Vaux was a six-piece alternative rock band from Denver, Colorado.
Vaux was formed in 1997 in Denver, Colorado, under the original name Eiffel. They released a 7" single themselves, To Write A Symphony, in 1998. Indie label Undecided Records signed the band after they had toured the East Coast extensively for two years, and the band's debut album Audiblenarcotic was released in 2000. The album was a minor success on college radio, and the band earned a spot on the 2001 Warped Tour. In July 2002, for legal reasons, the band had to change its name, deciding on Vaux.
In 2002, Vaux moved to Orange County independent label Volcom Entertainment and released the EP On Life; Living, and the following year, second full-length There Must be Some Way to Stop Them. The album received widespread critical acclaim, prompting Alternative Press magazine to include Vaux in their 100 Bands to Watch feature. During this time, the band embarked upon successful tours supporting Thrice, My Chemical Romance, Coheed and Cambria and The Used. They were also featured on the entire 2003 Warped Tour.
In January 2004 Vaux signed to major label Atlantic Records. Shortly after, the band released a 5-song EP, Plague Music, on Equal Vision Records. The band's major label debut, Beyond Virtue, Beyond Vice was due for release on November 8th, 2005. However, Vaux severed ties with Atlantic. The band has since released the album themselves which was available to purchase on their last headlining tour and is available on their webstore in limited quantities.
On Tuesday, 22 August 2006, the song Are You With Me was released as the Single of the Week in the iTunes Music Store. Their final show was July 28th, 2007 at the Bluebird Theater in Denver, CO.
- Beyond Virtue, Beyond Vice was released conjunctively through Outlook Music and the band's own Vx Records label on August 1st, 2006.
- On July 28th, 2007 the band played their last show together in Denver, Colorado at the Bluebird Theater. Ryder rejoined them for the last concert which also featured the bands Casket Salesman, The Epilogues and Mocassin. They have plans to release a 5 song EP in the near future, they said that the album is around 30 minutes long.
