Pop-punk newcomers Veara have announced plans to release their new album, What We Left Behind, on May 25 via Epitaph Records in partnership with Running Man Records. Starting today, fans can listen to the brand new track "My B-Side Life" on their MySpace page and pre-order the new album here.
The quirky foursome from Augusta, GA, made up of Bradley Wyrosdick (Vocals), Patrick Bambrick (Vocals/Guitar), Bryan Kerr (Vocals/Bass) and Brittany Harrell (Drums), has officially arrived on the scene with their highly energetic new album, What We Left Behind. Co-produced by A Day To Remember frontman Jeremy McKinnon and master of the boards Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Our Last Night), Veara's sophomore release draws influence from genre groundbreakers like New Found Glory and Blink 182, while boasting a sharp contemporary edginess that will rapidly elevate them within the scene.
Veara has a lot to prove with the release of What We Left Behind, a title which the band says is about leaving behind doubt and naysayers, and a theme that can be found throughout the album. After years of fighting a revolving door of band members, ceaseless doubt and small town narrow-mindedness, Veara respond with a bold new album.
"We have been through a lot of turmoil as a band," says drummer Brittany Harrell. "Whether it be people doubting us, saying you can't do this, members quitting, people lying, etc. The songs on this record have to do with everything that we were going through within that year. It pretty much means all those topics are being left behind because we can do this and we will do this no matter what."
"It's not just for us though," adds vocalist Bradley Wyrosdick. "It's for everyone that has a dream and has people telling them they can't do what they want to do with their life. It's your life and you can accomplish whatever you put your mind to, and that's what we did with What We Left Behind."
And the proof is in the music. Bouncy choruses, ripping riffs and terrorizing drums rule on What We Left Behind. Featuring tracks like the fiery opener, "We Have a Body Count," the newly released sing-along "My B-Side Life" and the mosh-popper "Head For The Hills," What We Left Behind is an honest take of the band's life experiences over the past several years, set to a musical score of anthemic pop-punk.
On My Honor
ON MY HONOR is a pop-punk band from Knoxville, TN signed to Little Heart Records. The band's sound revolves around making honest music with an emphasis on personal lyrics, intricate guitars, and high energy songs that focus on topics other than breaking up with your girlfriend, while straying away from the typical "verse-chorus-breakdown" formula. Since late 2007 they have done 16 U.S. tours, played over 350 shows, built a draw of 400 plus in their hometown, logged iTunes and online sales on four (4) continents, received press across the world from press outlets like Alternative Press, Amp, Lights Out UK, Absolute Punk, Punktastic, and Property of Zack. The band also played The Vans Warped Tour in 2009. After touring almost constantly since summer 2011, the band released their new EP entitled "Nature & Nurture" September 6th and the record debuted in the top 100 globally on Interpunk. The band plans on touring as much as possible in support of the record anywhere in the world they can get in 2012. On My Honor believes "Nature & Nurture" is a big step and everyone else seems to agree so far:
"Nature & Nurture is undoubtedly a record where too often words fall short. I can only hope that more artists, and listeners, see this as an exemplary display of musicianship, where the real justice is done when listened to first-hand" –xeasycorex.net
"Right from the opening line "what if these are the last words I ever get to say?" -Its an EP crammed full of fist in the air, heart on the sleeve, sing-a-longs. They've delivered a fast-paced, anthemic punk-rock record steeped in sincerity and with a little bit more nurturing, ON MY HONOR could become one of your favorite bands" -Punktastic
Blending pure, raw emotion with elements of alternative rock and punk roots, Grayscale has spent the past four years crafting their own unique loud and catchy sound. Delving into their deepest personal thoughts and experiences, lyricists Collin Walsh and Dallas Molster call it as they see it, no matter how brutally honest. The band’s bouncy rhythms and memorable hooks will stick in your head on first listen, and their relatable lyrics and stories will have you singing and screaming along in no time.
Emerging quickly from the thriving Philadelphia punk scene, Grayscale have been at it since late 2011 building a strong reputation and gaining steam among fans and music lovers. Coming off of their successful “Change EP” release in April 2015, the band is now ready to unveil its latest and most complete collection of songs to date in their Anchor Eighty Four Records full-length debut, “What We’re Missing”. Produced by Gary Cioffi (Transit, Misser, A Will Away) and Mastered by Brian Gardner (The Story So Far, Teagan & Sara, Kendrick Lamar); WWM is sizing up to be an incredible release with stronger hooks, more intricate instrumentation, and well-narrated stories. Grayscale is comprised of Walsh, Molster, Nick Veno, Andrew Kyne, and Derek Parker.
Short Lived Affair
Short Lived Affair was formed by a group of Marlton, New Jersey girls at the beginning of their high school careers, and have spent the last four years working hard to get where they are today. They've played with the likes of Hawthorne Heights and the Wonder Years, played the Zumiez stage at Bamboozle 2011, and played the Break Stage at Bamboozle 2012 with an audience of over 1,000 people. After the recent lineup change, they were able to pull through, and are now a stronger and closer band than ever. They have just put out their own EP, Catapultastrophe, and now, with high school ending, are ready to get out there to kick ass and take names. They are a band that truly loves every aspect of what they do, a band with a style that has something to offer for everyone, and a band with a message thats worth listening to.
