Interview and Live Photos by Robert Cavuoto
Building on the success of their previous two releases, Art of Anarchy  with Scott Weiland and The Madness  with Scott Stapp, the band is back for their third release, Let There Be Anarchy , with a new single, “Vilified,” and a new singer, Jeff Scott Soto!
The world may have changed since they released The Madness, but you can’t keep a solid Rock band down! The latest iteration of Art of Anarchy features Jon Votta [guitar], Vince Votta [drums], Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal [guitar], Jeff Scott Soto [vocals], and Tony Dickinson [bass], who are back with a vengeance. The new album will be released via Pavement Entertainment on February 16, 2024.
The new single “Vilified” is heavy and dark, laced with tasty progressive undertones. The song is sung with a true sense of passion with meaningful and relevant lyrical content that revolves around the insane times we are all dealing with while giving a tip of the hat to The Joker movie. The band’s live performance for “Vilified” was filmed on the same steps in Brooklyn, NY, where the Joker filmed his dance scene and features Cuba Gooding Jr. throughout the video.

In my interview with Bumblefoot, he shared what fans can expect musically from Let There Be Anarchy, a tour that is in the works, his favorite aspects of the band’s first two releases, and how guitarist Jon Votta, wrote a majority of the songs for the album while in bed dealing with a severe illness!
