Theatrical and genre-effacing New Jersey quintet Vanish have announced that they have signed to Hopeless Records and with that, their debut full-length album will be coming to fans in the new year. Familiar Faces, due out March 15, 2019, shows the band growing into themselves and opening up creatively while experimenting with plenty of genre crossover. Pre-orders are available here.
In addition to the signing and album announce, the band has dropped the first single from the upcoming album, “Role Play.” On the new track, the band shares “We chose Role Play as our first single to our album because it really embodies every aspect of the sound we’ve been developing over the past couple years. We hope there’s something in this song for everyone to enjoy or relate to because the overall theme really hits home for us.”
In central New Jersey, their contemporaries were leaning hard into heavy music or toward pop-punk, while Vanish rested somewhere between, with influences from both sides and beyond, making them oddball and stand-out enough that it worked to their advantage. Within two years of becoming a band and one year from the release of their debut EP From Sheep To Wolves, they were selected to perform at the final Vans Warped Tour date in their home state and soon after gained the attention of Hopeless Records.
On signing to Hopeless Records, the band shares “We couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Hopeless Records family. They are the most devoted and loving group of people we could have asked for and we’re excited to have them help make our musical vision a reality.”
