Urge Overkill Offer Free Download of First Album in 15 Years

Urge Overkill is offering fans a free download of their first new song in 15 years via Spin.com. Gibson reports: The band, famous for their Neil Diamond cover (and soundtrack to Mrs. Mia Wallace's overdose) "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon," are prepping a new album, the long-awaited follow-up to 1995's Exit the Dragon.

The band actually broke up in the mid-'90s, but founding frontmen Nash Kato and Eddie "King" Roeser regrouped a few years back and have been playing shows ever since. Now they are getting years of demos down to a 12-song album, the first taste of which is "Effigy" (not to be confused with the CCR song of the same name) and can be downloaded here.

"This is gonna happen," singer/guitarist Roeser said. "We are batting around concepts, but yes, there will be an Urge record coming out next year." - more on this story
