NASHVILLE, TN (April 9, 2018) – Big Machine/John Varvatos Records proudly announces the signing of the UK’s PRETTY VICIOUS to its roster. Hailing from Merthyr Tydfil in the valleys of Wales, band members Jarvis Morgan (bass), Tom McCarthy (guitar), Brad Griffiths (vocals and guitar) and Elliot Jones (drums) may all be under the age of 21 but their music and presence has the power of a seasoned world class rock band.
Paste magazine declares “Pretty Vicious is a band that’s just suddenly realizing how powerful their music truly is; with every scream and guitar screech, they’re one step closer to replicating the arena rock success of their forefathers,” adding “they have the songs, anthemic and heavy, as well as a youthful zeal that feels like a breath of fresh air.”
“This band lives up to its name and I cannot wait for these lethal young men to come and conquer the U.S. The British are coming…,” said Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta.
John Varvatos commented “Pretty Vicious is one of the most exciting bands I’ve seen in the last 10 years. They have the songs, the power, and the attitude to become one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. Get ready to rock!”
“We’re absolutely buzzing to work with Big Machine and John Varvatos and can’t wait to finally play in the States with their full support and belief behind us,” said Pretty Vicious.
Pretty Vicious has been widely supported by radio throughout Europe with BBC’s Radio 1 and Xfm giving the band extensive airtime.
