Phoenix-based extreme metal band ABIGAIL WILLIAMS is in need of a guitar player for its upcoming U.S. tour with DARK FUNERAL and ENSLAVED. Tryout requests will be taken via e-mail at [email protected] Listen to the songs on the group's MySpace page and be sure you're skillful enough before trying out. Contact the band immediately if interested and read the following:

You must be:

* Able to learn five songs' worth of material between now and January 3
* Available January 3 - February 10 (roughly)

As previously reported, Candlelight Records has set a January 23 North American release date for ABIGAIL WILLIAMS' "Legend". The limited-edition five-song EP is the territory's formal introduction to the Phoenix-based extreme metal band and coincides with the band's first national American tour; the band participating on Candlelight's upcoming (and highly anticipated) label tour featuring co-headliners DARK FUNERAL and ENSLAVED.

Amassing an impressive quarter million hits to their MySpace page (this in under six months!), ABIGIAL WILLIAMS defy classification by taking the groove and melody of Gothenburg-styled death metal, face-smashing breakdowns of the hardcore scene and top it with the bombastic and epic-flavored frostbite of black metal's evilest hordes. The result is a multi-faceted and unforgettable hybrid that already has genre aficionados taking an immediate interest.

ABIGAIL WILLIAMS' full length debut is planned for an early spring 2007 release. Additional touring plans will be announced in cooperation with the album's release date.

"Legend" track listing:

01. From a Buried Heart
02. Like Carrion Birds
03. The Conqueror Wyrm
04. Watchtower
05. Procession of the Aeons (exclusive demo)

"Candlelight II: Phoenix Rising" dates featuring ABIGAIL WILLIAMS with DARK FUNERAL and ENSLAVED are available at www.candlelightrecordsusa.com.
