Erupting onto the L.A. rock scene in the Fall of 2012, VATTICA is a progressive and hard-hitting trio of organic indie-alternative rock. Infusing a fresh and unique sound into a widely accepted & sustainable genre of music, this powerful triumvirate instills a transcendent illumination of rock - incorporating striking and hook-driven guitar riffs, memorable vocal melodies and a commanding rhythm section of dynamic variety and complexity, solidifying the band as a dominant and arresting force.
Vattica is Alexander Millar (lead vocals / guitar), Joey Jane (bass, backing vocals) and Prentice Daggs (drums / percussion, backing vocals). Vattica's debut EP, "The Assayer", was recorded by Fred Archumbault (Avenged Sevenfold, Lost Prophets, Get Scared) and produced by Gus Cryns (Panic! At the Disco, Escape The Fate, Foxy Shazam, Dead Rabbits, The Academy Is) and was released worldwide in May 2012.
Vattica unrelentingly pushes themselves in a true DIY model, tackling all aspects of a calculated and aggressive working band - having entirely self-generated their emergent success. In addition to independently distributing the debut EP, "The Assayer", Vattica maximizes all aspects of multi-media marketing, which includes adopting a cinematic element of ongoing promotional content and music videos. "Run Baby," the first single and video released from their upcoming debut album (Fall 2013), continues to embrace audiences, as the band's progressive and powerful music captures the presence and influence of a band with dominant sustainability.
The band has built a strong, diverse and dedicated fan base throughout Southern California, in addition to their expanded following in Nevada and Arizona. Assertively positioning themselves among the most promising up-and-coming national touring Artists and bands in their genre, Vattica tirelessly performs live in legendary venues including The Viper Room, Roxy Theatre, Canyon Club, The Troubadour and the Whisky a Go-Go.
The band's drive to share their music and connect with fans frequently takes them out on the road… touring across the US and performing in festivals and celebrated venues. Vattica's exposure has also crossed international waters, gaining popularity and an emerging fan base in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
Engaged by the influences of Muse, 30 Seconds To Mars, Green Day, Our Lady Peace, U2 and The Clash, Vattica's music incorporates a passionate and concentrated theme in its lyrics and tone - subjectively tackling the universal journey of contending-with-the-challenges and celebrating-the-conquests that test and continue to define one's existence.
