Vacuity were a Canadian indie rock band from Kitchener. Vacuity's albums include The Middle Ground, released in 2004, and 2006's Come On Get Real. The band released its 2008 album, At the Command of a Blanket Sky on CD, USB Drive, and as a free download via their website, and released the song "The 5th of November" as a single. According to some critics, the band's sound is similar to that of Radiohead.[1][2]

In 2006, Vacuity played the North by Northeast festival,[4] and in 2008–09 the band toured Canada in support of At the Command of a Blanket Sky.[5][6][7] Vacuity disbanded in January 2013.
