ABAS is the experimental music project of Irish duo Patrick Blaney and Dara Tohill. The band have been labelled as progressive postrock that draws from their influences of 90's shoegaze posthardcore and Neoclassical.
Following the release of their debut EP in 2017 the band began were able to attract attention of the experimental music scene supporting genre-defining heavyweights Tera Melos and And So I Watch You From Afar. The band toured relentlessly across Europe from 2018-2019, often for months at a time, even once resulting in the hospitalization of a band member. The extensive tours included more high-profile shows including, an appearance at Bergmal Festival 2019 in Zürich, Post In Paris 2019 and Colossal in Copenhagen 2021. The 2020 bombastic self-titled, released with Moment of Collapse, draws from everything from emo, to math-rock, to hardcore punk, and even black metal and is now available on all streaming platforms.
Since then ABAS have been busy with a recent adoption from the Pelagic family and currently working away on their second album.
