VersaEmerge has entered the studio to begin recording their new album. The band posted the following message to their website:

“Greetings earthlings!

We’re currently located in Los Angeles, California in the heart of Hollywood. Sunset blvd, 34° N, 118°W, in a building at The Crossroads of The World and we have finally begun recording our second full-length album with our “Dream Team” – producers Shaun Lopez (Deftones, Crosses) and Andrew Dawson (Kayne West, Lil Wayne). We always feel at home and the most inspired in LA, so inevitably we were drawn back here to find the perfect place with the right vibes to create this record. So here we are in an old set of cottage style bungalows, with the 1930’s still lingering around in the air. It’s insanely  perfect for us. This past year  we have been hugely influenced by retro-futurism, vintage outer space, and oddball classic movie soundtracks. The studio we are currently using as a hang and private work space is actually Orson Welles’s old office (Blake really geeked out on that one). Good vibrations around us, we can’t wait to hear how it plays out through the music.

We’ll meet you in the future.

•Much love•
Blake and Sierra

VersaEmerge”

Position: Former Web Editor HQ: Orlando, FL (soon to be Cleveland, OH) Nice to meet you! I'm Bryne Yancey, the former web editor for Alternative Press. Prior to joining AP full-time, I volunteered at Punknews.org and freelanced for Myspace Music and AP, writing reviews and such.  I enjoy 80s thrash metal, leather-jacket pop-punk, obscure 90s/2000s emo, contemporary crust-core, and plenty in between. I'm a big fan of pizza, nachos, dessert, sleeveless t-shirts, wearing shorts year-round, sunglasses, science fiction, dry humor, horror, the Florida Marlins, the Orlando Magic, the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Vinyl is great; Spotify is equally and differently great. Green Day's "Dookie," Bad Religion's "All Ages," and the Suicide Machines' "Battle Hymns" changed my life. I don't think our scene has ever been as exciting or promising as it is right now. Top ten albums OF ALL TIME (but in no particular order): Saves The Day - Stay What You Are Green Day - Warning Jimmy Eat World - Futures Snapcase - Designs For Automotion Hot Water Music - Caution Metallica - ...And Justice For All The Suicide Machines - Battle Hymns Bad Religion - The Process of Belief The Lawrence Arms - The Greatest Story Ever Told Descendents - ALL Twitter | Tumblr
