Created in 2014, Villain of the Story started as a mere local metalcore band. Formed of a few friends and two brothers just out of high school, VOTS Recorded an EP with Johnny Franck (Bilmuri/ex Attack Attack!) and have since recorded two albums together. The band signed with Stay Sick Recordings to debut their first full length. After some DIY touring the band opened a portion of an I Prevail tour with Wage War and Assuming We Survive. After leaving SSR, the album ‘Ashes’ was their first effort as a fully independent band since their EP. With numbers being higher across the board when compared to their debut album, fans eagerly await a follow up release that is currently being worked on.
