Abandon “Vigilance” released today

The 2nd album by Abandon is released today. “Vigilance” features 9 new songs, including the single “Fear of the Future”.

“Vigilance” is available now on all major digital platforms (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play etc). Also available on digital and CD on Bandcamp, in 6 panel cardboard sleeve with artwork by Umair Chaudhry.

Some words from a recent review of the album:

“At sixty-seven minutes, Vigilance is not a short album, and yet you don’t have to be afraid of Abandon running out of ideas, as the second half is in my opinion even more striking that the first one. The seven-minute-long Our Roots Know is my favourite track. The broad synth part that is running through the song should warm your heart, and the melodic structure feels like from a different dimension.”

“If you need reference points, think of Justin Broadrick’s Jesu teaming up with Slowdive, offering over an hour of well-crafted shoegaze with some hints of sad core and post metal.”

Pre-orders for Abandon “Vigilance” album available now

Post-rock / slowcore / shoegaze band Abandon is releasing it’s second album on the 9th of December 2019.

The album features 9 new songs, including the recently released single “Fear of the Future”.

“Vigilance” follows in the tradition of it’s 2014 single release “Nails”, with more organic and progressive song structures, incorporating dynamic shifts and contemplative lyrics.

Abandon was started in 2005 by Umair (Xmas Lights, Gift of Blindness, Futureproof). Described as dense layers of guitars sprawl and sparkle like dying stars over a bare and shifting landscape of slowcore, post-rock and shoegaze, worded by the highly personal lyrics of Umair.

For fans of Red House Painters, Swans, Cocteau Twins, Jesu, Slowdive and Red Sparowes

It will be available on CD and Digital from Blindsight Records’ Bandcamp page, or from all major digital distributors.

Pre-orders are available now at
