Fearless Vampire Killers reveal Bruises

Fearless Vampire Killers have announced they’ll released their Bruises mini-album on October 23.

It’s their first release since 2014 album Unbreakable Hearts and the band have issued a teaser video for the six-track record. View it below.

Vocalist and guitarist Kier Kemp says: “Bruises comes from the heart. It’s allowed us to explore a whole new side of the band commenting on the darker side of human nature.

“It’s still dark, but much more frank. Our ability as musicians and songwriters has also developed, so I think it’s pretty unanimous within the band that this is our best material yet.”

Bruises is available to pre-order on a range of formats via the band’s website. They’ll kick off a European tour in October.
