Abigail Williams will headline a string of West Coast dates in the coming week to celebrate the completion of the band's second full-length album. The shows will follow the band’s first Australian dates, supporting North Carolina’s Nile. Abigail Williams recently completed work on the still untitled second album.

Recorded at Conquistador Studios in Cleveland, Ohio, eight new songs are planned for album, which is currently planned for release on September 14th, 2010. Vocalist/guitarist Ken Sorceron, with engineer Cole Martinez, commanded the audio takes while Peter Tagtgren (Dimmu Borgir, Immortal, Celtic Frost) mixed the tracks. The record was mastered at Black Lounge Studios in Sweden.

Sorceron recently commented, “There is a lot less keyboards on the new songs. They are far more guitar-driven and have a bit more of a traditional sound in some ways but still very Abigail Williams sounding. We let ourselves have much more room with writing this album, kind of a more open, free environment than any we have employed before. The studio experience this time round was very natural to us. We recorded everything with much more ease and I think it has helped in capturing a very honest vibe.”

Abigail Williams has the following upcoming headlining shows:

6/01/2010 The Rock - Tucson, AZ
6/02/2010 UB’s Bar - Mesa, AZ
6/03/2010 Whiskey A Go-Go - West Hollywood, CA
6/04/2010 The Crossing - Palmdale, CA
6/05/2010 Stramler Park - Bakersfield, CA
6/06/2010 Chain Reaction - Anaheim, CA

Eh, what are you going on about QuickSilver? The last update on the Abigail Williams MySpace page was on April (not May) 22nd, and it wasn't about headlining shows at all. This news was posted when it came to us from the band.
