If there were a class for new bands looking to build huge amounts of buzz in as short a time as possible Take Us To Vegas (TUTV) would make perfect teachers. They have picked up 12,000 new followers on Twitter in the last 3 months and have doubled their amount of likes on Facebook. Mark your calendars as 13th of October at the Crowbar in Fortitude Valley is the D day for the launch of their new single "Apparently It Is Frowned Upon".
Since going public in early 2011, TUTV have enjoyed an enviable amount of attention and acclaim. Over the course of the last 18 months, TUTV have supported Broken Heart (U.S.A), 28 Days, Shihad, Bodyjar, Behind Crimson Eyes, House Vs Hurricane, Dangerous, Mourning Tide, Heroes for Hire, Closure in Moscow and Wheatus (USA). After supports with these bands it is a testament to TUTV, that they can already hold their own among those seasoned acts. Now, in keeping with the impeccable timing that would make most bands envious, they’re set to release their debut single worldwide on The Orchard, titled “Apparently It Is Frowned Upon.”
Take Us To Vegas may have a lot of buzz, but they also have the chops to back it up. Their new single “Apparently It Is Frowned Upon” is a hit and run of molten guitars, hormonal vocals, and machine-gun rhythms. For a taste, check out the video teaser below. Produced by Kalju Tanuma (28 Days, Body Jar, The Temper Trap), the new single has all of the ingredients to gain further attention with calls already being sourced from USA Festivals and USA College bookers.
The band will celebrate the release of "Apparently It Is Frowned Upon" with a show at The Crowbar in Fortitude Valley Brisbane, on Saturday 13th October 2012. Where they’ll have a lineup of local and interstate bands. After having just played in Adelaide with Beyond Crimsons Eyes and are doing run of Sydney shows this weekend, the Vegas boys will head for Melbourne to continue their run and impress audiences down there.
Making it in the music world is usually the dream of any upcoming artist/band but the Vegas boys have toppled this over a short period of time with some great songs that have already been ranked highly by listeners on the Triple J Unearthed website. In the punk charts their singles ‘Heart Attack’, ‘What We’re all about’ and ‘ Here to stay’ were ranked ’position one two and three respectively as voted by the listeners. This clearly shows that age is nothing, but class is permanent.
