Veio Prepares To Race The Sun in 2012

(Portland, Oregon) – 2012 marks the release of Veio's debut album, "Race The Sun", and the bands first full-length release promises to offer a transition of intensity and overall maturity that most bands don't achieve until three or four albums into the process. Cameron Byrd, Veio frontman and guitarist, explains the band's new direction and how their debut album differs from previous efforts:

"I am just excited to be putting out an album that is a full-length representation of this band. Our last record was more like a 4-song jam session," Byrd states. "The new stuff is strong and more of a creative rock mix versus the sound we originally developed. The old songs are very epic in length, very rhythmic, darker and more brooding, where as, in the new stuff our intensity explodes straight out of the gate. We now get to the choruses quicker and as a band we are focusing on a greater overall sense of intensity and vocal structure. The bass lines are now thicker and have more layers while the guitars are much, much bigger and drum-wise the technique is far more driven. I am very pleased with the new material and I think our fans will really feel as if they are a part of the effort put into the record."

Since Veio began in 2006, the accumulation of talent has spanned over four bands, three cities and a career that began professionally as young musicians in 1999. Brothers Cameron and Brett Byrd achieved what most young rock stars only dream of. In 2000, then titled MiNDFRaME, the young brothers from Camas, WA raised over $30,000 during a benefit concert after the passing of their mother. Through musical efforts the band eventually raised $500,000 overall for the Susan G. Komen For The Cure foundation, an organization raising money and awareness for breast cancer. The two then went on to perform live during an Oakland A's baseball game, Portland, Oregon's annual Rose Festival, and soon after came live performances on the Rosie O'Donnell show (2000) and NBC's Today Show (2001). The band was featured in the January 2003 edition of Family Circle Magazine and both Brett and Cameron received Prudential Spirit of Community awards in 2000 and 2001. MiNDFRaME eventually disbanded in 2003 and the brothers went on to complete college degrees before returning to music in 2006. It was then that Medford (Oregon) bassist Samuel Kinney, a former member of Timed Existence, came into the fold and Veio has been a continuous success story ever since. The current history includes several National act openings and the release of their 4- song EP "Victus Per Leo" in 2010, produced by Sean Norton (Dan Reed, Curtis Selgado, Sweety, DFive9). Veio has also made the decision in 2012 to add a second guitar player to "expand" their sound.

"Race The Sun" is produced and mixed by Sean Norton at Falcon Studios in Portland, OR.

Although it seems impossible to categorize rock these days, its safe to say that Veio is nothing less than rock and nothing more than experimental, maybe even alternative metal. A fitting title for a band often compared in intensity to the likes of Tool, 10 Years, and Ours.
