GOTHIC SUMMER is the newest album from The Veronica. Released on March 22, 2024. the sixth studio release marks a triumphant return for the duo, which showcases their signature sound while exploring exciting new territory, delivering a pop masterpiece with a stormy vein twisted through its track list.   In an interview with Rolling Stone, Jess said "The whole theme of Gothic Summer is that it's basically exploring social commentary on what we think is reality versus how we create our reality. It's a very metaphorical album."  And in an interview with Kyle Meredith, the duo reported that some songs had been influenced by bands like The B-52’s and The Cramps “[It’s] more of the music that we grew up listening to, rather than what you would expect The Veronicas to make for a radio song, if that makes sense.”

In Here To Dance, an infectious bassline opens... “We’re not gonna listen to that blah blah blah” they sing over an early Ke$ha-style synth. The bassline stays consistent throughout, keeping the energy up throughout the infectious track.



Named “the ultimate pop-punk duo of the mid-aughts” by Nylon, The Veronicas have long been recognized for their famed blueprint in songwriting and career of multi-platinum studio albums which expertly balance vulnerability with a bit of rebellion.


The hitmaking duo first emerged in 2005 with their now 4x ARIA-certified platinum, debut album The Secret Life of..., which featured hit singles such as "4ever" and "Everything I'm Not." In 2007, they released their critically acclaimed, sophomore album Hook Me Up, which lauded their first international top-ten hit "Untouched." After a hiatus, the duo returned with their self-titled third studio album in 2014.
