RUE Premiere New Track; Live Actions Confirmed

Akron, Ohio's sludge metal bastards RUE are preparing to unleash 'Thorns', their first full-length album in over seven years, via Shifty Records. A street date of November 15th now officially confirmed for the CD release, with a full-on vinyl pressing to follow in early 2012. Bearing over an hour of RUE's gritty, low-end debauchery, 'Thorns' takes the band's sound in some new directions, the band having spent the last four years below the public radar honing their craft, cultivating influences and focusing wholly on crafting their most potent tunes to date.

You can listen to the new track 'Brown' at this location.

RUE will take their corruptive thunder to the streets in support of 'Thorns' over the coming months, with several newly confirmed gigs locked down for the first half of November, including a record release show for the album on November 12th in Kent, Ohio.
