VICIOUS RUMORS' New Album To Feature Guest Appearances By TESTAMENT, NIGHT RANGER Members

San Francisco Bay Area metallers VICIOUS RUMORS will kick off a new European headlining tour on October 8, 2010 in Würzburg, Germany, preceded by a warm-up show two days earlier at the Avalon Ballroom in Santa Clara, California.

A list of upcoming dates can be found at this location.

VICIOUS RUMORS is back in the studio recording its 10th album for an early 2011 release. Guitarist/leader Geoff Thorpe and the rest of the band have 12 new crushing tracks which they are laying down at Trident Studios in Pacheco, California with producer Juan Urteaga. Special guests Eric Peterson (TESTAMENT, DRAGONLORD) and Brad Gillis (NIGHT RANGER, OZZY OSBOURNE) will handle the insane guitar solos along with Geoff and VICIOUS RUMORS' other guitarist, Kiyoshi Morgan.

VICIOUS RUMORS' current lineup is completed by drummer Larry Howe, bassist Stephen Goodwin and the group's latest addition, vocalist Brian Allen (LAST EMPIRE, MALICE, WILD DOGS).

VICIOUS RUMORS will co-headline the Keep It True festival in Germany in April 2011 with a special tribute to late VR singer Carl Albert featuring Kevin Albert on vocals (Carl's son), along with appearances by other former members of the band.
