LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR To Release New EP In August

The brutalizing LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR trio rears its gnarled head once again in 2018; the band has just recorded a new EP and announced live plans for late summer.

Following an extensive hiatus sharpening their axes, the Gods have called LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR back to battle. The classic "road dog" lineup of Steven Rathbone (guitar/vocals), Donald James Barraca (bass) and Chris Wozniak (drums) gathered to record a new EP on Memorial Day weekend.

The as-yet-unnamed EP will be released in conjunction LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR's performance at Scorched Tundra Fest 2018 in Chicago on Friday, August 31. The Scorched Tundra Fest performance will be an exclusive date for 2018 and will also mark the band's first show in five years.

Formed in Chicago in 2003, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR has released four full-length LPs, and two EPs through Southern Lord as well as their own label, The Grind-House Recordings, all interconnected concept recordings based on the bloodier tales of Greek mythology. The band has toured extensively across North America and Europe, crushing all in their path with their own brand of heavy fucking metal that has been likened to being beat to death with a spiked club.
