The band has toured throughout the US and Europe headlining and opening for musical legends such as Alice Cooper and Slash, as well as respected and established bands Buckcherry, Fuel, Hardcore Superstar, Michael Schenker, Enuff Z’Nuff, and punk legend Richie Ramone. They even played for the NFL performing as part of the Superbowl Village Show in Indianapolis, IN, in 2012 for over 73,000 people.
After an absence from the music scene for a few years, due to personnel changes, intense writing/demo sessions and the world shutting down from the COVID epidemic, the band emerges stronger than ever with their new studio EP, Purgatory Awaits. Three years in the making, the release features six new songs, two of them performed by the band members. Four of the songs feature guest drummer Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros fame). “Each And Every Day” was also was mixed by Malcolm Springer (Tantric, Collective Soul, Matchbox Twenty). Ven describes the new album by stating, “Simply some of the best songs Venrez has written and recorded yet. From the first single to ‘Each And Every Day,’ which takes no prisoners, to the pretty ballad ‘Gin Fizz.'”
