Victim Of Modern Age
Victim of Modern Age hails from Lafayette, LA. Their technical compositions tend to be illuminated by glowing stage performances. Minimal but precise vocals surgically emphasize, while sudden stops and changes might deregulate heart palpitations. Their music has been compared to that of fellow bands Shellac, Braid, The Rapture, No Knife, Unwound and others. Victim of Modern Age has been adopted by the ever-growing indie rock category, but their music is of independent expression and also draws from other musical stylings, including some massive jazz roots.
Channels Like Capillaries is the band's sophomore release on Universal Warning Records. The record is the culmination of years of practice/writing and almost a year in the studio. During their 2003 recording sessions, the band worked closely with long time friend and talented engineer, Ivan Klisanin to make Channels Like Capillaries the next shocking chapter in Victim of Modern Age's diary. The album includes piano interlude and creatively layered vocals that spans the spectrum of musical expression. Despite intense production, "Channels" is an exposé of honest rock, intravenously shared between VOMA members and listeners.
“Nature and economics are synonymous and repetitive,” said Allen Clements, Singer/Guitarist of VOMA. “The channels that move filthy money through the world are the capillaries that move blood throughout our bodies. It's a straw that fills my mouth with water. Channels are rivers, streams, and the US postal service.” VOMA began in 2001 when Ponder changed their name to something more appropriate and recorded a four song "EP." That EP was mailed to Universal Warning Records at the recommendation of a friend. UWR agreed to release the record in June of 2002 as the first of a 2-3 record deal. In September of the same year Allen Clements from Claymore was invited to join on guitar and vocals. Work on the then untitled full-length record began in October of that year. Between studio sessions the band toured the east coast and returned to resume recording sessions. In May of 2003, bassist Nathan Carnes and drummer Dan Robertson were replaced by Jason Decou and David Leonard, from the band One Common Voice. Both living in the same town, the band was officially home in the south central college town of Lafayette, LA. Victim of Modern Age has performed with Benton Falls, Hey Mercedes, Liars Academy, Avec, We are Childhood Equals, Mae, Bright and Hollow Sky, Red Animal War, Jet By Day, Snakes and Music, Twothirtyeight, The Movie Life, Brand New, The North Atlantic, Brandston and many others. They are currently working on their second music video that will be in 2D animation. Their 2002 music video for "Instruct to Destruct" is currently airing in select markets.
