URN Announces New Drummer

Chicago-based gothic/doom metal band URN has announced the addition of drummer Jeremiah Link (NECROGRESSION, THRUSTER, DEADNIGHT) to the group's ranks. Jeremiah had been sitting in with the band following the departure of Melissa Jade shortly after the group returned from its tour with TARJA TURUNEN and THE ETERNAL this past spring.

Jeremiah will make his live debut with URN at the Maidens of Metal Festival on September 26 in Oak Forrest, Illinois. A Canadian tour will follow in October. The band is also scheduled to shoot a video for the song "Reckoning Hour" with Liquid Productions (who previously worked on NOVEMBERS DOOM's "Rain" clip).

URN's third album, "Scribings of a Forgotten Soul", was released in July via Rotting Corpse Records. The artwork was created by Corvis Nocturnum, who runs The Ninth Gate magazine, and the layout was designed by Connie Bergmann of DarkWind Studios.

"Scribings of a Forgotten Soul" was once again mixed and mastered by Dan Precision at Bombshelter Studios (RISE AGAINST, NAKED RAYGUN) in Chicago, Illinois and it features a guest appearance by Rev. Thomas Thorn of the ELECTRIC HELLFIRE CLUB on the song "Hero Worship". (URN frontman Dominic St. Charles had played guitar and did backing vocals with the ELECTRIC HELLFIRE CLUB back in late 1999 to 2000 around the "Witness of the Millennium" album and its subsequent touring cycle and the two have remained very close over the years.)
