Vega are to release their seventh album Anarchy And Unity, on 17 September via Frontiers Music, with the single Sooner Or Later released today and an autumn UK tour set for this autumn.
The album is the first release with new members, former Inglorious guitarist Billy Taylor and drummer Pete Newdeck (Nitrate, Midnite City).
“As usual, the songs began with myself, Tom, and James writing and recording,” vocalist Nick Workman told MetalTalk. “Then Billy and Pete came along, and for the first time, we had everyone in the band getting involved in the songwriting. The songs we had initially written were still there, but now with a steroid injection and production touches that just took them to new levels.
“Everyone had such a vital part to play on this album, which is why the songs are all credited as written, performed and produced by the six of us.
“As always, we had no agenda when writing and just wrote as and when the moment took us. However, we wanted the album to have a really solid, in your face sound that you can feel pumping in your chest.”
Sooner Or Later is the first single, which you can watch below.
Workman said the song is “a three minute slap in the face. We wanted to write a song that was pretty much flat out from start to finish. It’s a fun take on fake people who live their life in smoke and mirrors, but also about the fact that at some point in life, we all have to go through some bad shit to get to the good stuff.”
