“With a sound that invoked the ghosts of bygone eras, they delivered a set well beyond their
years and their time slot.” – Nova fm (Online): Big Day Out 2013
Gold Coast, Australia – July 2, 2013 –The Aussie blues rock n’ roll band, known as the Vernons, will be releasing their debut EP,Volume I, in the US on September 6th, 2013. Produced by multi award winning engineer Yanto Browning (The Medics, The Jungle Giants, Kate Miller-Heidke), their release will be in conjunction with an extensive national tour in September 2013. With hints of Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, and Jack White, Volume I will without a doubt be a favorite in 2013! For more information, please visit:www.TheVernonsBand.com.
Consisting of Jonny Nyst (Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), James Nikiforides (Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals), Hugh Tait (Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals), and Elliot Gooch (Drums/Backing Vocals), the Vernons have been treading the live music boards since their conception in early 2012. Their ever-growing rep has allowed them to support the likes of Wolfmother, The Rubens, Wolf & Cub, to name a few, as well as earning them a spot on the prestigious lineup of Big Day Out Festival 2013. In 2013 the Vernons also secured a major sync for one of Australia’s premiere football league AFL teams, “The Suns”,which aired nationally on cable and major television and radio networks.
With a relentless work ethic and a calculated disregard for musical rules, the Vernons have a dominance of their live performance that has developed a cult crowd following of belligerence and debauchery that has ultimately labeled them as one of Australia’s most exciting young blues-rock outfits today. Hit single, “Standing In Line” will catch your attention by the first guitar riff, causing you to dance along with the catchy beat throughout the whole three-minute track. “White Wine” airs more on the relaxed side, which will leave the listener hanging on to each lyric that comes out of Nyst’s mouth, showcasing his smooth and irresistible vocals.
Sculpting their sound from belligerent nights out, hung-over days in, and their parents old vinyl records, lead-singer Nyst tells us,“Volume I is our first EP, but in just 4 songs it basically tells the story of our lives over the past 2 years. Whether they were written just to have fun and party, or to remember meeting a pretty girl at one of our shows, or something much more deep and meaningful, each song is directly related to our journey, working together every day on the road. Obviously, there are good times and there are bad times, and this EP basically captures all those emotions, and tells the tale of a hard working bunch of rock ‘n’ rollers.”
the Vernons will release their debut EP, Volume 1, on September 6th, 2013.
