NWOBHM veterans VARDIS release a new digital single and lyric video for the song Out Of The Way (live) taken from their upcoming live album 100M.P.H.@100CLUB.
In the 1970s Vardis‘ relentless touring of the working mens clubs of Northern England took them to support slots with Hawkwind, Slade, Motörhead and Saxon, emerging with a reputation for a unique heavy rock attack and high energy technical brilliance. On November 1st 1980 Vardis‘ live debut LP 100 M.P.H. entered UK Album Charts at #52 and instantly became a foundational record of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. The power trio‘s fusion of fast punk rhythms, relentless heavy riffs and blistering blues-rock solos echoes through Metallica‘s 1983 Kill ’Em All and Megadeth‘s 1985 Killing Is My Business … and Business Is Good!, and became an old school Heavy Metal classic.
Vardis will be joining the mighty line-up at HRH Spring Break in March 2022 at Camp HRH in Great Yarmouth, covering an array of genres from NWOBM and Stoner to NWOCR!
Four studio albums, three compilations and seven singles later, SPV/Steamhammer present to you the Vardis live experience on record for the first time since 1980 100 M.P.H.@100 Club. A double live album recorded on March 13th, 2020 the 40th anniversary of 100 M.P.H., this blistering two-hour set includes every track from an album that led the way for Thrash, performed up close and personal by Steve Zodiac (Guitar, Vocals), Joe Clancy (Drums) and Roly Bailey (Bass) in London‘s legendary 100 Club.
