The Victory Lap formed in 2010, but the current lineup was set last year when producer Kevin Gates introduced previous clients of his to one another. “The four of us met, uprooted ourselves from our homes, and set out to make something original, positive, and catchy.” says singer Mark Anderson. Playing in the Columbia, Missouri, scene limited to metal and hardcore, the guys found they would have to fight tooth and nail to get their unique sound heard in the Midwest. “We all traded in paydays and diplomas so that our life stories were stories worth telling when all the dust settles,” Anderson says.
