Vektor has issued the following recap of their recent U.S. tour alongside Heavy Artillery Records label mates Exmortus:
"People of Earth: Vektor is home at last from our first US tour Winter Mayhem, and by all accounts it was a resounding success (unless you count being fucking freezing for a solid month)! There were so many awesome shows and fun times had by all. First and foremost we have to thank everyone that showed up to the shows and rocked with us, picked up a shirt, and hung out with us. We met so many awesome people over that month that it's hard to even remember it all, and we thank you for it. Of course the other big thank you goes to our brothers in Exmortus for all of their help and for being great guys. There's not a lot of people I'd want to live in a van with, but if I had to choose, those guys would be at the top of the list. Finally, our rad merch guy and good friend Ryan Johnson deserves an honorable mention for coming along and sacrificing so much of his time just to help us out.
"We also wanted to apologize to Boston for missing out on your show, due to problems beyond our control. We are working on our summer tour plans (which will be more extensive, due to the better weather) and we will be making it up to you! Sorry to anyone who showed up to find us not there, we only had so much time to give notice that we couldn't make it. More...

The debut full length album, "Black Future," from Arizona based thrashers VEKTOR will be released worldwide on November 17th on HEAVY ARTILLERY RECORDS. The band has posted the title track from their new album on their MySpace page.
HEAVY ARTILLERY RECORDS has announced the signing of Phoenix, AZ based futuristic thrashers, VEKTOR. Refusing to be pigeon-holed into any metal sub-genre, VEKTOR employs an array of intricacy, virtuosity and a wholly unique sound that sets them apart from other thrash bands. Their debut full length album, "Black Future" on HEAVY ARTILLERY, is tentatively slated for release in August 2009.
Conceived in 2004 by front man / guitarist David DiSanto and lead shredder Erik Nelson, VEKTOR quickly forged a formidable name for themselves amongst the Phoenix metal contingent for their unique mix of technical, speed thrash and progressive influences. Going against the grain of the Phoenix metal scene, VEKTOR created a wave of interest with their self released CD "Demolition" (2006) and the two track demo "Hunger for Violence" (2007). After four years of local and regional gigging opening for such national acts as TESTAMENT, HIRAX, ICED EARTH and MUNICIPAL WASTE, VEKTOR is preparing to hit the road for their first national tour alongside label mates EXMORTUS in support of Black Future.
