Robed black metal renegades Batushka have celebrated a new deal with Napalm Records by announcing an extensive set of 2023 tour dates.

Batushka’s critically acclaimed debut album, Litourgiya (2015) was followed by sophomore Hospodi (2019). The Polish powerhouse predict more ritualistic black metal on their new label soon.

The band tell us: “We have a mutual understanding regarding the telling of this new story and spreading the gospel of Batushka around the globe. Be on the lookout for our new album, and get ready to experience Batushka in all the corners of the world!”

Napalm Records A&R manager Sebastian Münch states: “Batushka are undoubtedly one of the most creative and innovative black metal bands in recent years. We had the pleasure of welcoming Batushka live at this year’s edition of the Metal On The Hill Festival in Graz, Austria, and were immediately impressed by the band as a brilliant live act and great entertainers. I am super excited to be a part of the release of the new studio album next year!”

Batushka will be joined by their countrymen and labelmates Hate on their New Year tour, which includes two UK dates.
