The Vanity Plan


Everyone’s tags

More tags


The Vanity Plan has recorded 2 EP’s with Matt Malpass, No More Lovers Die Tonight (2007) and The Ignorant Are Sold (2009). The Ignorant are Sold contains the song “Before I Die” which is featured in EA Games Madden NFL 10.

So, the big question is: “Who the heck is The Vanity Plan?”. If you’re reading this then you may have already googled it, maybe even looked us up on Wikipedia. At this point it’s pretty safe to go with your first impression: In the worlds of Rock n’ Roll and video games we’re no one, at least not yet. =) As of today, however, Madden NFL 10 has been out for a while and our status has been consistently evolving from “unknown” to “little known”.
Through a fortunate series of events our music fell in the hands of the right people, all of which made possible me writing this blog today. But I’ll get back to that in a minute, depending on how fast you read.
What everyone should know about The Vanity Plan is that the current lineup, the same that recorded “Before I Die” and the rest of the songs on “The Ignorant Are Sold”, Manny, Josh, Christian, Brett, and myself are the original lineup. We’ve all known each other for over 12 years, some even longer. We’ve been schoolmates, roommates, played in bands together, bunk buddies, etc. We knew each other as kids, and we’ve attended each other’s weddings. Should the lineup ever change (God forbid) what we have now is not just a band, but a small community.
