Is that Freedom Rock? Turn it up!
Originally a 3 piece led by vocalist/guitarist Shane Herrell and looking for a spark in May 2009, Virgin was joined by guitarist Johnny Wokas (formerly of Sunday Night Blackout) to add a layer of rock depth to its sound. After a few successful local gigs and a quick trip down the coast to SF the band hit a roadblock when the rhythm section departed due to domesticated responsibilities. Enter Justin Cronk (formerly of Vendetta Red) and Greg Garcia (Fences). After a few weeks of rocking some of the original Virgin tunes the re-formed unit started writing some more songs to round out a soon-to-be-created full-length album. Heavily influenced by Black Sabbath, the Hellacopters and Aerosmith, the band hit the studio. The currently self-released album is a hard hitting, 70s/80s rock roller coaster that comes ever so close to capturing the explosive live show Virgin delivers on stage. Ladies and Gentlemen, Lay down your soul to the Gods Rock and Roll.
Rock and Roll 70s style. Imagine if Joe Perry got stoned with the Hellacopters.
