DOUBLE A-SIDE SINGLE ‘PARASITE / DO YOU KNOW ME?’ IMPACTS JUNE 1ST!
Pink 7” vinyl available on upcoming headline tour – includes two London shows at The Stillery on May 6th and 7th and The Great Escape Festival on May 16th
London-based alternative rock band VANT have delivered a short-sharp-shock of a double-bill with the release of their debut tracks ‘Parasite’ and ‘Do You Know Me?’.
The two tracks are released digitally from midnight on April 21st, and will also be available (exclusively at the band’s upcoming shows) on pink 7” vinyl issued through their own Dumb Blood Records label.
‘Parasite’ – a 1 minute and 26 seconds sonic assault –has already been making waves at radio and received three plays in one show courtesy of Radio 1. Second track ‘Do You Know Me?’ blends garage-rock attitude with scuzzy riffs and a flood of distorted melody.
Fronted by charismatic vocalist/guitarist Mattie Vant and completed by Henry Eastham (guitars / vocals), Billy Morris (bass) and Martin Söderin (drums), the band are currently on the road. Once this tour is completed, the plan is for the band to finish recording their debut album.
Musically VANT have been compared to The Pixies with echoes of Queens of the Stone Age, but frontman Mattie Vant takes influences from a vast spectrum of musical genres which are then all condensed into two-and-a-half-minute onslaughts.
