Chicago's ION VEIN will perform at the third annual Metal Mergence, set to take place Saturday, July 11 at Reggie's Rock Toom in the band's hometown. Also scheduled to appear are RIVAL, MINDWARP CHAMBER and TOMORROW HAS ARRIVED.

Metal Mergence is a networking conference founded by Scott Jackson of Monsterman Graphic to help bring together musicians, graphic artists, record labels, booking reps and various other industry types "in hopes of assisting each other with their music projects."

Commented the band: "We've been hard at work wrapping up the new album, so it will be great to get out and tear it up once again onstage, especially back in the city at a really cool venue! We look forward to seeing you there!"

ION VEIN returned to the studio in January 2009 with producer Neil Kernon (NILE, NEVERMORE, DEICIDE) to complete work on its long-awaited third album and to continue shopping it to prospective labels/management.
