Love, Vices I Admire

We won a pretty arse-kickin' national competition!

We've won a pretty arse-kickin' national contest called Breaking the Band hosted by the company We Are Listening. You can check out our pretty mugs and a write up about it here. Needless to say, it's pretty exciting. They're still figuring out the exact prize package, but you can get a good idea of the hotness by clicking on this word. If you don't have the time, I'll paraphrase. We've won the help of promotion and distribution company Tinderbox Music. Their job is to launch a massive promotion campaign on our behalf in an effort to get us placement on College Radio, Television and in Film That's right, Vices I Admire could be the sound of The George Lopez Show! Yeah, I know, impressive. Seriously though, it's very cool and we are grateful for the opportunity. Have a great day, we will!

The Return of the Vice

Yes, yes, yes! The rumors you’ve heard about Vices I Admire are true! What, you haven’t heard the rumors? Well that’s just great, now we’ve got to fire our publicist. Worst use of four thousand dollars we’ve ever spent. I suppose we can give you the big news, right here, right now...

First off, we (Vices I Admire) would like to thank you for your patience. We know it’s been years since we’ve released an album and months since we’ve played live while searching for our new bass player. But the wait is over; Vices I Admire is once again a complete rocking machine hell-bent on making you move! Dan Battenhouse has joined Vices I Admire as their new bass player, and with him comes a return to the stage and new music for you!

The search for our new bassist was long, spanning over six months and twenty auditions. Many bassists could not handle the extreme nature of extremeness that is Vices I Admire and spontaneously combusted while auditioning. But one man, Dan Battenhouse, who has previously played for The Fray, survived the neurotic workings of our human music machine and was asked to join our group. We are now preparing to enter Colorado Sound Studios with JP Manza (engineer) and Ian Pinder (producer) to record our next album, The Politics of Apathy. Until then you can check us out live at Moe’s BBQ (3295 S. Broadway) in Denver on April 23rd and Hodi’s Halfnote (167 N. College Ave.) in Fort Collins on May 15th. Details below.

The Politics of Apathy will be released sometime ‘round September, but in the meantime we’ve got a preview for you! We’ve recorded, “Heartbreaker”, one of the songs that will be included on the record, in our basement studio. You can check out a streaming version of the track right now at http://www.myspace.com/vicesiadmire. Let us know what you think; we would love to hear your input!

Thanks a ton to every single bassist who replied to our ad and was exposed to the awkwardness that is VIA, we really appreciate it.

Come see us live next month and keep a watch out for our new album dropping this summer! We’ll see you in the real world!
