Fearless Vampire Killers Release Double A-Side 'Something Terminal / Delicate'
Fearless Vampire Killers have released their first new music since 2016 today, in the form of double A-Side Something Terminal / Delicate on Silent Cult.
'Something Terminal' and 'Delicate' showcase two sides to Fearless Vampire Killers. The title track captures their penchant for dark theatrics, soaring melodies and unpredictable musicality. It boldly sits just under nine minutes and is a representation of the ups and downs of Fearless Vampire Killers’ turbulent journey, with ultimate focus on new beginnings. Delicate contrasts with its anthemic stomp, searing riffs and instantly grabbing chorus - surefire set to be a crowd pleaser.
Speaking of the new music, Laurence Beveridge explains,
“Something Terminal' is a love letter to the band we were, a final acknowledgment of all our quirks and contradiction. We want to take our listeners on a journey, both lyrically and musically, through our history, and eventually our hopes for the future. The title track is expansive, perhaps a little indulgent, but truly in the spirit of what makes Fearless Vampire Killers so special. It’s a showcase of all the styles we’ve amassed over the years; the melodic synths, crushing riffs, the stripped back piano led theatrics”.
Kier Kemp adds,
“'Delicate' is a song about pushing yourself to do great things despite knowing that as people we can be fragile and by pushing that hard you’re putting yourself at risk. It charts our experiences as a young band, only pushing forward regardless of the cost and then later looks at the split and how we nearly lost ourselves to a ‘normal life’. Ultimately though it’s a call to arms, to never let yourself forsake your dreams, to always keep them alive. Even if it’s over decades”.
