The Vision of a Dying World

The Vision of a Dying World


Folk- inspired rock with an apocalyptic undertone. 3 part harmonies, timeless guitar melodies and a solid rythym section. We have been compared to Wilco, Iron and Wine, and Sufjan Stevens.


The Vision of a Dying World was formed in Las Vegas, NV by brothers Jackson and Keith Milgaten in 2003. After recording an endless amount of demos and playing scattered local shows, the two put out a self titled EP in 2004. Shortly after, they relocated to San Diego, CA with child hood friend Jeremy Scott. They spent the better part of the summer and fall recording their first full length album, "Feelin' Alive (Revived)", and toured regionally for the first time. "Feelin' Alive (Revived)" was nominated for Best Folk/Country Album of the year at the 2006 San Diego Music Awards and San Deigo City Beat called it "one of the best releases to come out of San diego since The Castanet's "Cathedral". Soon the band became a quartet (drummer Jona Tellez-Giron was now a full time member of the band) and began working on a new EP. "What You Are To Be You Now Become" was released to much critical praise and several regional tours ensued including one with folk-punk darlings Andrew Jackson Jihad. Of What You Are To Be... said, "this enigmatic band is able to quietly and subtly turn even the most tragic experience into something harmonious and inspirational" and gave it an 8 out of 10. The band also began to get opening slots for national touring bands like The Robot Ate Me, Peter and The Wolf, Dear Nora, Kind of Like Spitting, and Viking Moses. 2007 saw the release of their second full length "The Vision of a Dying World and The Grammar Lamb" of which said, "think Sufjan and Tom Waits locked in a room for a few hours", a nomination for Best Alternative Band at the San Diego Music Awards, extensive regional touring and local shows, and opening slots for the likes of The Drones, King Kong, Devastations, The Teeth, Honeycut, White Magic and Sean Hayes. In the fall another EP entitled "Skelephone Call from the Eastern Side" was recorded and is set for release on December 14th followed by a tour with Tuscon, AZ based alt alt country outfit Golden Boots.
