|Edward in Venice are from Pesaro, Italy. They’ve been playing explosive, shout-along hardcore since 2011; new EP ‘Empathy’ is their fourth release together. The band’s sound is quintessential screaming-fast melodic hardcore, with catchy melodies and a pinch of pop punk/emo thrown in.
“There was no deadline for ‘Empathy’,” explains singer, Filo Greganti. “There was no rush, which permitted us to perfect every single little thing in the music, artwork and videos, with the support of Lockjaw Records.”
Edward In Venicehave welcomed new guitarist Ivan Maioli to the band, who brought his own accent into the chaotic melodies that Edward In Venice is known for. This new addition and a relaxed and conscious approach to writing has enabled them to create a well-designed release.
Recording the EP was a collaborative affair, with the band working with to several producers to help record and engineer the album. The band recorded all the guitars themselves, while Riccardo Pasini from Studio73 in Ravenna, Italy, recorded the drums and Brendan Paolini recorded the vocals. Neil Kennedy from Ranch Studios was at the helm, producing, mixing and mastering the record.
They’ve completed several self-booked tours around mainland Europe, plus jaunts to the UK, Canada and Japan. They’ve supported incredible acts like Descendents, Flatliners, A Wilhelm Scream and Millencolin, as well as appearances at festivals like Groezrock, Punk Rock Holiday and Manchester Punk Festival.
The new EP, ‘Empathy’, is out on the 26thApril, 2019. Pre-orders with bundles are available now from the Lockjaw website: https://lockjawrecords.co.uk/edward-in-venice-empathy/
