Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


Meet the latest addition to the VMP Rising family, Chicago musician Jackie Hayes. 

She has one of those voices that is often categorized as sounding beyond her years. But when you hear about the path of the singer-songwriter-guitarist’s journey to releasing her stellar There’s Always Going to Be Something EP, then you understand why her every verse and chorus is brimming with an uncommon grit and soul. On standout songs like “brand new” and “have fun” she captures a sense of youthful ennui, but never blunts her edge. This project represents a dive headfirst into the world of alternative music, a genre Hayes always enjoyed but stayed away from making herself. She proves a natural at it, and her ear for both lingering hooks and pummeling guitar lines makes her modern message feel timeless.
