Since 1985, NEUROSIS surpassed the boundaries of any genre, never ceasing to mutate and progress their songwriting and sonic delivery, and never failing to mesmerize audiences both in the studio and onstage. In 2012 NEUROSIS returned with the monumental release of their tenth studio album, Honor Found In Decay which went on to receive countless plaudits from the press on a global scale, and was positioned highly in end of year polls – reaffirming why NEUROSIS remain one of the most important heavy acts in existence. Their journey continues with these UK and European shows in support of this vital album, and long do we hope their voyage continues into the future…
As a reminder and a taste of what is to come, watch and share this immense live footage performing ‘At The Well’ live in Oakland.

“It is the overwhelming physicality of their monolithic riffs that remains their most incisive musical tool. An underlying sense of disquiet and existential yearning has long thrummed at the heart of Neurosis, but even by their usual standards the grim restlessness of the opener, All Rage in Gold, packs a devastating punch. On the extraordinary dynamic peaks and troughs of At the Well, the band wield near-silence as a weapon, its unsettling fragility emerging from clouds of ugly distortion and snail’s-pace tribal percussion. Similarly, the sprawling Casting of the Ages forces the subtle and the grotesque together in an exhilarating but doom-laden embrace. In less skilful hands, this relentless sonic oppression would be gruelling, but by expressing human frailty with such visceral abandon, Neurosis have once again turned darkness into euphoria.” – 4/5 GUARDIAN
“Neurosis have taken a more complex route: skillfully weaving strains of folk, prog and even chilled ambience into their patented doom metal/hardcore tapestry and often obtaining staggering results in the process…Low points are refreshingly absent, while at the record’s heart are two epic, 10 minute set pieces. The maximum heaviosity of Casting Of The Ages initially seems an impossible act to follow, yet the breathtaking, Porcupine Tree-style scope of My Heart For Deliverance manages it with style to spare, throwing down the gauntlet for all would-be-future-shaping rock’n’roll alchemists into the bargain.” 4/5 RECORD COLLECTOR
“Craggy riffs and swathed in misty synthesiser, and a firm control of dynamics lend “Bleeding The Pigs” and “Casting Of The Ages” a compelling sense of ebb and flow, raging intensity giving way to sombre piano lamentations and vocalist Scott kelly’s weathered, Tom Waits growl.” – 8/10 UNCUT
“An excellent return.” – Q MAGAZINE
“Another spiritual journey into the very heart of mankind. Completely and utterly mind-blowing.” – 9/10 METAL HAMMER
“The most stunning aspects of ‘Honor Found In Decay’ come from Neurosis’ grasp of dynamics…as ever, in the hands of these uncompromising sorcerers, true heaviness can be as much about the directness as disorientation, and as much about the sinister rumble as an unearthly roar.” – 5/5 TERRORIZER
“Whilst one of Neurosis’ shortest albums, it’s a truly titanic effort that will, like most of their oeuvre, likely take years of listening to ever fully appreciate.” – ROCK A ROLLA
“The depth passion and mystique evident throughout these seven pieces hammer home the point that Neurosis are masters of their ever-evolving art. And Honor Found In Decay is another milestone in a catalogue which consists of nothing but milestones.” – 5K KERRANG!
