Jerome Deupree, one of the original members of Morphine and our current band, Vapors of Morphine, has decided to step down from the throne and hand the sticks over to the one and only Tom Arey (actually we believe Tom will be bringing his own sticks). As sad as we are to see Jerome make this transition out, we understand that there comes a time for such partings. The road is long and winding, filled with many gigs, new projects and some potholes too, but we know that our paths will cross again. We wish you great days ahead, Jerome; it’s been an honor to play all these years with you, old friend!
Note: Jerome and Tom Arey will both appear on the upcoming VoM album, to be released this year.
(Drum-roll, please!) We’re so happy to announce the addition of Tom Arey to Vapors of Morphine. Tom’s a native of Tolland, CT and a well known Boston area drummer. He’s a talented musician, a longtime fan of Morphine and a genuine inspiration to this band. We’re lucky to have him, and we’ve already recorded several tunes with Tom for our upcoming release!
Tom attended Berklee College of Music after high school and has been a professional musician in the Boston area for almost two decades.
He’s been playing with Peter Wolf and the Midnight Travelers since 2012 , toured with the J. Geils Band, and played with other acts like B3 Kings, Ghosts of Jupiter, G-Love, Celso Pixinga, the Adam Ezra Group and many others.
Please welcome Tom to the family! There will be more exciting news to come 💫

Vapors of Morphine will perform selections from Morphine’s landmark album, “Cure for Pain” to honor the 25th anniversary of its release (September 1993), as well as their original material, including songs from their upcoming new album.
The Middle East Nightclub in Cambridge, Massachusetts was one of Morphine’s earliest gigs and one of Mark Sandman’s favorite places to play. So it is only fitting that Vapors of Morphine reprise their highly successful live Cure for Pain show at the Middle East. The band will be performing the classic Morphine album in it’s entirety, again featuring Jimmy Ryan, Ken Winokur and Evan Harriman. (This is an 18+ event, so we welcome some of our younger audience members!) The show is October 6th, 2018. There will be two seatings, at 6 and 9; the 9pm show has already sold out! Tickets for the 6pm show will go on sale Monday, July 9th, when they can be purchased HERE:
