Vex Red are a band from Aldershot, England who merged hard rock with electronica.[citation needed] They were signed to US Producer Ross Robinson's Virgin Records Imprint record label, I Am, after sending a demo EP to Robinson. They litigated their way off the label in late 2002, and singer Terry Abbott formed a new band Septembre. Some of the remaining members went on to form another new band, Scenes. Ben Calvert has also played with Killing Joke and more recently, Malpractice – which also contains Mark Chapman, (an ex-member of A) and Adam F. Guitarists Ant Forbes and Nick Goulding both Tour Managed bands until late 2016. Ant now runs music production company Cato Music. Bassist Keith Lambert played a brief stint with Martin Grech and now works in computers.
