Abney Park began around 1997, but their popularity exploded with the onset of internet music, with much success through MP3.com in the early 2000’s. The band was a regular chart topper, often holding the number 1 – 5 positions in Goth and Darkwave, and Industrial Dance music charts. In 2005 the band morphed from a more Darkwave/Industrial inspired act to a Steampunk inspired act.
Abney Park’s music has been featured on a number of movie soundtracks, including “Insomnis Amour”, “Goth”, and “Lord of the Vampires”. The band’s music has also been featured in many compilation CD’s, including Cleopatra Records “The Unquiet Grave” vol. III, “Annihilation and Seduction”, “Eighteen” and many more.
Abney Park has performed all over the North America, appearing in Portland, Chicago, Las Vegas, Reno, Hollywood, and countless shows in their home base of Seattle. Their fans form a near-cult following, and have been known to travel from as far as New Zealand and Mexico City just to see them perform.
