NEW MERCH: Altars of Grief

February 11, 2020
It has now been nearly two years since the release of the amazing "Iris" record from Altars of Grief and as there is currently no Altars of Grief merch available online. The band and I decided to rectify that and we commissioned Dylan Garrett Smith to design a new piece which will be printed on both shirts and hoodies! The hoodie design will also adorn the new Altars of Grief sigil designed by Moonroot Art!

We're now taking pre-orders for hoodies and shirts and orders will be shipped out mid-March!

Words can’t express how grateful we are to everyone who’s followed us on this journey, and to all of the wonderful people we’ve had the privilege of meeting over the years. When we formed this band back in 2013, we couldn’t have imagined that it would grow into what it is now, or the kind of impact that it’s come to have on ...

This week I heard “Iris” for the first time, the second album by Altars of Grief. What a cool album !!! So beautiful. As far as I am concerned, one of the best so far in 2018! I needed to know more about this. I asked if we could do an interview and fortunately they thought it was a good idea. But in my research, maybe I find out some bad news …

Since then, the band have produced a split vinyl EP, and the recently-released sophomore follow-up 'Iris', which was our May album of the month. That seemed like a good time to find out what's been going on with the band over the last few years, and...

1. Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

Things have actually been pretty quiet over the past year or so. We've opted to make finishing the record our priority. Unfortunately, back in May of last year, we lost our guitarist, Evan, who I started the band with. Now that the album is almost out, though, things have started to pick ...
