VISION OF DISORDER: Brooklyn Headlining Show Now A Red Cross Benefit For Hurricane Sandy Victims

Today Vision Of Disorder confirms that all the proceeds from their upcoming headlining concert in Brooklyn later this month will be donated to the Red Cross, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

What was simply a headlining show for the band has now been dubbed “Picking Up Change: Hardcore For Hurricane Relief.” Vision Of Disorder initiated this act of support to their community after witnessing the catastrophic demolition across the New York metropolitan area and beyond as Sandy surged through our region on October 29th. VOD, as well as the other bands performing at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 24th, will contribute donations to the Red Cross to help aid the decimated areas and many displaced local residents throughout the Northeast as the season grows colder.

In a collective statement the members of VOD had this to say: “Our hearts go out to those severely affected by this tragic incident. Being from Long Island, Hurricane Sandy has (quite literally) hit home for us. The music scene in Long Island, The New York metro area and New Jersey have been so supportive to VOD over the years that we felt donating the proceeds from the Brooklyn show was a no-brainer. We are proud to announce that the opening acts (Primitive Weapons, Yuppicide, Swarm of Arrows) have also agreed to donate their proceeds. We hope that this small gesture can add to the ongoing efforts and help rebuild these traumatized areas. We look forward to seeing you all on Nov 24th to support this cause.”

In addition to the funds generated by Vision Of Disorder, Yuppicide, Primitive Weapons and Swarm of Arrows at “Picking Up Change: Hardcore For Hurricane Relief” going directly to the Red Cross, show attendees are invited to bring supplies—canned/nonperishable food, batteries, toilet paper, etc.—for area shelters and food banks, as donation bins will be posted outside of the venue. Supplies to aid pets and animals displaced by the storm are also acceptable and will be donated to Last Resort Animal Rescue in New Jersey.

The members of Vision Of Disorder, in an alliance with Candlelight Records, Earsplit PR, Metal Insider, The Music Hall of Williamsburg and all parties involved with this event, are reaching out to all area hardcore and metal fans to join them on November 24th, not only to take part in what is sure to be a high-action live show, but more importantly to help contribute to this imperative objective of getting the displaced families and businesses back on their feet. Doors open at 7:30pm.

VISION OF DISORDER: Release “Set To Fail” Video Via Metal Injection

Today Vision Of Disorder discloses another new single from their anticipated pending full-length, The Cursed Remain Cursed, in the form of a video for the album’s second track, “Set To Fail.”

Stated guitarist Matt Baumbach: “’Set To Fail’ is a song that was literally finished the day before we went into the studio. [Mike] Kennedy showed up with this insane riff and it all came together very fast. This record is crazy in that some songs took three years and others took three days. It’s by far one of our strongest tracks ever in my opinion and its gonna be insane live.”

Vocalist Tim Williams added: “Set To Fail” was the last song to come together for The Cursed Remain Cursed writing sessions. When the track was played back over the studio speakers it was clear from the first thirty seconds we had a monster on our hands. The track represented everything VOD was, is and will be. All the elements and chaos VOD has to offer is within the track. When our friend Kirk Farrington approached us for a video shoot there was no doubt in our minds that this song would be it. Lyrically, the utmost honest and venomous track on the record, coming from a journey through the several levels of a personal hell so deep, that even the sun could cast no shadows.”

“Loveless,” the lead single and opening track from The Cursed Remain Cursed has already stormed into the Top 20 on CMJ’s Loud Rock Album chart, and is streaming via Lambgoat.com AT THIS LOCATION.

VISION OF DISORDER: Track Listing And Artwork Revealed

Candlelight Records today reveals album artwork and track listing for Vision Of Disorder’s forthcoming new album, The Cursed Remain Cursed. Set for release September 18, it is the first new album from the New York-based hardcore band in over ten years. A working collaboration between Vision Of Disorder, producer Will Putney (Shadows Fall, Suicide Silence), and mixer Cameron Webb (Motorhead, Social Distortion), The Cursed Remains Cursed is eagerly anticipated, with the album’s lead single “Loveless” already Top 20 on CMJ’s Loud Rock Album chart.

Several artists were considered for The Cursed Remain Cursed; the band looking for images that would reflect the near four years of intense work that comprised the making of the album. It was the vision of East Anglia-based illustrator Tom Bates that struck the right chord with the band in making the final selection. Guitarist Mike Kennedy says, “some of the best album covers, like Soundgarden’s Badmotorfinger and Faith No More’s Angel Dust, say everything and nothing at the same time. We felt like Tom’s art really impacted us profoundly in that way. None of us were thinking in that direction yet as soon as we saw it, the band unanimously wanted it on the cover.”

Lyrical inspiration for The Cursed Remain Cursed, as detailed by vocalist Tim Williams, came from a personal place. “There was a lot going on in my life at the time we began writing songs for the record and I had a lot to reflect upon,” he reveals. “Looking back over the past few years, I have had to make some difficult decisions. There were things that needed to change. Some things die quietly, while other things take years to pass.. Your life is what you make of it, to live is to learn.” Continuing he notes, “some songs came very easy, like ‘Skullz Out.’ Songs like ‘Loveless’ and Set To Fail’ took a little bit more effort because they were already saying something musically, so I had to work extra hard to push the vocal over the top.”

With creative detail now complete, the band are preparing for the album’s early autumn release and upcoming live appearances. Reflecting the extensive process, guitarist Matt Baumbach says, “in my opinion The Cursed Remain Cursed is our band’s finest achievement. We are proud to have written something that represents the next level of VOD. It is never easy to make one of our records; it’s long, arduous, and at times maniacal. This record bleeds from the band’s heart and it survived hell and back to get here. Roll the dice one more time because we are all in with this one.” Kennedy adds, “we feel we accomplished a very unique, vicious and exciting record without compromising the VOD brand of hardcore.”

The Cursed Remain Cursed Track Listing:

  • 1. Loveless
  • 2. Set to Fail
  • 3. Blood Red Sun
  • 4. Hard Times
  • 5. Annihilator
  • 6. Skullz Out (Rot In Pieces)
  • 7. The Enemy
  • 8. The Seventh Circle
  • 9. New Order of Ages
  • 10. Be Up On It
  • 11. Heart And Soul

Innovative and widely-admired, VISION OF DISORDER pioneered the collision between hardcore and metal. Since their formation in 1992, VISION OF DISORDER has sold over 250,000 albums in the United States. “When it comes to 90’s hardcore bands who were years (if not a decade) ahead of the curve, predating a whole generation of bands who took their style and ran with it, and never got the credit they deserved for it, VOD is right up there,” said Sergeant D from MetalSucks earlier this year. Lambgoat editor Alex Arnold notes, “when I discovered VISION OF DISORDER in 1997, it was a true revelation. For me, they were the perfect combination of heaviness, technicality, and melody.” Shai Hulud guitarist Matt Fox adds, “there is clearly an inherent musical groove rooted within the fiber of the Long Island underground. I’m convinced VISION OF DISORDER rooted it.”
