This noisy trio formed in early 2010 amidst the cultural turbidity of San Antonio, TX. In a city proud of its accordion players, Tex-Mex, metal, genres ending in -billy, and bands with Spanish names, Vanity Press stand apart from San Antonio's musical culture by virtue of their influences and vision.
Considered San Antonio's only "shoegaze" band (local radio stations even accuse them of being British), they immerse pop hooks and pounding drums in fuzzy depths of distortion and reverb. They've been dubbed the "loudest band in San Antonio" and round out live shows with guitar-kicking, drink-dropping onstage antics that invariably place them at the end of every bill.
Influenced by 80s alternatives and 90s experimentalism, Vanity Press add their unique love of Lethal Weapon and mind-altering stimulants to create a wash of noise that makes most San Antonians turn their heads in disgust or an inability to comprehend.
