ABIGAIL WILLIAMS: Enter The Studio Today To Record New Album

Abigail Williams will begin recording their third full-length album today. The process begins in the band’s new home of Southern California as the band enter Keene Machine Studios with The Faceless’ Michael Keene and band frontman Ken Sorceron engineering. Former Abigail Williams and Black Dahlia Murder drummer Zach Gibson will be playing on the album, as previous band mate Ken Bedene focuses on The Aborted.

“We are very excited to announce the start of drum tracking for our third full-length. Drummer Zach Gibson will be behind the kit on this record, which is exciting for us because we have not recorded with him since the Legend EP,” states Sorceron. Having recently returned from a short ten date regional tour tightening up their new five-piece line-up, the band’s ranks and sound continue to evolve and this third effort is no different. “Expect some interesting twists and turns once again with this album as we plan to double track some of the drums and some of the compositions are quite lengthy, one even reaching the 15-minute plus range. This will prove to be our most epic material to date,” teases Sorceron as to the direction of the new material. “We plan to video our progress and upload video blogs to our Youtube channel as we go.”

Abigail Williams will continue recording the new album over the next month, set for completion in late October before embarking on their previously announced North American tour supporting Norway’s legendary Mayhem. The new album has an anticipated January release, followed by additional US tours supporting Dark Funeral and then Deicide.

Abigail Williams September Live Appearances:

  • 9/22/2011 Whisky Richards – Santa Barbara, CA
  • 9/23/2011 House of Blues – West Hollywood, CA w/ Morbid Angel

Stay tuned for more updates on Abigail Williams’ as the record takes shape, and as they hit the road on a massive tour schedule over the next six months and onward.
