- —04 MAY 2014—
Dallas-based ritualistic improv jazz-rock trio return with their second double-LP through Tofu Carnage Records this summer.

DEAD TO A DYING WORLD "Litany" ANNOUNCEMENT
- —28 JAN 2014—
Dead To A Dying World hits the studio in May with Billy Anderson of the Melvins, Neurosis, and Sleep notoriety. "Litany" will feature collaborations and contributions from members of Pallbearer, Pinkish Black, Sabbath Assembly, and Ecocide.
Dead To A Dying World's “Litany” was developed with the themes of isolation, insanity, and reflection in a time of global devastation. Evoking the cyclical nature of life, death, and rebirth, this new chapter reveals the aftermath of the self-titled release. From the ashes we find three warring clans who personify each theme and embody their own unique struggles. Each clan has sought their own way of survival in an unforgiving world, some in search for higher meaning, others through methods of irrevocable cruelty. These concepts are explored individually and finally together, representing by synecdoche, our own struggles in modern society.
Stay tuned for more release updates!
