Doom metal titans Pallbearer have confirmed their new album, Mind Burns Alive. The album arrives on May 17 through Nuclear Blast Records. On Wednesday, the band revealed the record’s lead single, “Where The Light Fades” and its Dan Almasy-directed video. Stream the official clip below now.

Lyrically, the song eludes to what are the overall themes on the six-song album, as vocalist and guitarist Brett Campbell describes the tracks as “vignettes that tell the stories of people who deal with myriad sicknesses of the spirit… illnesses communicated by the world we live in, and the subjects are the symptoms of the disease.”

Additionally the band has simultaneously announced their most extensive North American tour since 2018. The Temporary Spaces North American Tour is a six-week trek that launches on June 6 at Growlers in Memphis, Tennessee and wraps up on August 3 at the White Oak Music Hall in Houston, Texas. Tickets are on-sale this Friday, March 22 at 10am local time. Very special guests for the trek include Rwake (June 6 to 9; 29), REZN (June 11 to 29), Inter Arma (July 11 to August 3), with The Keening opening on all dates.

Pallbearer are set to headline the opening night of Stumpfest X on April 11 at Mississippi Studios in Portland, Oregon. The band has also confirmed two special European performances: The Copenhell Metal Cruise (Copenhagen, Denmark to Oslo, Norway) from 25 October to 27 October, and 16 November at Helldorado in Eindhoven, Netherlands. More European dates will be announced soon.

Brett Campbell sheds light on the band’s decision to strip everything back on the forthcoming nearly hour-long album, stating, “These songs are a deeper exploration of dynamics and sonic color than anything we have done up to this point. I’m of the belief that true heaviness comes from emotional weight, and sometimes sheer bludgeoning isn’t the right approach to getting a feeling across.”

Five years in the making, with recording initially slated for 2020, and thwarted yet again in 2022, it was 2023 that saw the band members living locally to one another in Little Rock for the first time in nine years. As a group, they self-produced the album in their own, newly constructed studio (Idlewild Audio) and at Fellowship Hall Sound. Reflecting on this, bassist/vocalist Joseph D. Rowland remarked, “It’s ironic given that the album is largely centered around isolation, but it felt like it summoned us into being back together again in one town, after so long apart.”

The forthcoming Mind Burns Alive will be available on limited edition 2-LP copper vinyl, 2-LP orange vinyl, CD and digital download. Check out the cover art, tracklisting, and all physical versions below.
