As The URN Turns (August 2009)

Greetings Friends! We hope that all is finding you well these days as times are hard in many places in the world. Our newsletter “As the URN Turns” took a few month hiatus as we were hard at work behind the scenes for all of the things we wish to share with you in this month’s edition. First off, as many of you may already know by the previous announcements that our new album “Scribings of a Forgotten Soul” is finally available. Once again, we’d like to give special thanks to Ron, Lori and all of the staff at Rotting Corpse Records for their incredible support in our musical careers and endeavors. Similar to our past releases, the title will be made available to all major chain store outlets such as FYE, Best, Buy, etc. through Synergy Distribution and Relapse Records. It will also be available through hundreds of online stores such as iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, etc. through CD Baby. We’ll be giving out announcements on these specific dates once they are made available to us. The official listening party is going to be held at CMF Metal Night at Exit on Sunday, August 23rd. The band will be there to host the event by spinning an eclectic mix of dark and aggressive music as well as prize giveaways. So we all cordially invite you to come out as we would like to see you and give our thanks in person for all of the support and love that we feel we’ve been given by you all.

However, we did want to make a special mention of the show on Saturday, August 15th: URN is honored to have been asked to perform on Saturday, August 15th in the "Run for Those Over There" Bike Rally/Benefit show Sponsored by the charity organization MOM'S (Men/Women of Military Service) Cookies this is fund-raising event for several area veterans whom have suffered life-debilitating injuries while in the line of duty serving our country in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Bike Rally begins in Chicago and runs to South Park in Wilmington, IL where the event will be held. URN will be one of several bands performing at the Rally. There will be many activities such as prizes to be won in 50/50 raffles, best bike competition, bean bag tournaments and much, much more. All proceeds will go to aiding the veterans.
