They were cool. Wasn't down with the spitting and bottle throwing though.

No shit....and who the fuck is, really?  Cheers to Telephone Explosion for having us out, and Duffy's Tavern who had put up with us that night! Aside from getting piss soaked in the pouring rain, being ID'd at the bar by the 12 year old bartender, Duffy's lacking the apparent technology to play our intro (an aux connector for an ipod), and a slight gear mishap, it was a great fucking show. Also, I'm not really sure who is responsible for the above photo, it's fucking great too, so thanks to them!

There is video footage from the show lurking around somewhere....we will most likely post it.

Lastly, we have a band camp page: Abyss Bandcamp

Toronto NO Thaw Festival May 3rd

Tomorrow is the opening day of the 2nd annual Toronto (NO) Thaw festival - a three day festival that showcases a variety of different local bands, that might not ordinarily play together, and puts them on one bill - an assertive attempt at breaking up the homogeneity that can be Toronto music scene.  
 Abyss will be on around 11:30pm. There are 5 bands on this bill, but most, to my knowledge, have extremely short sets (ours included).  Also, this is slighted to have a large turnout, so it is suggested that you arrive sooner than later if you wish to savor our Obscene Requiem.

In other news, we are working towards booking a Montreal gig in July of 2012. We will keep you posted.
