Pallbearer’s latest studio album ‘Heartless’ is out now and available to order physically HERE and digitally HERE.

‘Heartless’ was recorded entirely to analogue tape at Fellowship Hall Sound, Little Rock, Arkansas between June and August 2016. The record was produced by Pallbearer, and mixed by acclaimed producer Joe Barresi (Tool, The Melvins, QOTSA, Fu Manchu). Engineering was handled by Jason Weinheimer and Zach Reeves, and mastered by Grammy winning mastering engineer Dave Collins (Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper and Soundgarden).

‘Heartless’ achieved widespread critical acclaim in 2017, landing countless impressive ‘end of year list’ scores such as the #1 ‘Best Metal Album’ slots at The Quietus and Heavy Music HQ. Several of the achievements are listed below:

#2 Pop Matters
#3 Decibel
#5 Loudwire
#6 Rolling Stone
#13 Metal Hammer
#14 Kerrang

Initially formed in 2008, Pallbearer grew from the fertile underground metal scene of Little Rock, Arkansas – releasing their debut full length ’Sorrow and Extinction‘ in early 2012. The record made an immediate and immense impact on die-hard doom fans and metal critics alike, also forming the four piece fans outside of the metal scene. Hailed by Rolling Stone as the #1 metal album of 2012, the album also received the coveted ’Best New Music‘ stamp of approval from Pitchfork and landed the band on end of year lists at SPIN and NPR.

Their formidable sophomore record, 2014‘s ’Foundations Of Burden‘ featured on countless critic‘s end of year lists and cemented their reputation as an unstoppable and emotive force – driving doom beyond its imagined limits, carving themselves an entirely original path through the realm of heavy music. The record charted in the Billboard Top 100, achieving Pitchfork‘s ’Best New Music‘ accolade and Decibel‘s highly honoured ’Album Of The Year‘ award.

Pallbearer are:
Brett Campbell | lead vocals, electric & acoustic guitars, synthesizers
Devin Holt | electric & acoustic guitars, vocals
Joseph D. Rowland | electric bass, vocals, synthesizers
Mark Lierly | percussion
