We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Veio’s new song “Ghost” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s upcoming full-length album Infinite Light / Desperate Shadows, which is scheduled to be released March 2017.
The band comments on the song: “‘Ghost’ examines one’s inner struggle with self-endangering behaviors perpetuated by addiction. The track explores the difficult transition away from precarious thought patterns perpetuated by habit and routine.”

Starting a rock band in high school is typical. Keeping with it and growing as a rock musician, post-high school angst – not so common. Portland-based alt-metal band, Veio, prove that good things can stem from your teenage years, but that’s just the start. Melding prog, metal and hard rock, Veio conjures up their own brand of hard rocking tracks.
Brett (Drums) and Cam (Vox, Guitar) began performing as Veio in college, having played together in high school. Having cycled through musicians and placing ads for new bandmates on Craigslist, while forming a solid fanbase in the NW scene, the band has finally solidified their secret recipe with their current lineup. With the addition of Trae (Lead Guitar) and Kris (Bass) came sonic maturation. The freshly formed Veio lineup brings a complex, heavy sound, with notable time signature changes and vocal anthems that peak during choruses, but don’t fizz out. Their sound works to unite both prog rock fans and metal fans, alike, with their carefully crafted song structure, tone and master level of musicianship. With the Pacific NW scene already under their heavy handed spell, the band is branching out to an international community with their upcoming release. With Portland, Eugene and Seattle headlining dates coming up next month, the band is gearing up for their West Coast tour in March. Following up on their 2010 EP, Victus Per Leo, and their 2013 debut full length, The Antidote, Infinite Light / Desperate Shadows is the first studio release from the band’s newly formed lineup.
