VAIRON has the sound of Linkin Park, The Used, and 30 Seconds to Mars thrown together into a giant stir-fry. Every element is good by itself, but when they come together as a whole, they create something greater. There's the combination of melody and hardcore, singing and screaming, and a hint of electronics that tie each song together. The great alternative rock sound that has been inspiring up and coming bands for years with some pop and R&B flavor added in.

Justin Rose was the dynamic front man for the touring rock band "Frequency 54" While out on tour he found himself writing music that just didn't fit the band's format. Following his heart, Justin decided to follow the music he was writing and formed "Surviving Justin". Unsure of how to classify the kind of music he was writing he decided to blend the two types of music that it sounded most like, alternative and country.

Until Solace was formed during the summer of 2011 in Fenton, MI. The music focuses on powerful, hard-hitting yet melodic riffs with a ton of energy behind them. They are currently booking shows throughout Michigan and are looking forward to meeting lots of new bands as well as develop new fans.
