On March 19, 2007, THEATRES DES VAMPIRES released its latest album, "Desire of Damnation" — a double CD featuring live recordings from "The Addiction" tour in 2006 and several new studio songs and remixes.
The name THEATRES DES VAMPIRES was inspired by a fictional location created by gothic fantasy writer Anne Rice of the same name. Rice's Theatres des Vampires is a Parisian theatre in which vampires pretend to be mortal actors, their performances consisting of the feeding on mortals disguised as part of a play and staged in front of human audiences. The location is mentioned in several of Rice's books, including "Interview with the Vampire" and "The Vampire Lestat".
