URN, the American dark metal band, have several announcements today the first being that they are honored to be working with Emmy Nominated make-up and special effects artist Cleve Hall for the filming/production of their music video for the song “Black Widow”. Many know Cleve from his own reality show MONSTER MAN on the SyFy Network. Besides creating special effects for films, Mr Hall has worked with bands like KISS, Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, Insane Clown Posse, Tenaceous D, and DEVO. URN is currently doing a crowdfunding campaign which is offering up new and rare merchandise items as perks for those who make contributions such as specially commissioned artwork by artist Lydia Burris.
URN also announced today that they are going to be returning to Winter NAMM 2017 in Anaheim, CA. In the past year, the band became officially endorsed artists with Breedlove Guitars, WB Gear, SIT Strings, InTune Picks, and Big Bends Nut Sauce.
