In January 2001 Kevin Stewart (304) and Ines Lehmann (316) founded V2A. In Spring 2002 was the first time V2A were performing live at Zeche Carl in Essen (G.I.P.) Germany and afterwards followed a show at the Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Leipzig Germany. Straight after they signed their recording contract with the label Trisol.
Their music is tough-minded hard EBM / Industrial / TBM. In Autumn 2002 their first album EBM was released worldwide and V2A started to play on many shows and stages all over Europe and through their fascinating energetic and exhaustless live shows the V2A fan base grew enormously. In 2005 live drummer Matthew Hawkes (654SMO) became a member of the band.
After six years the band switch to the new label Biohazzard Records based in Germany (part of the Danse Macabre Group) and in March 2009 released their second album - Mechanized Infantry – which accomplished several weeks in the top 10 albums of the German DAC / GEWC charts and DUC in the Netherlands. Their songs had finally conquered dance floors around the world!
