Vamps Release New Songs With Contributions From Chris Motionless + Richard Z. Kruspe
Are you ready for new Vamps music? The Japanese rock band featuring Hyde and K.A.Z. are back and they've got a couple of musical friends helping them out. The band just released a pair of new songs that feature contributions from Motionless in White's Chris Motionless and Emigrate / Rammstein guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe.
One song is titled "Inside of Me" and it's a synth-heavy rocker with Motionless lending his vocals to the track as the song delves into the "monster inside of me." There's a video for the song that can be seen in the player above.
The other track is titled "Rise or Die" and it was co-written by Kruspe, the guitarist for Emigrate and Rammstein. It's the more pulse-pounding of the two tracks with a driving beat and a more anthemic chorus.
Both songs were recorded in Los Angeles earlier this year with the assistance of producer Howard Benson. "The recording session with Howard Benson and his team was very creative," Hyde said. "I truly enjoyed writing and recording these new songs.'Inside of Me' contains themes of the forbidden and abstinence.'Rise or Die' is a very catchy rock song that gets the audience pumped up when we play it live. I hope everyone likes these new songs."
You can listen to both songs on Spotify and purchase the tracks via iTunes. And look for Vamps making the trip to the U.S. to support their music. They've booked a string of November dates with support from Citizen Zero. These will be their first U.S. shows since Vamps opened for Sixx: A.M. in the spring of 2015. See the dates below.
