The best kept secret in music


"albinovega are here to reassure us that good rock music isnt dead"

albinovega are a rock band. John Kathman plays the guitar and does the vocals, Zach McCabe plays the drumkit, and Lee Cranford plays bass guitar. The band was formed in 2002 under the name Being The Shadow and containing completely different members. The band have since seen many faces and adopted many different music styles.
Their early work was a little too new wave for most tastes, but when "Who Owns It" came out in 2005, their fans felt that they really came into their own, comercially and artistically. The whole album had a more clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism, that really gives the songs a big boost.
they've been compared to radiohead and nirvana, but John's lyrics have a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor. The band anticipate the release of their new EP, "For The Gusto", their most accomplished Collection of songs, one being their undisputed masterpiece, "Piss Poor". The song is so catchy, most people probably dont listen to the lyrics, but they should because they aren't just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of friends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself. - nashville rock

blowing up lebarons
piss poor
breaking thru walls


Feeling a bit camera shy


my father and i were looking through his telescope one october evening in an open beanfield. being a fancy and expensive telescope, it had among other things a random star locator. it randomly located the star "vega". my father and i both were at awe to its etremely bright/white light, and its reddish center. my dad jokingly called it an "albinovega".

albinovega are a rock trio from cincinnati ohio and nashville tennessee. with influences ranging from radiohead to nirvana, incubus to james taylor, they rock out heavy with just enough emotion and irony to keep things original and interesting.
