BORN A NEW AND VCTMS
A versatile nu-metalcore group based out of Streamwood, Illinois, VCTMS employ an ambitious blend of punishing breakdowns, catchy melodies, and crushing riffs that draw from post-hardcore, hip-hop, and industrial and alternative metal. Citing influences like System of a Down, Slipknot, Thrice, and Korn, the band came together in the early 2010s around the talents of John Matalone (bass, vocals), Meredith Henderson (drums, vocals), and Ryan Walters (guitar). They issued a trio of singles in 2013 ahead of the release of their full-length debut, 2014's Sickness, Vol. 1. More singles arrived in 2015 and 2016, culminating in the arrival of their sophomore full-length effort, Vol. II Inside the Mind, in 2017. They completed the trilogy the following year with the release of Vol. III Halfway Happy.
Born A New formed in early 2013 in northern New Jersey with intentions of simply playing local shows. In under four years they covered way more than just the local scene. With a few small lineup changes and now with four members cemented in, Born A New is quickly gaining notoriety in the music scene. With a mix of heavy drops, hateful riffs, and powerful lyrics, their live performance delivers a non-stop energetic vibe making it an environment perfect for anyone with a heavy taste in their genre. There is a consistent grind and hustle mentality within the band and nothing can stop them. With no intentions on slowing down, the need to spread their own message with heavy hitting music remains their number one priority.
