ABSU Tour Update

US black metal legends ABSU will tour the US for the first time in nearly 8 years on Candlelight Records’ third North American label package tour. Set to kick off on June 6, CIII will feature ABSU, with support from French black metal troupe GLORIOR BELLI, Los Angeles-based SOTHIS and the recent addition of Pennsylvania thrashers RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER. The tour will visit 22 cities throughout the US and Canada beginning in San Marcos, California and wrapping up in Dallas, Texas on June 29.

CIII follows the success of Candlelight’s previous label tours — the first in 2005 featuring ENTOMBED, CROWBAR, PRO-PAIN and THE MIGHTY NIMBUS, and second in 2007 featuring ENSLAVED, DARK FUNERAL and then-newcomers ABIGAIL WILLIAMS.

The label, maintaining offices in Philadelphia and London, continues to grow since launching American operations in 2001. Candlelight is distributed throughout the US exclusively via Caroline Distribution, EMI Music for Canada and Plastichead Music for the rest of the world.
