The Suburban Vamps from Baltimore, Maryland, USA, are a band on the cutting edge of an ever changing music scene.
Featuring guitarist/vocalist Tony Leicht, Bassist Darren Denenberg, and drummer Todd Dring, the band first formed as a side project to find something missing in their respective bands. Simultaneously influenced by the Sex Pistols and Cheap Trick, monster movies and Hollywood tabloids, their first demo and was quickly hailed as the next big power-pop-punk outfit by the local press.
The Suburban Vamps soon grew to be a hometown phenomenon, and a second demo proved that the band was no fluke. Having outgrown punk's bad-on-purpose aesthetic, The Vamps were ready to remake rock in their own image, and they had the imagination (and the Atari collection) to prove it.
Their first full-length independent album, "Happy Songs of Despair", engineered by the same group responsible for the Spin Doctors and Deep Purple, led to their song "Surf Vamps" being included on the Sony Playstation game "Roadrash-Jailbreak".
Their second album, "Positively Negative" was produced by Drew Mazurek, best known for his work with Linkin Park and David Bowie. He also subsequently produced their latest release, "Time Heals Nothing", which has spawned the crossover hit "Vampire Girl" as included on the soundtrack to the cult vampire film "The Vampires of Bloody Island".
