It is May 20th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
This week we are excited to give the next spot to a band that has blown me away since I discovered them back in early November of 2011.
To be honest I cannot even remember how I first ran across Aria. It may have been their Facebook page, with now over nine thousand 'likes', or, it may have been their music video for their first single, Escaping the Transience, now nearing twenty thousand views on Youtube. Either way, this is definitely a band I am glad I discovered. So, we are happy to say that Aria's latest single, Purgatory, has taken the spot this week for 'Song of the Week'.
Bianca Dyrland (vocals), Anthony James (guitar), Damian Birdsey (guitar), Nick Baskerville (bass) and Malcolm Sanderson (drums), also known as Aria, are the five talented, young adults you will want to follow.
Aria released their first self-titled EP back on December 10th 2010. And, with five absolutely amazing tracks, and nothing but positive reviews, it is quite obvious by now that they know exactly what they are doing.
Starting in 2009, Aria has already been involved in some pretty amazing events such as Kitchener, Ontario's annual KOI Music Festival, among many others. So, it is no surprise that back in December of 2011 fans chose them as 'Band of the Month' on our official website as well.
As if that was not exciting enough, Aria just announced that their new [full length] album is set to be released on July 17th 2012. So, if you are as addicted as I am, the next fifty eight days are going to go by very slowly…
We Are All Prisoners is the name of their upcoming album and the five just released a music video for their first single, Purgatory. And, like all their releases, the video is incredible, once again making us excited to name Purgatory the 'Song of the Week'.
So, as I always say, check out Aria and definitely watch out for these five as they continue to take over the music scene. It is no doubt that they have already blown away thousands, if not more, and with the release of their new album things can only continue to rapidly grow for this very talented band.
Make sure you check out the brand new music video for their first single, Purgatory, found on their Youtube Channel, here:
Check back next Sunday when we announce the next artist or band to take a 'Song of the Week' spot. However, until then, definitely check out Aria's music video and get stoked for their newest release in July.
