Two simple words can take you from 0 to 100 emotionally charged
memories of shouting along to songs that remind you of what music should feel like. When that sonic lifeblood courses through your veins, not only does it ignite your headbanging and crowd-surfing skills it inspires the universal will to do what you love.

Those two simple words, ROCK and ROLL are synonymous with
RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA . Their signature brand of infectious rock reminds us all that dreams infused by passion and a little elbow grease can shatter expectations and set the standard for defining what it means to break through.

RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA have come a long way from their humble beginnings at a community college in their small town of Cody, Wyoming. On a mission to cut through the clutter of mediocrity, the band set out on a self­ reinvention that would alter their earlier sound into one of the most unique blends of hard hitting rock on the scene today.

“We finished our 2011 release “Lawless” and started thinking about what we were going to do next. After some ideas were tossed around, we decided to try something that would really challenge our songwriting skills and push us to our creative limits. So, we took the intensity and high ­energy of our older metalcore sound and steered it into a more appealing direction,” states guitarist Justin Olmstead. The result of this new direction was their single “This Pain”, which spent fifteen weeks in the Top 40 on Mediabase’s Active Rock chart. Since then, Righteous Vendetta have hit the ground running and have established themselves on the road as a top notch live act.

Their newest EP Defiance was released September 2, 2014. Produced by Joel Wanasek at JTW Studios, the extended play features the single “Take Over”, a buzzing new favorite now in rotation on Sirius XM Octane.

With well over one thousand shows to date, the band’s touring schedule is as busy as ever. Having already conquered Europe, playing to packed venues in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, and more, RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA will continue their build in North America, headlining and supporting tours across the country.
