THE HONEST HEARTS DIGITAL EP TO BE RELEASED OCTOBER 12TH
Vanna has signed to the Artery Recordings roster, the new joint venture between The Artery Foundation and Razor & Tie. Based out of Boston, the melodic hardcore band is set to release a new digital EP, The Honest Hearts EP, on October 12th. Vanna is the sixth band to join Artery Recordings since the label was founded in late 2009.
Prior to joining the Artery family, Vanna previously released two full length albums and an EP while signed to Epitaph Records. The boys from Boston are excited about their new home at Artery Recordings. Vocalist Davey Muise stated, “Artery really caught a vision for who we are and where we want to go. It feels like such a great fit, and with Razor & Tie on board we are looking forward to our future and where this road will take us.”
A new version of “Trashmouth,” off of Vanna’s 2009 album A New Hope, has been re-recorded for The Honest Hearts EP featuring the vocals of Davey Muise who joined the band after their original vocalist parted ways shortly after the album’s release. The video for “Trashmouth” will premiere in September, and showcases the mischievous nature the band has become known for through their “Tough Life” videos they have creating for the past two years. The semi-monthly webisodes are filmed and edited by Vanna, and feature the band in an array of different situations on the road, while recording, or just hanging around. The “Tough Life” series has over 40 videos to date with over 300,000 total views on their official YouTube channel.
Vanna will join fellow Artery Recordings labelmates Chelsea Grin on the Ghostbustour, kicking off this fall. Iwrestledabearonce, Eyes Set To Kill, and The Chariot round out the tour’s lineup, which will run from mid September through late October, hitting venues nationwide. Vanna recently finished a run on the 2010 Vans Warped Tour during which they also headlined off dates with Kid Liberty and We Are Defiance.
Artery Recordings is the label home to The Artery Foundation and is an imprint of independent label Razor & Tie, whose roster now includes Chelsea Grin, Bury Tomorrow, Attila, I Declare War and A Bullet for Pretty Boy. A management company since 2004, The Artery Foundation has a knack for finding diamonds in the rough and nurturing them into worldwide prominence. Some of their recent artists flooding the Billboard charts have included Top 40 releases with The Devil Wears Prada as well as Top 100 releases with Alesana and Breathe Carolina and additional artists such as Asking Alexandria, Jonny Craig and Dance Gavin Dance.
New York-based Razor & Tie is one of the fastest growing independent record labels in the United States. The label has garnered both Platinum sales and Grammy awards, and is rapidly increasing their presence in the rock and metal genres. Their ever-expanding roster includes artists such as All That Remains, Norma Jean and The Summer Set, as well as upcoming releases from Dead Confederate and The Graduate.
