With no warning, Fearless Vampire Killers have just dropped a lyric video for their infectiously pounding new track Braindead and it’s nothing like you’ve heard them before. Check it out below.
Co-singer Kier says:
“This track marks our first move into a new chapter for FVK. Guided by our friend Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns), we set out to capture something that felt new but maintained a certain atmosphere. This is something we’ve continued to work on a lot since writing Braindead, and I really feel like we’re starting to find something exciting musically. The song talks about becoming a bit isolated but adds a little twist. Hopefully this will tickle your curiosity as for what is to come, as there’s plenty more on the horizon.”
Braindead will be released digitally as a double A-Side on 21st August, which will also feature additional new track Danger.
It’s been one hell of a ride since Fearless Vampire Killers released their impressively ambitious sophomore album Unbreakable Hearts in November last year. Kicking off 2015 by breaking into Europe for the first time with not one, but two mammoth tours as support to US rock giants Black Veil Brides and In This Moment, followed by a UK headline tour, topped off with a slot at Download Festival, the band are going from strength to strength. And there’s still more to come…
Fearless Vampire Killers are currently gearing up for Havoc Festival, their own curated festival which takes place at The Boston Music Room, London, on 9th August. The band have handpicked a line-up to showcase the best in emerging British rock music, including Forever Never, Allusondrugs, Zoax and more. They’ll then embark on their third European stint this year, this time as support to tour buddies Annisokay in October.
Fearless Vampire Killers are a brilliantly creative force to be reckoned with in British rock, with Braindead being the sound of a band scaling new heights. Expect more from the London goths soon.
