ONLY HUMAN is the fifth studio album from UK melodic rock stalwarts Vega. The band produced the album and also teamed up with the legendary
Canadian musician and producer, Harry Hess of Harem Scarem on mixing and mastering to bring their fans another gem of a melodic rock record!
If you're very lucky, there may be occasions in your life when you find a band and you realize you've discovered something a bit special. Sure we've all
heard ›great‹ bands who release ›great‹ albums, but VEGA is indeed a band that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and give you that
butterflies in your stomach excitement as you listen to the songs on an album for the first time!
»We wear our love of 80's rock music on our sleeve, but we also have injected our love of modern rock music to it. We aren't trying to rehash anything: the
sound we have achieved is 100% VEGA. We didn't want to try and guess what people expect and get it wrong,« says singer Nick Workman.
Following the release of their fourth studio album, ›Who We Are‹ in 2016, Vega remained busy promoting that album before jumping right back into the
studio to record the follow-up, ONLY HUMAN. Promoting their last studio album, VEGA toured with Magnum, Dan Reed Network did a headline gig at the
O2 Academy 2, appeared at the Steelhouse Festival, headlined Melodic Rock Night in Padova, IT, and hit Spain for a handful of dates. Additionally, they
appeared at Derby At The Spot, Planet Rock’s Winter’s End Festival, Hard Rock Heaven AOR 5, Nordic Noise, Amplified Festival, and Rockingham
»Only Human« truly sees the band taking their song writing and performance to the next level. Be sure to catch the guys on tour!
»Im Sound sind Vega allerdings um
Nuancen moderner geworden. Das zeigt
sich im Gitarrenklang, aber auch in den
Bombast-Arrangements: Das Feeling der
Achtziger trifft auf die technischen Möglichkeiten
der 2000er.« (Good Times, August / September 2018)
