Hailing from Seattle, WA, five-piece nu metal grunge band Versus formed in 2014, comprised of former band members in Lakeview Drive. The band utilizes their creative platform to spread a message of hope for individuals battling mental illness after first-hand losing someone significant to them. The band has made it their mission to help each and every person they come in contact with stating, “There isn’t an easy way out of the noise that can overcome your mind, but with understanding that there are a lot of us in the same boat we can fight mental illness with a network of support. We, as people, can be the medicine we all need.” The band continues, “we carry a very emotional performance that brings the show to an emotionally visible experience whether you are listening to the record or seeing it live. It’s very emotionally alive both ways.”

After teaming up with Outerloop Management to fine tune their sound and image, the band headed into the studio with veteran engineer, Casey Bates (Memphis May Fire, Chiodos, Pierce The Veil, A Skylit Drive) where they released The Black, a hard-hitting, hardcore rock-driven 5 track EP, in January 2016. Immediately following the release of The Black, the band hit the road with Affiance, XXI, It Lives It Breathes and Set To Stun followed by a full US run with A War Within and Convictions. Continuing their tumultuous year, the band inked a deal with Revival Recordings where they will debut their first full-length The Cardinal, out early 2017, comprising of “No Safety.”
