“‘Sanctuary’ is the song that defines the true birth of Violent New Breed. Up until now we felt like we were writing demos without a true identity. ‘Sanctuary’ is a defining moment for the future of VNB,” explains Max Green.
Las Vegas band Violent New Breed brings us a fresh new take on the metal genre. Their relentless dedication coupled with just refusing to give up, is what fuels VNB to leave their mark. In 2019 Violent New Breed was formed by Max Green (best known as the co-founder/bassist of Escape the Fate). Following the release of the band’s debut album, Bad Reputation (SBG Records) VNB was set to tour – then, the pandemic struck putting an end to those tour plans and ultimately the old line-up.
During the process, Green recruited Garrett Lowery (Lead Guitar) and Nicholas Ray (Drums) and got to writing new music. The trio quickly caught the eyes and ears of Bobby Schubenski (Owner of Blackcraft Cult Clothing) and Danny Wimmer (Danny Wimmer Presents). This immediately led them to be guests on the highly successful “That Space Zebra Show” hosted by Bobby Schubenski on Twitch, as well as their own mini series called “The Vocalist” where open auditions were held to find the band a new singer. After a grueling competition, tons of submissions, and the help of an all too impressive audience of over 100k+ viewers, the band finally found their singer, Albert Schweizer.
