"Today, we bring you EP closer, 'Adios'," Decibel issues with the new track, continuing, "XIBALBA's hallmark metallic riffage and pummeling breakdowns are still present, erupting from the slight respites the quintet offers before letting loose again."

One year since the release of their Southern Lord-released Tierra Y Libertad LP, XIBALBA returns with Diablo, Con Amor... Adios, the EP delivering three new tracks of downtuned, thundering riffs and grooves, and inescapably brutal breakdowns the quintet has become known for delivering over the past seven years. As with their prior titles, Diablo, Con Amor... Adios was recorded at The Pit Recording Studio with longtime cohort Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues, Disgrace) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Harm's Way), XIBABLA also once again secured artwork from Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Suffocation) to visually depict the wrath of these three relentless tracks.
XIBALBA will hit both the East and West Coasts of the US with two short tours surrounding the release of Diablo, Con Amor... Adios. First, the band endures an East Coast run through Cambridge, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn from February 17th through 19th. Returning home, the band will hit the West Coast, with shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Pomona, February 24th through 26th. Additional tour dates will be announced in the weeks ahead.
