Vein is a hardcore punk band from Boston, Massachusetts that formed in 2013. They are known for their frequent tours and have performed shows with groups such as Code Orange[5] and Twitching Tongues while in Europe.[6] In 2017 the band was signed onto Closed Casket Activities, who would issue their first full-length work Errorzone to warm reception among critics, even appearing on Revolvers early "Best Albums of 2018" list.[7] The album also managed to peak at #21 in Billboard charts' Hard Rock album chart.[8]

The band's sound is a variation of hardcore punk with influences from screamo, mathcore, drum and bass, nu metal, and horror soundtracks to films and games.[9][2] with Errorzone especially noted for its nu metal sound.[2][10]

In February 2019, Vein was featured in The Washington Post, along with contemporaries Portrayal of Guilt and Infant Island, as delivering "new life" to screamo.[4]
