Ascending South Coast metallers DEFERENCE and Londoners VANITY have together
pooled their formidable talents to craft an engrossing split EP, entitled
Condemned To Repeat, out on Friday 26th April. Featuring two tracks from
each band, the EP is a collaboration in which each act has invited the other
vocalists to share vocal duties. DEFERENCE have just revealed the video for
Burial, taken from the EP, which features Kerrie & Ryan from VANITY. Watch
the video, here – .

Also, VANITY have released
an explosive video for the track, Humane, which features Rob & Matt from
Deference – .

Londoners VANITY were originally formed in 2012 under the guise Vanity Draws
Blood. In 2016/17, the quintet released Perspective//Dread and
Perspective//Empathy. Both releases not only solidified the band’s sound and
reach, but also pushed the fivesome to new heights, taking their emotive
metal through most of Europe and Russia alongside the likes of We Came As
Romans, Chelsea Grin, Thy Art Is Murder, Black Tongue and I Killed The Prom

DEFERENCE come at you from Southampton and evoke favourable comparisons to
progressive metal acts such as In Hearts Wake, Architects, and Northlane.
Dispatching emotive vocals with hard-hitting riffs, the exciting melodic
metal outfit have recently been wooing audiences throughout the UK and
mainland Europe playing shows with everyone from Bless The Fall, Miss May I,
Fit For A King, Currents and Rolo Tomassi to Napoleon.

Luke (guitarist from Vanity) elaborates about the EP project: “Rob and Matt
from Deference put forward the idea of a collaboration towards the end of
2017. We decided against creating a hybrid band between the two but wanted
to focus more on the initial project of creating music as a collective. It
was a great experience and it was enlightening to learn from one another.”

Both bands head out on tour together in March to support this release, as
well as broadcasting a live session which goes out via their YouTube
channels. This release is truly special and ideally showcases two cutting
edge artists that are right at the top of their game.

DEFERENCE & VANITY LIVE: 25-03: Manchester Rebellion; 26-03: London The
Unicorn; 27-03: Brighton Quadrant; 29-03: Southampton Suburbia.
