ABIGAIL WILLIAMS Complete New Album- North American Tour Begins Tomorrow

American black metal outfit ABIGAIL WILLIAMS are in the final stages of mixing for their anticipated full-length album right now. The title of the forthcoming opus is now confirmed as Becoming, confirmed by Candlelight Records for release in North America on January 24, 2012, marking ABIGAIL WILLIAMS’ third full-length release for the label.

Becoming was recorded in various warehouses throughout Los Angeles with frontman Ken Sorceron handling the mixing, mastering, production and engineering duties for the entire album. The final track listing, album art and more will be unleashed in the weeks ahead as the record nears release.

Following a warm-up headlining gig tonight in Trenton, New Jersey, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS will be providing support for Norway’s black metal legends Mayhem as their massive thirty-six date North American tour gets underway this Wednesday in Baltimore. Hate and Keep Of Kalessin will both provide support for the entire trek as well, and ABIGAIL WILLIAMS’ labelmates Woe will also perform in eight cities of the tour.

Following the tour with Mayhem, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS will continue touring through the new year in support of Becoming, with full stateside tours supporting Dark Funeral and then Deicide already confirmed for the first quarter of 2012, and much more in the planning stages for the months ahead.
