The Glorious Veins on tour

 In five short years, bluesy post-punk dance rock band The Glorious Veins have toured the country and back, playing at SXSW and The Vans Warped Tour, and more. On Feb 19th, they will release Savage Beat, a disc that captures the raw energy of their powerful live sound, and on March 6th, they will hit the road for their coast to coast spring tour (dates below). 

Led by singer/songwriter Paul Pangman with British-born Matt Howels (guitar/back up vocals), Lee Grasso (Bass) and Philippines native Wiggy Colmenares (drums/back up vocals), The Glorious Veins will reel you in and flip your expectations with twisted lyrics and progressive chord changes that are the mark of four New York City transplanted musicians who found each other on Craigslist in 2007. Like the band members themselves, Savage Beat mixes an electric range of styles to create something at once unexpected andfamiliar. Recorded entirely on 2-inch analog tape in the fall of 2012 at Brooklyn’s Galuminum Foil Studios with engineer Jeff Berner, the disc is a driving, thumping album with a textured soundscape. And it’s bombastic, just the way a band that took their name from Plato’s “Vainglory” -- the delusion of grand destiny and a belief in your own immortality – wants it to be.

The Glorious Veins have performed at New York’s Mercury Lounge, Knitting Factory, Arlene's Grocery, Lit Lounge, and Cameo Gallery. They’ve also performed at venues from coast to coast. They will embark on a month long national tour this spring.
