Who We Are
With an intense and high energy live show, Ventruss has made a name for themselves in the southern Hard Rock/Metal scene. Hailing from Baton Rouge, LA, Hard Rock/Metal outfit Ventruss are on a mission to spread their infectious sound to the entire world. Formed in 2012, the line up consists of Ben Jewell on vocals, Shawn Saizan & Jesse Newman on guitar, Steven Sessum, Jr. on bass and BJ Davidson on drums. For fans of Avenged Sevenfold, All That Remains, and Trivium, Ventruss seems like the perfect fit for you. In early 2014, Ventruss hit the studio with David Troia (Evanescence, Down, Godsmack) to begin recording their 7 track EP entitled “Come Alive” which was released December 26, 2014. Their first single, “Lost” has gotten a significant amount of airtime on Louisiana radio stations such as Planet Radio 105.1 out in Lafayette, and the now defunct Rock 93.7, also in Lafayette.
Throughout their career, Ventruss has played several shows throughout the Southern United States rocking big venues such as the House of Blues in downtown New Orleans, and sharing the stage with national and international touring artists such as Kadavar (Germany), Mothership, Silent Planet, As Artifacts, In Her Own Words, Framing Hanley, War of Ages, 12 Stones, Texas Hippie Coalition, Otherwise, 3 Pill Morning, Thousand Foot Krutch, Cilver, Adelitas Way, Bad Seed Rising, Islander, Gemini Syndrome, To Speak of Wolves, Hellyeah, Badflower, Red Sun Rising, Pop Evil, Starset, Through Fire, All That Remains, Child Bite, King Parrot, Superjoint, Dayshell, Ghost Town, Slaves and much more.
