Vicious Rumors Announces New Band Lineup

Vicious Rumors starts a new chapter and welcomes new band members Nick Holleman on lead vocals, Tilen Hudrap on bass guitar, and welcome back Bob Capka on guitar. The following press release was issued about the new lineup:

"Nick, a native of Holland, has a powerful melodic voice with great range and tone. A natural talent with high octane stage presence and endless sustain. VR fans old and new were stunned by his performance on the last tour in the USA. Nick was hired on the spot after seeing a video on Youtube!

"Tilen is a native of Slovenia. After a series of auditions, Tilen was hired last summer to fill in on tour. The band liked his aggressive playing and monster stage presence so much that he was invited to join the band as a full time member after his first show in July. Tilen already played 2 world tours with the band (Europe and USA, 50 shows) and appears in the newest video for the title track off the current album 'Electric Punishment.'

"VR welcomes back Bob Capka, who played on the highly acclaimed 'Electric Punishment' CD and has been on 3 tours in Europe and the USA. Bob brings shredding solos and riffs as well as a hunter's killer attitude to the stage show.

"Original members guitar player Geoff Thorpe and drummer Larry Howe are proud to officially announce that this killer new line-up has already recorded a new live album!

"The legendary institution that is Vicious Rumors is stronger and faster than ever. After eighty shows on tour in 2013, the new VR line-up has recorded the massive 'Live U to Death 2 American Punishment.'

"VR has captured the power and precision with classics that have never been recorded live. 'Towns on Fire,' 'Worlds and Machines,' 'Master Mind,' 'World Church,' 'You Only Live Twice,' to name a few. Thirteen tracks in total. The album was recorded during the 'American Punishment Tour' in the United States of America in Sept/Oct 2013.

"Four albums in four years the mighty, VR ball is sharper then ever. Upcoming tours include European summer festivals, a South America Tour in September/October and also Australian/New Zealand shows in 2014. Vicious Rumors will play the 70,000 Tons of Metal festival cruise this year from January 27th - January 31st playing the whole 'Digital Dictator' album in its entirety for the first time ever!

"Don't miss VR's epic Heavy Metal Attack... 'Live U to Death 2 American Punishment' on SPV/Steamhammer to be released early 2014. Look for VR on Tour as the ball rolls through your town in the 2014."
