BRIT NEWCOMERS UNVEIL NEW EP PLANS!
UK riff-slingers VILLAINOUS unleash their engulfing self-titled debut EP on
Wednesday 10th October via all platforms.
Bursting out of Brighton, newcomers VILLAINOUS, fuse together a towering
sound pulling from the rampant power of Mastodon and Lamb Of God, the guile
of the Deftones and Alice In Chains, and the proggy intrigue of Tool. The
South Coast heavyweights are comprised of Sean Stakim (Vocals), Neil
MacCallum (Guitar/Vocals), Nick Read (Bass/Vocals), and Callum Armitage
(Drums) and pack together a heady mix of groove-driven drop-tuned riffs with
expansive choruses and compelling multiple vocals lines.
Formed in late 2017, the enterprising quartet soon amassed a strong set and
have just completed work on their self-titled EP, which is set to land this
October. The band comment about the release: “The EP represents three
characters in a different state of acceptance of their own existence. One is
someone who has given in and allowed themselves to be shaped and moulded by
their surroundings, one reflects on the time they have wasted but asks for
more when aware of their impending death, and one refuses to be a product of
their environment, revelling in the chaos that they have been born into.”.
VILLAINOUS have a series of shows in the works for the Autumn and are
planning a host of releases and tours for 2019.
