Victims Announces New Member, EP, and Tour with Trap Them

Victims announced through the Deathwish Inc. page that they have picked up a new member for their band.

"...We're proud and happy to announce our new/second/first/lead/rhythm guitar player (Oh, let's put it this way: we have TWO guitar players now). Ladies and gents, Gareth Smith. He joined early this year and is doing great with us! After his break up with long time lover RAGING SPEEDHORN (1998-2008) he felt the need to keep trashing and here he is now. We won't just sit around in the rehearsal space making plans to take over the world or perfecting our sound..."

Victims is releasing a new 7" EP, "Lies, Lies, Lies" but hasn't announced a release date. The two-song record features artwork from J.Bannon (Converge) and is reportedly "hook-laden" and "infectious."

Victims is also striking out with label mates Trap Them and Hot Mass band Black Breath. You can see the tour dates after the jump.
