Woods of Ypres Issues Updates on Albums and A Tour

As I write this I had heard the bands name before but hadn't really listened. So I'm brand spanking new to this band and what I've heard so far I'm really enjoying. Woods of Ypres is a Canadian band that plays a form of blackened doom metal. They've been around a few years and have hopped to different labels with the current being Earache Records. Earache is getting ready to reissue the 2009 album Woods 4 : The Green Album on March 14th in Europe and the 22nd in North America and a tour is kicking off next week in support of this. Tour Dates and a video after the jump.

I normally don't get into too much doom metal but this is good stuff. It reminds me a bit of Agalloch in some aspects but still their own entity. Here are some more links to check out the band with.
