Love you guys. I actually took my kid brother to see you guys at Warped tour for his first concert. We got to meet you guys, and we got a picture with Cassie. A memory he still thanks me for!!!! Love the new stuff as well.
From what i've heard, she left the band to pursue her work as a visual artist. And thats all shes been doing.
Which is cool and all, but i'm just gonna miss that amazing voice :(
I'm still praying she'll rejoin TVBS someday, but if not I hope she atleast starts some other music project.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cZ0OhTas1E Teaser trailer and release date!! Certainly had its surprises lol. And i think its gonna take a little while to adjust to Nikki's voice but only time will tell i guess.. Bring it on! :)
@cometg: As for similar bands, i can't think of many to be honest.. although Cassie's voice was kinda reminiscent of Gwen Stefani in her early No Doubt days. Of course they were more ska then but they could still be worth checking out (especially the Beacon Street Collection and Tragic Kingdom albums)
Cassie will be missed. Hope new lead singer's good. Can't wait to hear new stuff from them! Been so addicted to TVBS lately. Any other bands like them? I know The Creepshow and The Horropops. You guys know more?
final studio blog now uploaded :) All five are up for viewing on their facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150302625660075#!/pages/The-Vincent-Black-Shadow/13276820774?v=wall 'Like' and enjoy :) x
RIP TVBS  Cassie was great.
This is like Van Halen all over again! lol.
This is not like Nightwish where it is still Nightwish as long as Marco and Tuomas are in it,.
Cassie was the heart of this band. They should change their name at least and I will consider listening.
for once i'm in the open-minded camp who aren't condemning the new singer for not being the one we know and love lol :p Anyways, here's a video of Nikki Hurst in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hwn_l6DeQn4 Not the highest quality, but i've seen worse. Personally i don't think she's too bad, still gonna reserve any final judgements till the albums out though (whenever that is). Hope you enjoy it :)
pictures from a live performance they did on the 6th for those of you who haven't seen them already: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=251229&id=13276820774 Hope the link works for those of you who don't have facebook and/or haven't "liked" them on there.. If so, then enjoy :) Though i must say, seeing the pictures from the concert make me want to hear what the new singer sounds like...
I don't know why it's saying they are playing at the Hopscotch Music Festival, but it's not them. Vincent Black Shadow is playing, not TVBS. That would be a very random show in the US, lol. Would definitely fly down to NC to see them, if that were so. I got pretty excited when I thought it was actually them playing. =/
Just so all of you know, The Hive is NOT an official release by The Vincent Black Shadow. It is techno remix by Jason Darr from Neurosonic and was not approved by the band in any way. The REAL version of the album was released by Beef Records and is called El Monstruo.
