Abigail Williams prepares new album

Official press release: Abigail Williams has nearly completed the writing phase on material that is planned for the band's new album, expected for release in early 2012. Feverishly working since their return from their most recent European tour, the band is looking forward to testing out some of the new songs later next month when they return to stateside venues for a string of dates that is set to begin August 25 in Las Vegas and conclude when the band performs alongside Morbid Angel in Los Angeles on September 23. The band's European tour was their first since 2009. The tour took Abigail Williams through twelve countries in a quick 21 days. Band leader Sorceron notes, "The shows were excellent. We had a great time with our friends in Iskald and Thulcandra and hope we can join them again in the future. A big thanks to everyone who came out to the shows; we really appreciate your support. The upcoming dates have us headlining in the west including the Rocky Mountain Goat Roast; we are co-headlining the fest with Misery Index. The Scottsdale show has us sharing the stage once more with ex-hometown friends Vehemence and Landmine Marathon. And what more can I say about playing with Morbid Angel other than how awesome it will be to finally share the stage with a band we grew up listening to?" Abigail Williams' still untitled third album is set to be recorded in September. Sorceron says, "the new material is a continuation of our last album but with more atmosphere and far more extreme tempos. We are adding back some of the symphonic elements that were on In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns album but without sacrificing any of the edge that was on In the Absence of Light. So far we are really happy with everything."
