The Vulz formed during ‘another’ studio jam session between Barry John Charman (Guitar, Vocals, Songwriter) and Clayton Cook (Drummer, General Idiot) sometime in 2010.
Barry and Clayton had played together for the best part of seven years in the four piece grunge band, the Free State Prophets which saw them enjoy several recordings, play many gigs including touring South Africa, gain label interest and a strong following on the London circuit.
The studio jam sessions came about after the break up of the Prophets as the two friends sought to keep their musical interests going and soon they started plotting a new project.
After meeting up with Fil Ross, a lead guitarist and studio engineer, Fil joined the band as bassist, playing mega riffs inspired by his passion for heavy rock and strong lead guitar abilities.
The tracks gained momentum and the band started recording their debut album, EVO.
Upon completion of the album late in 2012, Fil decided to leave the band to pursue his own musical interest as a singer/songwriter, leaving behind a strong impression as his energy was loved and his bass work mesmerizing.
2013 saw the band re-invent itself as a four piece with the addition of Gary Pearce (Innocent Bystanders) on Lead Guitar and Nick Medlin on Bass.
Just as the band began progressing, they were back at square one with the announcement that Clayton was leaving due to work commitments.
Cue Paul Cassar in the hot seat.
The Vulz began playing more live gigs and impressed as a solid act with strong live performances.
Mid 2014 saw the return of Clayton into the drummers chair and early 2015 brought the arrival of David Zerafa on bass, replacing the departing Nick Medlin.
The band started working on a second album and continued to perform on the London circuit, drawing great reviews from their performances.
December 2016 will see the release of the bands second album, Love Struck Bomb Delay which was recorded at the Grand Chapel Studios in Tebworth, Bedfordshire.
