The Vico Cycle still rides through 2017
It has been a while, hasn't it? Almost all the site action has moved over to our Facebook page, it being 2017 and all. If you've kept up with us there since 2015, you'd know everything that has gone on with us since we last posted here. Our original drummer Fabrizio and keys player Roderico left us to spend more time with their kids -- literally. Fortunately, Nick's skill, musical versatility and songwriting chops have more than made up for their departures. We are incredibly fortunate to have found him, and the band is probably more flexible and dynamic now than we have ever been. Thanks to our current roster's consistency, commitment, and especially Zandy's hard work, we've played more shows in the past 18 months than we did in the previous years. Finally, one of us got hitched for the first time and another had a kid for the first time.
In other exciting news, we've also completed our first studio recordings in 4+ years. If you've been coming to our live shows featuring our original work, you might recognize Polar Vortex Blues, A Friend In the Dark, and Back From the Dead. The tracks have been mastered and will be released over the next few weeks. We think they provide a good sample of what we're all about.
And these new recordings are just the beginning. We've decided that the album/EP paradigm of music publishing is largely obsolete, so we've decided to record and release new original songs whenever we strike that magical combination of inspiration, money, and time. That means you never know when we will drop a new track -- but we will be sure to let you know when we do via our Facebook page.
