Abort is the second album from the Boston, MA alternative band Tribe. It is also their major label debut after being signed up by Warner Bros. Records. The album was released in August 27, 1991, (see, 1991 in music) a year after "Here at the Home".

The album is mostly re-recorded versions of tracks from "Here at the Home"; eight of the ten tracks from "Here at the Home" were re-recorded for "Abort" (the track "Pinwheels" was also re-recorded for "Abort" but in the end was never put on the album and instead, it was released as a b-side in the "Easter Dinner E.P."), with four brand new tracks.

Three singles were released from the album as EPs; "Easter Dinner", "Payphone", and "Joyride (I Saw the Film)", the latter of which also spawned the band's first ever music video.[1]
