Formed back in 2004, the story of The Veer Union is that of two longtime friends who have always shared a passion for music. Vocalist Crispin Earl and guitarist Eric Schreaeder have played in bands together their whole lives, and after a brief period of going their own ways the two regrouped in their hometown of Vancouver. “Borderline” is a track off of their upcoming album Divide the Blackened Sky, set for release on March 26.
Earl and Schreader’s love of music is what has always held their band together, even, as Crispin recalls, when “We were living out of rehersal studios in downtown East Vancouver.”
The Veer Union has seen the low, but recently they’ve been seeing the high. In 2009 they had a top 10 hit single with their song “Season,” off their debut album Against the Grain. The track peaked at #7 and became the theme song for 2009 Stanley Cup winners the Pittsburg Penguins (which, as you might imagine, in Canada is kind of a big deal).
Now they are looking to follow up on that success with Divide the Blackened Sky. Check them out this spring as they head out on tour.
