about

In 2003, VPN holed up in Tony Lockwood's Williamsburg home studio while the house was under construction and recorded on 16 track analog, pushing faders old school. "How Dark Can You Get?" is the band's most raw and live sounding album to date. VPN took a hiatus from playing shows for almost a decade, so the album was never released. Here it is, in all it's noisy, experimental glory!
