Dirge Within to release new album April 10
Come April, Chicago’s own Dirge Within will be releasing its sophomore album titled “There Will Be Blood” via Rocket Science Ventures/THC: Music. The album will be the first to feature drummer Frankie Harchut and bassist Jeff Paulick (bassist/vocalist of Lazarus A.D.). According to Jeremy “Jerms” Genske, the songs are “heavier, smarter, and more melodic in parts” (Blabbermouth.net).
