Album Notes:
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, the misconceptions of the afterlife, 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.
