The band began in 2005 when Takanori Nishikawa, known for his pop music as [[IAmTheBand T.M.Revolution]], decided to try his hand at rock music, alongside guitarist [[OnlyOneName Sunao]] and Hiroshi Shibasaki. They continued to discuss forming a band until an offer came to record a song for manga series {{Nana}}. The three presented a demo to producer Toshiyuki Kishi who became the fourth member of the band

But the band is [[DoubleMeaningTitle also named after]] frontman Takanori Nishikawa's ([[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer and this is completely true]]) love of the automobile's "'''A'''nti-lock '''b'''raking '''s'''ystem" and due to the acronym A.B.S sounding similar to the Tokyo district "Ebisu".
