Vimic Posts “She Sees Everything” Music Video

Joey Jordison and his new band Vimic – Kalen Chase [Vocals], Jed Simon [Guitar/Vocals], Kyle Konkiel [Bass/Vocals] and Matt Tarach [Keyboards] – just debuted “She Sees Everything.”

The latest track to be released off Vimic’s forthcoming debut LP “Open Your Omen” new track “She Sees Everything” is streaming now accompanied by an official music video. Check it out below.

Earlier this month, Jordison spoke with Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal host José Mangin about forming Vimic and the significance of the band’s forthcoming album. “I decided that I really wanted to start fresh. I did not want to keep rehashing some old ideas, if I’m going to keep going I really want to break loose, wipe the slate clean and start fresh,” Jordison stated. “We went into the studio with (producer) Kato Khandwala and started hashing it out… kind of old school. We went in and said, ‘let’s just go back to being in the studio, jamming as a band, getting together with our instruments… and just creating from the ground up. That was one of the coolest things about creating this record.’”

Recorded at Sound Farm Studios in Jamaica, Iowa, “Open Your Omen” was produced, mixed and mastered by Kato Khandwala, whose production and engineering credits include My Chemical Romance, Blondie, Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, The Pretty Reckless and more.

To facilitate festival attendees’ movement between Metropolitan Park and EverBank Field, Gator Bowl Blvd. will be closed at the boundary of Lot TT from 6:00 PM Friday, April 24 until 2:00 AM Monday, April 27.

The new scenario will expand the festival’s capacity 25%, from 40,000 to 50,000, over the two-day event. The lineup for the fifth annual Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville, held April 25 & 26 at Jacksonville, Florida’s scenic Metropolitan Park along the St. Johns River, includes Slipknot, Korn, Godsmack, Marilyn Manson, Slayer, Ministry, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless, Of Mice & Men, and many more.

Says Danny Wimmer Presents CEO Danny Hayes, “This year’s Rockville will be the largest yet, with a 25% increase in sales from last year’s record attendance. We are so appreciative of Mayor Brown’s support and leadership in expanding this festival into EverBank Field. I believe this is the first step in unlocking Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville’s full potential.”

“Jacksonville is looking forward to another great Welcome To Rockville,” said Mayor Brown. “By expanding its footprint in Downtown Jacksonville, fans will have an even bigger and better experience. Rockville brings thousands Downtown every year and helps solidify our reputation as a premier destination for top-quality entertainment events.”
