Dragged Into Sunlight was just confirmed to tour as direct support for Mayhem on the upcoming European tour.
Having gained notoriety for their vicious and ritualistic live performances, DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT make for the perfect tour mates for Mayhem – another band that has thrived on audio annihilation and relentless bleakness.
DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT commented:
“Mayhem have set a benchmark in extreme music for over 30 years. De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is widely regarded as a landmark recording which continues to maintain its relevance and impact in a very different context today. It is an honour to celebrate 10 years of Dragged Into Sunlight as part of the long overdue performance of Mayhem’s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas.“
DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT have entered the studio to commence recording for an untitled upcoming album, due out later this year. More details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
With band members known only by their initials, and a back catalogue featuring two destructive, nerve-shredding albums under their own name, and a ground breaking collaborative outing with prolific cave dwellers, Gnaw Their Tongues, DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT remain shrouded in a cloak of dank anonymity.
