2021 Rebel Rock Festival Cancelled

The 2021 Rebel Rock festival in Orlando, FL has officially been cancelled. The event was unable to move forward due to unfit conditions related to severe weather.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“We are deeply and utterly devastated to announce the cancellation of this weekend’s Rebel Rock Festival.

After this week’s severe weather and despite our crew’s effort to improve the ground conditions around the Main Stage over the last three days, our venue partner has deemed the area unfit for artists, crews, vendors, and fans. We were able to get in the Taco Metal Party on Thursday by using the B-Main grounds while continuing to work on the conditions of the Main Stage grounds. The amount of water dropped this week simply proved to be too much to clear to provide you a safe festival environment and experience. We can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is to see two years of work be tackled by mother nature.

We’ll share more information about refunds as soon as possible.”

Vampires Everywhere! Return With New Song “Witch”

Vampires Everywhere! have premiered a new video for their new song “Witch.” The track serves as the band’s first new music since they went on hiatus in 2016 and it will appear on their upcoming EP “The Awakening.”

Frontman Michael Vampire told Knotfest.com the following about the new song:

“I am super proud of “Witch” our first single off our upcoming EP on Cleopatra Records ‘The Awakening’. Me and Craig Pirtle (guitars) set out to write an album based on our love of 808’s, the emerging shift in rock culture, & goth rock. We wanted to stray far away from our last musical endeavor with DGA and write something purely based on our love of music. We didn’t want to focus directly on radio and took a more organic approach to the writing.”

He also added the following about the new EP:

“It’s been over 6 years since I screamed in that specific tonality and knew it would be special. We decided to write all the songs on ‘The Awakening’ based on synth beatlines. We wanted the beat of the song to tell the story before I even laid down the vocals. I can say it’s been a massive learning experience writing like that and I found it super refreshing! I also wanted to focus on the sound all the fans are used to and loved throughout the band’s past 11 years. When you listen to the EP as a whole you will instantly feel VE nostalgia with a fresh twist of 2021! I wanted an album my fans would love but also wanted to keep things up to date and fresh feeling. Nothing is worse than dated rock music!”
