Axewound got in a few dates this summer, but had to work around the commitments of the various members other bands before finalizing their release details.
Axewound recorded 'Vultures' in Cardiff at the start of the year with Bullet for My Valentine's Martin 'Ginge' Ford engineering the sessions. Tuck recalls, "It was very intense, very demanding, but that's how we wanted it to be. No pre-writing, no rehearsing … just booking a studio and going in and doing a song a day. We wanted to capture something that happened right there and then."
Cormier adds, "The record is great because it's been made by a bunch of friends who are just enjoying themselves playing together and doing something that's different to what they normally do."
Fans will get their first official new release when the single 'Cold' arrives on Sept. 10, coinciding with their U.K. tour.
