The return of Mournful Congregation is imminent. The band will release a new mini-album titled ‘Concrescence Of The Sophia’ on June 24th via 20 Buck Spin in North America. The European release will be handled by Osmose Productions.
The release consists of two tracks, Concrescence Of The Sophia (21:42) and Silence Of The Passed (8:57), totaling just over 30 minutes of completely new music from the Gods of Extreme Doom. The vinyl release for North America will be the band’s first domestically available vinyl pressing and will come on black vinyl and two additional color variants. The CD version will be a digipak. A t-shirt design based on the album artwork is also planned.
If all goes well the album will be in the hands of the band on both formats in time for their headlining appearances at Martyrdoom in New York City at the end of June.
Also for those keeping track, our good friend Tim Call (Aldebaran, The Howling Wind, Nightfell, Parasitic Records, etc etc) handles drum duties on this recording.
Killtown Bookings is proud to present: MOURNFUL CONGREGATION: “A Vicennium of Mourning Tour 2013″
For the past several months we have worked hard on booking this tour for this amazing band and now the tourdates are finally ready! The tour will start on April 18th with the first show at the infamous Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland and after that continue to spread death, doom and depression on a trail across Europe before heading back to Australia on May 9th. On the way they will also pay a visit to the upcoming DIY doom fest Heavy Days In Doomtown in Copenhagen, Denmark and be joined for the last leg of the tour by US doom sludge outfit, Shadow of the Torturer.
Mournful Congregation are honoured to finally return to Europe in 2013, spreading their plague of death, doom and depression as far and wide as possible.
Any promoters interested in booking Mournful Congregation between the dates of April 19 and May 9 should contact;
Unfortunately Mournful’s official drummer, Adrian Bickle, is unable to join the band for this sojourn. But they are pleased to announce that Tim Call (Aldebaran), who also joined the band on their last US tour in September 2012, will be filling in on drums.
Hence, the live line-up for Europe in 2013 will be;
Damon Good – Guitar/Vocals
Justin Hartwig – Guitar
Stuart Prickett – Guitar
Ben Newsome – Bass
Tim Call – Drums

In lieu of the recent cancellation of Mournful’s Australian tour, we have been lucky enough to be confirmed as one of the bands taking part in this years Stella Natura Festival in Soda Springs, California. Around this Festival, we will be doing eight or so extra West Coast
shows with Colorado’s Velnias. More details soon…..
We must humbly apologise to all of our East Coast fans once again. Due to time restrictions and certain logistics, we will not be able to make it over to the East Coast this time around. Sorry!
Due to unforeseen circumstances put upon all parties, we have been forced to reschedule the Procession / Mournful Congregation tour. All bands and promoters are working their hardest to make this happen, but it’s definitely going to be pushed back into 2013. We do apologise to the doom maniacs who already purchased tickets to see this tour! A full refund will be given from your point of sale.
2013 will see a new album released from PROCESSION so keep an ear out! After this the Australian tour will be re-booked, so stay tuned!
