Deas Vail release digital EP, ready stripped down album

ART ROCK band Deas Vail have a self-titled album released in the US on 6th September. Producing the album is first-time producer, Relient K guitarist and Mono Vs Stereo A&R Matthew Hoopes. Said the band's vocalist We Blaylock, "All of our records sound very studio, so we kind of wanted to do something that sounded a little grittier and more stripped down. What you're going to hear is what you'll hear on stage. As for Matt, he's a longtime friend, and he was working with us in pre-production, and at a certain point, we said, 'You know what, Matt? You get this music more than anybody else. You understand exactly what we want to do and you have some pretty amazing tools to get it done.' We really took our time and had a blast making this record."

In the meantime Deas Vail have released a digital split EP with fellow Mono vs Stereo label-mates Farewell Flight. CR
