DEAS VAIL TO RELEASE THE SIDE EFFECT EP ON JUNE 26

FEATURING ACOUSTIC, RARE & UNRELEASED TRACKS

Deas Vail to release new EP featuring 6 poetic and emotionally filled, acoustic, rare and unreleased tracks,  The Side Effect EP available digitally from Mono vs Stereo on June 26.

“We’re excited about “The Side Effect” EP as a compilation of songs that are special to us but haven’t had the attention they deserve. The Side Effect is one of our favorite songs from the self-titled recording sessions because we really stretched ourselves in it. We were able to create some great moments in that song. Although it didn’t fit into what we were doing on the self-titled album, we always hoped to release an EP anchored by that song. Unnatural Ceilings was almost the title of the self-titled album, but after multiple sequences for the record, it just didn’t fit into the final mix even though it’s a strong song for us. We’re proud to finally get these songs out to our fans.” Explains singer Wes Blaylock

Straight from the Deas Vail vault The Side Effect EP contains previously unreleased songs Unnatural Ceilings & The Side Effect, the rare recordings of Gone, Under Our Skin & All Eyes Are On You Now and an acoustic version of Sixteen.

The Side Effect EP is available at:

When Deas Vail formed in 2003, Blaylock says the goal was to back his own acoustic singer-songwriter project, with no bigger picture in mind than friends having fun. “We didn’t think we’d be doing it professionally years later,” he says. But three albums and three EPs later the band has proven themselves as a formidably tight unit. “The rapport and chemistry has gotten deeper,” he says. “We’ve gotten braver, we weren’t in any boxes and we could just do whatever we wanted. Be experimental and try different ideas, move forward and do new things. We’re still growing, still writing better songs.”

Deas Vail is: Wes Blaylock – Vocals, Keys, Laura Blaylock – Keys, Synth, Wes Saunders – Drums, Andy Moore- Guitar and Justin Froning – Bass.

Mono vs. Stereo, is a partnership between Gotee Records and Relient K.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.

Ever Eden

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.

Neck Deep

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
