“Growing up, ‘Hey Man Nice Shot’ was one of the songs that seemed to resonate with all of us. Twenty-five years later it’s as relevant and recognizable as it was then. We wanted to capture Filter’s dark in your face sound, while a putting our own spin on it,” says Veio bassist Kris Lewis.
The cover song comes on the heels of the release of Veio’s new album Vitruvian on June 19 through Silent Majority Group. Led by strong singles “Flare Of Defiance” that broke the Top 30 at Active Rock Radio and “Crux” released in late May and impacting active rock radio the week of July 20, anticipation for the album has helped the band recently amass a strong following.
That includes more than 1.3 million streams on Spotify, 1 million video views and has led Vitruvian to be the #2 most added album on the Metal Contraband charts as well as the #3 most added Loud Rock album at college rock radio.
