SAVING VICE RELEASE VIDEO FOR “NERVE DAMAGE”: WATCH
Independent Vermont metalcore band SAVING VICE – Tyler Small (vocals), Chase Papariello (vocals), Robbie Litchfield (guitar), Kenjamin Smiertelny (bass), and Sam Whelton (drums)- just released a video for “Nerve Damage”, the 4th track off of their debut record Hello There as part of their efforts to commemorate the 1st year anniversary of the record.
The video for “Nerve Damage” is an animated video drawn in an anime style by Billy Barber of DeadEyesArt. Tyler Small describes the track as being about “escaping people who hold you back or poison your life”. The video shows that well and the band hopes it gives people the strength to walk out of toxic relationships.
The record itself is a journey through facing and overcoming your own demons, anxiety, depression, and heartbreak in the many forms it takes. Each track feels and sounds different and will relate to a different person’s experiences. Their debut effort was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Randy Pasquarella of Pasquarella Recordings (If I Were You, Currents).
Since their official start in 2017, Saving Vice has been taking the New England music scene by storm. Their debut full-length record Hello There has already received over 1 million streams on Spotify to date and earned them a spot on an Alternative Press article as one of the “20 Debut Albums That Took Metalcore To The Next Level In 2020”. In this short time, they have also been able to play on a handful of festivals such as the Vans Warped Tour, iMatter Festival, and Heavy Fest sharing the stage with a lot of impressive acts in the scene such as Like Moths To Flames and The Plot In You to name a few. Their track “The Spire” from their Binary EP earned them a spot on Spotify’s “New Blood” playlist.
