Grab a slicing synth, guttural kick, crunching guitar and a pinch of dubstep A.D.D.-ness and you've got the recipe for Electro/Rock-band, vAnity mAchine. Pulling from a background in classical music, electronic, rock and hip hop, vAnity mAchine delivers a sound that kicks the eardrums while maintaining a mainstream edge. Frontman and producer Kevin Hastings has achieved international success at a young age sharing the stage with such artists as RIHANNA, JAY-Z, EMINEM, LIZ PHAIR, LADY GAGA, ADAM LAMBERT, FALL OUT BOY, CHRIS BROWN, NE-YO, TRAVIS BARKER, TAIO CRUZ, TOM MORELLO… Kevin has performed in over 35 countries world wide and has rocked such iconic venues as London's Wembly Stadium, New York City's Madison Square Garden and Los Angeles' Staples Center. And now he is taking his immense musical background and turning it into a sound of his own that he calls vAnity mAchine.

vAnity mAchine has been working on their latest EP titled "duAlity" fusing together live drums, guitar and piano with intense synths and thought provoking lyrics. Pulling from the broken economic/social/religious scene that is America, brothers Kevin and Jon Hastings wrote every lyric to challenge the apathetic state of mind they see in the world around them. With such songs as "Bullet Through My Brain" and "Lights" pointing words directly at America's religious and political leaders. "duAlity" also has an introspective angle with such songs as "Orbiting" and "Lost" aiming at the heart center of finding one's place in the universe. In a heart-wrenching cacophony of sound destined for world domination, wobble-rock group vAnity mAchine halts at nothing to bring a fresh perspective in today's ever changing musical scene.
