It’s very rare that a group of musicians gets together and pursues a vision that is as focused as VAULTRY’s charismatic, emotional, and melodic sound. This Victoria, BC based Alternative Rock band prides itself on its atmospheric textures, passionate vocals, and relentless rhythm and drum sections. Forming in 2014, Vaultry have developed a brooding, vocal-driven indie rock sound, backed by captivating emotional hooks, and a giant anthemic score. The band has just release a new album tilted ‘Eulogy’ as a follow up to their 2015 EP: ‘Coven’, as a dedication to their late guitarist Chasen Fraser. The group has spent the last few years gathering an expansive and dedicated fan base both locally and internationally, performing around Vancouver Island and the Mainland with plans to tour Canada in Summer 2017. The band has a strong belief in community and treats every fan like they are part of the Vaultry family.
VAULTRY's latest release 'Eulogy' tells the story of Chasen's life, growing up transgender and ultimately being diagnosed with Cancer at the age of 25. The remainder of the album is written from the perspective of the band as a reaction to their grief. The album is a collection of songs written in the last few months of Fraser's life with vocalist, Leith Hynds, with highlights including the track 'Hospice', which was written at Fraser's hospice residence at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria BC. The remainder of the tracks were written by the band upon his passing.
'Eulogy' marks the addition of guitarist, Damian Anthony, and drummer Skye Mclean, who both performed on Vaultry's 2016 single: 'No Victory'. The album itself draws influence from the pop punk records that Chasen was nostalgic for in his youth, as well as the modern Post-Rock and Electronic sensibilities that vocalist/producer, Leith Hynds, is influenced by. The band has evolved to have an entirely sung and spoken word vocal style, abandoning the heavy punk and metalcore sound of their last release, 2015's 'Coven'.
