This week's interview on Dieselpunks.org is with Ronan Harris, the visionary behind VNV Nation.
VNV Nation is an electronic music band comprised of Ronan Harris and Mark Jackson that combines elements of industrial music, trance, synthpop and EBM with the elements and ideals of Futurism and the Futurist aesthetic. Always evolving, VNV (Victory, not Vengeance) Nation first hit the public in 1995 and have since then released seven full length albums, toured the world several times over, and have stepped ahead to become one of the premier bands in the electronic music.
Their upcoming album, Of Faith, Power and Glory, is available today (June 19, 2009) in Europe and will be released on June 23rd across the pond in America. I had a chance to talk with Ronan and introduce him to the website.
