Nico Vega Beast

“Beast” is always the first song I play for friends when introducing them to the music of Nico Vega, so I couldn’t click the link fast enough when I saw that the LA rockers were premiering a video for the track on VEVO today. After watching it twice, back-to-back, I can safely say the video — directed by the band’s drummer Dan Epand and featuring 50 drummers wailing on trash cans — lives up to the intensity of the song, and I will now be using it when sharing Nico Vega with the unenlightened.

The group premiered their Fury Oh Fury EP on Rolling Stone last week, and you can now pick up the 6-track effort for yourself via the band’s website. They have called the EP “an appetizer before the album,” which is expected to be released later this year. They are also currently on tour with Imagine Dragons, and I can tell you from experience that a Nico Vega live show is not to be missed, so I sugget you start calling in favors now to find tickets to their sold-out show at The Wiltern on March 20th.
