Today sees FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS turn a new leaf as they release their BRAINDEAD / DANGER double A-Side. With two game-changing tracks, the release marks a transition towards a new phase for the band. And to celebrate the occasion, the dark pop 5-piece have unveiled a brand new video for DANGER.
“This is only the beginning. This double A-side is the floodgates for what’s going to be a torrent of new material we have on the way. I’m actually twitching with excitement waiting for you to hear all this!”
– Kier Kemp, Co-singer
BRAINDEAD was recently revealed by lyric video and generated widespread praise, landing the band their first play on Daniel P Carter’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show. The track has received further spins on Kerrang! and Amazing Radio, with huge support from regional radio.
It’s been one hell of a ride since FVK released their impressively ambitious sophomore album UNBREAKABLE HEARTS in November last year. Positive response to the record provided ammunition for a relentless year of touring. They kicked off 2015 by breaking into Europe for the first time with not one, but two mammoth tours as support to US rock giants In This Moment and Black Veil Brides, followed with their own stage at Takedown Festival, a UK headline tour, a slot on Download Festival’s second stage, recently topping all this off with their self-curated event HAVOC FESTIVAL. The band are showing no signs of rest as there’s plenty more to come.
FVK are currently gearing up for appearances at Macmillan Festival and Mapfest, before returning to Europe for the third time this year, this time as support to touring buddies Annisokay. They’ll then return to London to perform at Warped Tour. FVK are also putting the final touches to their forthcoming comic book The Vigilante, the artwork for which was designed by talented fan Ryan Hogan and the story penned by co-singer Laurence Beveridge and bassist Drew Woolnough.
