VICIOUS RUMORS Reveal New LineupFriday, 17th January 2014
San Francisco Bay Area metallers VICIOUS RUMORS have revealed the band’s new line up which now consists of singer Nick Holleman, bassist Tilen Hudrap, guitarists Bob Capka and Geoff Thorpe, and drummer Larry Howe.
Vocalist Nick Holleman was hired on the spot after VICIOUS RUMORS leader Geoff Thorpe saw a video on YouTube. Thorpe comments: “I just imagined him singing our songs and it works perfectly. Once we met and the chemistry was right, I realized I found the right guy for the job.” Nick’s performance stunned VICIOUS RUMORS fans old and new during the band’s last tour in the USA.
After a series of auditions, Slovenian native Tilen Hudrap was hired last summer to fill in on tour. Tilen already played two world tours (a total of 50 gigs) with the band and appears in the newest video for the title track off the current album, Electric Punishment.
VICIOUS RUMORS welcomes back Bob Capka, who played on the highly acclaimed Electric Punishment CD and has been on three tours in Europe and the USA.
Upcoming VICIOUS RUMORS tours include European summer festivals, a South America tour in September/October and also Australian/New Zealand shows in 2014. VICIOUS RUMORS will also play the 70000 Tons Of Metal festval cruise this year from January 27 until January 31, playing the “Digital Dictator” album in its entirety for the first time ever.
