ILL NINO has parted ways with Roadrunner Records less than a year after the release of its third album, "One Nation Underground". The band, who recently completed a number of U.S. and European dates with guitarist Diego Verduzco filling in for Jardel Paisante (who is said to be dealing with "personal family problems"), will make an appearance on on, a free Internet radio station, later in the month. On July 27 starting at 4:20 p.m. U.S. EST time, a couple of the ILL NINO boys are going to be on "The Urban Assault" show. They will be sitting in for the entire five-hour program. Fans are encouraged to call, IM, and e-mail the station with questions for the band. Anyone can listen free. All you have to do is visit and click on the "Tune In Live" link.

"The Urban Assault" show is co-hosted and co-created by Omar (a.k.a. Ohmz), who has been featured on all the ILL NINO records.

In other news, congratulations are in order for ILL NINO guitarist Ahrue Luster (ex-MACHINE HEAD) and wife Xylia, who welcomed a baby girl on July 14.
