Pallbearer emerged from Little Rock, Arkansas in 2012 with a stunning debut full-length, Sorrow and Extinction. The record, which played like a seamless 49-minute doom movement, melded pitch-perfect vintage sounds with a triumphant modern sensibility that made songs about death and loss feel joyfully ecstatic. Pallbearer possessed what many other newer metal groups didn’t: perfect guitar tone, classic hooks, and a singer who could actually sing.
Pallbearer released “Atlantis” b/w “Thorns (live)” as the July, 2019 installment of the Sub Pop Singles Club. The vinyl version of this release was only available to those who subscribed to the Singles Club by March 3rd, 2019.
