Lead track “Breathe In Breathe Out” packs a lot of punch in its two minutes running time, making it the perfect introduction to Truth About Vegas’ Alcoholiday EP. It’s a bite sized chunk of guitar led pop punk that’s accessible enough for consumption at the first time of hearing.
Hailing from South West London Truth About Vegas are made up of Joe Sharman on lead vocals and guitar, Jack Gee on bass and vocals, Sean Bowen on drums, and Jacob Howell on guitars. Formed in late 2012 they’ve been busy gigging over the last year before working on their debut EP released in November.
With Jack also taking the lead on bookings it’s there that you can pick up a measure of Truth About Vegas’s ambition. For at a stage when many other bands would be looking to pick up the odd local gig or two in February they embark on a UK tour ranging from Swansea to Sheffield. One of those dates was to support popular pop punk fellow travellers Twenty Twenty at London’s O2 Islington on February 20th. With that band calling it a day Truth About Vegas are stepping up to fill their shoes by headlining themselves. Promises to be quite a show.
