"Alpha Waves" fades into "Always: Your Way" on ''Finelines''.


After their moderate UK success, they aimed for success in the United States. Anybody who knows anything about popular music history knows that in the beginning of the 2000s is just about the time real adventurous alternative music was getting zero commercial support from record companies. With the exception of the heavy-weights that made a name for themselves in the 90s, if you weren't following some type of cookie-cutter {{post-grunge}} or {{Coldplay}} rip-off record companies would do nothing to promote your album. So ''Finelines'' had a massive shipment to the US and it sold poorly. To make matters worse, ExecutiveMeddling pushed for the album to be re-issued with a second disc with outtakes and B-sides, thus wasting more of the band's money.

In 2001 they released ''Finelines'', their one and only full-length album. It met critical acclaim and showed My Vitriol as a possible contender for "Voice of a generation". Many critics and fans expected them to be propelled into a status enjoyed only by bands such as {{Music/Nirvana}} and {{Radiohead}}. It seemed like My Vitriol had a promising career ahead of them.

Since then, the follow-up to ''Finelines'' has been in DevelopmentHell. The band are still fondly remembered, but thanks to the huge wave of new {{Shoegazing}} artists they're lack of activity has made them somewhat of a footnote in AlternativeRock history. Strangely enough, their story marks similarities to Music/MyBloodyValentine (namely the sparking of an interest in effects-based experimentation and the long wait since their MagnumOpus). My Vitriol are notable for taking {{Shoegazing}}'s sound and giving it a modern, more melodic edge.

* DevelopmentHell- The follow-up to ''Finelines'' has left fans waiting over 10 years.



* ExecutiveMeddling- The reason why ''Finelines'' faced no success in the US.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes- The ChannelFour documentary about their follow up only aired once and saw a handful of physical copies. Ten minutes of it is available on Website/YouTube, but said ten minutes don't explain much. It's nearly impossible to find the full thing in it's entirety. Rumor has it was never seen again in it's entirety because it contains footage that portrays the record company in a negative light.
* OneHitWonder- In the UK "Always: Your Way".



* WhatCouldHaveBeen- A shoegaze band in position as a "voice of a generation"? You can't deny that would have been awesome.
** Some people blame the rise of GarageRock revivalism for why My Vitriol didn't get as famous as they could have been, while others like to blame PostGrunge.
** The second album which became just a 4-song EP. You can get an image of what the album was supposed to sound like if you can get a hold of the ''Cast In Ambers'' live album. There's a bonus track at the end of the album that gave you a 30 second taste of what each song sounded like.

2014. However, this date came and went, and the band has postponed the album to an undisclosed date and shut down fan-club updates. This has left many to believe that the band has once again failed to finish an album.


MyVitriol is a British alternative rock band consisting of Som Wardner (vocals, guitar and lyrics), Ravi Kesavaram (drums), Seth Taylor (guitar) and Laura Claire (bass), responsible for the {{Shoegazing}} resurgence of the 2000s. The band was formed in 1999 and enjoyed play on alternative and indie radio stations throughout the UK until 2001 when they landed a better recording deal.

MyVitriol, frustrated with the exhausting touring efforts to try to promote their album as best as they can, went on a hiatus that lasted 4 years. They got back together and did a tour opening for the Music/FooFighters and then went back into the recording studio. They had their fanbase release a live album titled ''Cast In Ambers'' that featured a 6-minute sample of the songs that were to appear on the next album. Fan opinion was lukewarm, except for about 4 of the tracks. With the exception of those 4 tracks (which were to appear on an EP titled ''A Pyhrric Victory'') they scrapped the album. What also didn't help was the fact that only about 7 tracks were even recorded in the first place.

* {{Narm}}- Not all of their music, but some of their lesser quality songs are very Narmy. Especially the {{Madonna}} cover.


* TheCoverChangesTheGender -- They have a cover version of {{Madonna}}'s "Oh Father" and the feel is much different with a male singer.
