VANT Unveil Video for PEACE & LOVE





Forthcoming tour dates include biggest headline show to date at London’s Scala


“They’re incredible live, really exciting to watch and they just craft these perfect rock and roll songs, with huge hooks, that you can’t get out of your head.” – Annie Mac, Radio 1

“Lo-fi modern grunge from the Big Smoke with something – scratch that, a lot, to say.” – Kerrang!

“Giddy grunge at 100mph.” – NME

“Channel the likes of Pixies, the Manics, the Strokes and the Vines.” – Sunday Times Culture

“Their trajectory is an unstoppable freight train.” – DIY

“Their future is now.” – Dork



With their biggest headline tour to date on the horizon as well as shows as guests to You Me At Six and Nothing But Thieves, VANT are stepping up a gear as the year accelerates to a close. The quartet’s latest accomplishment comes with the release of their new single ‘PEACE & LOVE’ which has been chosen as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record at Radio 1. The single comes as VANT are finishing work on their debut album which will be released early next year.


A life-affirming, rallying cry for global environmental awareness and empathetic behaviour, ‘PEACE & LOVE’ juxtaposes the beauty of its message with a cacophony of sound as VANT hurtle forwards with their innate balance of melody and aggression.


As vocalist/guitarist Mattie Vant explainsWe 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’.”


Now available to download and stream, ‘PEACE & LOVE’ will also be released on a limited edition red 7” format on November 25th. The single will be backed with the brand new b-side ‘ALL OUR BABIES’.


The London-based quartet’s impressive accomplishments have covered killer sets at festivals including Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds and Bestival; live shows as far afield as Japan and Norway; continuing support at Radio 1; 4 million streams at Spotify; and shows with bands as varied as Royal Blood, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Hinds and FIDLAR. Along the way, their growing discography has demonstrated their ability to deliver songs of real meaning which organically flow between punk, grunge and garage rock.
