Been a while...  

Hey!

Haven't posted on here in a long time...

So what have I been up to?

I put together a recording studio to finally get our next batch of songs out to you. The first single is piping hot out of the proverbial oven, and I'm just putting the final touches of parsley on the plate before I send it into the dining room!

It was mastered at Abbey Road and sounds awesome! Geoff Pesche worked on it, look him up and check out some of the other songs he's worked on. 

Big thanks to everyone for being so patient! I promise the new music is well worth the wait. 

I will let you know when it's online!

HERE ARE THE CHORDS TO EVERY SONG ON OUR ALBUM! 

Just thought I'd throw a tidbit up here, this is every chord progression on the album! Please take note, I didn't put any of the timing on there, just what notes change to what.

I will post tabs when I find some time as well.

It would be awesome to see you all posting covers of your favorite VM song! If you make one and I like it, I will post it on our website and Facebook page!
Anyway, here you go. Enjoy!

Music Video and merch! 

Happy 2012! Hope the holidays were good to everybody.

We are kicking off the new year with lots of new merch! Check it out in our store, we have hats, necklaces, and more cool stuff on the way. Custom embroidery will be available tomorrow! Pick any article of clothing and we can get it embroidered with our logo for you.  ;)

We will be shooting a music video in March! Details to come soon.

We would also like to thank our newest sponsor, Pork Pie Drums! You will be able to see us rocking their gear at a live show soon.

I also uploaded a couple of videos from behind the scenes at our Hawaii Theater gig with Owl City! You can find it in the Photos/Vids section.

Hope to see you guys at the show at Champions sports bar on the 8th! It's a fundraiser, so, you know. Good cause.

Update 

 So the year is almost finished, and what a year it has been! We played our first show almost exactly a year ago at Pipeline, opening for The Posies. Since then we have recorded and released an album and opened for Owl City and Everclear. We have been accepted into Pandora and we are working on getting our music on their website within the next few months. iTunes and all the others are on the way as well. 

In the meantime we have been working on new songs, and getting excited about the NEXT album and possible tours in 2012! 

Thanks for checking in, I will have some Everclear and Owl City footage posted up in the next few weeks.
