hey now! it's the campfire vendetta, an honest acoustic outfit without bells or whistles, writing simple little ditties that make you want to tap your toes, clap your hands, kiss your lover and sing-a-long. formed back in 2009 the group started as just myself (davey b.) and mark my old pal and former drummer for cutthroat as an acoustic only project. after hashing out several ideas over the phone with mark for months i returned to colorado to make it a reality. when i arrived we had different visions for how to start the project and i was offered a spot in novus folium that i had to take and the project went on hiatus before it ever really began. i had several songs tracked with van (former novus folium guitar player) at his home studio but once we saw success the project was put on the backburner. two years later a promoter organizing a local acoustic show inquired about the sleepy project and shook it up from its slumber as i enlisted my other new leaf and cutthroat pal aaron (guitar) to take up percussion and backing vocals. a good performance served as a catalyst for finishing the tracks in van's basement and the release of the self-titled debut album in 2011. with aaron, van and myself finding ourselves as free agents as of spring 2012 the project is back in the studio working on a follow up album to be released in the summer of 2012. the band hopes to expand on its denver presence for the remainder of the year while finishing the album and touring to support the record in the spring and summer of 2013.
