NEW YORK, NY, April 7, 2017— Japanese rock band VAMPS—featuring HYDE (L’Arc-en-Ciel) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust)—premiere the official music video for their new single “Calling” exclusively on Loudwire. Filmed in an old, abandoned building in Downtown Los Angeles with award-winning director Nick Peterson (Five Finger Death Punch “Wrong Side Of Heaven”), the video portrays the polarized sides of an impassioned relationship. Watch the video HERE. Purchase or stream “Calling” via Apple, Spotify, Google, and Amazon.
“The video follows the intertwined stories of two people: a guy who’s infatuated with and holding on to this idealistic version of his lover…which is not really who she is though. And the woman ultimately breaking free from his confines.” –HYDE, VAMPS
“Calling” is the new single off VAMPS’ highly anticipated, forthcoming album Underworld, out April 28 on Eleven Seven Music. Produced by Howard Benson (Halestorm, Papa Roach, Motörhead) and Kane Churko (In This Moment, Five Finger Death Punch), the album includes the band’s biggest streaming success to date, “Inside of Me,” featuring Chris Motionless from Motionless In White. Also included on the album is “Rise Or Die,” a collaboration with Emigrate/Rammstein guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe.
Upon the release of Underworld, VAMPS will embark on their spring U.S. tour, kicking off May 2 in Birmingham, Alabama. The tour includes dates with I Prevail and Starset, as well as a string of headline dates with support from newcomers Palaye Royale (www.palayeroyale.com) and Darke Complex (http://darkecomplex.com).
