Get To Know Vitruvia

Vitruvia has been igniting their territory around Southeast, PA. Playing sold out shows and touring the Northeast Coast, it is no secret they are rising their way to the top! Performing on selected tour dates with 40+ national acts such as August Burns Red, We Came As Romans, and I See Stars, has not been a mistake. Metalcore band "For Today's", Ryan Leitru, stated "Vitruvia does better then bands "For Today" tours with. Everything was very tight and harmonies were spot on", along with Altwire.net stating "Vitruvia's stage presence was astounding, showing better skills then major touring bands."

Changes are made in our lives daily. The best part about change is it opens new avenues to pursue and that is exactly what has come. New members, new gear, new sound.

Vitruvia is fronted by the vocal duo of Tanner Detweiler and Dana Hinnershitz, accompanied by Christian Howell on lead guitar and Jonathon Knauer on drums.

Vitruvia partnered with Greg Parker of Amped Recording (Gym Class Heroes, Emarosa, Everyone Dies in Utah), Jason Ruch of 0x1 Sound Studio (Metal Blade Records, Universal Records, Sony Records), and Jim Forbes of Clear Track Studios (AC/DC, Eminem, and Katie Perry) for their debut EP "Reborn" and single/cover of Justin Bieber and DJ SNAKE’s “Let Me Love You”, afterwards, working with Unable Music Group to make their music available world wide on countless digital retailers, including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and MANY MORE!

 

Vitruvia is a dynamic, hard-hitting, and inspiring American post-hardcore band based in Berks County, Pennsylvania. A fusion of punk, metal, alternative, and progressive rock, Vitruvia’s unique sound provides the perfect medley to get any audience going wild. With engaging and poignant lyrics, each song has intricate beats and catchy riffs that make on-stage performance one of their greatest priorities. Their message of perseverance and strength through life’s darkest times is sure to inspire a whole new generation.


Since their start in late 2009, the band has proven their resilience in the face of adversity and tragedy time and time again. The sudden loss of their second guitarist, Nathan Baker, to a fatal motorcycle accident in mid-2014 took a major toll on Vitruvia, both as individuals and as a band, causing them to think long about the road ahead. They realized they had to stand tall and keep going, a motif that shines through their music and their beliefs. Vitruvia went on tour that year despite their struggles as a three piece band, sharing their story with the world and touching hearts with their music. After returning home, the band brought on the eccentric Christian Howell, not to replace Nate, but to gain a new side to the band. After many tough lineup changes, Vitruvia is back in the studio with Tanner Detweiler on vocals/bass and Kevin Schlosser on drums, revitalized to push harder than ever before.

 

Vitruvia has shared the stage with the following national acts:

Escape the Fate (x2), August Burns Red, We Came As Romans, I See Stars (x2), Attila, Alesana, Our Last Night, Like Moths To Flames, Oh Sleeper, Hands Like Houses, The Color Morale, The Plot in You, Whitechapel, Fit For A King, For Today, Oceano, Slaughter to Prevail, Eyes Set to Kill, Disciple, Wednesday 13, Kissing Candice, Lorna Shore (x2), American Sin, It Lies Within, Widow Maker, Sinners Are Winners, Palisades, Famous Last Words, This Or The Apocalypse, Out Came The Wolves, Saving Abel, Just Like Gentlemen, I Am The Witness, Rivers Of Nihil, For The Win, Ashes Remain, Picture Perfect, Vanna, Superchick, Phinehas, Limbs, From Under The Willow, Carousal Kings, Fire From the Gods, Currents, White Collar Sideshow, The Nearly Deads, One Year Later, and Silversyde (x3). They were also a part of The Extreme Tour, one of the world's largest tours, travelling up and down the Northern East Coast for a short time. Vitruvia plans to leave a bigger mark in 2019 with the hopes of releasing their first full length album.

 

“Music plays a big part in our lives. If we are going to live by what we listen to, then why not make it positive and uplifting? We do not need negative messages telling us to do things. We need positive messages to uplift us and bring something to everyone's heart. Who can offer this? We can.
We push for a better world” -Vitruvia
