A bunch of guys in a room with no instruments are going through the same thing.
“We’re playing this bluesy song and it’s fucking amazing,” the band says.
“You know what, it’s like, ‘Oh, wow.
That was great.'”
It’s a moment captured in a short, three-minute clip from the band’s upcoming album, Varsity Blues, which they’ve been teasing for months.
Velvet Underground and the Black Keys have collaborated on some pretty great songs in the past, including the Love and Rockets hit In the Air Tonight.
But Vulcan are a unique case: they’ve built their catalog around a single song.
The band’s most recent album, 2012’s Eyes Wide Shut, was recorded entirely in studio, and the results are a sonic explosion that has seen them catapult to stardom.
They have two full albums under their belt, and while they’ve yet to release anything on the mainstream level, they’ve built a cult following and are getting the word out.
In a statement to Billboard, the band said: “Vulcans’ new album is our most ambitious yet, and we’re really excited about its potential to inspire a new generation of musicians to take their music into the future.”
The band will hit the road next month, with dates including shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Philadelphia.
