Bolero Changes Band Name To Vesperia, Set To Release New Demo "The Swordsman"

The following press release has been issued about Bolero changing the band's name to Vesperia:

"With the new year always come changes and challenges and for Ontario, Canada’s Bolero, 2012 has already shaped up to be all about transformation and evolution. Out with the old and in with the new.

"After several months of deep thinking and more than half a decade of live shows, line-up changes and the constant shake-ups in the music industry, the four musicians behind Bolero decided it was time for a big move - a change in name and mentality. Ladies, gentlemen and metal Vikings, we present to you, VESPERIA.

"Continuing to derive influences from thrash, black metal and traditional folk music, Vesperia are not leaving their epic orchestrations, throat-crushing speed nor ear-piercing guitar riffs behind, rather, they’re intensifying each element, adding more energy to their live shows just when fans thought they couldn’t get any more amped up and prepping to release their new demo as Vesperia, entitled 'The Swordsman.'"

“This new name means 'of the land of the evening star' and the word ‘Vesperia’ was one of the proposed names for Canada before our country's name was decided upon,” explained Morgan Rider of the chosen name’s origins.

"The Swordsman" can be streamed via the band's Facebook profile. In celebration of these momentous changes and of the upcoming release, Vesperia will be offering fans a free download of a brand new recording off "The Swordsman" every week for the upcoming month. The band also has the following upcoming live shows:

May 18, 2012 – The Port - Barrie, ON
June 1, 2012 – The Granite Club - North Bay, ON
June 2, 2012 – The Serbian Centre - Sudbury, ON
