The Virgins are an American band formed in 2006 in New York, consisting of Donald Cumming (vocals, guitar), Max Kamins (bass), Xan Aird (guitar), and John Eatherly (drums).
They have opened for Iggy Pop and The Stooges, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, Patti Smith, Kenneth Anger, Abel Ferrara, and others. They have also enjoyed several television appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and Last Call with Carson Daly. Their first full length album titled ''The Virgins'' was met with great critical success. They have since played at the All Points West Festival, SXSW festival, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Leeds, Reading, and T in the Park festivals, among other major French, German, Norwegian, Swedish, Dutch, Spanish, and Italian festivals in the summer of 2009. In the fall of 2009 they were invited to perform in Moscow.
