As their name foretells, Toronto heavy metallers PALE MARE are stampeding across Eastern Canada (QC/PEI/NS/NB) this May bringing with them death in the form of crushing, fuzzy groove over a total of nine stops.
Centered around big loud riffs, PALE MARE can be defined as thick and groovy with their upcoming album that is a “substantial step up from the first effort”, 2017’s self-titled EP released via Medusa Crush Records. The band explains further:
“The songs are heavier, louder, groovier, more crushing and they showcase a much more diverse side of the band, where we are able to explore different sonic territory. When we hit the road, fans will get some new sounds to feast on!”
Quoting their music as “loud, intense, ugly and heavy as fuck”, PALE MARE looks forward to devastating fans especially those who also enjoy Mastodon, Baroness and High On Fire.
“When fans listen to the music we want to a black hole to tear open in their mind and suck all the mundane dregs of life into the nothingness of the void, and the listener can experience freedom as they surrender to the sheer power and might of the riffs and the music.”
Fans can accept their fate on the following tour stops listed below.
PALE MARE has shared the stage with Eyehategod, Corrosion of Conformity, Windhand, Satans Satyres, Weedeater, Mutoid Man, Serial Hawk, Black Wizard, King Buffalo and Perturbator.

Pale Mare is a Toronto-based heavy metal band, born out of the desire to play music that is loud, aggressive, and full of thick groovy riffs. The band released their self-titled EP in November of 2017 through Medusa Crush Records and was met with high praise from the likes of Metal Hammer, Exclaim!, and many more.
Having provided local support for Eyehategod, Corrosion of Conformity, Windhand, Satans Satyres, Weedeater, Serial Hawk, Black Wizard, King Buffalo, Set and Setting and Perturbator, Pale Mare have established themselves in their home town of Toronto as a massive force to be reckoned with, and have attracted a loyal fan base through relentlessly crushing live performances. Their sound has been likened to early Baroness, High On Fire, Mastodon, and Black Tusk; full of fire, attitude, brimstone, tone, and soul.

“Filled with dense, High On Fire-style groove-laden riffs, the release combines crushing aggression with doomy rhythms and harsh noisy soundscapes” – Exclaim!
