NEW YORK, NY | SEPTEMBER 21ST, 2018 – Electronic alt rock band VISTA are not anywhere near slowing down their momentum. Fresh off the completion of their third US tour, “The Bloodlust Tour,” multiple support dates with Set It Off, and a music video for their last single “Witch Hunt”, VISTA has officially released a new single, titled “Born For Blood,” out on all digital platforms NOW. Recorded and produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount of ZK Productions (Mayday Parade, Set It Off), “Born For Blood,” a wildly upbeat, distortion-laced, electronic-infused alternative rock track explores themes of hunger, determination, and empowerment. The stand-alone single is a true testament to VISTA’s evolution this year, filled with their signature layered vocals, gritty production, and raw passion.
“Born For Blood” will be the final release for their current EP cycle, and the band recently returned to the studio to begin working on their 3rd record. Prior to this release, they dropped their last single “Witch Hunt” in May, which quickly became the band’s most-streamed song on Spotify, racking up 72,000+ streams as of yet.
An electronically-tinged alternative rock band, NY-based outfit VISTA originally formed in late 2015. Comprised of lead vocalist Hope Vista and guitarist Greg Almeida, the band combines both modern alternative rock and electronic influences to create their unique anthemic sound. VISTA released their debut 4-track EP “VERSUS” shortly after their original inception, in which their debut single “On The Brink” debuted worldwide on idobi radio. Their name hasn’t been shy in the press, since; the band has garnered praise from outlets such as Alternative Press, Rock Sound, Substream, and AXS. Since the start of 2017, VISTA has supported Fueled By Ramen artist Against The Current at Irving Plaza, gained idobi rotation with their single “Henchmen,” an anti-oppression anthem, and completed two headlining tours.
Their most recent 7-track EP, “Long Live,” released in July 2017, lyrically centralizes around the theme of finding an oasis in a dystopian society. “Long Live” immediately made its’ way onto three different iTunes Alternative charts and sparked the completion of two promotional tours, in August and November, respectively.
Most recently in 2018, VISTA released their recent single “Witch Hunt” (produced by ZK Productions), completed their third US tour “The Bloodlust Tour,” played a date of the Vans Warped Tour in New York, played multiple September support dates with Set It Off (Fearless Records), “Witch Hunt” premiered worldwide on idobi radio, and quickly became their most-streamed song, garnering 70,000+ Spotify streams, and earned video rotation in Journeys’ stores nationwide. The final single of the Long Live EP cycle, “Born For Blood” is out on all digital platforms NOW.
