Official press release:

Depicted as "one of the most sublime and beautiful collections of 2015" (Outburn), with their cinematic epic Laurestine, Brooklyn-based blackened post-metal/hardcore outfit So Hideous are excited to reveal they will release an orchestral version of the album in correlation with their upcoming first-ever appearances on the West Coast this May alongside Bosse-de-Nage.

Laurestine (Orchestral) will be released via Prosthetic Records on May 6 across all digital platforms (iTunes, Amazon MP3 and Bandcamp). The band will kick off their West Coast tour the prior day (May 5) in Tempe, AZ and will head northwest along the coast before finalizing their trek in San Francisco, Calif. on May 15.

Laurestine (Orchestral) was recorded by the 30-member The First Light Orchestra at Little Field Performance and Art Space in Brooklyn with Chris Montgomery (Mumford and Sons, Lily Allen) while being engineered at Portsmouth, NH's Wild Arctic Recording Studios by Dean Baltulonis (Lucero, Sick of it All). A concept album about a man's interior journey in the minutes after death, Laurestine begins with "Yesteryear" and continues through seven tracks, connected seamlessly as one long song. "Cinematic" to the utmost, the album paints vivid pictures – explosive, majestic, cathartic.

Track listing:

1. Yesteryear
2. Hereafter
3. Relinquish
4. The Keepsake
5. Falling Cedars
6. The True Pierce
7. A Faint Whisper
