The tracks for the forthcoming EP are actually based on tracks from their latest album, “Ritual”, that have been reworked in a gothic western style.
Out now is a first single, “Dark Country. Ritual”. A official video for this track is available below. The band says this about the first single: “Old Ritual went through its rebirth in a new sound, new form and comprehension. And it was in the gothic atmosphere of the old west that he was born again. Ritual continues, prepare for the Ritual!”

Regarding the full EP they say: “We’ve said many times that country and blues music are some of our favorite music genres. This EP is our tribute and memory to those great musicians who stood at the very origins of American country and blues music, those whose music inspires us daily. For us, working on this album has become the most unusual, but at the same time extremely interesting experience. And we really love that we did it!”
