Formed in 2014, Minneapolis Minnesota's Villain of the Story can be described as a modern spin on 2010's metalcore fused with 2000's radio rock. To date the band has released 3 studio albums and an EP amassing 20+ million plays across all platforms. 'Wrapped in Vines, Covered in Thorns' was their debut album released through Stay Sick Recordings in 2017. A year later the band went back to being fully independent and followed up with 'Ashes' in 2018, which features the well received closing track "Peace of Mind". After two years of pushing songs of Ashes, Villain of the Story released another independent album 'Bloodshot'. Though the album was only just released late 2020, it is proving to be the band's best work to date and has been growing at an accelerated rate. It features fan favorites "Stuck" and "Bloodshot". VOTS has finished writing and recording yet another album that is planned for a late 2021 release that contains more of what the fans have come to love (heavy hitting breakdowns contrasted with catchy radio rock jams) as well as hints of extra experimentation. Stay tuned.
