Got together to run through the set and some of the new album this week, the first time we've all been able to get together since September 2018. Figured we could all show our smiling faces again. Here's some updates for those who have been asking us what's going on behind the scenes; 6 of 9 tracks for the album have been fully recorded and are entering mixing. The 3 remaining tracks we will be finishing up over the next couple months. Our friend Erik Tordsson will be producing this album, he most recently mixed our track "Now Enters Dusk" on Gathering II. We will continue to post some glimpses into recording and have a music video finished for one of the songs already. We plan to release a live playthrough of a song from All Paths Lead to Death in the future that we recorded this week as well. Our next show is in Green Bay, WI on August 30th at SV2. After the album is completed we will be touring to support the album, within the US and Canada (sorry Europe) Thanks for your support and patience! We know it's been 4 years since Ascension and we hope the singles, EP and split have helped tied you over. The Artisan Era , Los Cabos Drumsticks , Powered by OMEGA , Emperor Cabinets 📷 - Josh Fields
-Friends in the Midwest US- About a month ago we decided to drop the Unholy Hell show in Minneapolis at the Amsterdam due to behavior from the promoter that we do not wish to condone. We contacted them but they did not respond to this message. Those that know us personally have probably had a discussion or two regarding the matter. We do not take this lightly and do not like to cancel shows. Every show we play and tour we do takes a considerable amount of work on our part due to the logistics of having significant mileage between band members locations. However, this was not our issue. The promoter and booking company who scheduled this show have shown their behavior, which is detrimental not only to our music scene, but to everyone touring through Minnesota and Wisconsin. We will be playing later this year around the area closer to when we have more news on the full length. Thanks for your time. Amiensus-
2 years ago today, we made a statement. If you've had the chance to see us play some of these songs on tour over the last 2 years, you've seen us play the only album we ever wrote and intended to play live (to this point). For the next few weeks we'll leave this as a free download. Digipaks are just 6.66$ and only 8 remain, and then are probably gone forever. Cheers, friends Amiensus
The gorgeous new reprint of our first album Restoration is now IN and we will begin shipping this week. Here it is compared to the original print. Keep in mind, this one has a few special differences including the remaster of the tracks. Grab one while they last! -------> https://amiensus.bandcamp.com/album/restoration
Amiensus and Oak Pantheon are Extremely happy to announce today that Gathering and Gathering II have been made into a very limited (100 copies) vinyl press by Casus Belli Musica and Beverina Productions! They will begin shipping 5/1/19, and are available on the labels Bandcamp! Grab one before they're gone! --------> https://casusbellimusica.bandcamp.com/album/gathering-i-ii-lp-2019
It's been just over 6 years, so we're absolutely delighted to announce a partnership with Casus Belli Musica and Beverina Productions for the re-release of our first LP, "Restoration", which has been remastered by Nick Stanger of Ashbringer. We will launch pre-orders for these on our bandcamp, which will be released on May 1st, 2019. As always, we will ship internationally, though we encourage our EU fans to order from the label if worried about shipping as the cost will be much lower than ours. We will also be announcing a Vinyl of 2 albums shortly with these two... Thanks for your patience in waiting for us to finally get these redone and restocked! https://amiensus.bandcamp.com/album/restoration

GATHERING II - OUT NOW! https://amiensus.bandcamp.com/album/gathering-ii
Gathering II Five years to the date since Gathering - 11/05/2013 We hope you enjoy this as much as we did making it- we brought back some old teammates and collaborated with Oak Pantheon for the first time (we should definitely do it again) so this one will surely remain special to us for a long time. Thanks NO CLEAN SINGING for the premiere again!
Hey guys, As promised, the Bandcamp Merch store is updated, with 2 new items as well (new shirt and koozie's available). The last day of the tour, while in British Columbia, we blew a spark plug that stripped the head. It ended up costing us over a grand USD and got us stuck for a couple days in the beautiful city of Kelowna. As we have the new album to finish for you guys, we were considerably set back and put in debt due to this. Hopefully there is something available in the merch store for you, as we will not ask for handouts in this situation. We will continue to put out audio and video from tour as we work on the album going forward as well, since we played 2 new songs for the whole trip!
As promised, here's the first peek into one of our performances from the Isolation and Absolution Tour. Check out Chris on the drum cam on a brand new unreleased song we played in Sante Fe, NM! Big thanks to Los Cabos Drumsticks The Artisan Era Powered by OMEGA................ Oak Pantheon........................
The Isolation and Absolution tour wrapped up with a bang last night in Kelowna, British Columbia. This blurry photo from 2am sums up our relationship with Ashbringer perfectly. We had a killer tour that went from 105°f to 40°f. We are currently working on getting our bus fixed up in Canada at the moment, but will update the Bandcamp when we return home. There are so many people to thank for hanging out, letting us crash at their place, or just getting to meet and talk to for the first time after years of online friendship. Special thanks to the bands that joined us for multiple dates of the tour- Aprilmist, ATRIARCH, and Apollyon, who crushed it every time and made us bring our A Game.. and our sponsors and labels The Artisan Era, Prosthetic Records, Los Cabos Drumsticks, and Powered by OMEGA. Audio and video of the tour to come for those who missed out!
