Dave Curtis, Mickey Dollar and Mark Towne met in 2002 while studying at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. During that time they balanced college-life with rehearsals, performances, a few DIY regional tours and the release of their first album, Plan B. (recorded at The Blasting Room, 2005). Energy and aggression drove its creation and the record accurately captured Vices’ hectic lives and wild performances. In 2007 Vices I Admire relocated to Denver and parted ways with original bassist, Robert Marston. The band continued to write new material and develop as musicians while they searched for Rob’s replacement. The Politics of Apathy was recorded at Colorado Sound Studios in May/June of 2009. Writing well crafted songs that were honest and attentive to dynamics became unspoken goals during the project. JP Manza (engineer) and Ian Pinder (producer) brought a sense of order, direction and perspective to the sessions to capture the varied moods and styles of the album. Eight months and 21 candidates later, Vices I Admire welcomed Daniel Battenhouse onto the team. The addition of Battenhouse revitalized the group and together they worked around the clock to produce the material that would engender their new album, The Politics of Apathy. The Politics of Apathy was recorded at Colorado Sound Studios in May/June of 2009. JP Manza (engineer) and Ian Pinder (producer) provided the direction and perspective necessary to capture the varied moods and styles of each song. From the dance-pop inspired, “Sweetest Girl”, to the anthemic head-banger, “Kiss Kiss”, The Politics of Apathy showcases the stylistic and musical maturation (and diverse talent) of Vices I Admire. With a release date slated for January of 2010, The Politics of Apathy is a long overdue snapshot of the music and lives of Vices I Admire. Keep your eyes on this spot for updates, news and more.
