Since forming in 2011, The Vigil have drawn comparisons to Queens of the Stone Age & Nirvana. Having established themselves on the Bristol live circuit and with several tours under their belts, the band has been building a steady following at a grass roots level paying their dues. 2016 is set to be an exciting year for the band with more touring, new music videos and the release of their debut album.
The Vigil have self-released two EP’s ‘Vigil of One’ and ‘Serpent’s Kiss’, filmed a video for their single ‘The Remainder‘ and were featured on Volume 1 of Bristol Radar Magazine’s Compilation Album. They recently announced details of their debut album ‘Save Our Souls‘, which will be released in early 2016 and was produced by Nigel Pulsford from the band Bush.

Olly Smith – vocals & guitar
