About Long Beach Vagrant:
Vagrant was formed in the early 90’s during the heyday of the metal scene in LA/OC by founding members MIKE PAIN (Guitarist) and Tim Woolpert (Former Singer) both hailing from Long Beach Ca.
Vagrant’s music from the 90’s “through the eyes” and “before the Blood” would be described as horror metal, taking influences from their favorite horror slasher movies from the 80’s and incorporating it into their songs and lyrics.
Through many obstacles Vagrant’s Mike Pain kept the band progressing. With a new line up, the music has evolved to a new level of hard hitting metal that will captivate the audiences interest with a diverse style and presence to keep them coming back for more. In a pool of bands that all sound the same Vagrant strives to have a fresh sound and provide a unique brand of metal.
Vagrant is currently in the studio recording a new album called “Death Be Thy Name” with a current line up Including Randy Blount: lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Robert Gresham: bass guitar, and John Aragonez: drums. Leaving Mike Pain as the only original member.
Over the years Vagrant has opened for bands such as:
