Illinois-based extreme metallers NACHTMYSTIUM will headline one of the most cerebrally brutal underground tour of the year in September/October. Set to kick off in early September, the trek will feature NACHTMYSTIUM alongside ZOROASTER, THE ATLAS MOTH and DARK CASTLE. Presented by Stereogum and Haunting The Chapel, the nearly month-long tour will weave its twisted path through sections of the Eastern and Midwest U.S. and into Canada for several dates, before coming to a halt in NACHTMYSTIUM's Chicago stomping grounds, surely leaving a trail of smoldering cerebrums in its wake.

NACHTMYSTIUM's new album, "Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II", was released on June 8 via Century Media Records.
NACHTMYSTIUM filmed a video for "Every Last Drop" — which is being described in a press release as "a somber but mammoth eight-minute psychedelic nightmare that closes out the extremely unique album" — last week in New York City, with direction by Seldon Hunt and Jimmy Hubbard.
"Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II" was recorded at Volume Studios (RWAKE, MINSK, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR, PELICAN) in Chicago with producer Sanford Parker (MINSK). The band also enlisted the talents of Wrest (LEVIATHAN, LURKER OF CHALICE, TWILIGHT) to lay down all drum tracks, as well as Will Lindsay (WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, MIDDIAN) to handle the bass duties on the CD.
There is also a limited-edition, double gatefold vinyl featuring the bonus track "Macrocosmic" and an iTunes-exclusive bonus track, "Every Last Drop", remixed by James Plotkin (KHANATE, PHANTOMSMASHER). Artwork was created by Jimmy Hubbard and Seldon Hunt and the album features guest vocals by Bruce Lamont (YAKUZA) and guitar solos by Russ Strahan (PENTAGRAM) and Matt Johnson (PHARAOH).
