Italian death metal quartet HOUR OF PENANCE have announced their first-ever Australian tour dates, which will see them support Behemoth. The tour will kick off in late October following a European tour with Psycroptic and Dyscarnate. The full routings for both tours can be found below.

Lead guitarist Giulio Moschini stated, “We’re very happy to announce that we will tour Australia for the first time, and we will do that by opening for one of the greatest bands around…Behemoth! We couldn’t be happier to end the ‘Sedition’ touring cycle by touring with such a great band! See you on the road!”

HOUR OF PENANCE’s Prosthetic debut, “Sedition,” labeled by Outburn as an “explosive brand of complex brutality,” positioned the band as a force to be reckoned with. The album saw the band placed on several bills throughout Europe and the U.S. alongside some of their genre’s most acclaimed acts, including Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder, Skeletonwitch, Nile, Deicide and Belphegor.
In addition to appearing at several international festivals, the band has recently been writing material for a new album. Says Moschini, “The works for the follow-up of ‘Sedition’ are almost done and we will enter the studio in October, right after the Australian tour. Can’t wait!” Fellow guitarist Paolo Pieri added, “The new material sounds totally fresh and will be a bone-crushing feast for old and new fans of Hour of Penance.” The upcoming album is expected out in early 2014.
