Eric and Sean from VERSE recently did a cool interview with the good people from Hardcore Collective.
Hardcore Collective commented:
So this interview has been a long time coming and honestly a goal of mine for quite some time. Verse has always been one of my favorite, yet motivational bands for me and has always meant a lot to me… as I am a sucker for melodic hardcore. So I was able to take a few hours in hanging out with these dudes after their show out in Pomona, California this past August and got to interview them on many aspects of the band, as well as clear the air with some topics people have arose with them since their breakup in 2009. Many people have formed their own views on this band due to their state of no longer being a straight edge band, but nevertheless their music has not taken a huge turn. Straight edge or not, we still back this band to the fullest. Be sure to pickup their new LP “Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace” off Bridge Nine Records and buy some merch at an upcoming show in support of these guys!
