A BIT ABOUT HEY VANITY - Formed in the summer of 2013 and already signed to UK independent label Small Town Records, the boys have achieved a huge amount in a very small space of time. Their first tour was supporting UK rock breakthrough sensations Don Broco and Mallory Knox in February and March, before releasing their debut EP 'Breathe, Bleed, Grow' which was critically acclaimed by Kerrang, Rock Sound and Big Cheese magazines. Their debut single 'Breath Bleed Grow' gained strong support from Scuzz and Kerrang TV, XFM and Kerrang Radio, followed by further live dates with Burn The Fleet and an appearance at Takedown Festival.
