Veara Signs Epitaph Records, in partnership with Running Man Records, is proud to announce the signing of pop-punk group Veara. The Augusta, GA based band recently wrapped recording on their new studio album, which is expected for release this spring.

Fans can get an early listen to the first track, "We Have A Body Count," from the new record now on the band's MySpace page www.myspace.com/veara, watch a special video message from the band here (http://tinyurl.com/yhxozup) and check out an in-studio webisode here (http://tinyurl.com/yfr4uw6).

The pop-punk foursome consisting of Bradley Wyrosdick (Vocals), Patrick Bambrick (Vocals/Guitar), Bryan Kerr (Vocals/Bass) and Brittany Harrell (Drums) formed in 2003 and have since self-released an EP and full-length album and have toured with bands like The Maine, DangerRadio and Powerspace. In 2009 the band contacted Jeremy McKinnon and Joshua Woodard of hot pop-punk outfit A Day To Remember, who were looking for bands to work with on their newly formed company Running Man Records, and the rest is history.

"The dudes in Veara called me one night to see if I was in town and if I wanted to stop by and check out their new demos they had just wrapped up," explains Woodard. "I got them to burn me a CD, and within 5 minutes of leaving them I knew they were the band I wanted to work with."

In January of 2010, Veara entered Wade Studios in Ocala, FL, with McKinnon in the producer's chair and Andrew Wade tracking and mixing, where they recorded their forthcoming album. Looking for a partner to release the record, McKinnon and Woodard contacted Epitaph's owner and president Brett Gurewitz who was immediately interested and inked a deal with the band and Running Man to release the album.

"Signing with Epitaph is something that we used to dream of," says guitarist Bambrick. "We cannot express how stoked we are to be signing with a label that we have been fans of for years. Epitaph has put out many timeless albums, and we are stoked to be a part of an awesome family."

Already championed by readers on popular music site Absolutlepunk.net, Veara's explosive edgy pop-punk riffs and catchy hook driven choruses have made them one of the year's most promising breakout bands. Catch the band live on their upcoming tour with A Day To Remember, August Burns Red, Silverstein and Enter Shikari this April.

Stay tuned for more info on Veara's debut album from Epitaph Records and Running Man Records!

The song they posted on their myspace is extremely good, IMO. Can't wait to hear more from these guys.

Can't wait to catch them on tour with ADTR.

Yeah. I feel like this song they have on Myspace has been written and re-written a billion times already. I can't believe bands are still doing this sound. At this point it's just kind of embarrassing.

O. I know that. brokeNCYDE is horrible. This band is not bad at all. I mean I liked the song...its just that is the same stuff being rehatched over and over. I kind of feel like i'm back in late 90's / early 2000's when all these pop-punk bands started to all come out and sound the same. So i kind of feel like we are going to be flooded with a ton of pop-punk bands now.
