Rosetta And City Of Ships Release Split Record Ahead Of Australian Tour

Written by Mike Solo on June 18, 2012

US post metal titans ROSETTA are returning to Australia – and they’re bringing their buddies CITY OF SHIPS along with them. To celebrate, the bands have teamed up for a split release, featuring a mix of rarities and hard to find material.

The record showcases both band’s mastery of the post-metal genre, with a blend of powerful riffs, subtle dynamics and solid grooves. With 4 tracks from City of Ships and 2 lengthy tracks from Rosetta, the record is billed as an EP and clocks in at around 40 minutes.

The record will be released July 11, ahead of their Australian tour with Brisbane ‘sunshine metal’ act NUCLEAR SUMMER.
