Bergen, 25th of November 2019,
Throughout life you’re dealt different decks of cards. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to live my dream, which is writing music, putting out records and touring the world, playing to fans all over the globe. For the most part it has been a tremendous ride, but there’s also been moments where things have gone wrong. Most notably during the recent tour of South America, where we had to cancel shows in Argentina and Brazil.
It’s no secret that I’ve been battling addiction. I have now come to realize that it’s time to pick a fight with this demon. I’ve committed myself to a rehab program that’s going to help me get clean once and for all. I feel more motivated and determined than ever to win this battle.
When tours like this get announced I cannot for the life of me fathom why the Boontown Rats did not like Mondays (or Garfield for that matter) but I digress. The first news about this 2020 run of dates came care of the masters in media hype over at Season Of Mist Records so check it out down below along with some additional Abbath news. Let’s go.
The Press Release:
Norwegian black ‘n’ roll titans ABBATH will be returning to North America in 2020 as part of the Decibel Magazine tour along with MAYHEM. The dates will also include an appearance at Decibel Magazine Metal and Beer Festival in Philadelphia, PA on April 3. The tour will kick off on March 13 in Denver, CO and will conclude on April 10 in Chicago, IL. The full itinerary can be found below.

The album is due on July the 5th and the Beyond the Gates audience will be treated to a spectacular and exclusive homecoming show on the final day of the festival.
We are also pleased to announce the addition of German/Turkish black metal outfit Imha Tarikat. If you haven’t checked out their debut album “Kara Ihlas” yet, please do. Haunting and atmospheric black metal doesn’t get any better than this. Imha Tarikat will join Ritual Death and Watain for the very special Wednesday show taking place at Hulen.
