Cirith Ungol / 2024 Tour To Be Their Last Ever

Cult Heavy Metal legends Cirith Ungol have announced their official retirement from live performances, with the curtain falling on this era at the end of 2024. They will release their sixth full-length, Dark Parade, on 20 October 2023 via Metal Blade Records.

“After careful deliberation, we have decided that 2024 will be the final year that Cirith Ungol will be performing live,’ the band said in a statement today. “Having taken a twenty-five-year-long hiatus, we could never have imagined the tidal wave of love and support that would come from all of you upon our return.

“From the depths of our soul, we would like to thank every one of you for attending our shows and supporting our music.

“We are immensely proud of the work we have created in the past few years and are beyond excited about our latest epic album, Dark Parade.

“Legions, this is your call to arms. If you’ve never had the opportunity to see the band live, or if you want to see us perform once more, 2024 will be your last chance.

“We will be announcing shows worldwide in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for news. If you’re a promoter interested in booking the band, please contact our booking agents directly [Details below]

“The end approaches, but we’re not there yet. We look forward to seeing you all on the road, one final time. With our undying love and eternal gratitude.”

You never lost hope, you never have strayed,

Arise now my children, arise from the grave,

We lead not the weak, they won’t answer the call,

As chaos descends, false metal will fallLegions Arise
