    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.

Mistakes I’ve made
Traced in blood through fresh snow
Carving paths of decay
Senseless repetition

If these myopic eyes won’t cease their endless wandering
Then I will pluck them out
Feast on the spoils of treachery

My victimless crimes
For all our heroes were wrong

My lack of impulse control and wealth of festering need
Had left us chained to each other
Dashed on the rocks
Disgraced by the sea

All of our heroes were wrong
Face me

I’ve wasted years with invertebrates
Railed against reason
Akratic atrophy

The idea of redemption is insulting
But you know that


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