    pi·o·neer (noun) – one who ventures into unknown or unclaimed territory to settle.

     
    The above definition is fitting for the hard-working, Indianapolis-based quintet.
     
    Formerly known as News from Verona, Pioneer has worked hard to develop artistically honest and innovative music in an age where gimmicks and auto-tune saturate a dying market. Now, with the backing of Slōspeak Records, they’re getting ready for the 2012 release of their self-titled full length. With the new release will come a tireless touring schedule -including a supporting slot on Manic Drive’s upcoming “Epic” Winter Tour.
     
    Their goal? Connect with as many individuals as possible, while making friends along the way. “Once we began touring nationally, we made sure to bring that local mentality of connection to everyone, no matter where we were. We believe that this action is as signature to our name as our brand of music,” says Chad Shirrel (vocals/guitar).
     
    With the writing of this new LP, the band pushed themselves into new territory -growing as musicians, songwriters and individuals. “The music was more relevant to us than ever. It made us feel older and wiser, but also made us feel the need to shed off our younger skin,” Chad continues. “There was a definite need to better define who we were as people, while still carrying on the exact foundation that NFV was built on.” The band chose to record with Mark Townsend (Relient K, The Wedding) in his studio outside of Nashville, seeking a producer who would stretch the band to their potential. “I think we all worked hard to challenge ourselves and to push beyond what was comfortable or easy for us and to make something we’re all proud of,” Townsend recalls. “The band has a lot of youthful energy and we kept all of that intact while stretching the boundaries past that point.” The results were far greater than anyone could have imagined.
     
    With new music, a new name and a handful of tours on the way, Pioneer is ready to venture into the unknown and claim their territory in the rock music scene. “We’re just a bunch of Midwest boys that want to play rock ‘n roll,” says drummer Dan Voris. “That’s kind of the vibe we want to float on.”
