The electronic project VNV ("Victory Not Vengeance") Nation was conceived in London in 1990 by Ronan Harris, debuting in May of that year with the 12-inch "Body Pulse." "Strength of Youth" followed a few months later, and at the end of the year Harris relocated to Toronto, where VNV Nation opened for Nitzer Ebb on their Canadian tour. After moving back to Europe, Harris released only a handful of compilation tracks in the years to follow before signing with the German label Discordia in 1995 to issue the full-length Advance and Follow. Three years later, VNV Nation resurfaced on another German label, Off-Beat, an alliance which generated the LP Praise the Fallen as well as the EP Solitary. Empires, which was issued with another European distributor Dependent, and on Metropolis in the U.S., followed in the spring of 2000. Singles such as "Standing" and "Dark Angel" were club mainstays, boasting Ronan Harris' love for pulsating club rhythms and his developing seascapes of dark ambient waves. Mix projects Genesis.1 and Genesis.2 followed that format in 2001, giving a sneak preview to VNV Nation's Futureperfect. - Jason Ankeny

VNV Nation: Irish/English duo VNV Nation continue to leap from strength to strength, emerging as a powerhouse in the alternative electronic rock and industrial scenes. Their unique blend of contemporary electronic styles, industrial, rock and dance elements, thematic lyrics and inspiring, emotive vocals ranges from hard-hitting electronic beats to haunting ballads and symphonic orchestrations. VNV Nation have earned incredible acclaim for their energetic live shows and gained a fanatical worldwide following.

Following on from the highly successful limited Boxset ”Reformation 01”, Irish/English duo VNV Nation are set to release their next full-length album “Of Faith, Power and Glory” on June 19th in Europe and June 23rd in North America. The new album sees the band reach a whole new level musically. The album is more soulful and raw than ever before and shows VNV Nation moving into new musical territories with their own distinctive sound. Despite all of their albums having received acclaim, “Of Faith, Power and Glory” is already being described by journalists as one of the best alternative-music albums of the last few years, not to mention being VNV Nation's finest work since their eclectic cult release "Empires" (1999). This is easily the band’s strongest and most profoundly evocative release yet that takes a big leap beyond what the band had achieved on previous albums.
