Vigilants





Vigilants


Hailing from Brantford, Ontario, Canada, Vigilants were a four piece made up of Dave Yate (Bass Guitar); Mark Martorano (Guitar, Backing Vocals); Mike Defelice (Vocals, Guitar) and Pete Wright (Drums, Backing Vocals). They released just one EP, 1985’s “Run For Cover,” through Heavy Metal America. Six tracks long, and with a running time just over 20 minutes, this should have been a solid introduction to a band that would release many more albums: taking a listen to this EP can instantly prove their songwriting and performance ability to any listener. However, it was unfortunately not to be, and for reasons that aren’t entirely clear, the band never released any more music. The only evidence of any of the members having played any other music is an appearance by a Pete Wright on the 1983 Robin George album “History,” where said Pete Wright is credited with playing bass: Phil Lynott also guest stars on this album.
