  In a multinational takeover, multiple international branches of Vice Magazine’s music channel, Noisey, have cooperatively premiered “Plouton,” the gargantuan second movement on Ufomammut’s impending seventh LP, Ecate. In addition to the new track, the fifth instalment of short videos documenting the mammoth undertaking of the Ecate recording sessions has been posted, focusing on the album’s vocals being harnessed, and preorder packages for the mighty record have also been activated.
  As with the rest of Ecate, “Plouton” is varied from the majority of Ufomammut’s vast recorded catalogue, the album unloading a more dense and upbeat percussive and riff attack, taking the band’s cosmic, psychedelic tones to some of their most devastating capabilities in the band’s 15 year long mission. At just over three minutes in length, “Plouton” consumes only a fractional amount of time compared to most of their extensive doom/sludge anthems, but helps create a distressing amount of tension early in the album which uncoils and consumes everything in earshot over the subsequent tracks. Ecate shall be released via Neurot Recordings, and in conjunction with the band’s own Supernatural Cat Records on 30th March.
  Scope the fifth of seven mini-documentaries on Ecate’s recording process at this location and stand by for the final episodes to leak in the coming days. Also watch the first few episodes, with part 1part 2part 3 and part 4.
  Preorders for Ecate including limited edition vinyl, CD, shirt, and bundle deals are now available. In North America stop by theNeurot Recordings store and internationally click to Supernatural Cat’s store.
  Ufomammut’s massive international tour in support of Ecate begins directly after its release, with several Italian shows preceding their two-week European tour with the UK’s Conan, and including appearances at both of this year’s Desertfest events in London and Berlin. And May and June will see the band on their first-ever tour of North America. Initiated by their anticipated performance at this year’s Maryland Deathfest with lablemates Yob, Neurosis and countless others, Ufomammut’s month-long North America Spring 2015 will run from May 13th through June 13th, with direct support from Relapse Records’ Usnea.
