VCage Releases Slam Me, Raising Awareness of Violence and Abuse Against Men
Multi-instrumentalist, VCage, has released his debut single, Slam Me, a track which highlights a subject which is still considered one of the great taboos in society – violence and abuse committed against men by women. VCage was himself the victim of a toxic relationship which spilled over into physical abuse and he hopes Slam Me will give people around the world the confidence to realise they are not alone in their suffering and that it’s right to speak out and act against abuse of all kinds, whatever your gender or background.

2019 statistics show 2.2 million men worldwide suffered physically during an abusive relationship during the previous 12 months, a statistic largely overlooked by the media. Victim to psychological abuse and blackmail from his former partner, Slam Me bravely tackles these issues head on, giving a voice to the reported 1 in 4 men who are abused but never report the crime.
Born in Mexico and now living in Los Angeles, VCage combines a raw emotional rock dynamic with a melodic heart to project his stories which he hopes will resonate with people worldwide. Constructed with his own skills as a multi-instrumentalist, a loop station and even samples of pizza boxes (!), VCage is an artist who transcends genre to bring music to the very centre of how we live our lives.
You touched me like everything was a game You fooled me into a stupid mistake You set my heart on fire
Emotions started to rise to my head Your poison was pumping into my veins I knew that I was gone I never thought that I would fall But I kept craving for more
Go on and slam me against the wall And tell me something that turns me on Make me believe that I am the one Then throw me to the floor You got me thinking it was my fault And I keep begging for you to Stop But then I'm back to see your next move I just can't get enough In silence I cried the lone and the pain Anxiety was the first thing on my day I couldn't even breathe And slowly reality starts to fade I'm living between a dream and a hell I think I’m going insane
No I won't let you take it all This time you are coming back for more Come on I'll slam you against the wall I'll tell you something that turns you on Make you believe that you are the one Then throw you to the floor I'll make you feel like It was your fault And you'll keep begging for me to stop Then you'll be back to see my next move
