Formerly known as Simplfy, the Alternative-Rock quartet Vayden's rise out of the mire of obscurity began when they performed in and around their native Phoenix, Arizona USA, as opening act for such groups as Alien Ant Farm, Slightly Stoopid, King's X and Matchbox 20. The band's first line-up included lead singer Curtis Casey, guitarist Rob Robbins, bass player Bill Delrieu and drummer Bruce Weitz.
After a successful 2006 that saw Vayden release an excellent CD titled "Children Of Our Mistakes" and welcome two new members, guitarist Armin Peterson and bassist Jason Salomone, they signed a record deal with Silent Majority Group. Instead of rushing Vayden into the studio to record new material, the label opted to remix and remaster "Children Of Our Mistakes" and Silent Majority Group released the disc in June 2008. "Anthem Of The Used" was the first single lifted off Vayden's debut album.
