After much consideration we have decided to make these upcoming Abigail Williams shows our last US tour. This was a very hard decision to make but feels absolutely necessary at this point. I've had the best times of my life with this band and learned so much about what I want to do with music as well as what I don't like about the industry etc and we honestly feel like its best to put the band to rest after making what we feel to be our very best album. Im honestly just feeling satisfied with everything we have done as Abigail Williams and I feel ready to put it to rest. We want everyone to know this has nothing to do with differences inside the band as we are still very much a family and these are still the same people I want to make music with now and in the future.

We think that 2012 is the perfect year for new beginnings and we definitely plan to put music out later this year in the form of a new band(s). It would be easy to give people the names to our new projects here but rather than capitalize off this announcement we would rather word get out naturally starting with our friends when the time is right. We want to thank our friends and fans who have supported us through the good and bad times over the years, we know its been a very bumpy road at times. We are still very dedicated to making music and this change will actually allow us to do more of what we want to do and be more productive. We hope to see everyone on the road for this tour that we booked DIY for the most part by ourselves. The dates are below even though some of them are still waiting to be confirmed. Also we want to emphasize that this is our last US tour and that we are open to touring overseas if the right tour comes up.

Looks like being a "studio only" band is the next bandwagon they're jumping on. For a band that's broken up and changed their style so many times in five years I take anything they say with a grain of salt.

They aren't becoming studio only, Ken's starting new projects. I've heard some demos and it's the best stuff he's done so far.

Yep, doesn't sound studio only. From this statement, they're done after this tour.

For awhile they were on every metal tour that hit the northeast.

Yeah when I wasn't here haha. It seemed like when I was in Chicago, they'd always go to Joliet, and now they're completely skipping the northeast. Still, I've had my fair share of chances so I can't really complain.

Ken needs a bassist for the tour:

A message to my friends that play guitar/bass and can drop everything to go on a tour asap! Abigail Williams needs a bass player for our final tour. The material is not super hard and most of the songs are long and slow(ish). I consider the tone and personality the more important factor over how many fingers you can tap with or how many strings you play etc... We have a bass and can get somewhat of a bass rig together if you don't have one. I just require a particular fuzz pedal and reverb for the tone which you might have to buy if you don't have. We also think its important to have a cohesive look on stage. The tour runs from july 26th-sept 19th. We are chill dudes and super easy to get along with. There is NO pay but we will pay for all food and drinks etc and stuff like that, we never go hungry. Its a DIY tour so there are some days off and we plan to just hang out and have a good time all over the country for this final tour. If you can learn an entire set BY EAR for the most part and think you can honestly pull all this off then hit me up. Male of female, does not matter to us.

For what it's worth, I just noticed the closest date to me was over two weeks ago. I know how you feel, man.

Looks like the St. Paul show never got booked. :(

Now I feel even more fortunate to have interviewed them back in February. Im glad that I did get to see them twice.
