Five-piece progressive rock band Versus, who recently inked a deal with Revival Recordings, are proud to announce the release of their forthcoming debut full-length, The Cardinal out March 3, 2017. To celebrate, the band has partnered with METAL UNDERGROUND to unleash a new single/music video for “Stone Heart,” a song about how hard life can be at times and how hard it is to deal with mental illness. The band continues “when you feel like the ant under the magnifying glass, it’s already an uphill battle and even harder when there’s weight holding you down.” The band is currently on the road with fellow label mates Alesana and Charlatan!
The Cardinal was written entirely by Versus and produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Casey Bates (Memphis May Fire, Chiodos, Pierce The Veil, A Skylit Drive) with assistance from Brandon Boylan (tracking engineer/editing/production), Mack Newman and Josh Kendrick as additional engineers. The album comes just a year after the band’s debut EP The Black was released and fans are sure in for a treat! Off the debut full-length also comes “No Safety” a track about not feeling comfortable enough to open up about where you are mentally. The band continues, “Whether that be with your partner or best friend, people dealing with depression and anxiety are good about keeping it all in. What’s what gets you there in the first place.”
