Hailing from Denver, Colorado, post hardcore-metal outfit, Victory Heights is heading to the UK this month on their first UK tour.
After years of touring the USA, Victory Heights feel now is the time to spread their wings and head over the pond to the UK, admitting that this is a massive step for the band but excited to play in front of a new crowd and British fans. You can expect energy, chaos, probably lead vocalist, Karl Bagnall, climbing up on the tallest structure within reach of his microphone cable, and very likely a broken instrument or an injured band member. Victory Heights shows are known for a high level of crowd participation, and you can look forward to, pits, sing alongs, stage dives and crowd surfers from start to finish.
Two tracks you can expect to hear Victory Heights play live on their UK tour are “For The Birds” and “Young and Divine”. Both are from their debut full length release, In Motion, which was released on the 17th June 2014.
“For The Birds” shows the bands passionate-agressive side, expressing their feelings of how ignorant people can be, talking about how most of the time people are so sure they are right and fail to provide any real evidence to back up their belief system, and feel they have the right to tell someone they are wrong because they have different opinions or views. “Young and Divine” shows the bands fun and silly side, adding in rap and talking about rebelling youths, and putting the message out that the most important thing is to enjoy your life while you can, doing things that make you happy and brings joy in to your life.
Victory Heights are releasing their second full length record later in the year, which is quite a bit different from anything the band have released to date, with so much dynamic and emotion packed into those 12 songs, keeping to the a very real and pissed off attitude, with a passionate delivery from the 5 guys.
