Ever-evolving black metal purveyors Abigail Williams have announced new North American tour dates for May-June, and NO CLEAN SINGING is proud to sponsor this special run of new performances. Joining AW for this rampage will be two extreme black/death bands, Willowtip recording artists Lecherous Nocturne from South Carolina and Toronto-based Panzerfaust.
Long-time readers of our site will be quite familiar with Abigail Williams and Lecherous Nocturne because we’ve written about them repeatedly, and both bands put on killer live shows. Panzerfaust may be a new name around these parts, but they’re a band whose music is also well worth getting to know.
The tour is scheduled to begin on May 15 in Wisconsin and to conclude on June 14 in Illinois. Abigail Williams’ main man Sorceron told us he’s excited to be hitting the road again with the band’s long-time brothers in Lecherous Nocturne, “and getting out there to show people some new songs.”
Speaking of new songs, Sorceron plans to enter the studio in advance of this tour to record a new AW album that should see release by Candlelight Records this coming August or September, and this tour will give fans a chance to hear some of the new tracks live. (I had the chance to hear the band perform a couple of them in Seattle not long ago, and they’re outstanding.)
Joining Sorceron in the ranks of Abigail Williams for this tour will again be the veteran line-up of guitarist Jeff Wilson (Chrome Waves, Wolvhammer); bassist John Porada (Terminate), and drummer Charlie Fell (Lord Mantis).
Now here’s a bigger version of the tour flyer with all the dates and places that have been lined up so far (this is an updated schedule and is current as of April 25):
