VULTURES New EP Hunger Will Throw You To The Ground
In just six tracks and twenty minutes, Vultures will pulverize you into the ground. Vultures' new EP Hunger was produced, mixed, and mastered by Tim Creviston (Misery Signals, Spiritbox) and was given artwork by Dusty Ray, which was arranged by Kevin Moore of Soft Surrogate. In addition to the stop-and-go obliteration throughout, Hunger also features a guest spot from vocalist Larissa Stupar (Venom Prison, Wolf Down).
Here's what Vultures had to say about the EP.
HUNGER is an album that we have been developing for a long time. More than anything else, it has been a taxing and painstaking process holding onto these tracks for as long as we have, refining them and waiting for the right moment to release them. It is incredibly cathartic for us to finally present something that we have given so much of ourselves to, and we are immensely grateful to all who have involved themselves along the way.
Lyrically, HUNGER is an album that tells the story of substance abuse from a multitude of perspectives. It’s no secret that there is an opioid crisis in the Pacific Northwest, and many of us have been affected or know someone who has been affected as a result of the poor levels of support, control, and safety related to controlled substances. With HUNGER, we want to acknowledge the problems and humanize the struggles that occur every day in homes and on the street, because it’s important now more than ever to be aware of how to keep ourselves and our friends safe, and also to be empathetic and compassionate towards those with circumstances different from our own.
Sonically, HUNGER is a major step forward for us. The songs are more dynamic, energetic, emotional and provocative than anything else we have shown before, and we are extremely proud of what we’re bringing to the table with this record. Producer Tim Creviston went above and beyond in shaping the final incarnation of these tracks, and we are confident that fans old and new will be excited by what we have to show them.
With the release of this new EP, we will be departing on our biggest tour yet, which includes our first ever foray across the border as a band. We consider ourselves very fortunate for the opportunities afforded to us by the bands and promoters that we will be working with along the way, and if you enjoy what you hear in this EP, we hope we’ll see you out at a show.
