Running Man Records, in partnership with Epitaph Records, is proud to announce the signing of pop-punk group Veara. The Augusta, GA based band recently wrapped recording on their new studio album, which is expected for release this spring.
The pop-punk foursome consisting of Bradley Wyrosdick (Vocals), Patrick Bambrick (Vocals/Guitar), Bryan Kerr (Vocals/Bass) and Brittany Harrell (Drums) formed in 2003 and have since self-released an EP and full-length album and have toured with bands like The Maine, DangerRadio and Powerspace. In 2009 the band contacted Jeremy McKinnon and Joshua Woodard of hot pop-punk outfit A Day To Remember, who were looking for bands to work with on their newly formed company Running Man Records, and the rest is history.
"The dudes in Veara called me one night to see if I was in town and if I wanted to stop by and check out their new demos they had just wrapped up," explains Woodard. "I got them to burn me a CD, and within 5 minutes of leaving them I knew they were the band I wanted to work with."
In January of 2010, Veara entered Wade Studios in Ocala, FL, with McKinnon in the producer's chair and Andrew Wade tracking and mixing, where they recorded their forthcoming album. Looking for a partner to release the record, McKinnon and Woodard contacted Epitaph's owner and president Brett Gurewitz who was immediately interested and inked a deal with the band and Running Man to release the album.
Already championed by readers on popular music site Absolutlepunk.net, Veara's explosive edgy pop-punk riffs and catchy hook driven choruses have made them one of the year's most promising breakout bands. Catch the band live on their upcoming tour with A Day To Remember, August Burns Red, Silverstein and Enter Shikari this April.
