One of the most exciting projects from this year is the new music by Michael Vampire, widely known for his work as frontman in Vampires Everywhere. Michael announced his new band, The Killing Lights and they were quickly well received by the music scene, both by Vampires Everywhere fans and many other new fans. Their music which is filled with powerful vocals and big melodies,has them definitely bringing a fresh new style to the rock and metal scene.

The Killing Lights have recorded a self-produced, self-titled five-song EP which is to be released soon.  They will play their first show on September 20th at the Sunset Music Festival in L.A. About the SSMF, Michael says, We always seem to debut something right out the gate that we think will be big enough to showcase what we are trying to do, and I think that the Sunset Strip Music Festival is definitely that one. We are excited about it for sure. The people at the Whisky have always been a fan of Vampires,and of myself..they really believe in what we do so I am excited to be playing there.”  

They will then be playing their first headline show on October 4th in Anaheim at the Chain Reaction, then plan to tour constantly through the end of the year with an eye on releasing a full-length album in 2015. Just announced for both the Whisky a Go Go Show and the Chain Reaction show, is that Doc Coyle of God Forbid fame will be joining them on guitar. Here’s what Doc said: Since my departure from God Forbid, I have been approached by numerous bands about joining or playing. But I can’t play with someone if I’m not feeling it. The Killing Lights music struck me with it’s deft balance between classic heavy metal riffing and hard rock nuance. The detailed and infectious songwriting this band achieved really grabbed me in addition to their dynamic approach. To say I am excited to perform with The Killing Lights would be an understatement.”

We had the opportunity to chat with Michael about this new music chapter in his life, the music industry, his connection to New Found Glory and many more great things. We are pleased to bring it to you here:

The Killing Lights released a new video for Lies Spread Like Fire that is awesome.  “I am beyond excited to finally release the ‘Lies Spread Like Fire’ video,” said Michael. “We all fight our own demons from time to time, and this is about standing up after the fight. We wanted to keep it as raw as possible, which I feel we achieved using L.A. street culture as the main storyline and aesthetic. This video is for all the fans and people that have stuck with me this past year. Together we will change everything.”

Check out the new video, Lies Spread Like Fire

Make sure to check them out at their upcoming shows and we look forward to a tour soon. We will continue to keep updated on future The Killing Lights news but also make sure and follow/like them on their social media sites.
