Entitled Warpaint, the album ferments their audacious songwriting style across seven formidable yet emotionally vulnerable songs. Spending over a year in production, this album represents the delicate inculcation of restraint, self-doubt, and introspection that was afforded as a result of their recent touring efforts. Exposing the nakedness that we struggle to conceal, Warpaint is the story of embattled spirits.
Warpaint track listing:
Originally formed around Withrow‘s well-received 2007 solo debut and evolving over two incredible discs, Vangough – whose current killer lineup includes drummer Kyle Haws, keyboardist Corey Mast and bassist Jeren Martin – combines the groovy attitude of southern metal stalwarts and the quirkiness of contemporary art rock with melodies and textures inspired by music from all over the world. Their often times vintage sound harkens back to the forebearers of progressive rock, giving them a slightly retro feel while retaining the freshness of a forward-thinking contemporary band.
