Chicago's DIRGE WITHIN Issue Comeback Single with Re-Recorded "Memories"

Written by

Two months after revealing their resurrection and reformation, DIRGE WITHIN are ready to make new “Memories” with the release of their comeback single, available today on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other digital outlets. Originally featured on their 2012 album, "There Will Be Blood," the re-recorded single positions the band to pick up right where they left off prior to their five-year hiatus.

“Things have been moving slow and steady in our camp since reuniting this spring,” said founding guitarist Shaun Glass. “After announcing our first show back, we jumped into the studio to record a new version of ‘Memories,’ tapping the mighty Joel Wanasek (Machine Head, Righteous Vendetta) to mix the improved single. We appreciate all of the kind words we’ve received since announcing our resurrection, and will keep everyone posted on our next steps.”

Those next steps will undoubtedly include additional live dates, with further announcements coming down the road.
