Vanna hit studio to record debut Pure Noise Records release

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

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.
