The majority of Vigil Wolves current members Bryan, Kyle, Leland, Jacob and Forrest had played together in various bands through out the years leading up to the inception of VW now located in Portland, with roots going back to the early 2000’s. During this time, the three founding members of Vigil Wolves, along with their respective bands at the time, were responsible for helping birth and cultivate a very lively youth scene on the Central Oregon Coast that saw shows in local dives and rentals draw crowds of hundreds and bring in bands (and fans) from all over the country, cementing themselves as important figures in the Oregon Coast DIY Metal and Hardcore scene of these early days.
It’s this creative energy and voracious passion that has finally paid off allowing them to realize the dream of putting together a tour that incorporates shows with national acts that are being booked now; as well as a selection of new songs for their debut EP, Vacant Hands, which was recorded and produced independently by the band and engineered by guitarist, Kyle Gilmer, in his home studio. This was released digitally on June 24th, 2014 and is gaining momentum, popularity and plenty of social media attention.
