A Vulture Wake is a new band featuring Chad Price (ALL/Drag The River), Joe Raposo (RKL/Lagwagon), Sean Sellers (Good Riddance/Real McKenzies) and Brandon D. Landelius (The Mag Seven). The band formed in early 2016 when Brandon sent several instrumental demos to Chad and asked if he would be interested in starting a new band with himself and Sean. Chad started working on melodies & lyrics almost immediately.
Needing a bass player Sean reached out to longtime friend and former bandmate in The Real McKenzies, Joe Raposo. Joe was in without even hearing a note. Over the next few months, demos were emailed back and forth, refinements were made and in May 2016 Chad, Sean and Joe traveled to Brandon’s home in Amarillo, Texas where they played the songs together for the first time. 2 days later they recorded a 10 song demo and began working on booking shows.
Their music is best described as honest, energetic, passionate, and at times technical punk rock with the songs always maintaining a strong sense of melody.
The band recorded their first full length album and a 3 song EP in January 2017 at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado. The album was released January 2018 with the EP following Spring 2018.
