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. "
