Equal Vision Records have announced the newest addition to their label roster with the signing of solo artist Vinnie Caruana. For those unfamiliar with Vinnie, he is a member of the Punk Rock band I Am The Avalanche. As of yesterday, he has entered the studio to begin the recording process for his debut solo full length with producer Brett “The Ratt” Romnes.
Of the upcoming recording Caruana reveals, “This album will be intensely personal. I’ve been writing it all year and stand firmly behind the statement that this is the best, most fully-formed songwriting I’ve ever created. Brett “The Ratt” Romnes – who produced the last two I Am The Avalanche records – will be manning the boards. We are recording at The Barber Shop Studios in Lake Hopatcong, NJ. The studio is on the shore of a lake, in a beautiful old stone church from the late 1800s that has been converted into a studio. I’ll be playing guitar and singing, The Ratt will play drums, Steve Choi (Rx Bandits, The Sound of Animals Fighting, Peace’d Out) will be contributing keys and guitars, and Kellen Robson (I Am The Avalanche, Pass Away) will be playing bass. But enough talk for now…it’s time to get in the studio so I can show the world what I’ve been working on.”
While solo dates for the new year are yet to be announced, Caruana is confirmed to perform with The Movielife on December 27th at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ and with I Am The Avalanche on January 23 at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY.
