NEW VAMPS ALBUM COMING OUT THIS SPRING!
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 21, 2017) — VAMPS, the visually-arresting Japanese rock band featuring HYDE (L’Arc-en-Ciel) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust) announced today that they will be returning to the U.S. this spring to join I PREVAIL and STARSET on their upcoming May U.S. tour (see dates below). U.K. newcomers AS LIONS will also join select dates with opener COVER YOUR TRACKS rounding out
the tour lineup.
VAMPS vocalist HYDE states: “Playing with some of the most exciting rock bands out there, I Prevail and Starset, is an honor and we’re very much looking forward to this tour. We had a great North American tour last Fall but time was limited so we’re thrilled to come back this spring and hit more cities.”
Adds VAMPS guitarist K.A.Z.: “We can’t wait to see all of our loyal U.S. fans and make new ones.
Every time we’ve come to the United States we’ve received a tremendously warm welcome so we’re stoked to play some brand new songs from our forthcoming album to all of you for the first time. See you at the shows!”

VAMPS just wrapped up in the studio with writer/producer KANE CHURKO (In This Moment, Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne, Papa Roach) to put finishing touches on their next full length album, out later this spring. Check out an exclusive music preview here.
I PREVAIL’s current single, “Alone” is climbing up the SiriusXM Octane chart and has already reached #5. STARSET’s new album VESSELS recently debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #1 on the iTunes Rock Chart.
Last Fall, VAMPS crashed North American soil for select headline dates which included stops in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Toronto and Mexico City in support of two new songs: “Inside of Me” featuring CHRIS MOTIONLESS from MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, and “Rise or Die” which was co-written with EMIGRATE/RAMMSTEIN guitarist RICHARD Z. KRUSPE.
“Inside Of Me” was the first VAMPS track to ever receive airplay on SiriusXM Octane and impressively won the weekly Octane Twitter poll by a landslide. The song has since become the band’s biggest streaming success to date. Get “Inside Of me” and “Rise Or Die” on itunes and Apple Music here or stream them on Spotify here. Official music video: “Inside of Me”.
