Victoria, BC based quintet, Vaultry have released announced a cross-Canada summer tour. The band will spend June and July bringing the party along with them, playing crowd favourites from their 2017 full-length album, Eulogy. We were stoked to get the chance to chat with the band for our newest segment of Five Questions With. If you get the chance, check out Vaultry while they are on tour in a city near you, see dates below:
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi, we’re Vaultry from Victoria BC, Canada. We just released a new album called Eulogy and are touring it across Canada this June and July.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Our music has been described as a mix of Alt-Rock and old school Emo, with a little bit of modern post-hardcore. We currently play a pretty standard setup: vocals, 2 guitar, bass, and drums. However, we’re working on expanding it and adding more instruments on stage, like keyboards and percussion. Our most recent album was a concept album dedicated to our late guitarist Chasen Fraser, and we shaped it around telling the story of his life. We wanted to include signature sounds from the era in which he first discovered music (2003-2006) and make it nostalgic in that sense.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We’re about to go across Canada and perform for a month, so we will be quite busy. We’re an extremely high energy band with a rousing live show, so even if we’re opening we always go as hard as we can.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
“Wildfire” is currently our favourite to play live and has one of our favourite choruses we recorded on the album.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
We’re big fans of bands like Hawking, JPNSGRLS, Death From Above 1979, Twenty One Pilots, Rarity, PINE, Seoul, and a lot of bands in the Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal scene. And of course we love the bands here in the Victoria scene.
