Vesuvius Joins Tragic Hero Records

Hailing from Ottawa, ON, Vesuvius is the latest addition to the ever growing Tragic Hero roster. Fans can get the first audible glimpse of the band’s new album with the single “Nurture” (listen below), which premiered today.

Vocalist Ben Cooligan explains that “This piece (“Nurture”) consumed more time than any musical endeavour we have taken part in and is the resolve of a very daunting past experience. It’s a song I wrote about discovering the ashes of somebody who afflicted me in a parental manner, and having to embrace the contrast between life and death at an incomprehensible age.” The lyrics definitely show not only strong emotions but also deep and interesting thoughts and the band doesn’t limit the depth to words alone.

Vocalist Billy Melsness adds, “Instrumentally, it’s probably the most collaborative, cohesive, compelling piece we have crafted thus far. We really took a few steps back on this track to appreciate the bigger picture of a well-written work of art that we can all be unanimously and undeniably proud of.”

Vesuvius also announced the release of their first full length album, My Place of Solace and Rest, will be on May 6th and is available now for pre-order. The band will tour in support of the album with details being announced soon.
