Alt Rock Band VISTA Playing LAUNCH Music Conference
After an eventful 2017 for alternative rock outfit VISTA, the band has announced that they will be playing at April’s LAUNCH Music Conference. Their set will fall on the first day of the conference, April 12th, on the Lanc City Square York College stage at 8:15 PM. Since the completion of “The Oasis Tour” in November 2017, VISTA has been in the studio with ZK Productions (Mayday Parade, Set It Off, Chapel) working on new material. The production duo, made of Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount, previously produced lead vocalist Hope Vista’s final solo EP in 2015. Although no official release timeline has been announced, the band has hinted that no new music will be dropping until later on this year. In 2017, VISTA released their highly anticipated sophomore EP “Long Live,” featuring the lead single “Allegiance,” played at Irving Plaza, gained idobi rotation with their single “Henchmen,” and completed two headlining tours.
An electronically-tinged alternative rock band, NY-based outfit VISTA originally formed in late 2015. Comprised of lead vocalist Hope Vista and guitarist Greg Almeida, the band combines both modern alternative rock and electronic influences to create their unique anthemic sound. VISTA released their debut 4-track EP “VERSUS” shortly after their original inception, in which their debut single “On The Brink” debuted worldwide on idobi radio. Their name hasn’t been shy in the press, since; the band has garnered praise from outlets such as Alternative Press, Rock Sound, Substream, and AXS. Since the start of 2017, VISTA has supported Fueled By Ramen artist Against The Current at Irving Plaza, gained idobi rotation with their single “Henchmen,” an anti-oppression anthem, and completed two headlining tours. Their most recent 7-track EP, "Long Live," containing the radio-friendly singles "Henchmen" and "Allegiance," lyrically centralizes around the theme of finding an oasis in a dystopian society. "Long Live" immediately made its’ way onto three different iTunes Alternative charts, including peaking at #10 on the top selling $5.99 albums, and sparked the completion of two promotional tours, in August and November, respectively. Most recently, VISTA completed recording new music with ZK Productions (Mayday Parade, Set It Off, Chapel), although no official release timeline has been announced.
