This week in the studio we have the band Venomentality. The band is keeping busy and playing out when ever they can. The sound is a brighter version of the punk/rock/pop era of the mid-90's after the raise of rhythm based power songs. But there is something slightly different when compared to the rockers of yester. The band has been able to make a name for themselves well before their 21st birthdays. They are kicking ass, taking names, and all of this between their school schedules. The lead singer, Val, was a bit under the weather but she managed to pull it off. We just added a couple of extra songs from their latest album to fill the interview (and I think you'll be pleased with the plugged in versions).
In early 2005, Valerie's band "Venomentality" was formed. For almost three years now, Valerie, along with lead guitarist Peter Kansas, bass player Kristin Hoeg, and drummer Ben Zeigler, have consistently played 1-4 shows per month, including high profile events such as the Union Square Virgin Megastore Mashup, opening for MINK at the Union Square NYU Back to School Blow Out, Albany's annual Larkfest, The NY State Ski and Snowboard Expo, the Rock 2 Rebuild benefits at Albany's Palace Theater, and the Historic Caffe' Lena's Emerging Artists Breakout Series in Saratoga Springs. The band recently filmed its first one hour syndicated television special "The New Music Showcase" at Comcast Studio in Springfield MA.
