Nico Vega is the first featured artist in CraveOnline's new Band of The Month feature, wherein we bring you weekly exclusive in-studio performances of our CraveOnstage sessions throughout the entire month, spotlighting some of the best artists in motion today. With a new EP Fury oh Fury, a new album set to arrive this summer and material for their next record already in the works, there's no shortage of musical treasure for longtime fans of the band to sink their teeth into – as well as a strong back catalogue for newcomers to mine as they fall deeper in love with a band we've been screaming about from the digital rooftops since 2008.

The first installment of Nico Vega's feature coverage included an exclusive interview with vocalist Aja Volkman, as well as an energized vocal-loop performance of the fan-favorite track "Back of My Hand". Next up from our CraveOnstage session is the track "Lightning," an uptempo rocker with clanging guitars and infectiously earnest melody:

Nico Vega have also announced a summer co-headlining tour with Crash Kings and new album, Lead To Light. Beginning July 11th in San Diego, the US trek will make stops in over 25 cities through mid August. The intimate run comes fresh off the band’s support slot on Imagine Dragons’ sold-out 50-city tour, giving Nico Vega fans a shot at up-close performances. Tickets can be purchased here.

Also available for pre-order this Friday is their new full-length album, Lead To Light. With a release date to be announced, the album will be available for pre-sale along with additional VIP bundle packages for the tour including handwritten lyrics, signed set lists, band designed artwork, concert experiences with the band and more.
