After wowing us in 2016 with their acclaimed release This Time Around, NJ rockers The Vansaders are gearing up to release their new EP, No Matter What, on August 11th, 2017. The Vansaders have teamed up once again with Pete Steinkopf of The Bouncing Souls at Little Eden Studios to produce a new 5 song EP that is an engaging blend of punk, rock and folk.
Hailing from Asbury Park, The Vansaders manage to encapsulate all of the influences of both the older Springsteen generation and the newer rock demographics. No Matter What is full of euphoric, energetic music that gets your blood pumping.
The EP opens with “Roll The Dice” which is an up-tempo track that engulfs you in a full rock n’ roll swing. Lead singer Doug Zambon’s vocals mesmerize the listener while the band’s instrumental talent is demonstrated throughout each song like on the triumphant track, “Hurtlin’.” The band’s second EP raises their own bar yet again.
The Vansaders have shared bills with Frank Turner, Social Distortion and Chuck Ragan, but most recently with Charles Bradley and The Specials at Punk Rock Bowling. Following their appearance at Punk Rock Bowling, The Vansaders will be playing an abundance of dates later this summer in the NJ/NYC/PHL area in support of No Matter What.
