Currently hailing from Miami, FL, up and coming Puerto Rican hard rockers and Latin Rock Award nominees MESSAGE TO VENUS are pleased to announce November 27, 2015 as the official release date for their long-awaited full length release, Victims & Villains. The album will be available on iTunes and is being released via 3Thirteen Entertainment/eOne.
Victims & Villains was recorded in the band’s native San Juan, Puerto Rico with producer Leo Alvarez. You can pre-order Victims & Villains now via iTunes. The album features the two previously released singles “Hollow” and “Over and Done“. Check out an album teaser video here, and the “Over and Done” music video below.
The recording and release of Victims & Villains is made possible by MESSAGE TO VENUS’ dedicated fans, which helped the band generate over $11,000 dollars in support. Fans who contributed to the crowd-funding campaign received special bonuses like an advance copy of the album, limited-edition MESSAGE TO VENUS comic books, and more.
Vocalist/guitarist Jandre Nadal states, “This would not be possible if it wasn’t for all the support we received through our last Indiegogo campaign! If it wasn’t for our fans, friends and families that supported us, this album would still be in the studio. People have no idea how expensive it is to release an album nowadays. We are grateful for all the support and very proud of what we accomplished with this new album.”
Victims & Villains acts as follow up to the band’s previously released album The Envelope (2011), which, along with lead single “Universal You”, was acclaimed by established artists such as Godsmack and Halestorm. The album also received weekly spins at SiriusXM Octane, MusicChoice and more. You can listen to The Envelope now via Spotify.
MESSAGE TO VENUS is currently planning tour dates for 2016 – stay tuned!
