conscious rock and punk group. The band is comprised of Ian Tomele (Vox, Bass Guitar) Andy Bobby Petty (Drums, Backing Vox).
Voice Of Addiction takes on the attitude that the punk rock revolution instilled in us, but infuses it with genre-mashing breakdowns. Sometimes described as a "unique refreshing slant to the rock world." Voice Of Addiction's members put their distinct personalities and experiences into the instruments they play and the music they write. V.O.A.'s music has an immense presence that builds tension and releases it at the most opportune times.
