A Vital Message / Bio

AVM started its incarnation as a supergroup of 3 Florida bands in 2010. Mark(Vox/Bass) and Jake(Drums/Vox) had been playing in a band together since early in high school, and looked to take things more seriously once they got into college. Recruiting guitarist Steven Parsons and vocalist Jon Jordan allowed the new bands’ lineup and sound to develop by February 2011. The creative juices and desire to succeed have not faltered since, banging out two EPs and playing whatever shows they can get their hands on to promote and display their product.

In listening to an AVM release, you can expect to hear many things—dynamics, catchy melodies, pounding beats, and emotion, for example. You can hear the myriad of influences and impressions left on each band member in every song. In a few songs, the technical and brutal drum work by Jake Harding brings out the metal connoisseur in him. The sonically appealing and catchy vibes are felt in each song by bassist/vocalist Mark Faroudi’s influences as a more pop punk and hip hop specialist. Jon Jordan and Steven Parsons bring the heat somewhere in between, meshing the influences and ideas into a heavy, but dynamic, fresh, and listenable sound. In all, what can you expect to hear in an AVM release? Limitless potential.

The band believes they have the desire, talent, and endless creativity to change the music scene as the world knows it, and the “message” begins its rounds starting with their 2011 EP, DISTANCES.
