Multinational punk / heavy metal collective TAU CROSS has shared the official music video for the second single off the impending Pillar of Fire full-length album. Watch the Jakub Moth directed video for “Killing the King” via Brooklyn Vegan HERE and Invisible Oranges HERE.
Vocalist/Bassist Rob “The Miller” Baron commented: “It is a time for dismantling the apparatus of authority and control.We live within the landscape of TS Elliot’s Waste Land, within the age of the Hollow Men and the new Crisis of cultural disintegration in the West, it is a time for Killing the King.”
Additionally, TAU CROSS has announced headlining European tour dates for later this Summer. The tour commences July 29th in Finland and ends August 8th in Denmark. A full list of confirmed tour dates is listed below.
Pillar of Fire will be released worldwide July 21 on CD/2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical pre-orders and exclusive bundles are currently available via Relapse.com at this location and digital pre-orders are available via Bandcamp HERE.
Pillar of Fire further expands the group’s unique musical approach ranging from dark folk witchery to industrial punk metal brutalism; a moody melting pot of Killing Joke’s metallic post-punk and Motörhead’s anthemic, hard rock with flourishes of traditional instrumentation and an infusion of 16th century English mysticism. Pillar of Fire is a musical unearthing of TAU CROSS’s philosophical preoccupations: mythological motifs, ultra-terrestrial hypotheses, surreal, social political landscapes and the endless search for meaning in a controlled Universe.
