Vexed To Release Debut Album In May

The UK’s most exciting new talent, fearless alt-metal upstarts Vexed, instantly turned heads and took names with the release of two recent standalone singles – including the fearsome "Elite" featuring Thy Art Is Murder’s CJ McMahon – creating a palpable underground buzz and giving fans a hefty sample of what to expect in the future.
