Vended reveal ‘The Far Side’ single, prep UK tour

Des Moines-based firebrands, VENDED have revealed another new single, ‘The Far Side’, set for release on 14th March. Listen/save here.

VENDED’s frontman Griffin Taylor tells us:

“‘The Far Side’ shows another side of VENDED that hasn’t been seen before. The focus of this song was pushing our boundaries and abilities to the limit. ‘The Far Side’ represents a new era of the band; a new level of aggression and rawness.

It was recorded live in the studio, nothing but raw power and pure energy in the room. It fully encapsulates the intensity you would hear in a live setting. Whether you’re seeing us in a club or an arena, the energy you hear live was put directly into this record”

‘The Far Side’ follows the release of previous single, ‘Am I The Only One’. the video for which has now racked up over half a million views on YouTube.

The hotly tipped 5-piece’s debut EP, ‘What Is It / Kill It’, arrived at DSPs in late 2021, garnering international critical acclaim. The following touring cycle saw the band open the day’s proceedings at the massive KNOTFEST LOS ANGELES event at Banc Of California Stadium, playing alongside SLIPKNOT, BRING ME THE HORIZON, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, FEVER 333, CODE ORANGE and CHERRY BOMBS. The band then went on to charm European stages across the Summer of 2022, including Bloodstock Festival in the UK, where they shot their live video for ‘Ded To Me’.

More recently, VENDED won Nik Nocturnal’s award for ‘Breakthrough Band Of The Year’, marking a colossally successful 2023 in triumphant style.

VENDED‘s fresh and furious sound heralds a new era of heavy music and the arrival of the next generation of brutality. Formed in February 2018 by Cole Espeland (lead guitar), Griffin Taylor (vocals), Simon Crahan (drums), Jeremiah Pugh (bass) and Connor Grodzicki (rhythm guitar), VENDED showcase a barbarous sound built on foundations laid by the power and precision of the rhythm section, layered with vicious guitars, soul crushing solos and guttural-yet-melodic vocals portraying the hardships and harsh realities of life.
