Amenra is currently recording their new studio album, Mass VI, once again with Billy Anderson (Eyehategod, Neurosis, Om, Swans) in the snowy Belgian Ardennes. The album will see release later this year via Neurot Recordings, with more details to be confirmed.
Meanwhile, following the release of Alive – Amenra’s live acoustic album recorded at Ancienne Belgique, in Brussels, Belgium) – the band will, for the first time, dedicate a full tour to their acoustic sounds by delivering these breathtakingly solemn sonic invocations across Europe, commencing February 16th. Entirely stripped back from their electric mass, these shows offer Amenra at their most vulnerable yet an overwhelming sense of beauty, dark tranquility and mindful rest blooms in their acoustic congregations, as those who have already witnessed the band shall attest to. Stay tuned for more tour dates and Mass VI news very soon.
