VISTA TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘ALLEGIANCE’ 5/19


Listen to the “Allegiance” preview

“Comparisons to bands like PVRIS and Paramore are likely inevitable but… VISTA are holding their own with ease and “Henchmen” is proof of that. The single is a big, anthemic, and energetic testament to what this band is capable of and we expect the potential to continue paying off as their name rises to the top; a beautiful view indeed.” – Substream

LONG ISLAND, NY | APRIL 28TH, 2017 – Coming off the release of their latest single “Henchmen,” VISTA continues to spread a message of unity with the announcement of the release of their upcoming single, “Allegiance,”on May 19th, 2017. Introducing listeners to a metaphorical black and blue color-schemed oasis, the band emits a powerful statement in the track, urging their audience to join their own allegiance. A continuation of their previous single, “Allegiance” highlights lead vocalist Hope Vista’s haunting vocals and her undeniable performance chemistry with guitarist and vocalist Greg Almeida. “Allegiance” will serve as the lead single off of their upcoming sophomore EP.

Coined one of Rock Sound’s “On The Radar” bands just months after their resurrection, VISTA was derived from the decade-long solo career of frontwoman Hope Vista. Rounded out with bold guitarist and vocalist Greg Almeida, the duo experiments with long-loved stadium influences to create and define a new, modern-day sub-genre in the alternative scene: anthem rock. VISTA most recently set out to write and record “Henchmen,” their first 2017 offering as a powerhouse single, written as an anthem for the oppressed. Since it’s release, the band has supported Fueled By Ramen artist Against The Current at Irving Plaza, been featured in 3 Alternative Press articles, sold out their first two headlining shows, and is in heavy rotation on idobi.
