Des Moines Metallers Vended Release Video for Crushing New Single “Overall”

Des Moines metallers Vended drop the music video for their crushing new single “Overall.” Check it out here.




Des Moines’ firebrands, Vended have revealed a new video for crushing new track, “Overall”. The video comes as the band hit the road with Ukrainian metal squad Jinjer and follows a Summer which saw the band lay waste to the European festival circuit including a jawdropping set at Bloodstock Open Air.

Check out the video, directed by Derek Rathbun of Derek Films, here:

Regarding the new song, frontman Griffin Taylor informs;

“‘Overall’ is a song about getting trapped in your own head and having your thoughts self-sabotage you. And how sometimes YOU are the only person who can help yourself get out of that headspace. “I salt the wound myself” has a double meaning; you either feel the pain from bad thoughts, or you lean into it and embrace them.”

Upon completion of the Jinjer tour, the band head to South America in December for the first time, to Hell And Heaven Fest in Mexico City, and three massive Knotfest events in Bogota, Colombia, Macul in Chile and Sao Paolo, Brazil.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
