WATCH: Vera Grace – ‘Griever’ Live Session
‘Griever’ Is Taken From The New EP, ‘Novella’
To Be Self-Released On August 17th 2015
“Their chaotic vibe, similar to that of The Chariot and Feed The Rhino, makes a refreshing change from some of the staler sounds that are dominating the genre at the moment.” – Dead Press
“…harrowing… I feel inspired and moved” – This Noise Is Ours
“this EP is seriously worth your time.” – Toxic Online
“Novella shows just why this band is a must have on your iTunes” – RAMzine
“These guys prove through their music that they love what they do as well as be brilliant at doing it.” – Unsigned and Unholy
“As a band, we really enjoy checking out other live sessions online and it’s something we’ve always wanted to do.” says vocalist Stephen Nulty. “I think it really can capture how well a band can perform their music. An actual gig has the atmosphere of the venue, but if you can create an atmosphere from the live sessions just from your music, that’s something really special; Something that we wanted to try and achieve”
The Oxfordshire based post-hardcore quintet will be delivering their new EP ‘Novella’, on August 17th. The new 6 track EP follows a story, winding it’s way through the scenes. Losing faith, henious crimes and murder – all told by vocalist Stephen Nulty, throughout the 20 minute duration.
The word ‘Novella’ means, ‘a written, fictional, prose narrative normally longer than a short story but shorter than a novel’.
‘Novella’ is a concept, set as a play. Each track representing a scene. The play revolves around two separate stories that entwine with each other throughout. The tale follows a man who loses his faith and commits terrible acts, the worst being him killing a man. This sees repurcussions of his actions and the story branches yet further.
As the EP progresses, the stories grow side by side.
The lyrics imposed on the new material contain frontman, Stephen Nulty’s meanings, which relate to personal issues in his life.
‘Novella’ will be released digitally and extremely limited edition CD; The EP on CD features a one of a kind hand made cover, individually numbered from 1 – 100.
‘Novella’ is available to pre-order directly from the band, here: http://veragrace.bigcartel.com/
