V FOR VENDETTA has been playing their unique brand of melodic math-rock (envision a collaboration between THE SPINANES and RUSH) since 1998. They are a Providence-based duo who perform in a wide array of configurations: drums and guitar, drums and bass, guitar and bass, guitar and guitar and samples- mostly all with melodic vocals. V FOR V resists the boring over-genrefication of indie/punk/underground rock and writes songs that range from prog-rock epics to songs with 2 guitars and quiet vocals with noise accompaniment. This is the future of math-rock, claiming the technical from it's sterile, unemotional and unresponsive stereotype. With a nod to '70s prog-rock, each song experiments with time changes, dynamics and structure. V FOR V are always on tour and have had the pleasure of rockin' the house with: THE NEED, DON CABALLERO, FUGAZI, LE TIGRE, THE BUTCHIES, JUNE OF 44, OOIOO, RAINER MARIA, and many more.
