Multinational punk / heavy metal collective TAU CROSS has the official audio for “Bread and Circuses” off the impending Pillar of Fire full-length album. Listen now via Cvlt Nation HERE.
Issues bassist/vocalist Rob “The Baron” Miller: “Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt…. A citizenry gorged on excess and mesmerized by the spectacle of entertainment has lost its will and its way, it has abdicated personal responsibility and handed over total control to the state. “
Additionally, TAU CROSS will tour throughout Europe 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.
