Beyond the Woods Meets: Vigilantes

The story is simple. After a chance meeting by being the last 4 in a Mario Kart tournament, Vigilantes became friends. They quickly put down the pads, picked up their guitars and never looked back. Not only will they be performing at Beyond the Woods in August, they will also be at Liquor in July for our festival warm up party!

We caught up with them to ask some of your questions…

So you’re performing at Liquor in July – have you done other gigs since lockdown or will this be your first?

Yeah! We supported Mark Morriss from Bluetones a couple of times which kicked off the rust, but these are our first headliners. Nervous!

Describe your music style in three words?

Big vocal harmonies

Where did your band name come from?

It means Lifeguard in Portuguese.

Which artists would you say are your main influences?

I’ve always loved Van Gogh, Da Vinci & Monet.

What’s your favourite thing about being in a band?

The feeling of completing songs or a live set to play to people!

What is your biggest goal?

My best goal was a 40 yard screamer I did when I was 12, but realistically London’s O2 Arena would be where I’m content.

What have you been up to lately?

We’ve just finished mixing and mastering our next releases, so just getting into the throws of everything again!

and finally:

Will we ever be an interplanetary species?

Yes, 1000%.

What’s the best way to eat eggs?

Next to your lover early in the morning. 

What are your spirit animals?

Curly: Fox // Alex: Goat // Joe: Sloth // Ryan: Giraffe
