Del Venicci's Haunted Hall out February 25 on Prima Satisfaction

Del Venicci is an Atlanta underground DIY scene supergroup of sorts, with a heavy influence from the Italian-American backgrounds of the two principle members. 

The band is made up of Grace Bellury (Lille), Ross Politi (Carnivores), Jonathan Merenivitch (Janelle Monae, Dog Bite, Bosco) and Tyler Waters (The Clap.) Both Ross and Grace are grandchildren of Italian opera singers, and speak often to how this influenced the retro-Italian aesthetic they're after. Politi's father (who is first generation Italo-American) grew up singing doo-wop on street corners in the Italian neighborhoods of Brooklyn during the 1950's. Politi's father would also go on to perform professionally with certain incarnations of acts such as the Del Vikings, Chaperones, and Mello Kings. According to family lore, Bellury's great grandfather was involved with the mafia and was forced to flee Italy after things turned sour. The track "Contagion" was recorded by Dan Wakefield of Lotus Plaza and features Frankie Broyles of Deerhunter on guest vocals.
