Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band

Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band exploded on to the Seattle music scene in the summer of 2008. By the following spring they had signed to the influential indie label Dead Oceans, and released their first album, grabbing national attention from Spin, NME, Paste, and a host of other major publications. The performance of their first album: a wild, unhinged, and capricious group of songs, helped earn them a reputation for putting on vastly entertaining performances. They soon embarked on tours alongside Cursive, Japandroids, Frog Eyes, and made appearances at several festivals across the US and Canada.
