[News] Vulture Industries to stream 20th anniversary concert

Well known for their wide appeal and their entertainingly theatrical, and hugely accessible stage antics, Vulture Industries recently celebrated their 20 years of existence with a special anniversary show in Bergen, Norway!

Knowing that only a relative handful of their fans would be able to witness the show first-hand, the band made sure that their many fans world-wide would not miss out on this very special occasion by recording the whole event.

Therefore, the full show will be streamed in three separate segments, the first being on the 26th May at 20:00 CEST, and can be watched on the band’s YouTube channel HERE. The band will be present in the live chat during this event.

Parts 2 and 3 of the show will be shown at 20:00 CEST on the 03 June and 10 June respectively.

Vulture Industries comment: “We look forward to presenting the show to our friends and fans that could not come join us in the flesh in Bergen. The show was done with an extended line up, and you are in for a treat! We will be joining in the youtube chat and look forward to talking to you.

Produced by Jarle Jovda Moe, who also made the “New Lords of Light” video, and featuring a multi camera and multi track production, the show included not only favourites from the band’s previous releases, but also tracks from the upcoming fifth full-length studio album “Ghosts from the Past.” It is, in other words the perfect opportunity for fans old and new to take stock of how far the band  has come over the years and reminisce about the past.

Vulture Industries have previously unveiled the cover artwork, which was created by Kim Holm, and further album details of their upcoming album “Ghosts from the past.”

Don’t wake me up please!
Tomorrow is too soon.
Don’t flick the light switch!
Outside is too cruel.
I want to stay right here in the dark!

Ghosts from the past” draws a line from childhood spells of dark mystery and a sympathy for the outcast, to a present where monsters hide under your bed. Waiting, not to prey upon the sleeper, but to hide from the monstrosity of the day. Pulling on a wide range of influences; From dust riddled Spaghetti Westerns accompanied by Ennio Morricone, past the monochrome melancholia of apocalyptic Post-Punk, through deep valleys and steep hills shrouded in progressive darkness and a Nordic noir looking to solve the unexplained murder of the truth. Landing on something once described by a fan as “This is how Nick Cave would sound like if he made metal.”, Vulture Industries has long since established itself as something singular, yet once familiar, strangely recognisable.

Written and recorded in a period of big changes both in their personal lives and in the world around us, “Ghosts from the past” is somehow a mirror of this. It reflects fear of a world spinning out of control, and a sense of powerlessness in the face of a world order falling apart. Crumbling only to be replaced by old ideas fronted by autocratic warlords with no sight in mind but their own power and legacy.

With a writing and production period starting in 2018 and ending in 2022, the process was their longest haul to date, and for a long time they felt lost and struggling to find a sense of direction. Now, having finished the mix and mastering some months ago, it is with great relief having some distance to the process, that Vulture Industries can state “Ghosts from the past” is their strongest album to date and hope you enjoy what is essentially a piece of their soul.
