Groningen, The Netherlands
The Vices present a contrasting mix of Britpop and Surf Rock. Imagine Cage The Elephant and The Strokes having a love-child who happens to possess a live-energy that reminds one of the early Chili Peppers. These are some big names, but above all The Vices always stay true to themselves. With child-like fun and relentless ambition they can easily play tight and explosive or playful and danceable. This all resulted in their club tours immediately selling out, and Nothing But Thieves taking them along as their support act to the big stages of Europe several times. Big stages, small stages, moshing or dancing, it doesn’t matter: The Vices will blow your socks off with a huge smile! Second album Unknown Affairs (2023) saw the band trek across Europe and America where they didn't stop playing until the last person had been convinced. As luck might have it they’re doing another round through Europe for everyone who missed it the first time. On their new album, The Vices sound more vulnerable than ever before. What else are you supposed to do in a world without truths? The only normal thing you can do is express your thoughts and feelings. Which is exactly what The Vices are doing during their tour! The Vices are open, honest and not afraid to do things in their own way. You hear this in the music, and during a live show you feel it in spades. It’s in their DNA.
