VOTE for VEIN

Just like a political trio, VEIN are frequently on tour. Last year, they covered thousands of kilometres and played in eleven countries on three continents, thereby developing their repertoire. After all, the audience is essential for a band, so VEIN were out there catching votes and spreading their musical programme at countless concerts. A programme in search of variety, open to any kind of new influences, comprising down-to-earth grooves just as much as breezy poetry, humour and intricate constructions – and is unmistakably part of VEIN.
