Merrick, New York (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
New York heavy metal band, VileBorn, (facebook.com/VileBorn) is no stranger to making friends with other notable acts through the Internet. Through social media the group was able to make several important connections in the music industry and various local music scenes across the country. Their latest collaboration is with popular industrial-metal group Generation Empty (facebook.com/GenerationEmpty) from Philadelphia.
The collaboration begins with the long-anticipated release of Generation Empty’s industrial remix for VileBorn’s underground smash-hit, “Bastard” and will culminate in a complete takeover of “Connie’s Ric Rac” club in South Philadelphia on December 21st.
Generation Empty formed in Philadelphia in 2008. Their independent release of their first EP 'Incubated', rocketed the group to the forefront of the Philadelphia industrial scene. They soon began sharing the stage with bands like Combichrist (Out of Line/ Metropolis Records) and The Birthday Massacre (Metropolis Records). In 2011, they caught the attention of producer Xris Smack of MindSwerve Studios (Mindless Self Indulgence) and began to focus on writing and recording their new EP, which is set to release in 2013.
The remix, which takes the band’s hit song and totally transforms it for industrial/ EDM audiences is, as the band describes it, “a way to expand our influence to people who otherwise wouldn’t have checked us out,” says drummer Z Choppa. “Gen Empty has become some of our best friends in the business, and now that they’re working with Xris Smack, I see big things for them. Really pumped to be working with this whole crew.”
VileBorn has been referred to as “the fastest rising band in New York.” Through aggressive touring, active social media, and of course, a healthy dose of notoriety, the band has been able to build a devoted fan base spanning across the entire United States and the rest of the World.
Known for their energetic, theatrical, and sometimes-violent performances, VileBorn frequently shares the stage with notable national acts in the heavy metal world. The band has played with groups such as Straight Line Stitch (E1 Music – Universal Music Group), 40 Below Summer (London-Sire Records – Warner Music Group), and Gwar-side-project Mobile Deathcamp (Turkey Vulture Records - Universal Music Group). Since the band’s inception in May of 2012, VileBorn has become renowned as one of the most hard working and entertaining bands in the country.
