Breaching Vista Create Vera City album


“Epic” is a descriptor that gets thrown around much too often, especially as of late. But once in awhile, a band comes around with intentions so grand and a sound even more limitless that there is no other choice but to give them the credit they deserve: they are epic, and the inspiration they provide for their fans knows no limits. Right from the opening rush of the scorching lead-off track from their upcoming album, Kitchener’s Breaching Vista become that band. Out on May 3rd via Bright Side Records, the release of Vera City will quickly move listeners to put their fists in the air and set their eyes on the immeasurable horizon.

Many are already familiar with Breaching Vista through their debut EP Breaking The View and having shared the stage with notable acts such as Down With Webster, USS, Protest the Hero, Finger Eleven, Stereos, and Hedley. They’ve played to crowds over 10,000 for the last 3 years after landing the closing Canada Day ceremonies in their hometown, participated in festivals including 2010’s ‘Beat Rocks The Block’ and ‘Rock The Mill’ and most recently opened up Canadian Music Week at the Sirius Satellite Radio party. And now to their series of great achievements they will add Vera City; the perfect introduction to the four piece’s unique brand of toe-tapping, pop-leaning glory infused with a punchy, hard-rock edge.

“The work ethic and passion behind Breaching Vista is incredible. This talented Kitchener-based band is ready to make a big impact in Canada’s music scene and beyond.” – Mr. D, Music Director, 91.5 The Beat

“It’s hard to dispute that Breaching Vista is one of the hardest working local bands in the region.” – Echo Weekly

“Though this type of music has been done before (think Billy Talent, Sum 41, Jimmy Eat World, etc), it is not often done this well. When it comes to this particular brand of aggressive-yet-accessible radio-rock, Breaching Vista are exemplary representatives of their ilk.” – The Record

What’s more, Vera City proves that Breaching Vista’s time spent sharing stages with many noteable acts has influenced them in a countless number of ways. ‘Reverie’ is a rolling, melodic romp that packs as much emotion as possible into four minutes, while ‘Goodbye, So Long’ gives a voice to those long, lonely nights every music fan has experienced but with a dignified and at times, deviant drive. The relentless wash of ‘Little Thoughts,’ the album’s bruising closer and ‘Sleep,’ Vera City’s standout track leave no doubt as to the band’s pummeling aesthetic. Yet when they slow things down, their sound is no less impressive and the results are just as effective. ‘Nervous’ features a lush mix of acoustic and electric guitars and ‘Forgive You’ is sure to be a fixture on FM Radio.

Vast in emotion and impressive in composition, Breaching Vista’s release of Vera City is truly one of epic proportions.
