Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada-based act THE VEER UNION will release its newest slab of guitar driven melodic rock titled “Decade” on January 29, 2016 through Pavement Entertainment.
The video for the single “Defying Gravity” can be seen below.
2016 marks ten years since the release of THE VEER UNION‘s first album, “Time To Break The Spell”, and the new CD follows the highly successful 2012 release “Divide The Blackened Sky”.
Lead vocalist Crispin Earl took a rather unique approach to coincide with the concept of the new album “Decade”. He took the opportunity to take five unreleased songs which were written before the first incarnation of THE VEER UNION ten years ago, and bring them back to life. Five brand new songs were also written for this new album, bridging the span of over a decade, proving that THE VEER UNION can stand the test of time. By incorporating the original vision of the band and blending it with the current incarnation, “Decade” truly takes the listener through the musical and emotion journey that represents all that is THE VEER UNION.
Crispin, like many other musicians, has struggled with depression over the years. Despite his internal battle, he continues to persevere through life and his musical journey, which is what the leadoff single “Defying Gravity” lyrically signifies. The album was self produced by Crispin in order to oversee every aspect of the recording and emotion involved in the making of the release.
It has taken THE VEER UNION four years to rebuild with new members Ryan Ramsdell (rhythm guitar), Dan Sittler (lead guitar), touring drummer Tyler Reimer, and Amal Wijayanayake (bass/scream vocals). THE VEER UNION is now ready to take 2016 by storm with a new album, new outlook, and new fire burning inside them.
