Abigail Williams talk album and tour news

Abigail Williams talk about the their upcoming album and tour details.

Abigail Williams will headline a string of NA west coast dates in the coming week to celebrate the completion of their second full-length album. The shows follow the band’s first Australian dates, supporting North Carolina’s Nile. The shows are the first American performances of 2010 for the band.

Abigail Williams have completed work on their still untitled second album. Recorded at Conquistador Studios in Cleveland, Ohio, eight new songs are planned for the band’s album currently planned for release on September 14. Vocalist/guitarist Ken Sorceron with engineer Cole Martinez commanded the audio takes while Peter Tagtgren (Dimmu Borgir, Immortal, Celtic Frost) mixed the tracks. The record was mastered at Black Lounge Studios in Sweden.

Sorceron recently commented, 'There is a lot less keyboards on the new songs.  They are far more guitar-driven and have a bit more of a traditional sound in some ways but still very Abigail Williams sounding.  We let ourselves have much more room with writing this album, kind of a more open, free environment than any we have employed before.  The studio experience this time round was very natural to us.  We recorded everything with much more ease and I think it has helped in capturing a very honest vibe.'
