ABIGAIL WILLIAMS Headlining Dates Begin Tonight; Nonstop Touring For Entire First Quarter Of 2012 Confirmed

Having just completed a massive thirty-six date North American tour supporting Mayhem, the ABIGAIL WIILIAMS touring machine will continue on the road this week for six headlining dates, beginning in Wilmington, Delaware tonight. Taking only a few weeks off after this run of dates, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS hit the road on another set of headlining performances on their way to provide direct support for Dark Funeral’s North American assault engulfing all of February, immediately followed by a full tour with Deicide through the end of March! A full list of tour dates is posted below.

ABIGAIL WILLIAMS‘ massive ongoing tour schedule is to pummel audiences with new material from the band’s new album, Becoming. Confirmed for release in North America on January 24, 2012 — once again on Candlelight Records — the band’s third full-length Becoming is already stirring interest in the metal media; its organic, churning tracks offering some stark contrast to previous ABIGAIL WILLIAMS releases. The first single from Becoming, “Ascension Sickness,” in its second week at radio has already broken the top 20 on CMJ (on a 11-minute single!). The track continues to get heavy requests and plays nationwide as the track continues to infect the masses. Stream “Ascension Sickness” right here.

Clocking in at nearly an hour in length, Becoming ushers in a provocative new chapter for the adventurous band. Containing six vast tracks, truly the band’s most expressive and complicated to date, Becoming was recorded in various warehouses throughout Los Angeles, with the lineup for the album including returning guitarist Ian Jekelis, studio drummer Zach Gibson (ex-The Black Dahlia Murder) and as always, vocalist/guitarist Ken Sorceron, who handled all mixing, mastering, production and engineering duties. View the cover art by infamous graphic artist Metastazis (Morbid Angel, Watain, Ulver, Nachtmystium, etc.) and more at this location. Preorders for the record are available from Candlelight.
