The new Vain CD, “On the Line”, will initially be available exclusively at the band’s live performances during their upcoming European tour. 1000 special edition copies have been pressed and will be available for purchase along with t-shirts and a tour book.

San Francisco, CA – Davy and the Band have completed the finishing touches on their new CD, “On the Line”. The new CD features ten new scorching tracks produced and recorded by Davy and the Band. “This new CD encompasses all of the elements that fans have grown to expect from Vain’s music: Pure, raw energy, emotion and attitude,” says Jamie Scott.

Also of note: The new CD will be produced entirely in Davy’s recording studio, The Groove Room. The Groove Room features one of the most highly desired vintage microphone, compressor and outboard gear collections around. As Davy puts it, “I’ve always had a thing for the vibe and sound of classic recordings of the 60’s and 70’s.” Jamie’s take on recording at The Groove Room, “I think it’s just been a natural progression of Davy’s to aquire the vintage equipment that has produced some of the best sounding recordings of all time and at the same time create an environment that allows him capture his music on his terms. The Groove Room is an extension of that.”

A teaser track is available for listening at! Davy and the band would like to thank their fans for all their support! “Thanks for all the mail/email and pictures, keep ’em comin’!”
