U.K. rockers, Veridian, have released their brand new EP, NoVella, today via Revival Recordings. The band signed with the label in the summer of 2019. When speaking of the excitement and meaning behind the EP, guitarist Robbie Everett stated, “We are thrilled to finally have the release of our 2nd EP on the horizon. The EP is named ‘NoVella’. It is a collection of 5 short stories. The songs stand independently and explore their own story and themes within them. The songs mean a lot to us as a band, they celebrate positivity and optimism – that often comes from being in a place of darkness to begin with. There can be no light at the end of the tunnel, if you’re not in a tunnel in the first place. This collection of songs captures the journey. We can’t wait to get back out on the road this week, play the new tracks and get the record out as far as possible.”
