A Flourishing Scourge tour dates
The Seattle area extreme prog metal band A Flourishing Scourge has posted the dates for its tour in the fall.
A Flourishing Scourge is an all original progressive blackened death metal outfit hailing from the gloomy metropolis of Seattle, Washington. Inspired by a degrading society and the destructive negligence of man, AFS is a pummeling force of misanthropic visions and apocalyptic consequences while still finding rare, intimate moments of solace and hope amidst the carnage.
AFS began in 2013 under the original moniker Begotten, when Tye Jones and Josh Keifer discovered a shared taste in musical expression. They quickly began writing and recording demo material and were soon ready to seek out other members. Kevin Carbrey joined in 2014 and the band officially became A Flourishing Scourge. By 2015 Andrew Dennis completed the lineup and the band began establishing itself in the Seattle scene.
The band’s first EP, As Beauty Fades Away, was released in September 2015 on their own independent label, Begotten Records. The EP consists of the bands four original demo tracks, re-recorded and performed by its full lineup.
Currently, AFS is playing shows in the Pacific Northwest in support of the EP and finishing post-production on their first full-length album. The album was recorded at Gojira's Silver Cord Studio in NYC in June of 2016, and features Decrepit Birth's Samus Paulicelli on drums. As of July 2016, Portland-Super-Drummer Elijah Losch has taken over the drum throne, and The 'Scourge is currently planning a west-coast tour for the fall of 2016, to coincide with the album's release.
