The Skinny: V2 (pronounced V Squared)–the high voltage rock band featuring twin brothers Vittorio (guitar) and Vincenzo (drums)–are now strongly impacting the charts with their the title track of their debut album, We Are V2, released February 24, 2015 via Rock Star University Records.

As of this week (March 30) “We Are V2” is #1 on the National Radio Airplay Charts for Independent Artists, #3 at Billboard’s Hot Singles Sales chart and #3 on the National Airplay Top 50 Rock chart. Check out the lead single “We Are V2” above.

Made up of Vincenzo on drums and twin brother Vittorio on guitar, V2 teamed up with legendary rock producer Ron Nevison (Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Ozzy Osbourne, Kiss and more) on their debut album to write and record nine original classic rock-flavored tracks, plus a cover of AC/DC’s “High Voltage” as a tribute to Rock music’s most notable brothers, Malcolm and Angus Young.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
