After a period of inactivity since 2007's "The Blue," which involved the departure of longstanding member Giuseppe Orlando, Novembre now returns with "URSA," a new set of potent and poignant tracks.

Headed by founding member and writer Carmelo Orlando, & with a reinvigorated musical alliance with Massimiliano Pagliuso, the line-up is completed by Fabio Fraschini (previously bassist on the "Materia" album), and David Folchitto on drums. There is also a special guest appearance from Anders Nystrom of Katatonia on this album, adding his own unique cold touch to the track "Annoluce."

"URSA" (the acronym for "Union des Republiques Socialistes Animales"), was the title initially chosen for the French translation of George Orwell's novel "Animal Farm." Lyrically and conceptually the album is a statement against the squalor of this Orwellian apocalypse we're committing towards the Earth and its sons, with indifference on a daily basis.

The album was recorded at Blue Noise Studio, and PlayRec studio by Massimiliano, then mixed and mastered at Unisound Studios by Dan Swano (Opeth, Katatonia, Bloodbath), Cover art comes courtesy of Travis Smith. Set to drop April 1st, pre-orders are online here.
