It’s very rare that a group of musicians gets together and pursues a vision that is as focused as VAULTRY’s charismatic, emotional, and melodic sound. This Victoria, BC based Alternative Rock band prides itself on its diverse guitar-work, atmospheric textures, and passionate vocal. Forming in 2014, Vaultry have developed a melancholic, vocal-driven indie rock sound, backed by captivating emotional hooks, and an anthemic score. In 2017, the band released their debut LP tilted ‘Eulogy’, as a dedication and celebration of their late guitarist Chasen Fraser. The group has spent the last few years gathering an expansive and dedicated fan base both locally and internationally, performing across Canada in 2017.
VAULTRY's latest release 'Eulogy' tells the story of Chasen's life, growing up transgender and being diagnosed with Cancer at the age of 25. The remainder of the album is written from the perspective of the band as a reaction to their grief. The album is a collection of songs written in the last few months of Fraser's life with vocalist, Leith Hynds, with highlights including the track 'Hospice', which was written at Fraser's hospice residence at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria BC. The remainder of the tracks were written by the band upon his passing. The album draws influence from the pop punk records that Chasen was nostalgic for in his youth, as well as the modern Post-Rock and Electronic sensibilities that vocalist/producer, Leith Hynds, is influenced by.
Since it's release 'Eulogy' has received a massive positive response from fans and critics alike, amassing over 360k plays across online streaming sites such as Spotify and Youtube.
The band is currently working on new material to expand and experiment on the melodic and electronic sounds of the last record.
