VINCI will join the legendary Aslan when they celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of their hit album ‘Feel No Shame’ on Friday 13th July.
The Dublin band recently unveiled the video for their brand new single “We Are Ghosts”. “We Are Ghosts” describes the quiet struggle of anxiety and depression and how that battle can impact on a relationship. “‘We Are Ghosts’ is as much about a relationship breaking down as it is about them leaving a part of them in the past and being re-born. Renaissance means rebirth and they feel as though this is their renaissance.
VINCI derives from the Latin “vincere” meaning: to defeat, to beat, and to overcome. No name has ever seemed so fitting for a band.
Each member of the group has overcome adversity and unwittingly saved each other from individual struggles, which they would only discover later.
From jobs lost to the recession, to being cut out of a record deal by childhood friends, to challenges with depression and anxiety; just a couple of years ago, each member of VINCI found themselves turning their back on music and giving up on the dream of following in the footsteps of great Irish bands that have come before them.
Today, VINCI have two critically-acclaimed singles with the same Irish producer behind Kodaline and The Script, the first ever music video at Dublin’s City Hall where U2 once tried to film, an invitation from, and performance for, President Michael D. Higgins at Aras An Uachtarain, and the ears of the industry perked to their anthemic, stadium-ready sound, rising out of shared struggle, grounded in working-class drive and embodied with their motivation and fearlessness.
With previous sold out headline shows at The Grand Social and Whelan’s, Vinci recently headlined The Workman’s Club to another sold out crowd.
