Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace, 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/lyricist Sean Murphy said.
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. The band had their first show back in February at AS220 in Providence, RI, with friends and labelmates Defeater and Soul Control, which was wildly received. Upon completion of recording Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace, Verse will head overseas to hit Groezrock Festival in Belgium, and has plans to hit the West Coast later this summer, as well as a European tour with Soul Control in July and August. Plans to hit South America, Japan, and Australia are also in the works for later this year, following the release of Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace.
