Straining at the seams with eerie majesty and bewitching melodies, the debut album by neo-gothic alt-pop maestros, THE VULTURES, will be released on February 9 2015 on Ciao Ketchup Recordings. ‘Three Mothers Part 1’ will be available on 12” vinyl and all digital download platforms. Arriving in the wake of the band’s acclaimed double-A sided single, ‘Vlad’/‘Cancer’, this sensual, sinister and proudly singular record is an orchestral post-punk masterclass in noirish songcraft.

About The Vultures
The Vultures are an evenly split male/female sextet whose members descended on London from five countries spanning three continents. Comprising three-part vocals, cello, violin, viola, bass and drums, the band bonded over a shared belief that rock’n’roll has become stiflingly dull. The Vultures are anything but, eschewing guitars, synths and digitalism in favour of intense in-the-flesh performance. The group’s darkly gorgeous soundscape is sculpted from a broad range of material, encompassing influences from Bjork to Blondie, Serge Gainsbourg to The Pixies, and resulting in innovative and impassioned alternative songs that are set to contaminate the public consciousness in 2015.
