Biography

The band walks in the venue, looks around, and eyes the stage. They know exactly what they’re going to get from the crowd once the set is finished. Pure amazement. And you know why viewing the show from the ground looking up, you see five kids get on the stage and wonder, “why are they headlining?” They play a show that is not only satisfying to the ear, but also to the eye, and your left standing saying, “oh, that’s why.” The band started early September 2005. With Collin on Guitar and Phill on Drums, they decided to lay down the blueprints of what eventually became “Victim Number Four.” After placing an add on the local website, Azpunk.com, Phill found Steve as a vocalist and things instantly clicked. After a few shows with a temporary bassist, the band felt something was missing. Steve later contacted long time friend Travis to join the band as a second vocalist, further strengthening their capabilities as a band. With one more member needed to play bass, the band asked schoolmate Ian to fill that role. They played their first show on October 23rd of 2005 and haven’t stopped since. The things they have accomplished in so little time are amazing. Since the birth of the band they headlined and won a preliminary “Battle of The Bands” at the Big Fish Pub through Sugarlight Productions. From there, they played other local clubs in Arizona like The Sets, Neckbeards, and the Clubhouse, where they headlined and won the “Battle of The Bands” finals. When the band isn’t playing their own shows, you’ll find them at the local venues supporting local bands. “Its where we get our inspiration,” Says singer Steve, “because this is who we do it for, the people like us, who love and appreciate music as much as we do.” The sound of the band is something, original. “The kind of tunes I’ll be humming all day!” (Mike of Batgrotto Productions.) It’s a mixture of Collins metal riffs, Phill and Ian’s powerful rhythm section, along with Steve’s brutal high and Travis’ intense low yells, switched up by melodic chorus’, and summed together with some of the most haunting breakdowns you’ve ever heard. A “Victim Number Four” show is something you never want to miss. They put on performances leaving you wanting more, and they do it with only one thing driving them, knowing they are giving a gift that not only they themselves can appreciate, but something that other people will identify with too, while having fun in the process. “Everyone needs something to help them escape, and we want to be that doorway. Not all of us have way to get out, that’s why some of us are just born victims.”
