Seattle doom metal duo, BELL WITCH, have confirmed a European tour – during which they will play their 2017 album, Mirror Reaper, in full. The 83-minute opus was released via Profound Lore to widespread acclaim.

Although the band have played part of Mirror Reaper live at previous shows, the full album has only been performed once in full, at this year’s Roadburn Festival – complete with visuals created by Taylor Bednarz, and vocals from Aerial Ruin’s Erik Moggridge. This full-scale performance will be replicated in its entirety at a number of special, seated shows across Europe at the end of the year.

The band comments:
We performed the first half of Mirror Reaper this past April in much of Europe, and we’re very excited to return and perform the album in its entirety. This will feature Erik Moggridge of Aerial Ruin performing in the second half of the song with us. It’s humbling to have gotten such a positive reaction to this album from so many people.

In late 2017, director, Taylor Bednarz, created a feature-length music video to accompany the Mirror Reaper album. The film is a video collage comprised of dozens of archival films. Each of these clips are woven together with the album to build a patient, heavy, and haunting narrative. The film aims to hold the viewer in the state of a lucid dream, feeling trapped as a spectre drifting through places of darkness.

All shows on the tour will be performed in front of the Mirror Reaper film. The trailer for the film is available to view below;
