Venus Infers makes you want to stop eating sushi, but then again, you kinda have to anyway.

Biography

"Venus Infers have single-handedly taken all the things that you love about music and executed a sound that is so natural, so precisely its own flavor of rock genius, I am completely smitten. They move you the way bands like Coldplay, Radiohead, and The Killers do, with a grasp on what connects people and the common thread that bonds how we feel and the choices we make. All this and they make it seem effortless. With a buzz louder than a summertime beehive it is no surprise that you cant seem to have a indie music conversation that doesnt spotlight this revolutionary band. Passionate and aloof in their execution of each an every song, rock and roll has a new catalyst. One who is unafraid and will soon be deeply embedded into rock and roll history."
- Kristin Anderson, IndieMusicUniverse.com

Venus Infers comes from Orange County, but it is not an Orange County band. Our influences range from The Velvet Underground ("Venus In Furs" sound familiar?), The Stones, Beatles, and Kinks to modern groups like The Strokes, Kings of Leon, and Arctic Monkeys. All this while avoiding the sound of so many tired-late-night-pick-your-decade-to-tribute indie rock bands. Venus Infers plays Rock N Roll the way it was designed: passionate, expressive, and honest.

Music from both records has been heard on consistent rotation on LA's KROQ 106.7FM, San Diego's 94/9 FM, and London's XFM. The band has also had placements on MTV shows The City, The Hills, The Real World, FX's Damages, and various other programs around the world and independent movies. Venus Infers has headlined California venues The House of Blues, The Glasshouse, The Viper Room, The Troubadour, Detroit Bar, The Roxy, The Echo, and more. The band has toured through Texas with Peter Murphy, up the west coast with the B-52s, opened for Chris Cornell, opened for Blondie, and played in New York City.
