Fresh off releasing their latest EP, Anatomy, on October 26th, Vanity Theft is already busy gearing up for 2011. On top of releasing their upcoming album Get What You Came For digitally on February 1st (with the physical release following on March 1st), the band is also set to hit the road on an extensive North American tour with Hunter Valentine in February/March 2011!
To cap off the year, Vanity Theft premiered their new video for the Houses’ Haunted Tape remix of “Anatomy” today via NickyDigital.com! The band recruited Houses, a Lefse Records artist, to remix the track, who gave it a dark, ambient spin. The video is visually stunning, providing the perfect complement to Houses’ rework of the studio track.
Reminiscent of some of the best old school post riot-grrl indie sounds such as The Runaways, L7, Sleater Kinney, Vanity Theft tears it up live, leaving audiences as sweat-drenched as the band when it’s all over. After attracting the attention of former Disney Channel star Lalaine, who joined the band permanently earlier this year, the band set to work on the Anatomy EP, which dropped in October as a precursor to the upcoming full-length.
Get What You Came For finds the band at their very best: catchy, edgy, and dancey as hell. The album kicks off with the charging track “Trainwreck,” and doesn’t let you go until the final notes of “Missing Teeth” slowly fade out.
