Vuvuvultures are pleased to announce the release of their debut album 'Push/Pull' on the 29th July through Energy Snake Records. The band will be playing live throughout the summer including a UK headline tour, an album release show at Rough Trade East and a slot at London's Hard Rock Calling festival.
The band have also unveiled the lead single from the album 'Steel Bones'.
When Vuvuvultures first fly across your field of vision, you could be forgiven for thinking them a bit intense, perhaps even intimidating.
There's the dark, some might say gothic imagery that peppers their visuals and videos: eyes in mouths, mouths for eyes, lips dribbling black blood. The backstory is uncompromisingly underground: self-promoted parties in abandoned buildings, rather than the regular new-band circuit.
But then you actually hear those songs, and the word that springs to mind, more often than not, is 'pop.'
After the release of their self-titled debut EP in 2012, Vuvuvultures have been on a steady rise to power. Having extensively toured the UK and Europe, their captivating and abrasive live show earned them plaudits, resulting in an invitation to support Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster at their famous Halloween show at Camden's Electric Ballroom.
