Mark’s New Chapter

As some of you might know, RPM Fest was our last show for the foreseeable future with our keyboardist, Mark, because he has moved down to Florida. He has a very new chapter of his life ahead of him, with a baby on the way.

Mark is one of the founding members of Vacant Eyes – I remember us jamming down in my filthy basement 10 years ago, playing along to early versions of “The Cortex” and “Indifference”, to some drum tracks I made on Guitar Pro, because we didn’t have a drummer yet. We’ve known each other since middle school and have been in a few bands together before this, since high school. He is a self-taught, metal-as-hell keyboardist, educated composer of music, genuine and caring friend, badass percussionist, and soon-to-be amazing father. We wish him the best with his soon-to-be family and new life.

With that being said, he will still be writing with us – the internet can be a wonderful thing – but our live shows will go on without him. We will miss his fantastic presence on stage.

See everyone soon!

Keep it dark, beautiful, and inspiring.

Thank You, RPM Fest!

We loved performing at RPM Fest! Thanks to everyone involved in this awesome event, and to all who came to experience the set with us and support.

We will be around for the rest of the festival. Please don’t hesitate to say hello, and if you’d like to buy any merch, you can just ask any of us. (Our booth won’t be set up, but we’ll have everything on site.)

Also, if anyone has pictures or videos, we’d appreciate you sharing them with us! Back to the RPM madness for the rest of the weekend.

Thanks to Darcy Dyes for the photo.

Performing at RPM Fest 2022!

We are thrilled to announce that we’ll be performing at RPM Fest 2022 in Montague, Massachusetts! This will be happening on Labor Day Weekend, September 2-4 at the Millers Falls Rod and Gun Club. Three days of heavy music, camping, games, plenty of food and drinks, and an awesome crowd. We personally look forward to this festival every year, and it’s an honor to be playing it again for the first time since 2015.

Welcome to Our New Bassist, Eric Gemborys!

We are pleased to welcome Eric Gemborys on bass! Our line-up is finally complete again, and we’re glad to be joined by someone who is both a friend and also a very devoted musician.

We aim to perform more often from here on out, and encourage anyone interested in booking us to get in touch.
