Alpha Vigilant is truly a D.I.Y. Rock n’ Roll band. They formed at the end of 2011 out of desperation. Both Jim and Dane were submersed in the music industry, Jim with producing/writing electro-pop for various Disney acts, and Dane with touring festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza with a poppy hip-hop act. Despite all of this first hand experience, doors were not opening for either of them. Eventually, the brothers decided they were tired of the lies and manipulation of this giant corporate machine, and most importantly they were tired of the terrible music force fed down their throats. “I just realized there was nothing out there for me to be inspired by. Pop music today is just the exact same squeaky clean tracks regurgitated over and over again.”, Dane says. Jim says, “I think people need to wise the fuck up, they are being sold snake oil. We don’t believe we can change the shape of the industry, we simply choose to no longer be part of the problem, to ignore the opinions of greedy men, and to be honest to the people that matter most, ourselves and our listeners. The blue pill is always easier to swallow than the red, but I would rather choke on the truth than live off lies.” Their sound is soaked in sweat and polished with mud. They have written, played, recorded, mixed, and produced every ounce of their upcoming debut EP. Rock n’ Roll isn’t dead it’s in the trunk of this industries Bentley with its hands tied and its mouth duct taped. There is no reality T.V. backstory; there is no computer-mouse programmed synthesizers; there are no compromises; there is only sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll.
