The Slow Fade

Viva Voce are back with Rose City, an album they wrote, arranged, and recorded themselves all in one furious month — choosing not to deliberate over every little thing but living purely in the moment musically and lyrically. Immersing themselves in sonic experimentation, it was truly spontaneous and cathartic. The result is an angular, immediate record that pulses with the palpable urgency of a band yearning for a return to the vagabond life of the working, touring musician — a mode in which Viva Voce is truly at home.

How To Nurse A Bruised Ego Back To Health

Get yr blood sucked out is a markedly dark and sultry record, epic in scope and anything but simple in formulation. Anita's rock-god(dess) guitar excursions (she says she hopes this record makes people enjoy guitars again) and Kevin's thunderous drumming combine in an intense, empowering album. Get yr blood sucked out sums up the struggle to keep things innocent and pure in a world full of vampires waiting to suck the life out of you.
