WATAIN taps WITHERED, BOOK OF BLACK EARTH for Black Metal Magic Tour this fall

Prosthetic Records labelmates WITHERED and BOOK OF BLACK EARTH are proud to announce their involvement in the upcoming Black Metal Magic Tour later this fall supporting Swedish black metal titans Watain. The tour will begin in Northeastern Canada in early October, head to the West Coast, then wrap up in early November in Pennsylvania.

WITHERED will be supporting the band's recently second album, 'Folie Circulaire,' which has yielded critical acclaim since its June release. Recorded with Kylesa's Phillip Cope and featuring artwork from Paul Romano (Mastodon, The Red Chord, Trivium), the album is the band's eagerly-awaited follow-up to 2005's 'Memento Mori.' WITHERED will be playing a free Los Angeles show sponsored by SCION and Vice magazine along with Today Is The Day in August as part of Scion's Metal Show series. The show is free but reservations are required and early attendance is recommended. Fans can RSVP online here (

Meanwhile, BOOK OF BLACK EARTH will be touring in support of the Oct. 14 release 'Horoskopus,' the band's second full-length and debut for new home Prosthetic Records. "'Horoskopus' is a concept album about the hidden astrological elements of the Christian church," vocalist / guitarist T.J. Cowgill adds. "From its origins as a state sponsored religion in the fourth century to the present day, it has been guided by astrological concepts conceived centuries before Jesus Christ was mythologized as the 'Sun' of God."
