The band hit the scene with their debut album “Highly Evolved” in 2002. The highly successful “Winning Days” followed in 2004 and featured the hit singles “Ride” and “F.T.W.” The former song was featured in a number of advertisements for Apple, Nissan, NASCAR, and The WB. They consistently released albums throughout the years including 2011's “Future Primitive.” That year also saw the departure of Hamish Rosser and Ryan Griffiths, former drummer and guitar player respectively. In 2012 Rosser went on to join Wolfmother. The Vines have continued making music as a three piece. In the same year, the band posted updates on their Facebook stating they have begun working on their sixth album.
