2/9/13 we’re in Daytona for for Mainstreet Live Music & Art Fest on Stage 13 at 10pm!
2012 came and went in a flash. We recorded, we toured, we kicked some ass! Hopefully some of you got to see us say goodbye to 2012 at our New Years Eve Show with Less Than Jake.
For 2013 we’re gearing up for another action-packed, fun-filled year and we promise to keep you posted on the details as they develop.
For the first part of the year we plan to keep the schedule light so we can write and record our 4th studio album. If all goes well we will have a shiny new album out for summer!
Whenever we start writing new material we have a habit of laying low for a while. This time we wanted to give our fans a little something to tide them over before we slipped away to start working on new songs. If you haven’t seen it already, head over to the vocska.com store and check our new EP “Decades”:.
The new release features a song from each era in rock history. Buddy Holly to Weezer - 50’s pop to 90s grunge and beyond.
While we were working on songs for the EP another little unexpected surprise came out of it, quite by accident. We listened to hundreds of records and learned dozens of songs. Finally we narrowed it down to the 5 songs that would end up on the EP. But, when we were all finished, there was one more song that we had so much fun re-working that we just couldn’t let it go. So, while it doesn’t really fit the EP, we didn’t want to see it lost in the VOC vaults forever. That little gem is “What Makes You Beautiful” made famous by a group of young men called One Direction but made cool by us.
riddled— victims of circumstance.

About Victims of Circumstance
Victims of Circumstance, a punk-ska band known for blending pop-hooks with a unique style of ska, have built a dedicated following while playing around their home state of Florida before setting out on a tour that ended with an invitation to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones tenth Hometown Throwdown in Boston, MA in 2007. Victims of Circumstance has since performed with numerous national acts including Voodoo Glow Skulls, Big D & the Kids Table, The Pietasters, Whole Wheat Bread, Everybody Out!, The Toasters and others.
This fall the boys finished up a six song EP of cover tunes that pulled one song from each decade from the 50’s through the 90’s. Following the release, VOC will be in the studio starting work on their fourth studio album to be released in the Summer/Fall of 2013.

Call it a Trick or a Treat, but Victims Of Circumstance is releasing a cover of the UK boy band One Direction’s Hit “What Makes You Beautiful" today on Halloween.
While we were working on our upcoming EP of cover songs “Decades” we learned a lot of new tunes. The idea was to represent the evolution of rock ‘n’ roll from the 50s to the 90s (which was the last time any of us paid attention to pop music). We ended up learning a lot of songs and one of them was One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”
We knew it really didn’t have a place on the EP but we had so much fun re-working it and a lot of fun playing it that we just can’t bring ourselves to let it go. So call it a teaser; a Halloween trick (or treat), or just an early Christmas present but here it is: A very punk-ska “What Makes You Beautiful.”
