Denver sludge/post-hardcore hybrids, Abrams, have announced the release of their sophomore full-length record, and follow-up to 2015’s Lust.Love.Loss. The new record will be titled Mourning and will be released on June 9 via Sailor Records. The record was was recorded by Andy Patterson (SubRosa, Cult Leader) and Dave Otero (Cobalt, Cattle Decapitation), and was mixed and mastered by Otero. Bassist Taylor Iversen said the following of the album:
“The concept we put forth with this album is one of duality. Morning and mourning. The songs represent to us a realization that all good things come with eventual bad things. There’s that morning where the sun is bright and the birds are chirping and everything seems possible. At the end of the day, it wasn’t what you hoped it would be. Every day you wake up and hope, and every night you go to sleep and mourn.”
