ABIGAIL WILLIAMS: Currently Embarked On East Coast Tour

American horde, Abigail Williams, is currently crusading through the Eastern half of the country on tour now. Having already killed towns through the Midwest and into upstate New York, the band will storm Brooklyn tonight, continuing to inundate the rest of the East Coast and through the Gulf Coast states through April 12th.

Abigail Williams will go back out on the road from mid-May through mid-June with Lecherous Nocturne and Panzerfaust.

Following three massive LPs through Candlelight — In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns [2008], In the Absence of Light [2010] and Becoming [2012] — among several EPs and singles since their inception exactly one decade ago, Abigail Williams’ all-engulfing delivery of the black metal craft is ever-morphing, navigating its own path amid subgenre categories and cult traditions on a continually expanding course of sonic exploration. Fronted by sole founding member, guitarist/vocalist Ken Sorceron, also currently of Lord Mantis, the band’s lineup also includes guitarist Jeff Wilson (Chrome Waves, Wolvhammer, Doomsday), touring bassist John Porada (Nachtmystium) and touring drummer Charlie Fell (Lord Mantis).

Abigail Williams’ fourth full-length album will be completed for release later this year.
