Vibravoid plays its own brand of very special psychedelic/acid rock and has been going now for quite a number of years, and it s still going very strong….
So, one fine night, around end of spring 2014 I get a call from Christian ( whom started the band and composes most of the music);they were at the moment in Valencia (Spain) while on a just started three weeks tour of France and Spain
He went on saying they had just lost their then current drummer, whom had to be flown back home with health issues…so…
….to make a very long story short, the band asked me to fly the morning after to Barcelona and finish the tour with them; obviously without having the time to rehearse or anything…literally ,straight from the airport to the club. Some of you might call this, a very relaxed way of joining a band!
Previous to that I had met and heard the band since when I was playing with the Atomic Workers, we did a back to back tour of Italy for about three weeks some time before, two or three years earlier .
So, I decided to go for it and everything turned out so good that we ended up playing together for the remaining dates of 2014 and furthermore also in 2015; it was basically non stop touring and the band did then their longest tours so far.
There are sometimes moments in life, where quick decisions have to be made; one could easily pull off and say no, take the easier way out…however some of the most memorable events and things take place when you do not plan them; so, try not to be afraid of the unknown, work hard and be prepared, so that whenever chances come your way, you ll be able to capitalize on them
I had a great time with these guys both on stage and off stages, hanging out in crazy situations, hardly sleeping and touring and playing a lot.
I wish them all the best, and if they happen to play close by your town, do yourself a favour and check them out.
Following are a few live videos; the first one from Magdeburg (Germany), then Berlin (Germany) and the last one from Athens(Greece), including also a short drumsolo.
Hope you’ll enjoy as much as I did!
