Polish black metal unit Batushka has signed with Napalm Records and will have a new record out sometime in 2023, it seems. In the meantime, Batushka will hit the road with Hate next February and March for a fairly extensive European tour.
Originating with acts like Abigor and Summoning, Napalm Records has been deeply rooted in the black metal genre since its very beginnings. Three decades later, this spirit remains strong and undoubtedly matches perfectly with the vision of the Polish unit. After the band’s critically acclaimed debut album, “Litourgiya” (2015), followed by sophomore “Hospodi” (2019), Batushka are more than ready to bring their bone-shaking essence of arcane black metal to the next level.
“PILGRIMS! We’re happy to announce that we’ve signed up with Napalm Records for the release of our upcoming new album. We have a mutual understanding regarding the telling of this new story and spreading the gospel of Batushka around the globe. Be on the lookout for our new album, and get ready to experience Batushka in all the corners of the world!
After traveling through North America and Mexico for our first long pilgrimage over there, we dare to say that this tour reaches far beyond our wildest expectations! We were surprised and humbled by the reception! We already know that we will return to stages around the globe as soon as possible – not only with a new show, but also with new songs and a new story. Apart from that, with blessing – Batushka“
