We are also launching pre-orders for the CD edition A Soul Purged at the links below! Vinyl enthusiasts, not to worry, there will be an LP version of this record as well so keep an eye out for more news on that soon.

Urbain's debut album A Soul Purged is a cathartic scream into the void, a sonic portrait of a world spiraling into the depths of indifference and ignorance. 

Drawing its somber inspirations from the fallout of a pandemic that stripped cities down to their marrow, Urbain reflects on the despair that lurks beneath the surface of urban life. From our ego's toxic grip on our perceptions, our dwindling connection with the very sustenance we consume, to living in a world where empathy is eclipsed by the self-absorption of the modern denizen, the band brings to the surface the grotesque nature of our everyday reality. And then Urbain goes further by peeling back even darker layers of the city's skin - taking a critical and daring plunge into the abyss of human trafficking, a societal malignancy that goes largely unseen. 

For those with the stomach to face the unadulterated reality of our urban dystopia, Urbain serves as a brutal yet thought-provoking guide, brandishing music as a torch to illuminate the darkness.

A Soul Purged will be released on July 28, 2023.
