Southern California dominators XIBALBA will release their anticipated sophomore LP Hasta La Muerte via Southern Lord Records on August 14th in North America. While still a month from release, the new album is already reaping mass praise from media outlets internationally, the band’s intense style infusing some most doom-ridden tones one will experience within the hardcore genre with unstoppable force.

In support of Hasta La Muerte, XIBALBA will tear through North America on a month-long trek. The outfit will tour alongside their previous tourmates Alpha & Omega, as well as labelmates Power Trip for the vast majority of the shows. The tour actions kick off with XIBALBA’s performances at The Power Of The Riff West in Los Angeles on August 11th and includes another performance at the first installment of The Power Of The Riff East in Brooklyn on September 1st.

Taking their down-tuned assault to iniquitous new dimensions, XIBALBA’s ravenous breakdowns hit with the force of tsunamis and their riffs like mires of quicksand on Hasta La Muerte, showcasing more than ever how well the unit delivers such low-end savagery while remaining resilient, undeviating from their course of destruction. The album now confirmed for North American release on August 14th, the band recorded with Taylor Young (of labelmates Nails), and outsourced the album’s powerful cover art concept to renowned death metal artist Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc.).
