VTT Returns From Tour; Announces More Live Dates With Benefit Shows, Festival appearances

VTT Returns From Tour; Announces More Live Dates With Benefit Shows, Festival appearances
Band continues benefit work along with two area festival appearances

New Jersey melodic metal quartet VTT recently returned from the three week “Victims Of Sin Summer Tour” and have already confirmed six more shows in the coming months, including a fund raiser for the National Wildlife Refuge, a fundraiser for Ronnie James Dio’s Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund and appearances at The Power & The Fury Festival and Richmond Metalfest among others. The band continues to support the late-2009 released ‘Symptoms Of Sin’, the band’s third album. The eight track release was produced by Biohazard’s Billy Graziadei at his Underground Sound Studios.

VTT will play an all acoustic set Aug. 15 in Vernon, NJ as part of a fund raiser for the disaster in the Gulf. All proceeds will go to the National Wildlife Refuge Association, a non-profit dedicated to conservation of America’s wildlife for future generations. Meanwhile, VTT will also participate in an Aug. 27 tribute to the recently-fallen Ronnie James Dio in Clifton, NJ. The New Jersey natives will share the stage with three other bands, paying tribute to the legendary vocalist with tributes all night, and benefits will go to Ronnie James Dio’s Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund. The organization’s goal is to “reduce the risk of developing life threatening cancers by offering access to preventative medical services.”

Meanwhile, as part VTT’s recently-completed “Victims Of Sin Summer Tour,” the band took part in East End Hot Rods’ Second Annual Autism Speaks fundraiser show, and a clip of the band playing their Symptoms Of Sin track “Wake Of The White Devil” is available online here. Tracks from all three of the band’s releases are available on the VTT MySpace Page, including the official video for 'Symptoms Of Sin' lead track "The Victim."

“The best thing to happen to the band was getting Biohazard and Suicide City guitarist Billy Graziadei to produce their new album, 'Symptoms of Sin.' The hardcore hero gelled well with the group, getting the best performances VTT have ever laid down on tape.” –
“Plain and simple the music is an aggression of brutality that contains this rock n’ roll vibration with heavy metal influence wrapped around giving it that much needed breath of fresh air.” – Metal Maniacs

“Take a second, pause, and check back into metal’s roots, and Symptoms Of Sin in a way acts like a reminder to the glory days, with a classic sort of evil in the mix. Fans of loud heavy metal need to check out VTT now.” –

“…songs that stand out as being quite good, solid metal tunes.” – Pure Grain Audio

“VTT’s gritty sensibilities and memorable hooks hit hard and are bound to leave an impression on anyone with an ear for the sound of today’s aggression.” – Hot Indie News

“I can totally see these guys gaining mainstream recognition…much more palatable than your average over the top aggressive modern metal album” – All Metal Resource

“…this troupe’s cavalcade of strong riffs is sprinkled with a bevy of intriguing acoustic flourishes (“Looking For Serenity”, “Deleted Scenes”) providing the album a proper foundation that supports its constant switches in mood and atmosphere.” – Gears Of Rock
