VEXED take on the A-Z challenge

Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the various artists around the world! Today it is the turn of VEXED to take us behind the scenes by tackling the challenge!

A song that made you want to make music?

Heavy Lies the CrownKing 810

Best rider you’ve had?

Free bar and Dominos Pizza

Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?

Meeting and working with CJ McMahon

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

“Don’t mistake prejudice for advantage. Predatory behaviour is not an act of kindness.”

Easiest song you wrote?

None of them were easy. We’re all perfectionist and writing music we’re collectively happy with is a real challenge.

 Favourite song in your set?


Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?

We’ve been lucky enough to work with one of our favourite artists already. However if we could work with another we’d love to collab with Frankie Palmeri or David Gun.

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Funding it.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Jay’s middle name is Jäger

Jokes you have in the band?

We’re all massive fans of Simon Pegg films and so we’re always quoting Shaun of the dead, Hot Fuzz and more at the most inappropriate times.

Key to writing a song?

Write music you actually enjoy. Don’t write what you think other people will like or want.

Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?

300 Miles. Only to have our set cut 3 songs in.

Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?

Honestly, Thy Art Is Murder. They are all the most down to earth and genuine guys who we have nothing but total respect for.

New band you’d recommend?

Imminent Annihilation

Opening for this band would be ideal?

Thy Art is Murder

Place you’d most like to tour?


Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?

If you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree. It will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?

We called it Elite because it’s how we feel when we’re all together with our fans. Nothing can better that.

See us live at?

We’re headlining The Black Heart in Camden on the 28th June.

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?

100% disagree. There’s so much more variation in styles and image now. You can really find music that truly represents you.

Unusual merchandise?

We don’t have anything unusual at the moment but we have considered doing Vexed underwear.

Variations you’d like to do on any of your songs?

Make them heavier

What do your fans mean to you?

They are family.

X-rays or any treatments needed for band related injuries?

No broken bones, yet.

You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?


Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?

Alligator. Its an animal that bides its time and when you least expect it, it’ll cause chaos. Even if you don’t like them, you can’t help but stare.
