Single release from upcoming four song EP, ‘Outliers’, due for release on March 17.
Some Villains, an alternative rock band from Somerset, England, influenced by QOTSA, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool and the like, is said to be “Music in Perpetual Motion”. Edward Graves on Guitar & Vocals, supported by the Guitar talents of Luke Tozer , Jake Beckett on Drums and Stuart Donovan on Bass give stunning performance in a blend of both Raw Energy and Superb Composition.
Some Villains recently qualified for the competition finals of the Pilton Party Auditions and will share the stage with Gaz Brookfield and From The Jam at Sat In A Field Festival on August 5th in the UK.
‘The Skin’ is a fast moving and Brooding piece, full of anger, regret, aggression and a desire to live. In this track, Some Villains hold the bar high, and surpass it without effort, truly a great track, and if this is just a hint of what to expect from their upcoming EP ‘Outliers’, then the best is yet to come.
From the band’s point of view, ‘The Skin’ really recalls Tom Wofle’s message “you can’t go home again”.
“It’s about separation & longing & loss (romantic, familial, whatever). And it’s about the understanding that after something’s been broken apart once, no matter how perfectly you re-assemble it, it will never feel the same, or be the same…the light would always show through the cracks. So in a way it’s half a down-trodden recognition of the end of something, and half a defiant acceptance that for life to move forwards you’ve got to accept the changes and the broken objects which lay behind you.”
