Vaura is an experimental band from Brooklyn, New York, formed in 2009 by singer, guitarist and primary songwriter Joshua Strawn and featuring Kevin Hufnagel (Dysrhythmia, Gorguts) on lead guitar, Toby Driver (Kayo Dot, Maudlin of the Well, Secret Chiefs 3) on bass and Charlie Schmid on drums.
Vaura's debut album, "Selenelion", was released on Wierd Records in February 2011. Stereogum described the record as "a warped, heady strain of metal, one that incorporates bits and pieces of black metal, post-rock, and prog, melting them all into one singular brooding sludge".
The band has toured in support of French group Alcest and has played with Bloody Panda, Sannhet, Deafheaven, Monarch and Castevet.
In early 2013, Vaura was signed to Profound Lore Records. Their sophomore effort, "The Missing", was released by the label on November 12, 2013.
Six years later Vaura released their third full length, "Sables", via Profound Lore Records yet.
