Saving Vice, the Metalcore Independent band from New England, had one hell of a 2019 with appearances on the Billboard charts along with performances at Warped Tour, iMatter Festival, and much more. Since they have started in 2016, Saving Vice has been creeping up to new heights in the Metalcore scene with their intense sound and heavy passionate performances.
Seeing them live and hearing their music, it is no surprise on why they have been taking over one city, venue and festival at a time!

Tyler Small, Saving Vice
HeadRush TV: It is no secret that Saving Vice killed it in 2019 with things such as Billboard charts, Warped Tour, iMatter Festival, and more. With those accolades and festivals in the books now, what more will you strive for in 2020?
Tyler Small: It's honestly hard to say because we never expect these things that keep happening for us, we just learn from our previous successes and mistakes. There are definitely some festivals and bands we have in our sights for shows, we really want to get on the road more. The biggest thing for us is making sure our album reaches as many people as possible, our music usually does the work for us anytime people hear it.
HeadRush TV: So, speaking of 2020, Saving Vice is releasing a new album in February! Could you tell us what this creative process was like for this album and what could we really expect with this new music?
Tyler Small: We all have our own systems, I can only speak for myself, but I just write whenever I have an idea or inspiration, so it's never forced. Sometimes it'll be a melody, or a one liner, maybe even a title, then later when I get pre pro instrumentals sent to me I'll kinds of piece it together with the music. I can say for certain not a single song sounds the same, they may all sound like us but we touched so many genres and subgenres on this album. There's a song for everyone.
HeadRush TV: On the topic of new music, you guys just released a new song and music video for “Hallow Bastion”. What message are you trying to get across with this new song and with the killer music video that followed?
Tyler Small: The song is pretty much about coping with the depression nostalgia can bring as well as the dread of mortality. If there is one solid message it's that your time is limited and you can waste it dwelling on what could be or could have been, or you can use it wisely before it's too late.
HeadRush TV: The music video for “Hollow Bastion” honestly goes so hard! What was the filming process like for this song and could we expect any more music videos for this upcoming album?
Tyler Small: So, we basically had this one big white room in a studio, and we all took turns shooting our scenes. The coolest parts for me were having Robbie's grandfather acting as his future self and when I was spitting up blood and teeth. It just made me feel like I was shooting a Marilyn Manson video or something. There will 100% be more videos as well, we really believe in every song and want each one to be brought to life if possible.
HeadRush TV: Lastly, so I would love to give you guys the full platform here. Besides the album in February, what could your fans and followers be expecting in the new year 2020?
Tyler Small: We try not to make empty promises, but we will be coming to a lot of places we've never been and we're really excited show a larger scope of the music scene what we have to offer.
