British rock and rollers THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have announced a back-to-the-roots UK tour, which is due to kick off on November 6th in Chester.

Following a whirlwind few years in which the band released two Top 20 albums, toured around the world and shared the stage with rock megastars such as THE ROLLING STONES, THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have decided to reconnect with their home audience with an exclusive run of dates around the UK, where they'll be playing in smaller venues than usual in order to create a more intimate experience for both band and fans alike.

The band will also be reaching parts of the country they haven't been to for some time and will be treating fans to brand new music as they continue to work on the follow-up to 2016's 'White Bear'.

THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT guitarist Paul Sayer comments:
"This tour is all about us getting out in the UK and connecting with those fans all over the country that helped us build the band.  It's about getting up close and personal with those guys.  We've got loads of new material to play as well as there's nowhere better than a sweaty club to road test some new music!  Can't bloody wait..."

Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, with exclusive pre-sales on Wednesday and Thursday.  Head to http://www.thetemperancemovement.com/live for links.

ENTOMBED's legendary debut 'Left Hand Path', along with CARCASS' classic third album 'Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious', have been reissued on Full Dynamic Range vinyl and are available to purchase once again.

Earache Records revolutionised the way music fans can enjoy their favourite metal albums several years ago with the launch of the Full Dynamic Range (FDR) format.  A counteraction to the "Loudness Wars", Full Dynamic Range vinyl ensures that fans hear the music as it was intended to sound - pure and organic audio pressed straight to 180-gram vinyl from the original studio analogue or DAT tapes.

After the original FDR pressings of ENTOMBED's 'Left Hand Path' and CARCASS' 'Necroticism' quickly sold out, fans have since been clamouring for another pressing, and are now able to get their hands on these metal classics once more.

Originally released in 1990, ENTOMBED's 'Left Hand Path' defined the "Swedish sound" replicated by hundreds of other acts and came to represent the primal death metal sound that was to break through into the mainstream in the early '90s.  ENTOMBED were the first extreme metal band to enter the charts in their native Sweden, before becoming an international success.

Liverpool's death metal pioneers CARCASS are often credited with shaping the entire genre, pushing boundaries with their shocking imagery whilst evolving and innovating with each new album.  1991's 'Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious' is the band's third album and the first to feature guitarist Michael Amott (ARCH ENEMY, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, CARNAGE).

The next titles due for FDR represses are BOLT THROWER's 'War Master' and TERRORIZER's 'World Downfall', which are both due to be released on July 21st.

The Earache Express has rolled into Glastonbury, providing attendees of one of the world's largest festivals with its first ever stage dedicated solely to extreme music.

The new venue is housed in a recycled London Underground tube carriage situated in the south east corner of the Shangri-La area and is curated by the legendary British independent label, Earache Records.

Designed to provide a place for like-minded souls to congregate, as well as for those who just want to experience a different side of music than is typically offered at the festival, the Earache Express demonstrates that metal and punk has something to say, showcasing bands with heartfelt and strongly-held beliefs and all with something to debate - loudly.

The Earache Express is running from 9pm to 6am daily, and is hosting the likes of EXTREME NOISE TERROR, Singaporean grindcore trio WORMROT, and former frontman for punk revolutionaries CRASS, Steve Ignorant.  Punk legends DEAD KENNEDYS and grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH are also appearing as part of the lineup on the Truth Stage, which sits right next to the Earache Express in Shangri-La.
