IMMORTAL BIRD will be joined by Colombian Necktie as well as Metal Blade recording artists Secrets Of The Sky on select dates. As a precursor to the tour, the band will make an appearance at Shadow Woods Metal Fest (Midnight, Occulation, Iron Man etc.) later this month.

Offers vocalist Rae Amitay of IMMORTAL BIRD's latest live adventure: "Our East Coast tour was our first run of dates since Empress/Abscess was released and we had a blast. Louisville Deathfest and Death To False Metal Fest were awesome and we can't wait to get out there again for Shadow Woods Metal Fest in September, as well as a more extensive West Coast tour in October. During the latter we'll be playing Southwest Terror Fest before we're joined for about a week by our pals in Secrets Of The Sky. We'll also be visiting several new cities for the first time. Lots to be stoked about!"

IMMORTAL BIRD continues to tour in support of their scalding Empress/Abscess full-length, released earlier this Summer via a collaborative effort with Broken Limbs Recordings (vinyl/cassette) and the band's own Manatee Rampage Recordings (CD/digital). Recorded by Pete Grossmann
(Weekend Nachos, Harms Way, Dead In The Dirt) at Bricktop Recording in Chicago, Illinois and mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Nader Sadek, Atheist, Origin etc.) at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves in Queens, New York, Empress/Abscess is a vexing sound excursion through the very bowels of human existence. Picking up where 2013's lauded Akrasia EP left off, the record delves deeper into an audio cesspool of desolation, wrath, and overall suffering and with its members having sharpened their skills both as individual musicians and as a functioning unit, the final outcome is nothing short of terrifying.
