ABSU today announces details on their upcoming tour, titled North American Connexus Conjuration. The 26-city tour will see the band perform two full sets with music spanning their 20-year recording career. It is the first full tour by the Texas-based mythological occult trio since the release of Abzu, the second of a planned trilogy of recordings.

Vocalist/drummer Proscriptor shares, “Since the release of our latest recording, Abzu, the response has been extremely vehement and now is the perfect moment to commemorate the album’s essence throughout North America. We purposely waited until the timing was ideal to embark on this journey, as we shall contaminate the communities with our craft of Mythological Occult Metal. We’re attempting to divide the concerts into two sections: the first act will showcase songs spanning from our entire discography, as the second act will focus on Phase Two from the album Tara: The Cythrául Klan’s Scrutiny. For the past couple of years, many of ABSU’s followers have requested specified songs from this chapter of Tara, so it is our aspiration to give the people what they want.”

Abzu, the band’s seventh studio album, was released October 2010. The album was mixed by J.T. Longoria (King Diamond/Solitude Aeternus) and features original works by Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak (Watain, Behemoth, Destroyer 666, Vader). Proscriptor commented, "With this record, we are appending dirtier elements of psychedelia and fusion. Lyrically, it descends deeper into Enki's lower world as well the Enochian Magic(k) System." He added, "This album is not a 'natural progression' from previous releases, but a feat of metaphysical conquest and murkiness."

ABSU came to prominence with the release of their 1993 debut, Barathrum: V.I.T.R.I.O.L. Each album saw continual expansion of the band’s now highly regarded artistic vision and international fanbase. It was with 2001’s Tara that the band truly arrived. The album reached top lists of countless magazines worldwide. Years, however, would pass before any new material would be recorded. In late 2007, the band finally announced their re-awakening. Now teamed with London-based Candlelight Records, the band would take nearly sixteen months writing/recording their sixth album. Absu, featuring contributions from members of King Diamond, Mayhem, Melechesh, Firstborn and Enthroned, was released early 2009.

Dickens Pub? Where the fuck is that in Edmonton Laughing

Dick In's pub? Sure that is the place they want to play at? Wink




Edit... doing the Google look, I think there may be a mistake there, Dickens Pub by all appearance's seems to be a Calgary location, not Edmonton.

Milcreek Tavern? Really? At least it's close to me. Would much rather see them in a place with a legit stage and sound system. If they're going West Philly DIY, they might as well have played a warehouse.

On the "Absu" tour they just had CDs and tees, can't remember specifics though.

It will be interesting to see them as a three piece.

Yeah, I believe when I saw them in 200...8? they only had CDs and shirts. Looking forward to this.

I saw them last February and I also only remember CDs and shirts, although there might have been patches available as well. No LPs, though. It was pretty dark by the merch table so it was tough to get a good look.

ETA: I'll definitely be at one of the NYC shows. Not sure which one yet, though.

ETA2: Holy shit. A show in Soda Springs, CA? Man, with that and the BM festival last year in Cisco Grove (or wherever the hell it was)...I never expected my family's goddamned cabin to be at ground zero of Northern CA kvlting. Confused

ETA3: Upon further inspection, it's at the same place as that BM festival. Technically in Cisco Grove. I cannot imagine having an outdoor festival there in April.

I'm pretty sure you're right. Regardless, living in Red Deer, it's pretty much the same distance. Not too worried about it. Razz

Never heard of the Vex in L.A. Regardless, $16 for a show... that's pretty cheap for a killer band. Esp playing two sets... stoked for this show!

Looks like I'm skipping out on Immolation, Napalm, and CC for this. I think he said something to the extent of recording one or two more albums and hanging it all out to dry, and this might be my only chance to see them in Tempe.

EDIT: TWO SETS
