Florence, Firenze, Toscana, Italy
There are more than one band named The Vickers.
Japan - Forming in 2003 after Chisato, formerly of the all-female punk band THUG MURDER (TKO Records), and Kenta666, from the hardcore band REAL SHIT, started collaborating, THE VICKERS quickly carved a name for themselves as one of Japan's fiercest rock n' roll acts. They released their first mini-album Stab Your Back, now out-of-print, which was quickly followed up with three brutal albums as well as Chisato's final recording with the group Don't Slow Me Down. Recently, tiny terror Annie joined taking on bass duties and THE VICKERS sound louder and more striking than ever!
The Vickers were born at the end of 2006. Their sound is mainly influenced by british pop-rock sometimes mixed with the american folk-rock tradition. Between 2007 and 2008 they have been playing many gigs in live-music pubs and festivals. They recorded their first demo, "The Vickers" (4 tracks), at the end of 2007. In January 2008 they have been chosen by David Bash for playing at the International Pop Overthrow (IPO), traveling music festival, for the Liverpool’s Cavern stage held from the 20 and the 26 of May. After the english mini-tour, the band signed with the indipendent label Foolica Records. Their debut album "Keep Clear" was released 13th february 2009. The album was positively received by the most important national musical revues and international blogs and webzines. From March 2009 the band appeared on national magazines like GQ, and their songs are currently getting airplay on important radios like Radio RAI (Radio Televisione Italiana).
