Can you feel it? There’s a rumble in your ears, a tremble in your knees, the world as you’ve known it is about to split, swallow you up whole and spit you out! Then, and only then, you will know you’ve heard ‘BodyQuake’ the long awaited and eagerly anticipated third album from Laura Vane and The Vipertones!
It may seem like a long time since me and the guys took to the stage, but rest assured that we’ve been focusing all our efforts in the studio to create a new, hot and exciting sound! This album and indeed the band, have been on a journey for the past 18 months, peering through various windows, stretching into different spaces and smashing together diverse flavours in order to bring you what we all believe to be, the best of our song writing in 2014. The album struts about with all kinds of instrumentation from hard electric guitar and dirty synth bass lines to delicate emotional strings and infectious hooky harmonica. With dance grooves to sustain the heat and ballads to cool you off gently, this album puts ticks in all the boxes!
We are also pleased to announce that we have been blessed with very special guest vocalist on one of our new songs. The very talented Jono McCleery with his super soulful and distinctive tone, joins me for a duet and brings a sharp burst of contrast and beautiful harmony to the album. I’ve known Jono for years and it’s so great to finally work on a record together.
We’re thrilled to let you know that next month you will be able to get your hands on our first single ‘Pictures’, along with a video so that you can get familiar very quickly! As our first offering from ‘BodyQuake’ we cannot wait for you to hear it! You will be able to download it and view the video online, but more about that very soon…
Looking forward to playing plenty of shows in 2014 and making a lot of noise! Those of you that have seen us perform in the past might notice a difference on stage as we have shrunk ourselves down to a tidy and powerful 5 piece. Remember to keep checking out our live listings here and get along to a show!
In the meantime, please don’t be shy and keep our BIG NEWS to yourself – spread the word and support me and the boys! We appreciate you guys, and are excited about sharing this next step of the journey with you!
Get onboard! More soon… Laura x
