Official press release: Right on time with their North American tour as special guests of grind legends Napalm Death, Belgian death metallers Aborted announce a brutal treat for those seeking out a new batch of sickening tunes. On April 17th, 2020, Aborted will release the brand-new three-track EP, La Grande Mascarade, containing the studio recordings "Gloom and the Art of Tribulation," "Serpent of Depravity," and "Funereal Malediction." The band comments: "Not only are we coming with this ultimate badass tour with Napalm Death, but as 2020 marks 25 years of us making noise, we figured we should take advantage of that fact and serve you guys up some tasty treats in the form of the EP 'La Grande Mascarade'! If you want to hear us go beyond the limits of what we have done so far, stay tuned for the first single soon! Our US pre-order featuring the import digipak is already up at Indiemerch and limited to only 200 units! For the Europeans out there; Impericon will have the same pre-order in a few days!"
