Aided by a successful crowdfunding campaign through Patreon, NeO‘s third studio album Urn was released in October 2017 and garnered mostly positive critic reviews. Their genre-bending blend of extreme and progressive metal kept old fans happy and brought in many new listeners as well. NeO has already extensively toured in support of this album. They did a North American tour with Allegaeon, an Australia/New Zealand tour with Circles, and a European tour with Allegaeon and Virvum. Needless to say these guys work hard and stay busy, easily earning the respect of fans. Now it’s due time for those fans in Asia to get a chance to see live the awesome songs from Urn.
