Voice Of Addiction is a politically charged Chicago based band. They are spreading their anti-capitalistic message through rock, punk and ska songs. Their goal set forth is simple; to make audiences world-wide open their eyes to the injustices around them and the globe.
To individually change the world to any degree is quite a challenge. The only way true change has happened is through cooperation and determination. V.O.A. does not expect to change the world, but rather with cooperation with others to attempt to make a dent. Voice Of Addiction’s music is a combination of punk ethos and attitudes mixed with rock styles and ska breakdowns. Voice Of Addiction’s message is said best through their name. “Everyone is addicted, whether is be drugs, alcohol, religion, sex money, etc. Our job is to be the voice that puts these things on the table of discussion that otherwise might be overlooked. We might be best understood by not wanting to reinvent the wheel, but rather wanting to dismantle it!” Quotes vocalist and bassist Ian Tomele.
Describing V.O.A. is a challenge of its own. The band is comprised of three different and distinct personalities which give them such an eclectic feel, although they come together musically with such precision and direction. V.O.A.’s dynamic progressions and abrupt starts and stops put them in a unique category all their own. A piece of Voice Of Addiction which is truly original is the melodic, harmonic and rhythmic rises and falls that the band demands. The intricate writing and musicianship that is brought out through their collective formal training, and the emotion that is portrayed while performing their songs makes this band stand out in the crowd.
Voice Of Addiction is determined to keep moving on to bigger and better challenges. Whatever it may be, it will be found, overcome, and put to rest by perseverance, dedication and cooperation. To all audiences everywhere; keep your ears to the ground and your fists in the air……...it’s never too late to start a revolution!
