“I’m very happy to present a new ABYSMAL DAWN track after almost three years of waiting,” commented vocalist/guitarist Charles Elliott. “It’s a heavy one, so get ready to bang your fucking head with the song on repeat until your neck won’t move anymore!!!”

“Lyrically this one is about losing your idealism and becoming a cold, unfeeling shell of a human being, in order to survive our modern society. An inanimate object if you will; one without hope that has cut themselves off from emotion. Our experiences in this life can carve us into stone, but they can also desensitize us in the process. In short, this might be the most depressing song you ever wanted to circle pit too.”

“We hope you enjoy ‘Inanimate’ and that you catch us on our tour with Deicide this fall. We’ll also be playing a few headlining shows that we hope you’ll cause chaos at as well. See you soon and cheers!”

In support of Obsolescence,ABYSMAL DAWN will be hitting the road with a handful of headline dates before joining up with Deicide.  The headline shows start September 30th in Riverside, CA and go through October 5th in Nashville, TN.   The tour with Deicide kicks off October 7thin West Springfield, VA and will run through October 28th in Dallas, TX.

The band has also announced a special listening party on September 28th at The Complex in Glendale, CA.  This will be your chance to Obsolescene in its entirety before anyone else.  There will also be raffles and giveaways as well as DJ sets from members of ABYSMAL DAWN.  More info on the event is available at: https://www.facebook.com/events/679228898838628.
