Midwestern blackened outfit WOLVHAMMER has announced a new summer tour with their revamped lineup, as material for their next album is currently under construction.
Following the release of WOLVHAMMER‘s fourth LP, The Monuments Of Ash & Bone, last year, and heavy subsequent touring in support of the record, the album lineup shifted, and vocalist Adam Clemans, bassist Andrew Gerrity (ex-Doomsday), drummer Garry Naples (November’s Doom, ex-Abigail Williams), and guitarist John Porada (Negative Mantra, ex-Abigail Williams, Terminate) welcomed new guitarist Jarrett Pritchard (Eulogy, Exmortis, Pulchra Morte) to the fold.
As the new lineup continues to build new material for their next release, WOLVHAMMER has booked a summer tour with Vaulted. The trek begins in Hamtramck, Michigan on June 25th and runs through seventeen cities, ending in Chicago on July 13th.
See all confirmed WOLVHAMMER tour dates below and watch for further updates in the weeks ahead.

The Monuments Of Ash & Bone is far removed from the methodical riffing and trudging pace of WOLVHAMMER‘s previous records, eschewing any frills. Merging the black metal tendencies of Enslaved with the mid-tempo sludge of Celtic Frost, the album delivers nearly forty-two minutes of savagery through seven new songs that go straight for the throat; no experimental bullshit, just the sound of rotten flesh and slow decay. The album was recorded and mixed by Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Exhumed, 1349, Nocturnus AD) at his New Constellation Studios in Orlando, Florida, and mastered by Ken Sorceron (Abigail Williams, The Faceless) – both of whom provide additional guitar tracks to the album – and is completed with artwork by Brian Sheehan.
