Enabler Finishing Work On Album, Announces New Tour Dates

After several months off the grid, the metallic punk radicals in Enabler now pledge full-on annihilation in 2014, today announcing a revamped lineup, a plethora of upcoming live actions, and the completion of a second LP.

Enabler today officially confirms Ryan Steigerwald as the band's full-time drummer. Steigerwald previously hails from the Chicago band, The Ox King, in addition to having filled-in as Ringworm's drummer for the past nine years, and now takes the throne as Enabler's first full-time skinsmasher since the departure of Fall Out Boy's Andy Hurley in 2012.

Having already performed locally with the stripped-down new lineup -- rounded out by bassist/vocalist Amanda Daniels and founding vocalist/guitarist Jeff Lohrber -- Enabler has also been secretly recording new material over the past few months, and just this week put the finishing touches on a second LP, which will see release later this year.

The band will tour harder than ever in 2014, with the first major trek of the year now confirmed to embark on April 10th as the trio forges across the country on the way to rip shit up at the sixteenth annual New England Metal & Hardcore Festival in Worcester, Massachusetts on April 17th.

Subsequent to the tour, Enalber is already confirmed to perform at Pouzza Fest in Montreal this May, followed directly by their first time invading Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore, and No Tomorrow Fest in Appleton, Wisconsin. Catch the band live:
