“Tiro” album release and Australia 2013 Tour dates

by Jeremy Rose on 17 September 2013

The Vampires fourth studio album – “Tiro” out October 6 2013 on Earshift Music

The band’s saxophonist/composer Jeremy Rose describes the new album as “taking a new direction for the group.” “This album casts a wide net of influences but particularly draws from my recent travels and musical studies in Greece and Cuba. The album was also influenced by Nick Garbett’s travels to the Pacific island of Palau and Colombia, and Alex Boneham’s sojourn in Rome over the past year. These diverse musical ‘postcards’ come together conceptually well.” The album also features a debut for Jeremy on tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone and clarinet, as well as Alex Masso’s work on cajon and additional percussion. The album also features two remixes by former George bass player turned producer Paul ‘Tanuki’ Bromley.
