Newly reformed hardcore band VERSE announced today that their highly-anticipated fourth album, titled Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace will be available in stores and online from Bridge Nine Records on July 17th, 2012. This album, much like VERSE's previous efforts, will be musically dynamic and lyrically poignant, focusing on a storyline that is "…completely human. The concept is set of life lessons shown to us by the life of a universal mother to all, wrapped in uncertainty and contradiction, and personal firsthand accounts of struggles of family and friends throughout my life", vocalist/lyricst Sean Murphy said. Recorded at Machines With Magnets in Pawtucket, RI in March, Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace is VERSE's best work yet.

After announcing just about two years ago that VERSE would disband, the members regrouped in late 2011 and made the decision to give it another go. Upon completion of recording Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace, VERSE headed overseas for a wildly successful appearance at Groezrock festival, with plans to tour Westward and overseas this coming summer. Before that, though, the band will celebrate the release of Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace in their hometown of Providence, RI, with a special record release show scheduled for Saturday, July 14th in the Fête Ballroom with labelmates Soul Control and other special guests to be announced. Tickets will be available at the box office and online here, and you can find a continuous stream of news about the show here: http://www.facebook.com/events/109866065816582/.

New songs and pre-orders will be announced this summer. In the meantime, check out VERSE music & merch at B9Store.com/Verse.
