As you know, last month we finished a European Tour, promoting our free single ‘Harsh Reality’ which is still available for free download at our website http://www.absolva.com
We’ve also been very busy touring with Blaze Bayley this year & we’re well on with the recording of a new Blaze album, to be followed by a lot of touring with Blaze across Europe & also in 2017 in the US & Canada, we’re very excited to say.
The immediate future needed consideration due to the overall workload & many of you know that our thoughts have been moving towards Absolva taking a full year break….
So, here it is…. a year break!? Absolva!? No! You’ve guessed it…. We’ve started writing & on 16th January we’ll begin recording the 4th Absolva studio album – yes, we’re restless, live for the fight & we never back down!
We’ve also started booking a European Tour for September-October & although that feels a long way off right now, it does mean a definite return to the live circuit for Absolva in 2017. After the incredible support & response we’ve received this year, we look forward to the new album & tour with real excitement.
Luke & myself have been writing separately & have in the past week or so hooked up to bring our ideas together & as a result from combined resources we have 16 demo songs to choose from. As a rough guide we see the new record as a mix of what we did with Anthems to the Dead & Never A Good Day To Die. We’ll get more news out to you as & when we can, including the expected pre-order details & release date for the new album. What we aim to deliver is something really special.
Thank you all for your awesome support during 2016 & we’re looking forward to seeing you again before too long, out on tour with Blaze & later in the year as Absolva.
