abingdon boys school is named after the famous all boys school in England, Abingdon School which the members of famous band Radiohead attended. It was formed in 2005 by Nishikawa out of several of the support members of his T.M.Revolution project, specifically SUNAO and Shibasaki Hiroshi.

After a gap of six months, the band followed this up with a second single "HOWLING", used as the first opening theme for the anime DARKER THAN BLACK -Kuro no Keiyakusha-.

The band's third single was quickly released afterwards, "Nephilim", which was featured as the opening theme for the PlayStation 3 game FolksSoul -Ushinawareta Denshou-.
