U.S. dates, which feature stops at Black Smoke Conjuring SXSW showcase in Austin, TX and the NYDM Spring Bash in Milwaukee, WI will kick off with a one week run to Texas in March followed by a three-week trek to the East Coast in April/May.

In addition, CASTLE have also been confirmed for the inaugural Monolith On The Mesa to take place in Taos, NM on May 17-18 alongside OM, Windhand and others, as well as this year’s edition of Northwest Terror Fest in Seattle, WA on May 30 - June 2. Expect several more dates to be announced around the festivals.

Deal Thy Fate was recorded by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis) at Hallowed Halls in Portland, Oregon last spring and is currently available here [insert link: https://heavycastle.bandcamp.com/ ]. The band’s fifth album follows 2016’s critically-lauded Welcome To The Graveyard and builds on the stripped-down sound of its predecessor, pushing the envelope of classic metal with epic songs that hearken back to fuzzier times while keeping the pedal down on their own hard-edged, modern sound.
