VASA Reveal New Video + Tour Dates w/ POLY-MATH

18th October 2016

Glasgow post-rock quartet VASA have today revealed an atmospheric slow-motion video for ‘Burst’, the first track to be taken from their forthcoming double A-side single Burst Open, set for release on 29th October 2016 and available via bandcamp or through the Holy Roar Records online store.

The band have also just announced an additional run of UK tour dates for November with fellow progressive math-rock band Poly-Math following their recently revealed October tour. See below for full details.

“In terms of the video, we decided to do it ourselves, kind of in-keeping with the DIY aesthetic of this band” comments bassist John Niblock “It was shot by our Blaine and Niall (guitarist and drummer) and then edited by Blaine as well.”

“There’s no real cohesive story behind it, we just thought we’d have some fun doing some daft stuff on camera, although there are a couple of shots that are referencing real life such as Scott eating spare change which absolutely happened. To quote Blaine ‘It sums up our band: daft things in a pretty package’.”

Already picking up support from The iNewspaper, Vic Galloway at BBC Scotland, PROG Magazine, Arctic Drones, Punktastic and more, the new single is a timely reminder of just how fresh and vital a Scottish voice VASA are providing on the national circuit.

In the words of Vic Galloway; “you don’t often hear stuff like that on the radio, more’s the pity…like a post-rock Big Country on steroids!” and he couldn’t be more right. Chiming guitars and frantic rhythmic changes take on a familiar Celtic lilt as they dance and weave joyously together on this gem of a record that feels like a real celebration of both their heritage and the future of instrumental music. Absolutely magic.

‘Burst Open’ is released on 29th October 2016
