Latest Vanna News

Below is our complete Vanna news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.

Vanna Enters The Studio

Boston’s melodic hardcore group Vanna has entered the studio to record a debut for Pure Noise Records, and 5th full-length overall, at the Machine Shop in NJ with Will Putney (Stay From The Path, Northlane, Miss May I & more).

The album is due for release this Summer. 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 favorite sounding records of late and they all had one common denominator, Will Putney."

He continues, “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.”

Vanna is currently on tour with IWrestledABearOnce, Oceano, Within The Ruins, The Plot In You, and Surrounded By Monsters. Vanna has now checked in with the following statement about missing tonight's previously scheduled New York show:

"Attention upstate NY fans: We regret to inform you that we will NOT be playing the show tonight at the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, NY.

"This morning our singer/guitarist Joel had to go to the hospital for some serious illnesses. He is on medication now and sleeping all day, as a concert environment is no place for a sick, contagious person. We intend to join back up with the tour tomorrow in West Springfield, VA @ Empire.

"The rest of the tour package will still be playing the show tonight so please attend and support them as it will be a great show. Sorry for the inconvenience and last minute cancellation but we hope you all understand."

Contributions are not just primarily from the Greater Boston area, but also Florida, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, and Qu?bec. All proceeds from this compilation will go directly to helping keep H.E.L.L. alive.

"The compilation includes NEW, EXCLUSIVE, and UNRELEASED songs from 108, Alanna (ex-Medicated Kisses), Jason Anderson, Attica!
