Ascending Arkansas progressive doom quartet Pallbearer are heading to Europe next week for a run of dates and festival appearances. Ahead of their return, the band have just unleashed an official live video for the track “Thorns”, taken from their recent release, Heartless. The live video was shot during part of the band’s US tour back in February.

The band commented: “We’re excited to once again be heading over to Europe and the UK, and we might even be playing a handful songs from our catalogue that have never been performed outside of the US before!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
