The Skinny: Message To Venus have risen to the top of the indie scene, drawing influences from Tool, The Mars Volta and Led Zeppelin. Based in Florida but from Puerto Rico, Message To Venus have drawn comparisons to Alice In Chains, The Deftones and Soundgarden with their melodic heaviness. They made their first official mark on the music scene in 2011 with the release of their debut single “Universal You” from the subsequent EP The Envelope. The song and EP were positively received and Message To Venus started to receive mainstream praise from Godsmack and Halestorm.
As things got better, Message To Venus decided to relocate to Miami, Florida to better promote their music and also to record their debut full-length album Victims and Villains. The year 2012 has been extremely busy for this rising group as they were in full writing and recording mode. It has been topped off by a nomination for a Latin Rock Award in the alternative/rock category. Check out Message To Venus’ breakthrough track “Universal You” right here and grab the free download.
