Bio

The Vanns are Jimmy Vann (Vocals & Guitar), Lachlan Jones (Drums) and Adam Bernich (Bass).

Fresh from announcing their 21 date Australia wide tour, The Vanns are stoked to release their new 'Scattered By Sundown' EP.

Recorded in Melbourne with legendary award-winning producer Mark Opitz (AC/DC, INXS, Bad//Dreems), the new EP features 5 fresh tracks, crafted lovingly and tasting sweeter than a salted caramel ice cream on a summers day.

The CD EP also features a bonus 5 track CD of classic Vanns tunes.

The EP is available for purchase on CD from www.thevanns.com.au or digital download from iTunes.

Hailing from the New South Wales town of Kiama, The VANNS burst from the shadows of their rusty farm shed two years ago to deliver an infectious mash of earthy blues and indie rock. 2015 promises to be the busiest year yet for the Kiama three-piece outfit, with more single releases, national tours, key supports and festival appearances planned.

Over the last couple of years, The Vanns took out the Red Bull Jam and have toured the East Coast of Australia sharing stages with Sticky Fingers, Kingswood, The Griswolds, Jinja Safari, Dappled Cities, Northeast Party House and many more.

The EP's first single ‘Operator’ is out now. The second single 'Keep My Cool' is set for release on 13 February.

Come and say gday to the boys out on the road in Australia from February to April 2015.

Oooh, I like this tune. It's got that rootsy swagger on the vocals and a lovely indie sound aswell. Nice!
