Tombs Share “RKGD Audio Remix” Of “Sombre Ruin”

Tombs have teamed up with Alap Momin (aka Oktopus) for a new remix of their song “Sombre Ruins.” The updated track, which is tilted “Sombre Ruins Nothing Remains” (RKGD Audio Remix), is from the band’s new EP “Ex Oblivion,“ which will be released on July 13. Mike Hill had the following to say about the remix:

“For years I have admired the work of my good friend Alap Momin a.k.a. Oktopus so it was really cool to unleash him on a remix. He chose the song and I agreed; the fairly abstract nature of the original track was wide open territory for a really cool, sinister interpretation.”

Origin drummer John Longstreth commented:

“Here we are again! Announcing yet another tour! I am happy to report to you that Origin will be hitting the road with Abysmal Dawn, Tombs, and Killitorous! After a two year break, I think it’s easy to understand that everyone may be a little apprehensive, nervous, or maybe just flat out rusty from a 2-year break of not doing what we love, and LUCKILY we get to share this new beginning with some familiar touring friends in Abysmal Dawn!

No one is going to feel all that embarrassed about if I can’t remember how to set up a drum kit, or if Charles Elliott has taken on clean singing, or someone forgets where their dirty, sweaty, stinky, salty stage laundry goes in the van! (it goes in the trailer, dear reader, NOT the van. in a blue Ikea bag, if ya must know).

Along with us comes Ottawa’s Killitorous, and Tombs From Brooklyn, NY to shake things up with everything black, death, tech, doom, and straight out METAL! So come out and get up close and see what all 4 of these bands have been ruminating in for the past 2 years! See you on tour!”
