Vayden by definition is knowledge. The knowledge that the art of life is play. We don't play for product or pay, or for notoriety or fame. We play because life is a game. One can either let a game sit and collect dust, or play it. It is Vayden's philosophy to play the game we love well, and to remember those who love us for it.
Vayden formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 2005, and currently reside in Los Angeles, California. We released our first full-length album, Children of Our Mistakes, in 2006, and have since shared the stage with many amazing artists, been on national and international tours, received extensive radio airplay and have played festivals for thousands of people. Our latest full-length album, Alone in the Sky, was recorded in Bremen, Germany, and was released on May 5th, 2013.
Vayden could be categorized as a rock band, though our influences span many generations and include everything from The Beatles to Frank Zappa, from Alice in Chains to Tool, from Rage Against the Machine to System of a Down. Mix in some motown, a touch of classical and a little jazz, and you now have a portion of the raw material that makes up Vayden.
We are four guys with common interests and philosophies and it's our intention to share our discoveries in the art of life and music with everyone who cares to listen.
Enjoy the game.
