Australian powercore metal pioneers A BREACH OF SILENCE have just premiered their new music video for a very special acoustic version of the song Vultures. The video features footage of the band shot while on tour, and memorable moments of the band hanging out with fans before and after the shows. The video may be watched at the Eclipse Records YouTube channel.
“The acoustic version of Vultures is something we have been wanting to record for quite some time now. We really wanted to do something special for our fans to show what they mean to us” states guitarist Mat Cosgrove. “We believe the feel and emotion of this acoustic version really brings that to the table.” Lead vocalist Rhys Flannery continues, “As musicians, we want people to see that we’re not just another metal band. This acoustic version of Vultures shows people that we can do things differently, think out of the box, and show another side of the band which people didn’t previously know existed.”
The Vultures single contains the new acoustic version, original album version, and an instrumental (karaoke) version as well. It was released worldwide on August 14, and is available for download via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, eMusic, and streaming on Spotify, Rdio, and YouTube.
A Breach of Silence recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to help get the band back to North America for another run of 30+ tour dates. The campaign, available online at: http://igg.me/at/abos-tour, offers several unique perks, including a FREE Vultures digital booklet, autographed merch, poker night & bbq with the band, signed guitars, and more. Money raised during the campaign will assist bringing the band back to North America for their second U.S. tour.
Their highly-praised sophomore album The Darkest Road was released on October 7 by Eclipse Records, and named “One of the Top 25 albums of 2014” by Hysteria Magazine. It also debuted at #1 on the iTunes Metal Chart (Australia), and at #20 on Australia’s Purely Independent Chart. The Darkest Road is available for download from iTunes, and GooglePlay, while CDs are available via Eclipse Records, BestBuy, Fye, JB Hifi, and Amazon. The band has toured with Drowning Pool, Born of Osiris, Adept, and many others.
