Check out comments from guitarist and singer Steve Zodiac and Steamhammer A&R Olly Hahn here.
“Reuniting after a 30 year hiatus was a leap in the dark, but the response has been tremendous. Terry, Joe and I have hit upon a creative chemistry that makes me as excited to be recording the 5th VARDIS album today as I was cutting our first demos in ’76. SPV/Steamhammer have a deserved reputation for high quality releases, but it was their passion for the future of Rock and Metal as well it’s heritage that meant they were the label we wanted to work with. Together we can push boundaries on the most heartfelt, hard-edged VARDIS record yet, with that same rock n roll spirit at the centre of everything we do.!”
“I am a child of the New Wave of British Metal and I remember well when I bought the “Quo Vardis” album back then. The band combined certain styles like Boogie, Glam and Hard Rock and created their own musical brand. I´m very proud that Steve and the band decided to sign with SPV/Steamhammer. The band is on fire and when you saw their gig at last years Keep It True festival in Germany you know what I mean!”
