The new single from Aussie prog-rockers Me is available for download now. The single is taken from debut album 'Even The Odd Ones Out', which is released on Lizard King Records/Essential on 25th February 2013.
ME are Luke Ferris (vocals, guitar, piano), Damian Tapley (lead guitar), Michael Godde (bass) and Spike Rogers (drums). The band spent most of 2012 touring the UK with the likes of Panic! At The Disco, Kasabian and Twin Atlantic, inbetween numerous festival slots. They have just appeared on the main stage at the Big Day Out 2013 festival back in their homeland Australia and return to Europe in March for their first headline tour.
'Vampire!! Vampire!!' is a glam-rock tinged, three minute head rush of a song and is the perfect introduction to the forthcoming debut album. But is it actually about vampires? "No!" says Luke. "It's about the blood sucking creeps who run those reality, X-Factor type TV shows. I can't stand the whole system. Do yourself a favour, turn the television off, read a book or go support local live music".
The video portrays a blood-thirsty record executive superbly played by Mark Lee, legendary in Australia for his role alongside Mel Gibson in the Peter Weir film Gallipoli.
