Vended Drop Ferocious New Single, "The Far Side"

Vended Drop Ferocious New Single, "The Far Side"

- By Ramon Gonzales

Watch the Derek Rathbun-directed clip and get the details on the band's upcoming EU/UK tour with Gloom in the Corner and Profiler. 

Iowan instigators Vended have debuted a fiery new single with the release of "The Far Side". The single serves as the band's first new showing of the year and the follow up to the successful launch of last year's potent "Am I the Only One" - a delivery that has since tallied hundreds of thousands of streams across all platforms. 

The track harnesses the band's live volatility - a stylistic signature that has helped propelled Vended to the forefront of heavy music's emerging elite. Emphasizing the continued refinement of the sound anchored by the tandem of guitarists Cole Espeland and Connor Grodzicki, pummeling percussion from Simon Crahan and the unhinged command of frontman Griffin Taylor - Vended have seemingly turned a corner with their latest showing. 

Taylor reiterated that same sentiment. "'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 latest track offers a glimpse of the band's performative tenacity, as they prepare to embark on a lengthy EU/UK trek that will see the band headlining some 33-dates throughout the region. Featuring special guests Gloom In the Corner and Profiler, the run will begin later next month and stretch into the start of June - making for an especially comprehensive run.
