Victim Of Modern Age

The words "Victim of Modern Age" were first combined by author Anthony Burgess in his novel A Clockwork Orange. They emerged from those pages in 2001 as the name of a musical group which left the Lake Charles region of Louisiana, the area where the band formed, and relocated in that year to a place teeming with musicians, Lafayette, LA, home of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Originally called "Ponder," the group changed their name to Victim of Modern Age or "VOMA" because it was something that they felt was "more appropriate." The artistic explosion being experienced by the small college town was enhanced by the music of guitarist/vocalist Bobby Nixon, drummer Dan Robertson, and bassist Nathan Carnes. After relocation the group then recorded a four-song self-titled EP which, at the urging of a friend, was mailed to Universal Warning Records. The UWR label agreed to release the record in June of 2002 as the first of a two- or three-record deal. Three months after their debut release Allen Clements from Claymore was invited to join on guitar and vocals. Work on a full-length record began in October of 2002, resulting in Channels Like Capillaries. Between studio sessions, the band toured the East coast and returned to resume recording sessions. In May of 2003, the rhythm section of bassist Carnes and drummer Robertson was replaced by Jason Decou and David Leonard, respectively, from the band One Common Voice. As they both were living in the same community, the band officially cemented their base of operations in the south central college town of Lafayette, LA.

Victim of Modern Age have performed with a number of other acts including Benton Falls, Hey Mercedes, Liars Academy, Avec, We Are Childhood Equals, Mae, Bright and Hollow Sky, Red Animal War, Jet by Day, fellow Universal Warning artist Snakes and Music, Twothirtyeight, the Movielife, Brand New, the North Atlantic, Brandston, and many others.

The group's fusion of punk and heavy metal with jazz overtones has a political and worldly message. Singer Allen Clements is quoted as saying "Nature and economics are synonymous and repetitive," with the lyrics to their first full-length record's title track -- "The channels that move filthy money through the world are the capillaries that move blood through our bodies" -- bringing that point home with an exclamation mark. In 2004, drummerShawn Gachassin joined the group. ~ Joe Viglione, Rovi
