Biography

Vanna is a band from Boston, Massachusetts. They formed in December 2004 with Evan Pharmakis and Nick Lambert and recorded their first demo in a dorm room at MassArt using a drum Machine. Soon they recruited drummer Brandon Davis (who at the time was playing guitar for the band Therefore I Am), bassist Shawn Marquis, and vocalist Joe Bragel.

They then recorded and self released their first EP, This Will Be Our Little Secret. The six song EP quickly helped the band gain a strong local fan base. It was this EP that helped them get noticed and on November 15, 2005, the band was signed to Epitaph Records. In March 2006, they released a split vinyl EP with Therefore I Am; only 500 copies were pressed.

They then began recording their Epitaph debut, but due to personal reasons Vanna and vocalist Joe Bragel decided to part ways. After the departure of Joe, they recruited Chris Preece to fill in the vocal spot. For various legal reasons Chris could not do the vocal parts, so Nick and Evan did the vocals on the record. The The Search Party Never Came EP was released June 6, 2006. After its release, the band toured for the whole summer and into the fall and on October 25th, they traveled to Seattle, Washington to record their first full length album with Producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Norma Jean, The Fall of Troy, Pearl Jam). They recorded through November and up until December 19. After coming home they took the month of January off and in February began touring again with The Esoteric and playing a few Dates on the 2007 Epitaph Tour.
