Verse Announces Release of Debut on Bridge Nine

Verse is excited to announce the release of their debut album on Bridge Nine Records, entitled "Aggression." The album hits stores everywhere TODAY, so if you haven’t done so already, be sure to pick up a copy! Recently, Verse has hit the international road making a name for themselves as they shared the stage with Bane, Have Heart, Comeback Kid and many, many more. What makes Verse a band with staying power and identity is that they take a powerful, dynamic, and passionate performance both on record and tape and infuse it with a political and social backbone that is all but lost in the hardcore scene. Punknews.org agreed when reviewing From Anger And Rage,saying,"Hardcore, plain and simple, needs more bands like Verse. More bands that can match their own passion and intensity with the skill to parlay it into something memorable."

In support of Aggression, Verse will be heading out this summer for a national tour with label mates, Have Heart. Be sure to check the bands Myspace page, and stay tuned for more updates and tour dates to be announced.
