Chicago based metallers, ION VEIN, will release their self-titled third album on July 4 in Europe and July 8 in North America, via Mortal Music/MVD Audio in both CD and digital formats. The long awaited follow up to 2003’s “Reigning Memories” was once again produced, recorded, and mixed by Neil Kernon (Judas Priest, Nevermore, Redemption) and is the first full length album with vocalist, Scott Featherstone, whom the band first debuted on the IV v1.0 and IV v2.0 three song digital EPs released in September 2011 and December 2012 respectively. Additionally, the six songs from those EPs have been remixed / re-mastered for inclusion on the full album.
“It’s been quite an interesting ride indeed,” says guitarist/founder Chris Lotesto, “one full of ups, downs, and the proverbial black cloud that just seemed to follow us at every twist and turn but we’re finally able to bring you the next chapter in the ION VEIN story, and would couldn’t be more excited!” On choosing to go the self-titled route, Lotesto continued, “we kicked around a handful of titles but it just seemed most natural to call the record ION VEIN to signify the re-building and re-tooling of the band as the starting point for the next phase in our story.”

To give you a first impression of their upcoming album, they released a lyricvideo for the song “Anger Inside” on Youtube!
A comment regarding the song “Anger Inside” by Chris Lotesto:
” “AngerInside ” shows a lot of the “in-your-face” side of us, the heavy riffing, the ballsy/melodic vocals, dynamic breakdown, and raging guitar solos but also connects with a lot of the frustrations we all feel these days with what’s going on in the world so hopefully you can crank it up, release that “anger inside” by singing along, and then grab an ice cream cone or something!”
