"Only Human" is the fifth studio album by U.K. melodic rock stalwarts Vega. The band self-produced the record, but teamed up with legendary Canadian musician and producer Harry Hess (of Harem Scarem) for the mixing and mastering to bring fans another gem of a release, which drops on May 11th via Frontiers Records.
The album's new single "Last Man Standing" can be heard streaming in the player above.
If you're very lucky, there may be occasions in your life when you find a band and you realize you’ve discovered something a bit special. We've all heard groups who release 'great' albums, but Vega
certainly makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and provide butterflies in the stomach excitement when all fans of modern melodic rock listen to the new record for the first time.
"We wear our love of 80's rock music on our sleeves, but we also have injected our love of modern rock music to it. We aren't trying to rehash anything: the sound we have achieved is 100% VEGA.
We didn't want to try and guess what people expect and get it wrong," says singer Nick Workman.
The twelve songs that comprise "Only Human" truly see VEGA take their songwriting and musicianship to the next level. The album track listing and artwork can be found here:
1 Let’s Have Fun Tonight

3 Last Man Standing
4 Come Back Again
5 All Over Now
6 Mess You Made
