Boston, Massachusettes' MORNE will join Author & Punisher for a short run of North American live dates. The nine-date journey kicks off February 23, 2024 in Cambridge, Massachusetts before closing off on March 3 in Brooklyn, New York. Additional support will be provided by Glassing.

MORNE guitarist/vocalist Miłosz Gassan comments, “This is our first North East/Mid-West run in a very long time. We will also play cities we haven’t played before and I really hope people will come out and share those nights with us. Cheers to Author & Punisher for inviting us. See you on the road!”

MORNE released their Engraved With Pain full-length last November via Metal Blade Records. Engraved With Pain is a moment of grim triumph, as rooted in Celtic Frost as in Ministry, still somehow extrapolated from the gods Black Sabbath and characteristic of no one so much as themselves. Spacious, crushing, darkly thoughtful enough to be progressive but never so indulgent as to lose sight of its core message, the offering was recorded with legendary producer Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts.

The stylistic pyroclasm of MORNE's bleak, extreme but reachable metal did not happen overnight. Since their 2009 debut album, Untold Wait, the quartet has made simple categorizations like "doom" or even "metal" laughable, and their latest and fifth full-length, fittingly titled Engraved With Pain, refines their attack to a level towards which even 2018's To The Night Unknown could only hint.

Playing out across four chapters in forty-minutes, the album sees the veteran outfit crafting rhythmic tension and lung-squeezing atmospheres as Gassan emits layered guttural shouts that speak to inner and outer crises. Engraved With Pain makes its title believable and from its eponymous opner through "Memories Like Stone," "Wretched Empire," and "Fire and Dust," it carried humanity individually and collectively through the realities of decline.
