Accelerators offer Blow To The Head

Virgil And The Accelerators have released a video for their track Blow To The Head, taken from upcoming album Army Of Three.

It’s set for launch on October 6 via Mystic Records, and sees award-winning guitarist Virgil McMahon and co reunited with producer Chris Tsangarides. Their 2011 debut secured them a Best Of The Year listing in Classic Rock.

Production on Army Of Three was held up while Tsangarides fought off a near-fatal attack of Legionnaire’s disease, which sent him to hospital for three months. VATA bassist Jack Alexander Timmis says: “He was lucky to come out of it alive.”
