Night Verses Sign With Will Putney’s New Label, Enter Studio With Ross Robinson


Night Verses are the first signing to Graphic Nature Records—a new Equal Vision imprint label run by Will Putney. Putney is well known for his production work, as well as his role as the guitarist in Fit For An Autopsy. The group are currently in the studio tracking their sophomore album with producer Ross Robinson (Slipknot, Korn) with Putney due to mix it. Night Verses vocalist Douglas Robinson said of working with the notoriously intense Robinson:

“We met up about a year ago with Ross and discussed what we valued in music, how we pictured the record sounding, and the overall importance of an album carrying an undeniable vibe from start to finish. He spoke with such a genuine tone and at times seemed to understand what we wanted more clearly than we did, giving us awesome suggestions on approach and the recording process. It just felt right.

The combination of Ross‘ unquestionable creativity and experience coupled with Will‘s studio expertise made it an easy decision. It’s the perfect team to help bring this next release to its full potential, sonically and spiritually. We’ve spent about two years consistently composing new material for this record. Forty demos later, we’re anxious to see how these songs transform once Ross and Will step in and sincerely excited to see what we learn in the process.”

Putney will be handling the mixing of the album, which is to come out in 2016. Putney also commented on launching the new label venture, adding:

“I’ve been fortunate enough to have a career in the music industry where I’m able to help develop younger up and coming artists as a record producer. I’ve also come to realize there’s a hole that exists for bands that are a bit less “standard”. More often than not, labels are weary of taking risks on bands who don’t fit a certain sound or mold. Graphic Nature Records is founded on this idea, to provide an outlet for interesting and unique bands to release their work. It’s a more artistic approach to record making and releasing.

Dan Sandshaw and Equal Vision Records have steered the ship in this world for as long as I can remember. From Circa Survive, Coheed and Cambria, The Dear Hunter, Codeseven, all the way back to the days of Drowningman, Sick of It All, and Burn, they’ve constantly pushed forward exciting and genre-defining bands. Being able to operate as an imprint of EVR has given Graphic Nature the opportunity to hopefully continue this tradition of cultivating important records.”
