New Zealand Rock outfit Villainy who have recently released their third album ‘Raised In The Dark’, which cemented them as a dominant force in New Zealand after debuting at #2 in the Top 40 and containing 4 x Top 10 radio singles and delivered some crushing truths with the uplifting slacker anthem (and #1 Rock single) ‘Dreams’; the dystopian banger ‘Tiny Little Island’, and the latest #1 single ‘Cut’.
The album earned the band a win for Best Rock Artist at this year’s VNZMAs (already two time winners from their previous LPS), and sees Villainy at the peak of their powers. With the unfortunate departure of Black Stone Cherry from the upcoming Halestorm Tour, Villainy have stepped up to the plate and will be on their first tour on Australian soil since 2015.
We caught up with Neill and Thom from Villainy, who bought us up to date on the bands award win, touring with not only Halestorm, but AC/DC, and all the things that make Villainy tick.
