It’s been one hell of a ride for Melbourne’s blues-soaked garage rockers, The Fearless Vampire Killers. Forming as a by-product of high school friendships, the band are making a name for themselves with an unhinged live show that draws comparisons to the likes of Dick Dale through to The Libertines.
With an explosive live set, its no surprise that The Fearless Vampire Killers have been hand picked to play with the likes of The Mars Volta, Kasabian and The Hives.
Their appreciation of their fan base, has seen them throw a number of pumping house party gigs for their single and video launches. Flowing with oceans of booze and hours of debauchery, these nights and the stories that result, are modern day Melbourne urban legends.
October 2011 marked the release of the band’s long awaited debut LP, Batmania. An album drenched in swooning harmonies and surf rock riffs, has maintained enough pop sensibilities to ensure the first two singles, ‘For You & Me’ and ‘Tell Me What You’re Trying To Say’ became favourites on playlists of alternative radio around the country.
