Bell Witch are set to release Future's Shadow Part 1: The Clandestine Gate tomorrow, April 21st, via Profound Lore Records, which takes a page from its predecessor, Mirror Reaper (2017), in that it presents one sole track. Spanning 83-minutes in length, The Clandestine Gate towers over listeners with trancelike scope, forming only an intro to a planned triptych of longform albums, collectively called Future's Shadow. Additionally, the album will release in physical formats on June 9th and be played in its entirety, tomorrow, April 21st, at the renowned Roadburn Festival. The harrowing cover by way of Jordi Diaz Alamà is an enticing introduction to the world breathing within.

Bassist Dylan Desmond comments of the triptych:

"Eventually, the end of the last album will be looped around to the first to make a circle. It can be continuously looped, like a day cycle. This would be dawn. The next one would be noon. The following one would be sundown, with dawn and sundown both having something of night."

Check out the behind the scenes teaser below and pre-order the album.
