VAMPS Release BLOODSUCKERS The First Original Album in 4 Years! Promotion in Hong Kong and Taiwan Announced!
While VAMPS keep on expanding their international activities since the release of their worldwide debut album SEX BLOOD ROCK N’ ROLL in September 2013, their 3rd original album will be released in Hong Kong and Taiwan, on October 29th and 31st respectively.
BLOODSUCKERS is the band’s first album in 4 years, whose tracklisting includes the single from last year “AHEAD / REPLAY”, “GET AWAY / THE JOLLY ROGER” which was released in Japan in August and debuted at No. 3 on the weekly Oricon singles chart (dated Sep. 1) and the Japanese version of “VAMPIRE'S LOVE” which is featured in the campaign for the Japanese release of the film Dracula Untold.
Named after what VAMPS call their fans with affection, BLOODSUCKERS displays the band’s sound world that travels internationally and is a strong stimulant in today’s entertainment scene.
VAMPS will visit Hong Kong and Taiwan in November to promote the album, where they will be interacting directly with the fans on Nov. 7th (Hong Kong) and the 27th (Taiwan).
HYDE says, “We have spent a long time on the production of our new album and think we’ve come up with a fantastic piece. It would be great if our fans in Asia would enjoy our latest sounds. We’ll be seeing you soon, so watch out BLOODSUCKERS!”
Keep an eye on VAMPS’ further challenges!
