ABSU today announce details on their upcoming tour, titled Merelogical Nihilism Connexus Tour: 2016. The 42-city tour will see the band perform a brand new set with music spanning their 25-year recording career. It is the first full, American tour by the Texas-based mythological occult trio since 2013 and will preceed the release of the band's new album, Apsu.
Vocalist/drummer Proscriptor shares, “Since the release of out latest recording, Abzu, the response was extremely vehement and now is the perfect moment to prepare the nation for our new offering, Apsu, which will be released later this year via Candlelight Records. We will be performing a few songs that have never been audibly displayed, in a live atmosphere, as well as one new song that will be featured on the impending opus.”

Proscriptor also adds, “The entire rhythm section for Apsu has been completed and upon our return, I will complete the drafting of the lyrical content, track the vocal lines and finalize the mixing/mastering process. Guest appearances for Apsu feature Rune Erikson/Blasphemer (Aura Noir) and Ross The Boss (ex-Manowar) both contributing solos.

Apsu, which is the Sumerian-Akkadian spelling of the band moniker is the third and final installment of a trilogy spawning from the last two recordings: Absu and Abzu. The band’s eighth studio album was recorded at three different facilities: GAB Recordings, (Irving, Texas) Nightsky Studios, (Waldorf, Maryland) Alchemy Music (Richardson, Texas) and will be mixed once again by J.T. Longoria at Nomad Recording Studio. (King Diamond/Solitude Aeternus)

Acclaimed Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak has not only illustrated separate covers for the CD and LP formats, but has formulated eight individual art pieces, which will aesthetically pertain to the album’s lyrical components.

Proscriptor commented, "Lyrically, this will definitely be my most scientific album to date. It not only descends deep into the hardships of spirits such as Qingu and Irra, but the Enochian Magic(k) System and the cause/effect of Hermetic Praxis.”

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 fan base. 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.

Confirmed dates for ABSU are:

That Equitant didn't post this means something ominous.

It's good he didn't otherwise we would've gotten three separate posts!

Bakersfield? Bypassing the bay area for the booming metal scene in the valley? Mkay. Wonder if I could book em in my back yard and get a better turnout.

I'll attend the Sac date I've been waiting for them to come around again. Caught em with Vektor last time around in SF and that was one rad show.

I'll either be at the Pittsburgh show or Columbus. I'm tired of this city so I'll probably go to Columbus.

True, but a headlining show would have been nice too and would have a good draw no matter what. but sure.. we're spoiled.
