Canadian quintet VAULTRY have broken the mold of modern melodic alt-rock with their 2017 full-length album, Eulogy. An ode to a fallen friend, the record serves as a heartbreaking reflection on extreme loss and the grief that follows. You can listen to Eulogy in its entirety below.
The record takes the listener through an engaging and touching journey and tells the story of their friendship with bandmate Chasen Fraser, who lost his battle with cancer last year. The record is a varied, atmospheric and it peaks with a series of emotional bursts. You’re going to need to dive into the lyrics to truly appraciate it and understand the wider context, but once you get it, you’ll find that this is one of the most rewarding albums of this year. “Eugloy” is exactly the debut full length album VAULTRY needed to make.
Formed in 2014, Vaultry have developed a brooding, vocal-driven indie rock sound, backed by captivating emotional hooks, and a giant anthemic score. This Victoria-based melodic alt-rock band prides itself on atmospheric textures, passionate vocals, and relentless rhythm and drum sections. Since their inception, the band’s previous releases and constant performances throughout Canada have fostered an expansive and dedicated fan base both locally and internationally.
Vaultry has recently released a new album, Eulogy, as a dedication to their late guitarist Chasen Fraser. The band’s latest release tells the story of Chasen’s life, growing up transgender and ultimately being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 25. The album is a collection of songs written by Chasen during the last few months of life in his hospice residence in Victoria. The remainder of the tracks were written by the band upon his passing.
Showcasing sung and spoken word vocals, explosive percussions, and dynamic guitars, Vaultry strive to connect to crowds across the globe and cut to the emotional core of their listeners.
