The video was filmed at Tiger Lab Studios and was directed by Ron Thunderwood, who stated "I feel really lucky to have worked on this- it's been the coolest challenge I've met as a director... mixing practical and CG effects, we really got to create another world."
Dave began flying to Los Angeles from Chicago twice a month to build something new, original, and undeniable. Russ then reached out to Shawn Patterson (former guitarist for Old Fashioned Beatdown). Shawn was the perfect fit, and the three began sending demos to each other that would become the foundation of VYCES. After a few writing sessions, they decided to go into the studio with Augustus Cryns (producer of Stitched Up Heart, XO Stereo, The Dead Rabbits, and Westfield Massacre), and also featured Mark James Klepaski (Formerly of Breaking Benjamin, and Lifer) on bass.
After a year of writing and recording the band has finished 22 songs. VYCES has sonically created a solid blend of Active Rock and Metal. Dave describes the soul of the songs through his lyrics as exploring the darker side of human emotion and behavior. "It's something everyone can relate to because everyone has experienced some form of hurt, betrayal, weakness, hate, addiction, and/or lack of acceptance" says singer Naruszewicz. "It’s
also the fuel that drives us to become stronger, get better, and overcome the flaws we've built in our minds."
In October 2016, VYCES released their debut EP DEVILS and released a music video for the single “DEVIL.” The band also co-headlined THE HELLRZZR TOUR in October and November which trekked across the U.S performing in 29 cities in 33 days.
