Biography

Formed in Washington, D.C., the musical entity known as VYRUS was officially born at the Spiral Club in Greenwich Village, NYC on the first day of Spring in 1999. A standard 4-man rock line up at the time, the band head west to Los Angeles just a few months later. That's where VYRUS founders, singer/songwriter/guitarist Bryan Foley and Drummer Donny Hinegardner made history with their debut at the famous Whiskey A-GO-GO and Roxy both the same night. Little did the unit know the musical ride they were about to experience.

After performing at every major club in the L.A. music scene over the next 4 years, Foley headed up indie label Braintrust Records while Donny Drums perfected various futuristic sonic techniques on drums. All the while, they continued writing and recording new material for their debut release.

A heavy rock/experimental sonic hybrid, VYRUS fuses classic songwriting with futuristic soundscapes and inescapable hooks! They have garnered national attention on the 2003 Lollapalooza Tour summer sampler, a slot on the "Vengeance" film soundtrack, and national FM radio airplay in 25 cities.

The VYRUS self-titled debut LP was released Halloween night 2006 by Braintrust Records and is now available at CDBaby.com and Apple iTunes. DIO lead guitarist Craig Goldy assisted on 3 tracks while PORNO FOR PYROS guitarist Peter DiStefano has been added as an executive producer. VYRUS has also offered a song, "Forever 21", to the non-profit www.21forever.org in tribute to slain Washington Redskins All-Pro Free Safety Sean Taylor.
