The Vermin Suicides first formed in 2008 as a three-piece with Tony Vermin on bass, Villy Raze on drums and Anton Le Verme on guitar and vocals. The started to gig locally around Liverpool basement venues and established band nights. The line-up was soon joined by Dirty Robbo on lead guitar, Tony switched to drums just prior to recording their debut album ''Yeahman ... it's The Vermin Suicides' on Antipop Records in 2011, and (sexy) Alec James Joyce took over on bass.
This was followed by the 'Sick World EP' in 2012 with gigs around the UK including an appearance at Rebellion Punk Festival.
Alec left in early 2013 and was replaced by Pete Waster. Since then, the band has continued to write songs and perform shows including a tour of Europe in 2014.
In 2016 the band signed with Igloo Records and work commenced recording their second album 'In The Blood' which was completed by the end of the year. Shortly after, Tony Vermin left and was replaced by new drummer Aaron Sawyer. During this period 'Demons EP' was recorded. This was planned to prelude the release of the new album, but this was scuppered when illness in the group forced gig cancellations.
After a short hiatus, the band are now ready to embark on promoting 'In The Blood'.
