Pallbearer is an American colossus, rooted in doom metal but shaping their own musical paradigm unfettered by the confines of genre. Initially formed in Little Rock, AR by Joseph D Rowland (bass) and Brett Campbell (vocals / guitars) and later Joined by Devin Holt (guitar), the line up was solidified by the addition of Mark Lierly (drums) after the recording of their debut LP. That album, 2012’s Sorrow and Extinction, captured the primal heaviness of the band’s live show but expanded beyond a reliance on pure volume. It wavers beautifully between subdued introspection and towering aural force.
2014’s Foundations Of Burden built on the groundwork of their debut, evoking a complex melodic consciousness, each song imbued with a weight of devastating melancholy. Produced and mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Agalloch, Red House Painters), the album saw Pallbearer forging it’s own brilliantly desolate path, seeking balance at the very threshold of an unforgiving void.
Pallbearer are currently working on their third full-length LP, and will be on tour in August and September alongside Baroness - see all tour dates below and look for more news from Pallbearer coming soon.
