Today, Allentown alternative rockers Vicious. made their official debut, teaming up with New Noise Magazine to unveil the official music video for their track, “Everything Sucks.” An anthem for the times, “Everything Sucks” is an aggressive rock track that will resonate with anyone feeling frustrated with the world. It’s about those days when you just feel like you can’t win, have to learn things the hard way, or have to come to terms with accepting that some people just aren’t going to like you. Frontman Sam Sky explains further:
“Some days, no matter what, everything just feels like it f**king sucks. I want realness to resonate with anyone who listens to this, and let this be a solid constructive outlet to get all that anger and frustration out. ‘Everything Sucks’ goes out to anyone who’s had a sh**t 2016/2017 and thinks the world is going to hell in a handbasket.” – Sam Sky, Vicious.
Hailing from Allentown, PA, four-piece aggressive alternative rock band Vicious. consists of Sam Sky (Vocals), Dan Artim (Guitar), AJ Larsen (Guitar), and Chris Arcand (Bass). Formed in 2016, Vicious is the brainchild of Sky, ex-I Am King frontman, who recruited long time friend and former bandmate Artim before acquiring a full line up and honing in on a sound they loved. Pulling inspiration from heavy metal, alternative rock, and grunge, Vicious. is a free-for-all, let loose and rock out kind of band. Lyrically, recurring themes of conflict and pain are discussed, both internal and external. The band aims to write lyrics that say what everyone is thinking, but either don’t know how to or are too afraid to actually say it.
Earlier this year, the band hit the studio with audio engineers/producers Mitch Rogers (Bxd Blxxd, Varials) and Andrew Baylis (Nine Shrines) to lay down a slew of new tracks, to be released this fall. With melodic vocals and hard-hitting lyrics, Vicious. emphasizes the message that you are not alone with your demons. Frontman Sam Sky expands, “We all have them. Everyone struggles and feels like they’re drowning at one point. Find the strength in yourself, and give the finger to anyone in your way.”
