VICIOUS RUMORS recently returned to the studio to begin 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 spent time 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.
