Hello everybody and greetings again from Finland´s premier Melodic Rock group, Urban Tale!

I´m finally able to break some big news to you, so read on! Our management has signed the licensing deals for European and Asian territory! After negotiating with 5 different European labels, a licensing deal that covers the entire European territory was signed with FRONTIERS RECORDS, a label that should be pretty familiar to many of you…also, a deal that covers the entire Asia was signed with Japanese MARQUEE AVALON.

The release dates for the album look like this: The Asian release is set to 07/21/01 and the European release will follow in August (exact date TBA, so much for May…sorry!) on the waves of Frontiers´ mighty GIANT release. And it looks like Europe and Asia will NOT be the only areas in which the album will be released…stay tuned for more info! Urban Tale would like to express their gratitude to their management @ RoastingHouse productions (Thomas & Theo) for their great work, and also all of the labels that gave all those good offers. I can tell you that the choise wasn´t too easy.

At the moment the album cover is in the works. It´ll be 12 pages in full colour w/see-thru cd tray, so it´ll look really cool. We are working on the cover concept, the album title and the song sequence. The Asian release will have one bonus track.

Many have asked for live show dates, so here we go:

04/03/01 Copenhagen, Denmark (Nokia Road Show)
04/09/01 Rotterdam, Holland (Nokia Road Show)
04/12/01 Stockholm, Sweden (Club Anchor, Sveavägen)
04/13/01 Stockholm, Sweden (Club Anchor, Sveavägen)
04/27/01 Helsinki, Finland (Pub Simone, Acoustic trio format)
04/28/01 Helsinki, Finland (Pub Simone, Acoustic trio format)

06/07/01 Äänekoski, Finland (Kuikan Lava, Nokia Summer Party Tour)
06/08/01 Tampere, Finland (Hotel Rosendahl, Nokia Summer Party Tour)
06/15/01 Oulu, Finland (Nokia Summer Party Tour)
06/16/01 Salo, Finland (Nokia Summer Party Tour)
06/20/01 Espoo, Finland (Nokia Summer Party Tour)
06/29/01 Helsinki, Finland (Raffaello Terrace)

08/25/01 Helsinki, Finland (Raffaello Terrace)

Well, it´s probably needless to say that we are very happy that the deals are finally signed and we are truly rolling. It´s wonderful to be able to give you some real info and dates instead of just talk and promises… now the release is on it´s way and we hope that this will be a good year for melodic rock, with the Journey and Giant albums hopefully pushing all the other bands higher as well!

As I´ve said earlier, we are totally open to all interviews and articles for webzines, magazines etc… don´t hesitate to ask! Also, if you have questions about anything, please do contact us. We love to hear from you! Stay tuned for more info in the future, and dont forget to visit us at www.saunalahti.fi/pudas/urbantale (still functional for a while…)

Thanks for reading, rock on!
