Vaughanstrosity ‘Memes And Dreams’ EP, out Fri 27th January



Exciting newcomer, VAUGHANSTROSITY, continues his climb with the release of his debut EP, Memes And Dreams, which is out on Friday 27th January 2023. Before then, a stunning new single and video, Friday Night, will land on Friday 20th January.

VAUGHANSTROSITY is the solo project of Ruaidhri Houston. Although VAUGHANSTROSITY is a new endeavor, Houston has cut his teeth playing with a raft of up-and-coming bands, and more recently as bassist for highly praised Belfast shock rockers, So Long Until The Séance.

Having strong musicianship, an assiduous spirit, a passion for living it up, and a robust independent drive, it was unavoidable that Ruaidhri would eventually create his very own project, and VAUGHANSTROSITY is the ideal vehicle for his artistic talents. Drawing inspiration from many areas of media, from graphic novels and inane movies, through to the musical ventures of everyone from Don Broco and Devin Townsend to Shaina Twain and Kasbo, VAUGHANSTROSITY, as you can see, is something entirely unique.

Since the project’s formation in 2021, concentrated production on fashioning songs and structures led VAUGHANSTROSITY to start work on a new debut EP, Memes And Dreams. Now fully completed and set for the general public, the EP was recorded at JSR in Belfast, and features the ever-gifted Brett Martin of Nømadus on drums, and good friend Ethan Beatie from EB and The Deadlights, providing a hand for the vocal duties on the track, When The Party Ends. These contributions help to widen the depth of the release, boosting the already formidable songwriting and craftiness on display. Ruaidhri comments about the project: “After ages of playing in bands and writing, I decided to strike out on my own in the hope of creating a new wave of party metal. I’m looking to navigate the metal seas to find home on an unclaimed patch of land.” If you’re looking for something that’s distinctive and unique, you need VAUGHANSTROSITY in your life.
