Yep, we’ve done it. We’ve bought into the hype, the excitement, the inevitable disappointment and incoming indifference…

For the next month – Vulture Hound does Euro 2016.

The premise is simple:

– Each of the 24 competing nations at this years European Championship in France has been randomly assigned a band recently featured by Vulture Hound (you can see the rigorously adjudicated draw below).

– The football will be played, but in our eyes it won’t be England v Russia or Portugal v Hungary, it’ll be Future of the Left v Queen and Adam Lambert, Barenaked Ladies v HECK. Much more exciting.

– And on Sunday July 10th, one of our 24 bands will be crowned the winner of VH Music’s Euro 2016.
