Vanna hit studio to record debut Pure Noise Records release

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 25th March 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

Boston melodic hardcore unit Vanna have entered the studio to record their next album, which will also act as the band’s debut release through Pure Noise Records as well as their fifth studio album. Vanna are currently recording at the Machine Shop in NJ with Will Putney (Stay From The Path, Northlane, Miss May I). The band’s fifth studio album will be out in summer later this year. Vocalist Davey Muise comments:

One of the things we love most about music is the freedom to try new things and mess around with new sounds and bring different elements into play. We’ve gotten to work with such amazing producers and engineers in the past. As we started looking towards our future and what we wanted to capture with a new record we started jamming some of out favourite sounding records of late and they all had one common denominator, Will Putney.

Making the move to Pure Noise Records was a direction step for us that we really wanted and we needed a producer and studio that could take us to levels and places we ourselves haven’t been too. Hearing Will was psyched to work with us was the icing on the cake for all involved. Will himself being a touring musician and really having an ear to the ground and a finger on the pulse of what’s going on not only in music but the world, certainly made our mutual decision very easy. We can’t wait to see what he and the staff at The Machine Shop will pull out of us this time. Except new and big things.

The band will continue their reputation of being one of the hardest working touring bands by appearing on the whole of the US Warped tour this summer.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 9th November 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

Boston-based band Dropkick Murphys are excited to share their new music video for their song Rose Tattoo.The video features contributions by the band’s most devoted fans, whom the band asked to get tattoos of the new album art, and then send in videos and photos of their new ink. “Rose Tattoo” features Winston Marsalis from Mumford & Sons playing banjo.

Rose Tattoo is one of the songs off the band’s forthcoming album, Signed And Sealed In Blood, to be released January 7th via Born and Bred Records via Cooperative Music. Presale for the album will begin on November 23rd. The album is their second with producer Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Old Crow Medicine Show), which was recorded at Boston’s Q Division studios and mixed by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes). “We had such a great time writing our last album, Going Out In Style, we were excited to get back into the studio right away,” says bassist and co-lead singer Ken Casey. “Where Going Out in Style was a concept album—kind of intricate and difficult—this one is catchy, fun, and as sing-along as can be.

Since they first hit the scene in 1996, the Boston seven-piece have racked up record sales in excess of 4 million worldwide and have collaborated with numerous global superstars including Bruce Springsteen (who featured on Going Out In Style).  Their smash hit single I’m Shipping Up to Boston exceeded platinum status and was featured heavily in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning film, The Departed. Their 2011 offering, Going Out In Style, debuted in the Billboard Top 10 at #6, marking the band’s highest chart entry to date and heralding the continued success of their independent label Born & Bred Records. The band now sell out shows worldwide and have cultivated one of the most fervent fan bases in rock music.

Dropkick Murphys areAl Barr (lead vocals), Tim Brennan (guitars, accordion, whistle, vocals), Ken Casey (lead vocals, bass guitar), Jeff DaRosa (banjo, bouzouki, mandolin, harmonica, vocals), Matt Kelly (drums, vocals), James Lynch (guitar, vocals), and Scruffy Wallace(bagpipes, tin whistles).
