Chicago's ION VEIN has issued the following update:"We are very pleased to announce the addition of vocalist Allen James to the band! Allen brings a wealth of stage and studio experience to the band as well as a ton of energy and we’re extremely excited to have him onboard! "We started working together back in August last year and were finally able to get in the studio with [producer] Neil [Kernon; NILE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, NEVERMORE, DEICIDE] in December/January to get vocals down for four tracks to shop. Rather than bore you with a bunch of hype, we'll just let the music do the talking… Check out a couple rough mixes here and we'll see you onstage soon!" As previously reported, ION VEIN is tracking its third album with Kernon at Rax Trax studio in Chicago and will be shopping for a new label home upon completion.
