The Veer Union has just released the video for their breakout single Seasons.” Packed with all the energy of a summer anthem, the clip is loaded from start to finish with driving guitar solos and pure rock adrenaline. Seasons is the first taste of this Vancouver based band, who are now currently touring in support of their major label debut album Against the Grain. Head over to The Veer Union’s MySpace to find out when they’ll be near you and check out a recent interview we did with the band’s guitarist Fid here!
The Veer Union started coming together as a band when long time friends Crispin Earl and Eric Schraeder found themselves living out of their rehearsal spaces in Canada and teaming up to write some music. After realizing how cohesive their styles were they set out to find the missing pieces. Enter Marc “Roots” Roots and James “Fid” Fiddler soon followed by Neil Beaton.
Choosing the name The Veer Union in honor of their musical brotherhood and the path they would travel together the band wrote and toured their hearts out for a few years before they were signed by Universal Motown Records. With their first major label release, Against the Grain, the band strived to write hearty rock songs full of hope that would easily relate to their fan base – mission accomplished.
Gearing up for a tour with Halestorm and Burn Halo, guitarist Fid took some time to fill us in on the band, the album and how things all fell into place.
