While you may not recognize Set The Charge immediately by band name, you definitely have seen the talent of frontman Anthony Vincent on his Youtube and Facebook profiles. Creator and star of the ‘Ten Second Songs’ youtube channel, Vincent has over 2.4 million subscribers for his talent as a musician to imitate other styles of music perfectly right down to the vocals. That being said, Vincent is an extremely talented musician in a style of his own– which is where Set The Charge comes in. The band released their first EP in 2015 and since has only been growing in popularity and acclaim in these past two years. Some of the band’s recent appearances include Trash Bar, Fat Baby, The Bitter End, Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre, The Bowery Electric, Webster Hall, and more in the NYC area. In June 2015, Set The Charge was the subject of AXS TV’s “Breaking Band” series, where they were paired up with Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer Robin Zander of Cheap Trick.
Fast forward to 2017– Set The Charge has now recently released a full length album entitled Sky Goes On, and the single off of the album “Everything But Me” is leading the charge on getting this album to the ears of the masses. The single is like a time capsule back to the 90’s– hearing influences from a wide array of artists that enhance the track– making it a breath of fresh air to the modern rock scene.
The rest of Sky Goes On follows suit– providing a fresh rock sound that allows it to distinguish itself from other releases. Much like Vincent’s ‘Ten Second Songs’ videos, Sky Goes On takes you on a journey where no song is exactly the same– pushing the boundaries of the band’s style as each track explores a different part of the band. With Tom Dicarlucci on lead guitar, Derek Ortiz on bass guitar, and Frank Valbiro on the drums, the entire band shows an extreme passion that shines in their immense talent. If you like rock, if you like metal, if you like talent; check out Sky Goes On by Set The Charge.
