The Vines have been a mercurial band since they arrived in 2002. Their talent took hold when the debut album 'Highly Evolved' launched them as one of rock music's new saviours. It was a height though that the volatile band was never going to maintain for long. At some point the tales took over the talent and became their namesake camouflage. Out of sight the band might have been, but not out of the studio. Today The Vines announce a new album 'Wicked Nature' being release worldwide. For the first time it's a double album, 22 brand new songs. On 'Wicked Nature' frontman Craig Nicholls makes his debut in the role of record producer. He co-produced disc one with regarded Australian tape loving analogue producer Paul McKercher (You Am I) and then he assumes full control over the production duties for the second disc. 'Wicked Nature' is the bands first independent release. The album will be released on a new label of the same name.
