Little Rock, Arkansas-based ruminant progressive doom quartet, Pallbearer, recently premiered a brand new track entitled ‘Dropout‘ as the 53rd instalment of the Adult Swim Singles Program. The song, which is available digitally today, represents a subtle expansion of the singular doom-prog metal sound the Arkansas outfit is known for.

To coincide with this release, the band have also made an accompanying mini doc available which gives a behind the scenes look at the recording of ‘Dropout‘ – recorded at Fellowship Hall Sound in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Comments the band on the single: “We have almost always written music intended to exist as part of an album, with common musical and lyrical threads that tie many elements together into one release. Being freed from those confines in recording this song allowed us to  explore themes and immediacy that might not have been uncovered in our more typical “large format” composition process.

Dropout” follows the band’s 2017 critically acclaimed album Heartless which was recorded entirely to analogue tape at Fellowship Hall Sound, Little Rock, Arkansas between June and August 2016. The record was produced by Pallbearer, and mixed by widely known producer Joe Barresi (Tool, The Melvins, QOTSA, FuManchu). Engineering was handled by Jason Weinheimer and Zach Reeves, and mastered by Grammy winning mastering engineer Dave Collins (Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Soundgarden, Metallica).

Pallbearer will return to UK and Europe this summer for a run that spans 11 countries and 21 club/festival shows, concluding on August 16th at Germany’s Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbuhl.
