Since their formation in 2011, the five-piece post-hardcore band, Villes has toured extensively across South East Asia, Japan & Australia performing alongside with local and regional groups, slowly building up a dedicated fan base. The2011 Invasion Tour in Singapore was their first official appearance where they played alongside local bands under the PSD artiste roster – A Vacant Affair, Avalanche and regional bands – I, Revival (Malaysia) and Rocket Rockers (Indonesia).
In 2013 the group made their way across the Causeway to Malaysia with the independently organized “HOME TOUR 2013” supported by Malaysian clothing line Elstees and alongside Malaysian Rock veterans Tres Empre, The Padangs and I, Revival. The group found themselves playing across 7 dates, in 7 cities, over 7 weekend. Years of successful shows and tours followed.
Now, the guys chat to Asian Pop Radio's Jay John to share a little about where it all got started, some of their highlights along the way and there fond memories of performing in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and.. wait for it.. Mildura! The boys speak about the support they receive from fellow Singaporeans and discuss the importance of other local groups working with each other and not against each other to promote their work to international audiences rather than competing with one another.
