One of hard rock's most promising new bands, Venrez, is gearing up to return soon, with their latest release, 'American Illusion,' on Tuesday, July 30th, 2013. Comprised of singer Steven Berez (whose last syllables of his first and last name serve as the group’s name), guitarists Jason Womack and Alex Kane, bassist Michael Bradford, and drummer Ed Davis, the Los Angeles-based group is ready to take it to the next level, as evidenced by the album's forthcoming single, "Unforeseen."

"'Unforeseen,'" states the group's leader, nearly as recognized for his striking resemblance to Howard Stern as for his rock n roll, "Is my favorite track on the LP. It's brutally heavy and demanding to play right. It's At the Drive In meets Alice in Chains, and really reflects the experiences we've had touring the world together. It's about a guy we met backstage on tour in France, Phillippe. He was so wasted but so happy too. He was all about embracing the moment maybe more than anyone I've ever met, and inspired me to put pen to paper.  He did ultimately get kicked out of the venue for crapping in the sink of the women's toilet…but who hasn't at least once?!"

On Tuesday, June 11th, a striking video for "Unforeseen" will be issued, which was directed by Natalie Bible.

To check out this clip and to purchase the tune (available on Tuesday, June 18th), follow the following links:

Other standouts include the heavy rocker "Vultures," as well as a surprise remake of Sonny Bono's "The Beat Goes On."

Thus far, Venrez has opened shows for shock rock legend Alice Cooper, and has received praise for their debut full-length, 2012's 'Sell the Lie,' of which the Celebrity CafĂ© website reviewed and praised the band, saying "Venrez is doing something different with their music, and they’re doing it well. It’s a refreshing throwback to earlier rock and roll musical eras."

And come this summer, Venrez will rock the world with 'American Illusion.'
