E.N.V.Y. is a rock band from the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. The guys have just finished their EP.
Through all their past incarnations and former bands, the members of E.N.V.Y. have grown into a musical tyrant collectively. The two founding members of the band, Chuck Kerr (Drums) and Mike McGee (Guitar/Vocals) have seen many incarnations of what was once a fledgling, yet enthusiastic past time. Over the years, Chuck and Mike have seen many members come and go as the band changed names or simply took a break for some time.
On question of the name, Carl said: "The guys at that point were using the name Died Tryng, which people always tried to correct the spelling of, and the name was a play on the fact they had problems finding a frontman. So, Chuck and I had thought up the name E.N.V.Y. for a side project we had started and never got to finish. We brought it up to Mike and Kevin and they dug it, liked the meaning it had, and we rolled with it."
