Hey Kids, we’re stoked as hell to share the news that we are headed back to Europe this summer to celebrate our 10th year as a band with a tour! Check out the dates and if we’re coming to your town come out and skank hard with us! Click on the image below for all the details!
Fourteen months of hard work is about to be unleashed upon you! Come to the State Theatre in Downtown St. Pete (Central Ave and 7th St) on Saturday, 6/14 to listen to us play our new album “No More Heroes” in its entirety. Tickets are $10 at the door the day of the show, and are also available from Daddy Kool and Planet Retro. UNRB, Lying With Lions and Saganaki Bomb Squad are playing with us as well. All the bands have a limited number of tickets available for half price ($5) while they last. The first 300 people at the door will receive a copy of the new CD absolutely FREE! Keep up with all the news on our Facebook page and we hope to see you there – VOC
We were invited to play this year’s Sun Fest for the first time. The weather was awesome as we played for a large crowd of fans on the Main Stage right before Streetlight Manifesto and the Dropkick Murphys. If you were at the show, you also had an opportunity to pick up our new album “No More Heroes” as we made it available ahead of time just for these lucky VoC fans. Did you attend? If so, did you grab your copy of the CD? Let us know what you think about it on our Facebook page!
VoC had the pleasure of playing the 2014 Florida Music Festival in Orlando on Friday, April 25th. I was a great night playing immediately proceeding fellow Florida Ska Band Less Than Jake. We appreciate FMF having us back and we hope to play again next year. A ton of VOC fans caught our set this year, were you one of them? If so, hop over to our Facebook page and post any pics and videos you took!
We are proud to announce that the Tampa Bay Rowdies professional soccer team has chosen VoC for their 2013 Fall season soundtrack. They will be using “This Riot Used to be a Party” in their commercials which will air on 97X, our music will be played during games, and we will most likely play a concert on the field after an upcoming game!
Keep an eye open for more info, and let us know if you hear the commercial!
2012 came and went in a flash. We recorded, we toured, we kicked some ass! Hopefully some of you got to see us say goodbye to 2012 at our New Years Eve Show with Less Than Jake.
For 2013 we’re gearing up for another action-packed, fun-filled year and we promise to keep you posted on the details as they develop.
For the first part of the year we plan to keep the schedule light so we can write and record our 4th studio album. If all goes well we will have a shiny new album out for summer!
Whenever we start writing new material we have a habit of laying low for a while. This time we wanted to give our fans a little something to tide them over before we slipped away to start working on new songs. If you haven’t seen it already, head over to the vocska.com store and check our new EP “Decades”.
The new release features a song from each era in rock history. Buddy Holly to Weezer – 50′s pop to 90s grunge and beyond.
While we were working on songs for the EP another little unexpected surprise came out of it, quite by accident. We listened to hundreds of records and learned dozens of songs. Finally we narrowed it down to the 5 songs that would end up on the EP. But, when we were all finished, there was one more song that we had so much fun re-working that we just couldn’t let it go. So, while it doesn’t really fit the EP, we didn’t want to see it lost in the VOC vaults forever. That little gem is “What Makes You Beautiful” made famous by a group of young men called One Direction but made cool by us.
Dispatch: Victor Omega Charlie – Alpha One Three
Greetings from the Exosphere.
Your friendly neighborhood ska band is currently in orbit aboard our own X1 with important updates for Earth.
As you know, the single most important election in the history of human kind is fast approaching and while this signals eminent doom for many of you The VoC will be hiding safely aboard our brand new Space Recording Station — the first of it’s kind. Oh, don’t worry about us we’ve taken every precaution and spared no expense.
While we hideout for the election (and possibly the end of days) we plan to lay down some new songs on our state of the art tape recorders. Then, through the magic of technology, we will employ the latest computer software and a robot known as A.N.D.Y to convert these sounds to computer data.
That’s right! Before we say goodbye to the planet we’ve come to love so much we will release one final homage to the great times we had living among you.
A BRAND NEW EP!
Then it’s off to Betelgeuse.
We will share photos to mark this momentous occasion and, as soon as the EP is ready for your precious ears, we will blast it down from Outer Space! Pretty cool, huh?
There’s more: In addition to our usual antics we have a very exciting surprise for Halloween(or Samhain for our pagan friends across the pond)!
So, stay close to your computing machines and your smart telephones for what may very well likely be one of the best apocalypses of your whole life!
We’re back from Europe and ready to see some familiar faces! We’ve got bellies full of bangers and livers full of pints … and We’re ready for a welcome home show!
Come on out to the Local 662 in St. Pete this Saturday, the 8th for a night of punk, ska and cold beer! If you can’t make this one, we’ve got some other shows coming up, check the tour tab for details!
