ABBATH recently released a video of a live recording of a new track. The video for the new song, titled “Fenrir Hunts” is streaming now at Blabbermouth.com.
Regarding the video, the band states: “We have performed “Fenrir Hunts” live since our debut concert at Tuska Festival in Finland. This led to the decision to record a few live songs properly. With the aid of a camera team, we have recorded three tracks in a live setting at the beginning of September. Along with “Fenrir Hunts”, which you can see today, there will be two cover versions coming up soon. Now, here is “Fenrir Hunts”, the first glimpse from our upcoming debut album!”
To celebrate and commemorate the release of ABBATH’s forthcoming debut album, the band have scheduled their album launch show in London on January 23. The band comments: “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.”
The band also decently announced an Australian tour kicking off later this year on October 15. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
