Vended Premiere “Overall” Music Video

Vended, the band featuring Griffin Taylor and Simon Crahan, the sons of Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan, have premiered a new video for their new song “Overall.” Griffin commented:

“‘Overall‘ a song about getting trapped in your own head and having your thoughts self-sabotage you. And how sometimes YOU are the only person who can help yourself get out of that headspace. ‘I salt the wound myself’ has a double meaning; you either feel the pain from bad thoughts, or you lean into it and embrace them.”

Vended’s Simon Crahan On Touring With Slipknot: “If You Were In Our Position, You Would Take The Tour, So Shut The Fuck Up”

During an interview with Kerrang!, Vended’s Griffin Taylor and Simon Crahan discussed the inevitable comparisons between them and their fathers, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan. When asked about Vended’s decision to hit the road with Slipknot, Simon responded by saying anyone in their position “would take the tour.”

Simon said the following about the initial buzz surrounding Vended when they launched the project:

“You see a lot of bands who have been practicing for a week, they’ve got two songs, they have a name but it sucks, then they play a show in front of three people. We isolated ourselves in my basement, writing and writing and writing and writing and not showing anyone our music or anything we were doing. Then two years later – boom – ‘Asylum‘ was released, we had 8,000 followers right off the bat, already verified on Instagram and people loved it more.”

He also commented on their connection with Slipknot:

“Yeah, we got more help than other bands do and I’m honest about that. I’m not going to say we didn’t because that’s not fair to who our fathers are. They’ve helped us, but they have never, ever, ever, written our music, never showed us how to play, never showed us how to perform onstage, they’ve never done any of that. When people say, ‘Oh, Griffin’s dad’s probably showing him how to scream how he does,’ Griff is learning on his fucking own.”

Griffin continued:

“I started learning how to scream in middle school and my dad was out in Vegas. I understand when people say, ‘Oh, they got all of their musical talent from their fathers.’ I understand where people come from with that, because of genes or just the way a voice is built or someone’s reflexes are built, but we didn’t get our parents’ musical talent. We found that on our own.”

Simon added:

“My dad never showed me how to play the drums. Maybe he showed me little things, but I learned that shit by myself – we all learned this shit by ourselves. To think that some people actually think our dads help us like that, I can see what they’re talking about, but we’re a bunch of fucking talented 18, 19, 20-year-olds that are trying to show the world that anyone can fucking do it. People can just fuck right off, half the time.”

He then went on to discuss opening for Slipknot:

“I think touring with Slipknot is perfect because Griffin and I get to see our dads – that’s amazing. We never get to see our fucking dads! It’s good for us to be around the people who really showed us what music was really about. Yeah, people are pissed off, but if you were in our position, you would take the tour, so shut the fuck up.”
