Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – 25 January 2010 – The progressive rock project Vonassi was formed between the musical chemistry of Jeff Vaughn and Vince Buonassi. Born out of Chicago, IL in Fall of 2007, Vonassi began their first EP project as a musical experiment and exploration of their writing talents. It was apparent after that successful trial that a full album was essential and forthcoming. As that full album project unfolded, Vonassi added a permanent third member - Chase Carter (vocalist, guitarist). The result of this amazing collaboration has now become the unique sound of Vonassi. Their debut album entitled “The Battle of Ego” was completed in November of 2009 and is described as a powerful and ambitious musical statement in today’s progressive rock genre.
The band had this to say: “Vonassi is happy to announce that we have signed a record deal with ProgRock Records! We knew ProgRock Records was the right choice because of the amazing support and dedication that President Shawn Gordon offers. He shares our ultimate goal - get your music out there! We’d like to personally thank Shawn for this deal and we look forward to doing business with ProgRock Records.”
“I always enjoy finding new young bands that are doing something fresh and Vonassi was a nice surprise at the end of the year. These guys are a real joy to work with and their music reflects that.”, said Shawn Gordon, President of ProgRock Records.
”The Battle of Ego” is the new worldwide ProgRock Records release from Vonassi and can be found at http://www.progrockrecords.com/artists/view.php?id=126. The album will be released early February 2010 and available in stores on March 3, 2010 but is available for immediate pre-sale at a $2 discount.
