On March 22nd 2019, Italian glam-rockers VAIN VIPERS released their acclaimed self-titled debut album via Volcano Records. Today the band teams up with Metal Shock Finland to premiere worldwide their new video ‘Let’s Party’ from the album. Watch it here:
To celebrate the video premiering Metal Shock Finland‘s Tarja Virmakari had a pleasure to interview the guys, so let’s learn more about the band, video and their debut album:
1. Hi VAIN VIPERS, and welcome to Metal Shock Finland. Your self-titled debut album came out a year ago, via Volcano Records, how it has been received among your fans?
This is our first album. We had excellent feedback from local and non-local fans, much more than our expectations. We have sold several CDs in Italy and Europe and even in Japan, America and Australia.
2. What can you tell me about the influences and topics of your songs?
Our songs topics are the classic themes of the genre. The influences comes from the music we have listened since our childhood, combined with a modern touch.
3. How have you supported the album in this past year?
We have self-produced some videos for the singles of the disc and tried to play as much as possible despite, currently, the music scene in Italy is not the best.
4. Today we have a pleasure to premiere worldwide your new video ‘Let’s Party’ from the album. What is the story behind the song and video?
In the video you can see exactly what can happen at one of our gig… and that’s what always happens every time we go out together… which is the fourth essence of the “Let’s Party” and our way of being. This time we choose to pay tribute to our fans with a video dedicated to them, getting out of the habit of having a plot-based video.
5. What will happen next in the VAIN VIPERS -camp? Future plans?
We are composing new songs and we hope to come out soon with a new album. We are also looking for new gigs to continue promoting the album.
6. And now the word is yours: what is your message to your fans and Metal Shock Finland readers?
We want to thank them for all the support they have shown us and that continue to show us. To the Metal Shock Finland readers, we invite them to go on youtube and find our videos or on Spotify / Itunes to listen to our album. Come and join us to the Party!!!
VAIN VIPERS are an Italian glam-rock band, they were formed in 2013 by Scott and Wild (ex Cryin’ Angels). In the spring of 2016, after several lineup changes, they finally found their current singer: Mick (ex Sex for Cash and Shabby Trick, currently in Crying Steel) and in early 2017, their drummer, Aaron. From there, they began appearing in many italian clubs, sharing the stage with the famous rock bands Bai Bang, Rakel Traxx, and Stop Stop. In May 2017, the single “Lost in Your Eyes,” was finally released, and with it their first music video. At the dawn of 2018 it was time to start on their first LP, recorded entirely at Roberto Priori’s Pri-Studio. At the end of that same year, they found in Volcano Records the thing they’ve been looking for: A label, an agreement, and an album release.
