West Virginia progressive heavy rockers unveil “Eleleth” video via MetalSucks 

PARKERSBURG, WV – Horseburner will release their debut full-length, Dead Seeds, Barren Soil, via Hellmistress Records on July 14 to coincide with the launch of a tour alongside Maryland’s Cavern. Today, premieres a video for “Eleleth,” the album’s longest and closing track.

The progressive heavy rockers – recently announced as taking part in the inaugural Descendants of Crom Festival on Sept. 30 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – originally issued Dead Seeds, Barren Soil digitally in July 2016. After a massive response to the album, Hellmistress Records snapped up the band for the CD and an impending vinyl release due later this year.

“I’ve had my eye on Horseburner for a while,” notes Hellmistress Records founder Melanie Streko, formerly of MeteorCity. “They’re the perfect band to launch the label, with a take on heavy that’s their own. Dead Seeds, Barren Soil kicked my ass and I’m excited to give their album a wider audience! They put on an amazing high energy show so be sure to catch them live when they come to town!”

Horseburner are set to begin their stint of East Coast tour dates this week, and will head through Ohio and into Canada before circling back into New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Washington D.C., with bassist Mike Lorenzen pulling double-duty also playing in Cavern. Dates follow here:
