The Black Dahlia Murder’s Officially Announce New Album, Abysmal
Last month, producer Mark Lewis let the cat out of the bag that The Black Dahlia Murder’s new album was complete; now that album has been officially announced. It’s called Abysmal, which is a ballsy fucking title, because if it stinks, the band has just teed up the headlines for every snobby blogger this side of… well… us. I mean, I don’t think the album will stink because BDM have never let us down before, I’m just saying, it takes confidence to call your album Abysmal.
Metal Blade will release Abysmal on September 18. Pre-orders will go live on June 24, which I assume will be the date we get to hear the first single, too.
Meanwhile, vocalist Trevor Strnad has started writing a new column for our buds at Metal Injection! It’s called “The Obituarist” (LOL), and it “will detail Strnad’s picks from what he considers to be the best and brightest of the death metal underground.” Read the inaugural entry here.
And on top of all of that, the band has a bunch of tour dates coming up in Australia and Europe. Those dates are below!
