VAMPIRES EVERYWHERE!: New Video Interview With MICHAEL VAMPIRE
- July 2, 2012
Robert Herrera of PunkVideosRock.com conducted an interview with vocalist Michael Vampire of Los Angeles-based goth-metallers VAMPIRES EVERYWHERE! on June 22 at the Ventura, California stop of the Vans Warped Tour. You can now watch the chat below.
VAMPIRES EVERYWHERE!'s sophomore album, "Hellbound And Heartless", sold around 2,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 10 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"Hellbound And Heartless" was released on June 19 via Hollywood Waste Records. According to a press release, the CD "showcases the darker side of VAMPIRES EVERYWHERE!, focusing on message-driven lyrics and deriving musical influence from industrial rock icons such as MARILYN MANSON and ROB ZOMBIE. "
"Hellbound And Heartless" was co-produced by the band and Mike Sarkisyan and Tommy Decker, both members of Grammy-nominated alternative-metal act SPINESHANK. Every song on the album presents a fresh, new morsel of gothic darkness for fans to sink their teeth into.
"Early on while recording this record I felt an amazing force behind it," said vocalist Michael Vampire. "'Hellbound And Heartless' is a piece of me and a lyrical representation of who I am. I dedicate this record to our fans and everyone that believed in our vision. Get ready for the new name in horror rock 'n' roll... VAMPIRES EVERYWHERE!"
