The Fearless Vampire Killers – Batmania National Album Tour – March 2012

The Fearless Vampire Killers
Announce New Single and Batmania National Album Tour

I Won’t Stay Too Long is the next single from The Fearless Vampire Killers impressive debut LP, Batmania. This barefaced song encompasses the vibe of the 70’s as much as it does the sound. The retro surf-rock tune is “essentially about one night stands; being young and having flings with people just for the sake of it and in the end nothing really matters because we’re in our youth and we have all the time in the world to destroy relationships and start new ones. It’s the mentality of thinking you’re invincible really.”

Staying true to the sound that we have come to know and love, I Won’t Stay too Long is layered with musical texture that barrels through to a powerful finish and reinforces the claims that TFVK are “one of Australia’s greatest hidden gems”.

2012 has kicked off at a cracking pace for the band. With For You & Me recently on the American TV series 90210, TFVK are beginning to make a name for themselves internationally.

The Fearless Vampire Killers will be hitting the road in March with what J Mag have dubbed a “Brilliant Monster”. Batmania explodes lives, so be sure to catch them on any (or all) of the dates below.

Album Reviews

“Find the next party these lads crash to see them in their element.” – TRIPLE J MAGAZINE

“What makes The Fearless Vampire Killers more than just tasteful recyclers, however, is not just their animal energy and ruffled charm but the inherent worth of their tunes. The songs are as strong as their influences, which is saying quite a lot.” – MESS+NOISE

“Their drugged-out take on surf-garage rock is lively and entertaining” – 3.5 Stars ROLLING STONE

Live reviews
“Serving up their psychedelic rock, The Fearless Vampire Killer’s lead vocalist Sean Ainsworth was able tosmash down the barrier between band and punter with his engaging presence.” – TONE DEAF

“The quartet rock a big sound and make full use of every opportunity to harmonise and unleash
sweeping guitar solos.” – RAVE MAGAZINE
