Holy Grail’s upcoming tour is a quick turnaround for the band as it just wrapped up a twelve-date tour alongside Night Demon. That tour included a performance at Death Angel’s second annual Christmas Show on December 16th. Flotsam and Jetsam, Mordred, and The Ghost Next Door were also on hand for that show.

Times of Pride and Peril is Holy Grail’s third full-length studio recording. It comes three years after the release of the band’s highly acclaimed sophomore recording Ride The Void. That album was touted by Blabbermouth as being “an impressive confluence of dazzling musicianship and catchy, anthemic songwriting.” The band’s upcoming album focuses on the rise and fall of an empire. It is not a concept record, though. It was produced by John Spiker (Tenacious D, Filter). Pre-orders for the CD, LP, and digital downloads of the album begin this Friday, January 8th. The band will debut a new song from the album on the same day. More information on this and more is available online now at:
