After last week’s release of the single If You Love Someone, by The Veronicas, twin sisters Jessica and Lisa Origliasso are set to release their eagerly awaited self-titled third album on 16th March. This follows last year’s single You Ruin Me which hit #8 in the UK charts in November.
For the twin sisters from Brisbane, Australia, The Veronicas represents a powerful, emotive and uncensored account of Jessica and Lisa’s journey over the past two years. Exploring the themes of love, life, power and personal rebirth, it exposes a raw vulnerability to the sisters, a side of the band which has previously been unseen, leading Jessica to comment “The challenging and inspiring aspects of creating this record, have allowed us the life experience and the creative freedom, to pave a path of our very own. It’s the greatest feeling knowing that once this album is heard, listeners will have experienced the missing pieces of Lisa and I from these past few years, to today. We are ready for our stories to be heard”
Written and recorded in Los Angeles, Nashville, New York and Sydney, The Veronicas collaborated with some of their most respected and admired producers, songwriters and artists, including, Nellee Hooper (The Smashing Pumpkins, U2, Bjork), Toby Gad (John Legend, Beyonce, One Direction), Billy Corgan, Emeli Sandé, and David Musumeci and Anthony Egizii of DNA Songs (Jessica Mauboy, Nathaniel, Justice Crew). You Ruin Me marked an incredible return to the forefront for The Veronicas, debuting at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart, holding the position for three consecutive weeks and achieving double platinum sales.
Since releasing their first single 4ever in 2005, The Veronicas have proven themselves to be international trailblazers for Australian music, attracting global attention and fans around the world. The Veronicas have cemented themselves as a force to be reckoned with, having sold over 3 million albums and singles worldwide, their massive chart-topping single Untouched broke into the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, making The Veronicas the first Australian act to achieve such a feat since Kylie Minogue’s Can’t Get You Out of My Head in 2001.
The Veronicas have spent the last two years travelling the world, writing and recording the album, which will be their first since Hook Me Up was released in 2007, going double platinum.
The Veronicas perform at Manchester Academy 2 on Sunday 8th March.
