Bio

2014 was the biggest, busiest, most exciting and challenging year for the Take Us To Vegas boys to date. The band recently finished recording their new "soon to be released" album 'Alive' at STL Studios on the central coast of NSW, Australia. Which has left them desperate to show everyone what they believe has been yet another massive step forward in honing their sound and musical maturity.

Take Us To Vegas (TUTV) spent 2013/2014 on the road in support of bands such as Story Of The Year (USA) Northlane, Senses Fail (USA), The Getaway Plan, The Plot In You (USA), Dance Gavin Dance (USA), Heroes For Hire, Texas In July (USA), Behind Crimson Eyes, Shihad and Closure in Moscow among a multitude of others, further solidifying their place among these seasoned acts. The highlight of 2013 was playing at Brisbane Vans Warped Tour!

Take Us To Vegas have grown dramatically since their formation in 2010, not just in regards to their music development, but in their attitudes and the way they understand and respect this extremely tough industry. With headline shows becoming bigger, more support slots for bigger bands, and fans becoming more and more loyal, the boys are excited for what the future holds. An example of just how loyal the TUTV fans are; the boys recently created a 40 day pledge campaign to try and raise $10,000 to help for the release of their upcoming album, and to their disbelief smashed the target in just 9 days.

TUTV are super busy in the beginning of 2015 preparing for the release of their new album but they are also hugely focused on getting ready to hit the road and hit the road HARD to tour the album, because that's where their passion is, playing shows!

“The energy from the stage was unmatchable. The band are extremely involved in their performance and were an absolute delight to watch. Especially seeing how involved and hyped up their audience was. I don't think I've seen that much energy during a band at POW! in a while now. Even though I've never heard them before, I was compelled to bop along and even sing along to their catchy hooks, seeing almost an entire venue doing the same is a little influential as well...”
Jemma Edwards ~ Australian Music Network

The horizon looks bright for TUTV, with no signs of anything slowing down.

The coolest part came with those low frequencies around 1:50. I worry it might sound a little American-y, but American emo is clearly where your influences are and it's well-written, AND you've captured lightning in a bottle production wine.
