Vinnie Caruana will be releasing his new EP ‘Aging Frontman’ on October 4th via Know Hope Records (US) and Big Scary Monsters (Europe/UK). Ahead of its release, he has released his new single “Better” and announced a solo tour on which he will be playing an intimate set of I Am The Avalanche, The Movielife, and solo material.

About the EP, he stated:
“This is as personal as I’ve ever been with the listener. The people who listen to my music know me. I’ve personally met most of them at shows and we have a relationship. This is just another layer. I’m still looking for answers. We all are. We have to keep finding the beauty in life, no matter how hard life can sometimes make it for us. I want to keep being the best version of myself until I die.”

About the single, he stated:
“[It] is speaking to my friends, my family, my wife, the people that come to see me sing. In the end, when I have no more breath, have I brought joy? Have a made you proud? I’ve made so many mistakes in my life. We all have. I want to be doing everything right until I die, to begin to make up for the wrongs. I want to continue to grow and be there for you.”

The never-ending desire to find and hold on to beauty and peace of mind, despite the chaos and frequent ugliness of the world we all live in, is something that has always inspired Vinnie Caruana to write and perform music and to connect with his fans. His upcoming EP ‘Aging Frontman’ is without a doubt the finest distillation of that ethos and of his formidable talent as a singer/songwriter. It was produced, engineered, and mixed by Brett Romnes (who also played drums on the EP) at The Barber Shop Studios in New Jersey, and the artwork was done by Daniel Moraniel.

Renowned and long-beloved as a founding member of The Movielife and I Am The Avalanche, he clearly isn’t afraid of surprising his fans with this latest solo release. The six shimmering tracks reveal an artist fully committed to pushing the boundaries of artistic expectations, and, in choosing the title ‘Aging Frontman’, he sought to provide his listeners with a wry and very down-to-earth window into his frame of mind. Above all, the sentiment at the root of the EP is that despite all the challenges and setbacks that life deals any of us, he is committed to pushing himself creatively, to living fully, and to forging ahead. With the songs on ‘Aging Frontman’, Vinnie Caruana is inviting all of us to walk alongside him on his journey with his head held high regardless of whatever life tries to throw his way.
