Angels of Vice is a hard hitting, high-energy juggernaut of a rock band birthed in the San Francisco Bay fog. AOV has been beathing life into the local scene since their inception in 2009 with growing steam and fervor every year. In a very short span they’ve managed to headline and co-headline such notable venues as The Great American Music Hall, The Bottom of the Hill, New Parish, and The Roxy Theater down in Hollywood.
Al Dizon, Mark Raymundo, and Jayson De La Cruz were a tight knit group of musicians from a former band looking for a new sound and heavier presence. They first approached Lisa Mongelli for her thick sounding John Bonham drumming, unlike many other female drummers in her arena. Anthony Nielsen completed the set with his devil-may-care charisma and drive to vocally challenge himself. Once the pieces were in place, there was no stopping their supercharged manic energy.
The most recent achievements of Angels of Vice include a full length album entitled All Good Things and a successful release of their single, We Are The 99. The latter was recorded as an anthem for the current Occupy movement sweeping the world. AOV wants to give a voice to those who are disaffected, disillusioned, and wanting to celebrate life regardless.
