VAUDE VILLAINS

Vaude Villains, a quartet from Brighton, first attracted the attention of ex A&R Heads Jack Steven and Peter Hadfield entering a mentoring programme with them – the pair responsible for signings such as Florence and the Machine and Arctic Monkeys. The band have since played across the biggest unsigned venues across Brighton and London in preparation for their debut single release ‘Alabama’.
