Ripple Music is thrilled to announce the signing of heavy metal doomsters, CASTLE to a world-wide album deal!

California metal trio CASTLE have announced a slew of tour dates in support of their newest album, Deal Thy Fate, released Oct 20, 2018 by Ripple Music.
The upcoming U.S. dates, which feature stops at Black Smoke Conjuring SXSW showcase in Austin, TX and the NYDM Spring Bash in Milwaukee, WI, will kick off with a weeklong run to Texas in March followed by a three-week trek to the East Coast in April/May.
In addition, CASTLE have also been confirmed for the inaugural Monolith On The Mesa taking place in Taos, NM on May 17-18 alongside OM, The Obsessed and others, as well as this year’s edition of Northwest Terror Fest in Seattle, WA on May 30 – June 2.
Deal Thy Fate was recorded by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis) at Hallowed Halls in Portland, Oregon last spring and is currently available at the Ripple Music web shop here.
The band’s fifth album follows 2016’s critically-lauded Welcome To The Graveyardand builds on the stripped-down sound of its predecessor, pushing the envelope of classic metal with epic songs that hearken back to fuzzier times while keeping the pedal down on their own hard-edged, modern sound.
Check out CASTLE’s newest video for the track Red Phantom below.

CASTLE was forged in San Francisco in 2009 and released their debut full-length, In Witch Order, on Germany’s Ván Records in 2011. The album brought light to the newly-formed band and earned them “Album Of The Year” honors from Metal Hammer Norway. Shortly thereafter, the band joined the Prosthetic Records roster in North America and released both their critically-acclaimed sophomore album Blacklands, which led to a Canadian JUNO nomination for “Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year”, and 2014’s influential follow-up, Under Siege.

Since the release of their first album, CASTLE, which consists of vocalist/bassist Elizabeth Blackwell, guitarist/vocalist Mat Davis and various touring and recording drummers, have maintained a relentless tour schedule, performing over six-hundred shows worldwide alongside the likes of The Sword, Conan, Intronaut, and Pentagram among many others as well as appearances at some of the underground’s largest fests including Roadburn, and the London and Berlin Desertfests and the band’s first ever tour of Japan last year.
