“…the return of Verse to both touring and recording has reaped its most challenging disc to date” –

Providence, RI’s VERSE announced their reformation earlier this year, along with subsequent new album release. Titled, Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace, this new album is 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. Pre-order the album now at

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 near their hometown of Pawtucket, RI, with a special record release show scheduled for July 15th at The Met in Providence. Also featuring Soul Control (new EP, Bore Core, coming 7/31 from Bridge Nine), Give, and Holy Night, the show is set to start at 6pm and tickets can be purchased at or at Lupo’s and The Met box offices very soon. All previously purchased tickets for the show at Fete will be honored – bring your receipt/proof of purchase from the Fete show to the Met on July 15th.
