Influenced by the epic and futuristic sounds of Muse, progressive elements of bands like Biffy Clyro, and the driving alt-rock of Foo Fighters – Vianova writes massive songs meant to be felt both lyrically and musically. The band is exclusively releasing singles (for now), allowing them to quickly mold their sound to different styles and influences in their music.
Vianova began to take shape in the winter of 2013 when long-time friends Eric Morgan (Guitar & Vocals) and Diego Villasmil (Bass & Vocals) decided to branch off from their previous band, Antaean. After working on several demos, they finally brought “Tie It Down” and “The Fall” into John Schwab Recording Studios, where they worked with Producer and Head Engineer Colin Coffey. Originally intended to be a studio project, the band worked their first two singles with other local musicians (Adam Gilbert – Starset, Brian McGuckin and Jef Shaffer – The Lovebenders). In the summer of 2014, Andrew Kissel (Drums) was introduced to the band through a mutual friend, solidifying the lineup.
In 2015 Vianova had their 2 most recent singles “A Night with Evelyn” and “Into the Night” featured on 99.7 the Blitz, and on July 1st the band performed their debut show at Skully’s Music Diner to a crowd of over 100 people on a Wednesday night.
Starting 2016 the band did its first 3-stop tour, playing venues in Indianapolis and Cincinnati. This same year Vianova was invited to the first Local Stuff Showcase hosted by 99.7 The Blitz featuring Novallo, New Haven and Ever Burning Bright. More recently the band won the CD1025 Day local contest, granting them to play to a sold-out crowd at Express Live! next to internationals acts such as The Kills and The Joy Formidable.
