A band a day...The Veer Union

Straight out of Canuckistan, The Veer Union is set to take over America and the world. Originally known simply as "Veer", their debut album Time to Break the Spell caught the attention of Universal A&R's and within a matter of months, they were signed to Universal Motown Records and recording their debut.

Their debut is being produced by Greg Archilla (Matchbox 20) and being mixed by Randy Staub (Metallica, Three Days Grace).

The Veer Union is:
Crispin: Vocals
Eric: Guitar/Vocals
Fid: Guitar
Roots: Bass
Neil: Drums

Take the vocals of Lajon Witherspoon, the catchy lyrics of Three Days Grace, and the accessibility of Nickelback and Daughtry and you've got The Veer Union.

These guys have soaring choruses, great harmony, and the potential to be huge.

They have a dual-vocal thing going on between Crispin and Eric. They play off of each other's vocals so well.

Plus, they actually had the balls to cover Rihanna's Umbrella. And well, too!

Any band that can do that deserves my respect and it deserves yours, too.

Here are videos for Over Me and Youth of Yesterday.

If you're not completely sold on them live, here's a live version of See Right Through You.
