Tampa, Florida-based melodic thrash metal band THE ABSENCE — which recently announced the addition of drummer Justin Reynolds to the group's ranks — has scheduled the following dates:

Apr. 03 - The AKA lounge - Orlando, Florida
Apr. 04 - Bourbon Street - New Port Richey, Florida
Apr. 05 - Churchill's - Miami, Florida

THE ABSENCE's cover of TESTAMENT's "Into the Pit" has been posted on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the group's sophomore CD, "Riders of the Plague", which was released on August 7, 2007 via Metal Blade Records. The album was recorded at Mana Studios in Florida with Swedish producer Jonas Kjellgren (SCAR SYMMETRY, CARNAL FORGE). Mixing duties were handled by Jonas at his Black Lounge studios in Avesta, Sweden. The CD features guest appearances by guitarists James Murphy (DEATH, TESTAMENT), Jonas Kjellgren, Per Nilsson (SCAR SYMMETRY) and Santiago Dobles (AGHORA) as well as guest vocals by Jonas Granvik (WITHOUT GRIEF, EDGE OF SANITY).

THE ABSENCE guitarist Peter Joseph has begun pre-production on his debut solo release, due out summer 2008. The album will be tracked at various studios in Florida and mixed at Black Lounge (Sweden) by Jonas Kjellgren (CARNAL FORGE, SCAR SYMMETRY). Studio reports and video diaries will be posted at this location.
