UK rockers Fearless Vampire Killers revealed this week that they will be giving fans a special advance listen to their new studio album via their new social media network, "The Obsidian Bond".
The new album was completed earlier this month and this week the band announced that they will be launching the new social media network on July 17th, 2014. We were sent over these details:
Combining aspects of profile based sites such as Facebook and Feed based sites such as Twitter, fans of FVK will be able to interact with each other real-time, earning a series of achievements as they go. The band will also be streaming their second album track by track, exclusively to members of the service.
Singer Kier Kemp had this to say, "We're super excited about this release... I mean this kind of thing has never been done to the extent we're about to do it, apart from maybe "Insane Clown Posse" but ours is certainly more modern! This is for the fans of our band that need to know everything... and believe me when I say I don't think a stone has been left unturned!"
Lead Guitarist Barroné adds, "I don't actually think I've slept since we had this idea... I'm not even a developer but I've had to take a crash course! I think we're all really proud with what we've come up with though".
Fearless Vampire Killers will also be playing the Main Stage at new UK Festival Alt-Fest this summer, along with Amen and Marilyn Manson. Visit the band's website for more details here.
