Highly regarded blackened hardcore band  CALLIGRAM  have announced a spring headline tour following the release of their acclaimed LP  Askesis  (November 24,  Basick Records ).  Dates: 25.03 Dreadfest, Leeds, UK 28.03 The Underworld, London, UK (supporting Birds In A Row and Coilguns) 31.03 DIY Cafe Lille, France 01.04 Koerspeerd Bruge, Belgium 02.04 TBC 03.04 MCP Apache Music, Fontaine L-Eveque, Belgium 04.04 DB's Utrecht, Netherlands 05.04 Music City, Antwerp, Belgium   Askesis  is a viciously dark and atmospheric ride through bleakened lands of sonic destruction, a sound that has already seen the band championed by Metal Hammer, Noisey, Terrorizer, and more.  Purchase  Askesis :  http://music.basickrecords.com/album/askesis    Askesis  is certainly a record that’s suitably deserving of such a grandiose introduction. Led by the Italian  Matteo Rizzardo ’s tortured shrieking vocals,  Calligram  are a band not for the faint of heart. However, like all good musicians,  Calligram  know when to hold back as much as push forward.   The London-based band are true testament to modern music’s global outlook: Italian, Brazilian, and French nationals creating an album of impressive heft. For fans of  Impaled Nazarene ,  Belphegor ,  Behemoth , and more  Askesis  is not an album worth missing out on.  Forming in 2011,  Calligram 's first release under their current moniker was 2016's  Demimonde , mastered by Alan Douches ( The Dillinger Escape Plan ,  Every Time I Die ,  Darkest Hour ).   Calligram  quickly caught the attention of Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, Punktastic & Kerrang! Radio's Alex Baker, amongst others, supporting  Downfall of Gaia ,  Wolfbrigade , and toured around the UK and Europe.   Askesis  was recorded in February 2017 at the Ranch Production House with Lewis Johns ( Rolo Tomassi ,  Svalbard ,  Employed To Serve ) & mastered by Audiosiege's Brad Boatright ( Trap Them ,  Mutoid Man ,  NAILS ).
