The Varmints

BandRock

The Varmints are a three-piece psychedelic rock and roll band. Our goal ultimately is to revive purity and emotionalism back into rock music as a whole. We play it all. From heavy metal to soft trip rock and are not scared of playing instrumentally and promise to make sure you get your dollars worth

Biography

The current lineup of the Varmints has been together for three months after replacing Danny Morrison(Bassist on "Lucid Hallucination") with Nick Perich. However, miles and zach have played with eachother for over 4years replacing numerous bassists. The Varmints' music consists of hard and soft rock fused with psychedelia and some metal. Our bread and butter is playing live. We will play anytime anywhere for any price as long as there are people present. We write about love, life, death, and mind expansion. Influences include: The Beatles, Black Sabbath, The Doors, The Meat Puppets, Strawberry Alarm Clock Metallica, the Jefferson Airplane, Nirvana and many more. What sets us apart from most bands out there is that we arent riding the screamo puss-rock bandwagon. We dont usually play covers because we have so much of our own material. We actually know how to play our instruments and can make more sound than most power trios.
