Video of the Moment #2206: VANT

By on Friday, 21st October 2016 at 6:00 pm

Though they’ve relocated to London from Yorkshire, VANT haven’t lost their edge. The socially conscious band who released a new EP, ‘Karma Seeker’, back in the summer have a new music video for us today. You can read Steven’s review of ‘Karma Seeker’ through this link. ‘Peace & Love’ is their current single, which frontman and principal songwriter Mattie Vant describes this way:

We finished writing ‘Peace & Love’ in the wake of the Paris attacks. Atrocities like these are taking place worldwide on a daily basis, but it’s only when something happens so close to home that it truly grabs the full attention of our society. We live on a planet that has forgotten what the words ‘Peace & Love’ mean and what they stood for in the ’60s and ’70s. The power of the peace movement changed the world forever but our unity is starting to slip. ‘Peace & Love’ have become throwaway words, fashion statements, cheap symbols that have lost their value. We need to reconnect with their true meaning because, more than ever, we are living in a time that really does need ‘Peace & Love’.

They are currently on tour in October supporting You Me at Six. You can also catch them on tour in the UK in November, including their biggest show to date in London at Scala on the 29th. Their first gig next month is a Dr. Martens #STANDFORSOMETHING autumn tour show at Newcastle Cluny on the 12th of November. All their live dates are listed here on their Facebook.
