In the summer of 2017, Canadian rock band Vogue Villains was. formed in the small city of Campbell River, BC. Set on making music that felt unique yet was not afraid to wear its influences on its sleeves, (Queens Of The Stone Age, Mother Mother, Billy Talent, Arctic Monkeys, Mini Mansions, Etc.) the band created a sound that is unmistakably and undeniably VV.
Taking an alt-rock stance, the Villains are also planted firmly in catchy melodies and multipart harmonies. Their live sound is big, dirty and full of raw energy, while also having a humorous stage presence that goes hand in hand with their tongue in cheek original music and lyrical sensibilities.
After returning from their spring 2019 multi-province tour, the boys hit the studio which soon led to the sophomore EP ‘Subglorious Songs for Subpar People’. Released on April 24th, 2020 the EP has already gained traction accumulating new fans, local rock radio play & dozens of playlist additions. After the temporary delay of 2020's touring schedule VV is spending their time writing the next album. The world will be getting a lot more villainous.
Vogue Villains is made up of four members: Andrew Baskin (Lead Vox, Bass), Lucas Antoni (Lead Vox, Guitar), Nate Cox (Drums, Vox) and Robert Johnston (Keyboard, Guitar, Vox).
“Vogue Villains perceptively offer everything you could ask for from a new up and coming Alt Rock artist”
"If you like to explore new sounds, if you like to discover new interesting and very special groups, I highly recommend you to listen to Vogue Villains because they deserve a lot."
