ABIGAIL WILLIAMS Issues Single From Candlelight Records-Bound The Accuser LP Via Revolver; Tour With Today Is The Day Begins

[photo by Levan TK]
 
As US black metal outfit, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, prepares for their latest full-length studio album, The Accuser, to see release via Candlelight Records at the end of October, the first single from the record has been issued in the form of an exclusive premiere of "Path Of Broken Glass" through Revolver Magazine. Additionally, the band's massive co-headlining North American tour with Today Is the Day begins tonight.
 
Closing a three-year gap since their last album, the eight hymns comprising ABIGAIL WILLIAMS' corrosive The Accuser are bleak, dark, and infinitely engrossing, and will quickly be viewed as the band's best work since their genesis in Los Angeles in 2004. The lineup, fronted by founding vocalist/guitarist Ken Sorceron (ex-Lord Mantis), now features guitarist Jeff Wilson (Wolvhammer, Chrome Waves, Doomsday, La Chant Funebre), and drummer Charlie Fell (Cobalt, ex-Lord Mantis, ex-Avichi) with recording bassist Will Lindsay (Indian, Lord Mantis, Anatomy Of Habit) and live bassist John Porada (Negative Mantra, Terminate, ex-Nachtmystium). The diseased offering was recorded, mixed and mastered in just five days by Sorceron at the band's home studio in Olympia, Washington, and boasts a guest appearance by Neill Jameson (Krieg, Twilight) and the tripnotic cover renderings of Portland-based illustrator/tattoo artist, Stevie Floyd (Dark Castle, Taurus).
 
With The Accuser now less than two months from release, the first single from the record has been issued, as Revolver Magazine exclusively offers album opener "Path Of Broken Glass" to the public. Offers Ken Sorceron of the track, which features vocals by drummer Charlie Fell rather than Sorceron himself, and what fans can expect to hear on the upcoming dates,  "Instead of doing all the vocals myself like I usually do I had Charlie Fell on 'Path Of Broken Glass' and Neill Jameson on 'Forever Kingdom Of Dirt', two friends whose voices I really dig a lot. My buddy Lucas from a band called Spectral Hatchery in Olympia also lent his voice on parts of 'Godhead' and 'Nuummite' with some throat singing type stuff. We plan to play five songs off the new record live on the co-headlining run with Today Is The Day. "

ABIGAIL WILLIAMS' The Accuser will see release on October 30th via Candlelight Records, and preorders have been made available, the CD HERE and digital HERE.
 
As a precursor to its release, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS will bring their audio slayings to the stage on a thirty-four-city North American tour with visionary metal trio, Today Is the Day. The tour kicks off in Salt Lake City tonight, Friday, September 11th, and runs through most of the US and into Canada, ending on October 16th in San Francisco.
 
Additional tour dates and further audio samples from The Accuser will be released in the coming days.

AVANTASIA - Geoff Tate on new album!
 
In January, AVANTASIA's 7th studio album Ghostlights will be released via Nuclear Blast. After Jorn Lande, another guest star can be announced: OPERATION MINDCRIME vocalist Geoff Tate!

Tobias comments:
"I am proud to announce a very special guest today: Mr. Geoff Tate! I have been fortunate enough to meet many amazing classic metal vocalists. Whenever we've talked about our influence as vocalists the name Geoff Tate was brought up. Throughout his incredible career of more than 30 years Geoff has constantly explored new territory as an artist and vocalist, while he has always managed to maintain this distinctive signature vocal sound that makes him stand out. His contribution sounds nothing but amazing, and you will immediately know why the man had such a huge impact on vocalists and fans around the globe! Enchanting, unique, amazing, progressive in the purest sense of the word! Thank you for joing the AVANTASIA family, Geoff Tate!"
