Fearless Vampire Killers – The Blood Never Dries

Named after the film by Roman Polanski, Fearless Vampire Killers take many of their influences from the culture of their youth. Growing up together in Waveny Valley they shared the same misfit experiences that lead them – and countless peers of their generation – to escape the reality of their adolescence and retreat into the sanctuary of graphic novels, music and film. Unsurprisingly, punk rock has been a major factor in the band’s musical heritage but the effect of their environment has also lead them to embrace their pop sensibilities which see Fearless Vampire Killers marry gentle melodic breakdowns to raw, overdriven grind.

A soundtrack of American post-hardcore and US influence from acts like Protest The Hero, Panic at the Disco, Weezer and – clearly notable in their dynamic vocal harmonies – The Beach Boys combine with eclectic British sounds from Adam and the Ants, Queen and Muse, to create the palette from which Fearless Vampire Killers craft their sound. Their second EP, The Blood Never Dries, is testament to this mêlée of influences. Mixed at Outhouse studios by James Billinge and John Mitchell (Enter Shikari; Your Demise; Funeral for a Friend) the EP will be released digitally on August 22nd 2011.

Accompanying the release of The Blood Never Dries is a free e-book written for fans by vocalist Laurence Beveridge. The novelette “Ruple & Evelyn” expands on the fantasy world narrated in the lyrics of the EP and offers readers an opportunity to further understand the world of Fearless Vampire Killers.
