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!”

“I am beyond excited to announce Vampires Everywhere will be taking the stage again. I put so much blood, sweat, & tears into this project! It’s honestly a fantastic feeling to be revisiting something that brought so much hope to people. After launching the new VE Instagram & seeing the love the band had received, I felt it was the right time to resurrect an old friend. That being said, I don’t exactly know what else is in store for the band. But, I can assure you it will be done right. We’ll be playing music from “Kiss The Sun Goodbye”, “Hellbound & Heartless”, & “Ritual” plus some surprises!”
