    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.

What I wouldn’t give to tread over Apollonian lines
Leave them whispers of dust amidst Dionysian laughter
Your discomfort alone would make it so worthwhile
As you petition blindly to a sickened choir
I will fashion the blade to help you spite your face

You are entirely misguided
You are so goddamn malignant
What is it that you want?
I wish to end your sad whimpering with a bang

You are an altogether new kind of trigger warning
I wouldn’t cast on anyone
You invented the art of jumping the gun

A mass of pleading fat and bone
Lacking muscles and a spine
You must have consumed your twin in the womb
Didn’t you?
How impressive.


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