VEARA RECORD RELEASE !!!
Our recent signing Veara has announced plans to release their new album "What We Left Behind" on May 25th with Running Man Records in partnership with Epitaph Records. You can now head to the band's MYSPACE PAGE to hear two brand new tracks from the album!
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. 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.
Eager to hit the road once again, Veara will kick off their US tour with A Day To Remember on March 31 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Don't miss one of pop-punk's most exciting new bands!!
