Founded is 2002, Vertigo Venus has gone through many changes. Over the past 10 years, they have gone from two members, to five, four, three, and five again, changing genre with each line up. They have opened for an expansive, and completely unrelated, number of major acts. Artists such as Chemlab, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Mindless Self Indulgence, Voltaire, The Birthday Massacre, Seraphim Shock, Captured by Robots, The Red Elvises, Blue Oyster Cult, War, Tiffany, and even Taylor Dayne. They are endorsed by four national music accessory and equipment companies, Digitech, Dava Picks, Dimarzio, and Gig-FX.
Their first record Sing Pretty, was release on EPL Records in 2004. It was recorded by the two founding members, brothers Chris and Jeff Cannon, and was an odd mix of electronica and metal. They then added two band members, and released Run for Your Lives on DSBP Records in 2007. It was, for the most part, industrial music with some punk-ish comedy songs. After losing one member and gaining two, they recorded Success Or Suicide as a five piece in 2010. It was a punk/electronica record with lots of pop influence, featuring a cover of Cyndi Lauper's 1984 hit She-Bop. One member was fired, another quit, then Vertigo Venus added a drum machine (named Christine) and released Broken Record in 2012. A purely punk album of songs about empty wallets, social unrest, and undying love.
The band now is five members, Chris Cannon, Jeff Cannon, Jessica Crockett, Erik Teixeira, and Christine Constantine. Chris playing guitar, Jeff singing, Jessica playing keyboard, Erik playing bass, and Christine on drums. They are writing and recording their fifth album, to simply be called Five. This album is to feature, what Vertigo Venus is calling their "permanent sound and final line-up". A Goth industrial album with influences from Type O Negative, Sisters of Mercy, as well as more "melodramatic music" such as Crux Shadows, and Nightwish. Slated to be released in early 2013, Vertigo Venus plans to tour the album nationally shortly thereafter.
