- Funk Vigilante Bio -
Funk Vigilante is unique among their peers on the west coast of Canada. Rather than taking cues from the endless parade of indie-pop and singer/songwriter acts they have elected to push the boundaries of punk, metal, hip-hop, electronic and needless to say, funk genres of music. All the while the band has their own unique stylistic energy that can't be labeled.
In 2009 the band released their first record "Civil Disobedience" and embarked upon several tours of Canada, sharing the stage with acts such as Protest the Hero, Thrice, Dayglo abortions and Ninjaspy. Their epic first single "Worst President Ever" received acclaim from media outlets all the way from the U.S. to the middle east.
In early 2012 the band released their next major single "Internet Fight Song", addressing Internet Censorship around the world. Amazingly, the song received support from notable international E-sports figureheads such as Day(9) and Total Biscuit.
The band has recently played Vancouver's infamous 420 rally, exposing their music and message to thousands of people. They have also just released their latest single "Today Is The Day", a theatrical heavy metal anthem about the Apocalypse, which also celebrates the common theme of living for the moment in their own unique and somewhat quirky manner.
Funk Vigilante continues to thrive and evolve, perfecting their craft and bringing their no-holds-barred stage show and unique energy to stages and speakers all around. One thing is certain, Funk Vigilante is relentless in their passion for creating something primal, real and straight from the soul. This is not a band to be swayed by fleeting flavour of the week trends.
