GIG AT COLCHESTER ARTS CENTRE
VATB is very excited to announce that we will be playing a gig at Colchester Arts Centre next Saturday (27th July 2013)! The event has been put together to raise money for a very worthy cause - The Robin Cancer Trust - a charitable organisation, created by our friend Toby Freeman to raise awareness about germ cell cancers in men and women. Tickets are only £6 and all proceeds go towards funding this worthy cause. Also performing are our friends Pistols and Vultures, Anna Pancaldi and Ady Johnson! We're proud to be playing alongside such amazingly talented friends.
Come along and help us to raise money for an important cause!

NEW LIVE VIDEO OF "POCKETS" AND STUDIO RECORDING!
We've been busy writing lots of new material which we are finally starting to record our debut album with Mr Tom Donovan in Rowhedge. The studio looks wicked and Isaac's drumming sounds wicked! We've also recently recorded a live video with the lovely guys from "Get Known Be Heard". It's of a brand new song, called "Pockets". You can check it out at the top of the page, or on the videos page with a couple of others! We've got loads of wicked gigs coming up in and around Colchester and London. We hope to see you at one soon!
MMG BOTB NATIONAL FINAL!
