ABBATH, now consisting of frontman Abbath (vocals/ guitar), King on bass, and new drummer Creature, are announcing a change of their London show date to coincide with the planned album release early next year.
The band states the following: “ABBATH is continuing to move from strength to strength and has finished the writing process for the band’s debut album. Having signed to Season of Mist earlier this year, we can now announce that we will unleash the record in January 2016.
“With every great release, there is a party to go with it – and this album is no exception. As such, the London show that was scheduled for September is now moving to Saturday 23rd of January 2016. All tickets remain valid. PRIMORDIAL and CONAN will still be coming along for the ride, alongside Metal Hammer UK DJ’s, and more.
“See you down the front!”
