Vicious Rumors, are in the studio recording their 9th studio album scheduled for release in May 06. Laying down the tracks on this release will be an all-star, veteran lineup: Geoff Thorpe (guitars), Brad Gillis (guitars), James Rivera (vocals), Dave Starr (bass) and Larry Howe (drums).

Brad Gillis (Ozzy, Night Ranger) returns to metal with Vicious Rumors for their new cd and tour. Brad entered the metal scene in 1982, stepping up to replace the late, great, Randy Rhoades on Ozzy’s “Diary of a Madman” tour. Brad left Ozzy following his electrifying performance on “Speak of the Devil – Live” and went on to multi-platinum success with Night Ranger. There is no doubt that Brad’s guitar work is sure to be a formidable addition to the VR guitar assault.

James Rivera (Helstar, Flotsam & Jetsam, Seven Witches) brings a true metal spirit to Vicious Rumors. With his powerful and dynamic voice, James has recorded and toured with many legendary metal outfits and now finds a new home in VR for their 2006 release and tour.

Dave Starr, VR’s original bass player, has rejoined the band. Dave performed on VR’s earliest releases including, “Soldiers of the Night”, “Vicious Rumors” self-titled album, “Welcome to the Ball” and “Plug in and Hang On – Live”. With Dave’s return, the band is now 3 original members strong reforming the very nucleus that originated VR’s classic style and sound.

“This is truly a very exciting time for VR. The chemistry between the five of us is very wicked!” says band founder, Geoff Thorpe.

Vicious Rumors is planning a worldwide tour in support of their new CD following its release this spring.
