New Album "Piece Of Cake" Coming From Vengeance

Brimming with confidence and justifiable pride legendary Dutch hard rock band Vengeance has announced the release of their latest album "Piece Of Cake." The album will be issued on October 25th (Germany), October 28th (EU) and November 5th (North America) via SPV/Steamhammer.

Gutarist Timo Somers (Delain) explains: "People can expect what to my ears is the best Vengeance album to date. The songs are a nice blend of old school Vengeance (think 'Arabia') and some more modern sounding songs. This time the instrumental side of the band is really outspoken, it features a lot of nice intros, solos and instrumental pieces. And to top it off, Leon sounds better than ever."

Somers promises eleven gripping new compositions: "'Raintime' is the fastest song on the album. The song kind of sounds like a Malmsteen song with Leon on vocals. Double bass, big chorus and a fast guitar solo are the keywords."

The most typical song is the title track "Piece Of Cake." Somers again: "We needed a party song for the album and we wrote this together in about an hour in the studio. It`s this typical AC/DC thing with Leon going nuts and some Van Halen like guitars."

As for the album's most unusual song "Back To Square One," a blues rock ballad in the vein of Gary Moore, Somers says: "I don't think a lot of people know this side of Vengeance, but it showcases our more soulful side."

Vengeance embarks on a European tour with labelmates Mad Max. Says Timo Somers: "This is a double tour together with Mad Max to celebrate our new albums being released on the same day. I'm pretty sure we'll be on tour in spring 2014 as well - we're working on that at the moment."

Confirmed dates are as follows:

06.11. D-Hamburg - Ballroom/R`n`R Warehouse
07.11. D-Osnabrück - Bastard Club
