Versus Premieres "Stone Heart" Video, Reveals "The Cardinal" Album Details

Following previous EP "The Black" and a U.S. tour, Seattle five-piece outfit Versus is gearing up for the release of a full-length album titled "The Cardinal."

Today we're proud to bring you an exclusive premiere not just of a new music video, but the official announcement that "The Cardinal" will land via Revival Recordings on March 3rd, 2017.

Check out the cover artwork below for this new album meant to spread a message of hope for individuals battling mental illness. The new album was produced by Casey Bates with additional engineering by Brandon Boylan, Mack Newman, and Josh Kendrick. In addition to the album info, we're stoked to bring you a video for new single "Stone Heart," which can be seen below.

Versus comments on the video single: "'Stone Heart' is a song that talks about how hard of a path life can be, especially when dealing with mental illness. When you feel like the ant under the magnifying glass, it can already be an uphill battle to climb out of and even harder when there’s a weight holding you down.”

Like what you heard? Head over to Revival Recordings to pre-order the album and receive an instant grat track download of “Stone Heart." The band also had this to say about the upcoming new album:

“'The Cardinal' is a very personal record to us. The entire record dives a little deeper in to the unique understanding of what anxiety and depression can feel like for an individual.

"The saying ‘I’m hollow underneath my skin’ is a such an important quote because it gives an image of what this would look like for a person. When an individual is whole in the physical sense but his soul and bones are compromised. These are the songs that detail that moment of understanding and spotlight the sickening feeling.”

There's even more good news! The band will be kicking off a support run with Alesana this weekend (February 4th) - see tour info below!
