Silvia Pereida interviews Brandon Blaine of Plague Vendor at the Vans Warped Tour in Pomona.

Plague Vendor’s gritty brand of rock was birthed by four friends with a predilection for dark tones and instinctual playing in their hometown of Whittier, California. The name was inspired by a Mexican folk tale that members Brandon Blaine (vocals), Michael Perez (bass) Luke Perine (drums), Jay Rogers (guitar) had read, with the first written songs recalling narrative elements of the story. Early shows were raucous and treacherous, making it clear that Plague Vendor was peddling something formidable.

Debut album “Free To Eat” was released this year on April 15. Visit their webpage to hear the first track and watch the video for “Black Sap Scriptures.”
