    Due to popular(?) demand, we've done ONE LAST pressing of Empress/Abscess on CD. Thank you all so much for the support, the fact that we've sold out of two pressings is kind of incredible!

    EDIT: We were robbed of our remaining CDs in Brooklyn on Feb 22nd, 2017 and we have obviously done another pressing to fulfill existing orders placed while we were on tour, as well as additional copies to make up for what we lost. Hooray! CDs are in stock again.

    Empress/Abscess' is the 31-minute debut full-length from Immortal Bird. Recorded by Pete Grossmann at Bricktop Recording in Chicago, IL and mixed/mastered by Colin Marston at The Thousand Caves in Queens, NY. Artwork by Kikyz 1313, layout by Meg Dolan.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Empress/Abscess via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
    ships out within 5 days

Ignore all your instincts
Embrace utter hubris
I can’t control this situation
Add it to the list of things you despise
Including my inability to empathize

It seems that we’ve reached an impasse
A rock and a hard place
I’ll choose the latter
I was born there

Arterial brillance
Splurting like liquid gold

We are intertwined
Like a vital artery
Wrapped around a tumor

Shuddering wet
In darkened soil

With all these questions you’ve been posing
My response is cold silence
Stop complaining
Sick decline


from Empress​/​Abscess, released July 14, 2015
