The Maestro has been friends with VARNA for over three years now, and they truly embody what it means to be a hardworking, DIY band. Everything they’ve done has been on their own terms and never once have they kowtowed to industry pressure or compromised who they are and what they believe in. That’s why it is our pleasure here at A&GS to share their new (and HIGHEST CHARTING at #34 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Indicator!) single “Survival of the Fittest” with you right now.

About the track, the group says: “This song has definitely taken on a new meaning for us as a band. As human beings, we have the beautiful ability to stand up and overcome adversity in the face of whatever obstacle we may face. This is our call to action. It is about reaching out and finding something deep inside of yourself to keep going because when it comes down to it, we are all survivors.”
The new single, “Survival of the Fittest” charting at #34 tops off a year of profound accomplishments for the band.
From winning the “People’s Choice Award” at the 2016 North American Independent Rock Music Awards (NAIRMA), to headlining multiple regional festivals and the only sanctioned by Anne Rice- Vampire Lestat Fan Club’s Midnight in the Savage Garden of Blood and Evil Ball; VARNA caught some serious attention on and off airwaves this year as one of the only independent, female fronted rock bands with not one but TWO consecutively charting singles. Their previous track, “Living A Lie” premiered earlier this year with Revolver Magazine earning their debut on the Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Indicator while Survival Of The Fittest entered at it’s current position #34.
“This year has been unbelievable and amazing. We thank you so much from the bottom of our little dreamer hearts!” –VARNA.
