Vultures just released a new video for “Acceptance,” a track from their new EP Hunger, out now.
“’Acceptance’ is the second song of our EP, Hunger,” the band says. “This song is about a young boy who gets peer pressured into doing cocaine to be accepted into a group of friends and in return dies from an overdose, and his mom is devastated. Our mission statement in ‘Acceptance’ is to raise awareness, because this is a tragedy that happens everywhere. Hunger is about different perspectives of the people drug abuse affects.”
Vultures conveys an unapologetic and visceral energy through their brand of hardcore. With sonic inspirations that includes the likes of Converge, Dead And Divine, and The Dillinger Escape Plan, the band combines the technicality and bite of metal with the attitude of hardcore punk in order to deliver performances with unrivaled potency and aggression.
Delivering six tracks that put forth an attack of driving riffs and incendiary finger-pointing in just under 20 minutes, Vultures’ second EP, Hunger, was produced, mixed, and mastered by Tim Creviston (Misery Signals, Spiritbox), and fitted with artwork created by Dusty Ray and arranged by Kevin Moore of Soft Surrogate. The EP also includes a guest vocal feature from Larissa Stupar (Venom Prison, Wolf Down).
Vultures will self-release the Hunger EP on CD and all digital platforms this Friday, October 4. Preorder packages are available at the band’s website HERE. Also view the “Push” video HERE and the Claymation “Rat King” video HERE.
In conjunction with the release of Hunger, Vultures supported Cancer Bats and Despised Icon at major gigs followed by a three-week, West Coast, North American tour.
