Portland doom quartet USNEA have finished recording their third full-length album entitled Portals Into Futility. The album is set for a September 2017 release via Relapse Records. Inspired by dystopian science-fiction and the painful intersection of today’s crushing reality, Portals Into Futility is 5 songs and 56 minutes of expertly crafted and elegantly depressive doom/sludge. The album was recorded earlier in 2017 at Caravan Recordings and Haywire Studios in Portland, OR with Jared “Fester” See. Complete album details will be announced shortly.

Additionally, USNEA have announced a run of European dates this Fall as direct support for Ufomammut. The tour commences on September 30 in Paris and ends October 22 in Munich while hitting 19 different cities. The tour includes appearances at multiple festivals including Up In Smoke, Doornroosje Festival and Keep It Doom. The band will also perform two exclusive US festival sets at Northwest Terror on June 16 and Psycho Las Vegas on August 18. A complete listing of dates is available below.

Stay tuned for more info on USNEA and stream their previous titles via Bandcamp at this location.
