Chicago, Illinois gothic/folk metallers URN are working on their new album, “A Hard Winter’s Journey”, at Bombshelter Studios in Chicago with producer Dan Precision (RISE AGAINST, NAKED RAYGUN) and at Studio 101 in Melbourne, Florida with Dominic St. Charles (ELECTRIC HELLFIRE CLUB). The band is also in talks with Brian Ferraro of Moondog Entertainment to shoot a video for their upcoming single, “Black Widow”, in late summer/early fall.
“A Hard Winter’s Journey” marks the recording debut of URN‘s new composer/keyboardist Drake Mefessta (DIAMORTE, EARTHEN).
URN has announced more than half a dozen tour dates kicking off at the end of May in Texas followed quickly by the band’s first trip across the Mexican border. After this initial run of dates, the band will return to the road at the end of July for a tour of the Midwestern United States. The band plans on playing a mix of songs both new and old, including some early versions of songs off the upcoming CD.
