CHRISTIAN MISTRESS Is Hitting The "Open Road" With A New Song, Album, And Tour

Olympia, Washington's NWOBHM-inspired Christian Mistress is preparing to release its third album in five years, and, to whet the appetite of headbangers, Relapse Records, the band's label since 2011, has just released the first taste of To Your Death. The album is scheduled for release on September 18th but 'heads with a thirst for traditional metal can give a listen to "Open Road" right now. The track is a propulsive mix of early 80s heavy metal and hard rock that's anchored by vocalist Christine Davis's soulful, raspy voice. It's an appropriate track to blast while you're screaming down the highway in a muscle car.

Below you'll find a complete list of tour dates and venues. Get out of you bedroom and catch these defenders of the olde on the open road if you can.
