Thanks to everyone who has already purchased our new album from itunes, amazon, or cdbaby! If you haven’t yet, you can check out some samples on Reverbnation and then head over to your preferred digital download site to buy! Physical CD copies are coming soon.
(You might notice that the album cover has changed from the two-headed buffalo to a black-and-white octopus. Don’t let that confuse you — it’s the same album, just with a new cover. The physical copies will have the octo-cover. )
If you still need some convincing before you shell-out your $9.99, check out this great review from stylewylde.com:
A well-produced debut album that actually delivers raw energy is a rarity these days when overly auto-tuned acts are the norm; but San Francisco based Abatis does it with their blaring, raucous offering, Electric Dead. Far more organic that the synth-pop sound that has been ubiquitous in recent years, Electric Dead recalls a louder, rowdier time when bands like Nirvana, Sound Garden and Stone Temple Pilots ruled the airways. Guitars made thick with reverb aided by a pounding beat that doesn’t let up from the opening chords of “Horsefly” to the closing notes of “Electric Dead” the album satisfies the hungry-for-a-change listener with a big juicy sound. An impressive start for the band, whom have been together for just over a year, Electric Dead speaks to a bright future for these Bay Area rockers.
Abatis is: Stuart Maaslehbrown on Bass/vox, Sean Wagner on Guitar/vox and Ben Lauffer on Drums, their debut album Electric Dead is available via itunes.
