Vegatron - "The Wave" | Music 2014 | SXSW

March 3, 2014
Vegatron plays intense, honest, and aggressive music stemming from the basic elements of rock: drums, bass, and guitar. Powerful lyrics paired with heavy hooks and riffs in the same vein as Nirvana, QOTSA, and Red Fang. Vegatron deliberately moves away from the synthesizers and backing tracks so prevalent in todays music. The lyrics come from a place of truth that as singer Andrew Collins puts it, \"observe the fallacies, ironies, and double standards from within myself, but also as a reflection of the society that we live in now.\" The band released their album \'Awakening\' in November 2013 to great response. Austin Monthly gives Vegatron\'s debut LP Awakening 3/5 stars saying, \"The debut from punk-metal trio Vegatron is as dense as the Earth's core...It deftly straddles the smoldering punk-metal- hard rock divide.\" James Roberts of readthehorn.com says. \"Loud, abrasive, thunderous, and pretty much everything rock and roll should be. Nothing flashy about these guys, just a no frills kick in the balls that will leave you begging for more. Imagine if Motorhead played a slower, crunchier style and you'll have an idea about how these guys bring it.\"
