(TAYF) ReThink Records have set a May 8th release date for the new self-titled album from Hung, which features Lyris Hung of Trans Siberian Orchestra.

ReThink Records is the new label founded by Chris Adler (Lamb of God) and The End Records. We were sent the following background info:

The album features 10 tracks engineered and produced by Andy Abel and Lyris Hung at Abel Studios in Connecticut, with vocals tracked and produced by Ryan Kelly at MSR Studios and Nova Studios in New York City.

About the band: World-renowned violinist Lyris Hung (Bryan Adams, Indigo Girls, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), the band's namesake, had known for a long time that she wanted to start a band focused on heavy music. The tattoo clad, classically trained violinist (Juilliard / Columbia University) decided to bring this to fruition in early 2005. A Craigslist ad and one fateful meeting later, HUNG was born.

Jon Clark and Sam Roon (founder, SkullsNBones.com) had been playing together for many years, searching for musicians (including violinists) to play a unique style of progressive music. Naturally when the call came in to play with Lyris, the decision was easy.

Finding a singer took less than a year when Moscow native Dmitry Kostitsyn came in to front the band. HUNG went through several drummers before adding the final piece to the puzzle with renowned Jazz / World Powerhouse Kenny Grohowski (Richie Ray, Bobby Cruz. Cassandra Wilson, Lonnie Plaxico).
