AABondyIf you don’t remember Verbena, don’t be too hard on yourself. Yes, they did release two major label albums (on Capitol records) and one on Merge Records between 1997 & 2003. Yes, they did get a little airtime on MTV and MTV2 back in 1999 with their video “Baby Got Shot.” But their albums sold quite poorly for a major label act and they were kind of dismissed as a ‘90s grunge/alt rock band that showed up a little too late to the party.

After Verbena broke up a few years ago, frontman Scott Bondy moved into the Catskills and left the music business behind. Last year, though, he got inspired to write again and recorded the results in a barn. Reverting back to his birth name, A.A. Bondy, he’s got an album’s worth of material ready that bares little to resemblance to his hard rockin’ past. The music on American Hearts is stripped down, contemplative and sad but hopeful. It will be officially released on September 18th. For a sample, you can download or stream “There’s A Reason.”
