The Vampires’ Australia Tour

by Jeremy on February 8, 2018

The Vampires National Tour

The Vampires are touring Australia this March and will be reunited with our bassist Alex Boneham, who has been living in Los Angeles for the past few years. Check out the tour dates below.

In case you missed it, ‘The Vampires Meet Lionel Loueke’ was short-listed for this year’s Australian Music Prize, the first instrumental album to be on the list in its 13 year history.The AMP Chairman and lead singer of the Hoodoo Gurus, David Faulkner wrote in a recent review in the Saturday Paper: 

“One of my favourite albums of the year was a jazz recording… Its beautifully constructed melody sounded so classic, so perfect, that it had already become deeply ingrained in my memory. Of course, I have been listening to this album a lot. This one’s a real winner.”

The winner of the AMP will be announced on Friday 9th March

The album was also in Ken Weiss’ top 10 listings for 2017 in Cadence Magazine, and #1 on Fred Kunzmann’s top 10 list for 2017 in All About Jazz.

The album, along with the other Vampires catalogue and songbooks, can be purchased here.
