NEGATIVE THIRTEEN Release New Single "Casket Trail"

Negative Thirteen have returned with their next single of 2024, the crushing sludge-infested "Casket Trail".

The band comments "Our new single, CASKET TRAIL, was inspired by the fear that we all must face our mortal end and that some people are forced to look back on all the mistakes they have made during their lifetime to find redemption."


Formed in 1999, the Pittsburgh, PA, quartet, NEGATIVE THIRTEEN (once known as NEGATIVE THEORY), disbanded in 2003 having released their self-titled debut. Reforming two decades later, in 2021, original members drummer Chip Reynolds, vocalist Scott Fisher, and guitarist Edward Banchs reformed with the 2021 addition of bassist Mary Bielich. Subsequently completing their second album, Mourning Asteri, in late 2021, NEGATIVE THIRTEEN released their first live album Live From Black Forge in November 2023. The band are continuing to grow with the new 2024 single "Horizon Divides". 

Musically, NEGATIVE THIRTEEN draws creative influence from the likes of EYEHATEGOD, VISION OF DISORDER alongside RUSH and HELMET. The outfit describe their sound as post-punk infested stoner/sludge/doomcore, ultimately leaving the genre gates wide open to produce their own distinctive brand of heavy metal.
