Vektor Checks In With Band Activity Update

Arizona based virtuosic thrash act Vektor has issued the following update about the band's recent and upcoming activity:

"We wanted to give an update for everyone on what's been going on in Vektor world since tour ended and what the future holds... First off, our 6-week trek around the US in June/July/Aug. was a god damn blast. Thanks for everyone who came out to the shows and supported us, helped us with booking, or gave us a floor to crash on. We appreciate it immensely. Made a lot of new friends, heard some great bands and spread the Vektor disease as far as we could. If we still haven't hit your area on this tour or the previous winter tour, we are definitely trying to for the future (San Francisco, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, etc).

"The vinyl release of Black Future is finally out, and we apologize for the delay. It was released 9/14 in 3 versions (all of them are 2LP, full artwork gatefold): - Black vinyl (300 copies) - Blue/Purple Splatter vinyl with cover artwork slipmat, hand-numbered (100 copies) - Green vinyl with logo slipmat, hand-numbered (100 copies)

"They are going rather quickly and will NOT be repressed any time in the near future, so get over to Heavy Artillery's webstore to grab one of those before they are gone! Heavy Artillery helped us put together some really, really cool packages for these and they are really awesome collector's items that look and sound fucking rad. Best to buy now, so you don't have to pay out the ass on eBay in 10 years.

"Since the tour ended we've been laying pretty low show-wise, but there are a few coming -- first off we're gonna be playing both Thrashoween shows in California in October. The 22nd is in Escondido at Metaphor Cafe, and the 23rd is in Riverside at the Common Ground. The day after all of that madness, our friends and label-mates Vindicator will be in AZ rocking out with us at Chaser's in Scottsdale. November 20 we'll be in Vegas for the first time ever, with Warbringer, Hexen, and more at Cheyenne Saloon, so come rock out for that one as well!

"Other than that our main focus right now is writing for the next album (while two of us finally get school out of the way in December). We're working hard with new material and a lot of it is coming out awesome so far. Once it gets tightened up, tweaked, and finalized, our aim is to get in the studio some time in the winter. Probably early 2011, putting the album out around March or April. Don't hold us to that, it's just an estimate. Might be earlier, might be later.

"After that we head to Europe for Keep it True and a few weeks of shows out there (TBD), then probably some VERY extensive touring after that. Once school is out of the way we're going to go pretty all out as far as touring goes, and we hope to take it as far as we can. We do need all the help and support we can get from YOU though.

"So since we are sort of in writing/rehearsing mode, don't expect a lot of major updates until November or December. But keep in touch! We can't wait for everyone to hear the new material and to see everyone out on tour again."
