Stay Up to date with VRATIM
Dominick Legotte's band Idle Minds just released a new song titled, "Beneath The Weather" and it's definitely worth a listen!
You can check out their premier on Metal Injection here.
Be sure to grab the single, recorded and produced by Jesse Avignone of AviStudios and mixed and mastered by Taylor Larson (Periphery, etc.) from their Bandcamp for FREE!
Katie Cole, Kortney Grinwis, and Jordyn Zubyk recently got together and filmed a drum cover of "Hey Baby" by No Doubt.
Together the trio have formed "The Drummer's Collective" which is "an organization to inspire women to do their thing and own their talent in this male dominated industry."
We think this is such an awesome concept and they're all amazing at what they do.
Check out the video below!
We're honored to announce that David Puckett of For Today has officially joined the Vratim Artist Family!
"Vratim have touched on something that few people in the drum community ever do. They have found a way to facilitate both comfort and control with their shoes, which most people can never find the balance of. People tend to sacrifice comfort for control, or the other way around, which always has a negative effect on your playing. Vratim have created an incredible shoe that fits so well to your fit, compliments your playing style, and gives you a ton of control!"
They'll be hitting the road a bunch over the next few months so definitely be sure to catch them!
We've got another awesome artist we're adding to our family; stoked to welcome Brandon Ricardo or A Wake In Providence!
"In drumming control is everything . Vratim brought the level of foot control to a whole new level . The feel, grip, and comfort these shoes bring to your feet are out of this world."
Be sure to catch them on "The Original Sin Tour" with In Dying Arms
We're stoked to announce our first artist from Poland Jakub "Zyjon" Śliwiński!
Jakub owns a music shop on top of playing for two bands: HURROCKAINE and Part Of The Beginning
"Every drummer needs special equipment to perform as best as we can. We always thinking about shells, sticks, heads, cymbals but sometimes, we forget about what we have on our feet. Vratim makes the best connection between foot-board and feet. Control, feel, comfort and very good looking shoes are everything what we need. When I first put them on I immediately fall in love and I was never that sure about my gear.”
We're kicking off St. Patrick's Day by announcing Jamie Eads - Drummer as joining the Vratim Artist Family!
"I've been playing drums for 25 years. I've tried every shoe imaginable to play in. The Vratim II is the ONLY shoe that can fulfill the need to feel my pedals accurately while providing the support needed to feel fresh after playing a marathon gig. My feet have never felt better after a long, hard night of drumming, thanks to these shoes."
Corey Myers Drums is joining the Vratim Artist Family!
"The Vratim drum shoe has benefited my footwork tremendously. It's light weight and grip on the bottom is unlike any other shoe on the market. I highly recommend this shoe for drummers."
He's got a really active Instagram with lots of drumming videos worth checking out
Tuesday, we caught up with Alex Rudinger in St. Petersburg to drop off a little care package.
To our surprise we found out that Matt Greiner (August Burns Red) and Blake Richardson (Between the Buried and Me) were also rocking our shoes!
We are beyond honored to have three of the best drummers out there all wearing our shoes..
If the tour stops near you, definitely make a point to go out - it is well worth it.
Kicking off this week by having Kristina Schiano join the Vratim Artist Family!
"I have been a drummer for a very long time and have never come across a shoe that effortlessly glides along my pedal, is super comfortable, and looks as badass as Vratim shoes do!”
Finishing up this week with one more endorsement announcement: Jordan Zubyk will be joining the Vratim Artist Family!
"Drums have always been the biggest part of my life and the gear I play and wear plays a huge factor in that. VRATIM shoes are by far the most comfortable and durable pair of shoes I've ever drummed in!"
Lots of things in the works with her right now so keep an eye out throughout the year (you can also find her hanging around some of our other drummers on the reg)
