MUSIC NEWS: Fearless Vampire Killers Release Double A-Side ‘Something Terminal’ / ‘Delicate’
Fearless Vampire Killers have released a new double A-side Something Terminal / Delicate, out now via Silent Cult. The release marks the band’s first new music since 2016.
“Something Terminal is a love letter to the band we were, a final acknowledgment of all our quirks and contradiction,” explains Laurence Beveridge. “We want to take our listeners on a journey, both lyrically and musically, through our history, and eventually our hopes for the future. The title track is expansive, perhaps a little indulgent, but truly in the spirit of what makes Fearless Vampire Killers so special. It’s a showcase of all the styles we’ve amassed over the years; the melodic synths, crushing riffs, the stripped back piano led theatrics.”
“Delicate is a song about pushing yourself to do great things despite knowing that as people we can be fragile and by pushing that hard you’re putting yourself at risk,” adds Kier Kemp. “It charts our experiences as a young band, only pushing forward regardless of the cost and then later looks at the split and how we nearly lost ourselves to a ‘normal life’. Ultimately though it’s a call to arms, to never let yourself forsake your dreams, to always keep them alive. Even if it’s over decades.”
