August 3rd Announcement Speculation thread
« on: July 30, 2015, 07:58:37 PM »


Well, some of you may have already seen it..
King/Livia posted this on twitter.

I know that they are gonna reveal everything when it's time..but I thought would be cool to see what are your guessing about this.
What do you think is the "major news"?

I guess it is probably a world tour..or a new album. (If it's a world tour, I am gonna have a heart attack)

Anyway, really anxious to know what it is

I hope it means a new album myself. Enough touring already we need something new. It has been way too long due to his health issues unfortunately. But now he is back so time for some fresh and hopefully great new music.

Guesses?
Abigail tour would be sick but doubtful with the existing schedule.  I guess an old metalhead like me can dream!

Well, I hope it's a new album, but I don't really think it is (no reason in particular, I'm just skeptical lol)

A world tour would be nice though... But I wonder if the Abigail cover is some kind of hint? Maybe they're rereleasing it in some kind of special edition?

According to this recent Andy interview, it's not gonna be a new album. He hints at a dvd....

The text is French, but the original English video of the interview is at the bottom of the page.
As of October 2017, number of years I've been a coven member, waiting for the dvds: 12

If it is an Abigail tour, I wonder if it will include songs like Shrine, and if they would do some songs from Abby 2. That would be cool. I do remember them not being able to support an Abigail 2 tour, this would be a perfect opportunity!

Considering Abigail as an album is only 40 minutes in length, this makes sense. (not including Shrine). Abigail 2 is a bit longer, 53 minutes I think, so I don't think it would be that entire album, but an Abigail tour for both albums would be awesome. And I would also suspect that, given the awesome sound and stage production, the time is ripe for a professional DVD.

That is all speculation on my part.

It'll be a tour, the announcement is the day after the last date of Mayhem.

good point.  Specially for the abigail album cover on the post.

abigail + abigail II, would be great on the new stage, with a full theatrical show.


An abigail book or a movie would be awesome. but that's just a dream

I read a few random floating rumors that it might be a tour playing the full length Abigail album. No idea what it could be.

Do not get my hopes up that it will be a DVD. I already got excited about all those DVDs being put together that we were told about only to then be told they changed their minds :(

After the Massachusetts mayhem show, his Facebook update thanked everyone who attended and said p.s we will be back sooner than you think. Also I thought I read that they would of recorded new album if they didn't take the mayhem tour so I hope we get both!

A new worldwide tour would be awesome! Their last European tour didn't touch many countries! Also a tour supporting Abigail II would be great, since there weren't the chance before! Sure, that "we'll be back sooner than you think" gives cause for hope! ::)
A new album is not a news for making such suspence! We already knew they're working on a new album!
About the DVD I'm too skeptical! It would be a big surprise, but the way things are going, I made my peace with it! :(
If you want me to be 100% realistic... I think it's a new Abigail release featuring the old artwork they recently found!

Hope King plays the Palladium in Mass again if it is a tour, what an incredible vibe that place had with King Diamond.
