Urne Release New Single – The Burden

London metal trio, Urne, have today released the second single from their forthcoming album, A Feast On Sorrow. Titled ‘The Burden’, this new track addresses the struggles placed on frontman, Joe Nally’s, family in the face of dementia.

Giving additional insight on the song, guitarist, Angus Neyra, says:

This was one of the final songs written for the album, and as a band we always try to show something new with each single. With this track we aimed for a big sounding arena metal riff, something we hope goes down well live!

Nally had the colouring and visuals in mind for what he wanted, and we managed to make this come alive with the help of Loki Films.

Urne’s deeply personal second studio album, A Feast On Sorrow, is due for release on August 11th 2023 via Candlelight Records, A Feast On Sorrow is a stark rumination on the grim inevitabilities of disease, dementia and deterioration in old age.
