Becoming is the third album by American black metal band Abigail Williams. It was released on January 24, 2012 via Candlelight Records. The record was met with highly positive critics. It was thought to be the last album of the band, as they announced disbandment, however, later on, it was confirmed that Abigail Williams are getting together again for at least an album and a tour.
Following a warm-up headlining gig in Trenton, New Jersey, Abigail Williams will be providing support for Norwegian black metal band Mayhem as their massive thirty-six date North American tour goes underway in Baltimore. Hate and Keep of Kalessin will both provide support for the entire trek as well, and Abigail Williams' labelmates Woe will also perform in eight cities of the tour.
Following the tour with Mayhem, Abigail Williams continued touring through the New Year in support of Becoming, with full stateside tours supporting Dark Funeral and then Deicide already confirmed for the first quarter of 2012, and much more in the planning stages for the months ahead.
