Alt-rock quartet VERSIVE are thrilled to release their new single ‘Blind’, out now via Scylla Records.
The single was produced by Four Year Strong‘s Alan Day after Versive toured with the band earlier this year.
“This song is intended as a bit of a takedown of people who blindly believe in anything at the expense of facts and empathy,” the band explain. “Primarily with regard to religion and faith – but it could just as easily apply to media, politics, or any area of life where people are happy to remain wilfully ignorant of the reality that surrounds them. People who are so caught up in their beliefs they fail to think of how their actions and outlook impact others. We’re all struggling in life. The world is a bit of a mess. The stories we tell ourselves can seem like the perfect escape. And sure, if it’s something small that helps to you get through the day, then fine, but these things can have a ripple effect. Ignoring real world issues in favour of lies and fairytales isn’t helping anyone – it’s actively making things worse.”

Versive are formed of ex-members of Jody Has A Hitlist, The Upgrades, Downhill and All It’s Worth; their sound is grittier than their previous rock ventures, making comparisons to the likes of Four Year Strong and Basement.
The band plan to fly Stateside later this year to record their debut full-length with Alan Day atWachusett Recordings in Massachusetts – keep your eyes peeled for further details.
