Biography

Bound to music with freakish fervor and delusional spirit, The Vingins are doomed. Doomed to live inside the fourth dimension while pirating their sounds into the third. “Drawing on Jimi Hendrix, Iggy Pop and Led Zeppelin, The Vingins have come roaring out of a basement, bringing a blast of punkish psychedelic rock 'n' roll to Lincoln and, with some luck, far beyond” (Lincoln Journal Star). With their newly released self-titled EP, an intense, melodic collection of avant-pysch garage properties that are spiny to the touch and vastly spacious to the eye, The Vingins reroute the archetypal circuitry of music into an explosive, and electrifying performative experience.

Born out of an acute fever dream in 2009, the trio (Derek Outson - Guitar/Vocals, Shea Carlson - Drums, & Sam Will - Bass) arose from their broken form and came to a collective conscious that music could be painful, impassioned, and humorous all at the same time. At College, the three began sharing their similar musical tastes of 60's psychedelia with each other, and expressed their love for flashy, transformative glitz-punk.

The local music scene became attached to the boys’ penetrative sound and seismic live show; soon after, The Vingins captured the eye of several Chicago venue bookers and festival promoters. Music critic L. Kent Wolgamott interviewed The Vingins after catching their performance at the Lincoln Exposed Festival and wrote, “With any luck, The Vingins' name will soon be known outside Lincoln. The trio is booking a summer tour to Colorado, Kansas City, Iowa and Chicago” (Lincoln Journal Star). And so, The Vingins formed with ardor, having no rules except to be loud enough to scare onlookers, and excite the universe with honesty in music.
