The hard rock band VYCES released their new single “Paralyzed” via Imagen Records/Warner ADA. The band is about to open the flood gates with new music and content to be released in late 2019. They will also be performing on select festivals and dates through the summer and fall.
About the single, vocalist Dave Naruszewicz stated:
“I’m extremely excited to share Paralyzed with everyone. It’s a song we’ve been playing live over the past two years and has definitely made its mark as a core song in our set. Producer Augustus Cryns’s vision for the song caught my attention the first time I heard the riffs. Infectious and undeniable – this song is a head banger from start to finish.”
VYCES started in the summer of 2014 when three guys from very different parts of the country with three very different musical experiences came together with the same goal in mind. Dave Naruszewicz (Heart-Set Self-Destruct), Russell Ray (Old Fashioned Beatdown), and Shawn Patterson (Old Fashioned Beatdown) began writing demos together and sending ideas back and forth. After a few trips to Los Angeles, they decided to go into the studio with producer Augustus Cryns (Butcher Babies, Stitched Up Heart) and also featured Mark James Klepaski (Breaking Benjamin, Lifer) on bass. After a year of writing and recording, the band had finished twenty-two and created a solid blend of active rock and metal. Dave (vocals) describes the soul of the songs as the darkest side of human emotion and behavior.
In 2016, the band released their debut EP ‘Devils’ and released a music video for their single “Devil”, which was filmed by Ron Underwood. During the months of October and November of that year, they embarked on the Hellrzzr Tour and trekked across the U.S. performing in twenty-nine cities in thirty-three days. After that, they spent the beginning of 2017 working on new material in between hitting the road on three national tours. In June of that year, the band released their first radio single “Noctural” accompanied by another music video filmed by Ron Underwood and featured Carla Harvey of Butcher Babies. They released their single “Thin Luck” in February of 2018 and spent the rest of the year touring in support of the song as well as performing at festivals like Las Rageous.
