Los Angeles based melodic rockers ABUSED ROMANCE have just premiered “Vaporize,” a new single from their forthcoming debut album, Shine. Like the album, “Vaporize” was produced by Justin Gray (Econoline Crush, INXS) and mixed by Randy Staub (U2, Alice In Chains). The band features Meir Yaniv (Vocals, Guitar), Amit Ofir (Guitar), Roy Chen (Drums) and Aetam Jakob (Bass). Amit (the guitar player in the band) and I grew up together and started playing guitar together at the age of 13.” Meir reveals. “Amit introduced me to Metallica, and from there I knew that creating and performing music is my calling. We formed our first band together at the age of 14 and co wrote songs. After becoming local L.A. club favorites, Abused Romance hooked up with Freeway Entertainment, which was formed by Russ Regan (former president of Motown Records), and general partner Kent Jacobs (Police, Kiss, Prince, REM) in August of 2009.
Abused Romance have also revealed a new slew of tour dates that find the band supporting veteran Florida hard rockers Nonpoint. “Abused Romance live is a whole different experience than listening to the album. It is an amazing energy and love exchange between us and the audience, because all we see is people’s physical reactions, we feed off of that and push it back to them constantly throughout the show. We’re as real, as powerful and as raw as we can possibly be onstage to create truthful moments with the crowd. It feels like it is our purpose in life when we are up there” offers guitarist Ofir.
The quartet will be releasing Shine, via Freeway Records/Universal Music Group, in the Fall.
