FVK announce debut headline European tour
My daughter introduced me to FVK (or Fearless Vampire Killers as was) and having seen them live a couple of years ago a band well worth seeing live. Their recent EP ‘Bruises’ sees them move away from their steampunk look and have a slightly more commercial edge. They never seem to stop touring…
FVK TO EMBARK ON FIRST EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR IN MAY 2016
As one European tour comes to a halt, FVK (formerly Fearless Vampire Killers), eager to return, are ecstatic to announce their first European headline run for May. Routing through France, Germany, Denmark, Poland and The Netherlands, this will be the bands fourth stint in Europe over the last year – previous tours include support to In This Moment, Black Veil Brides and Annisokay, alongside their current run with Escape The Fate. An unstoppable live force, it’s only a matter of time until FVK is a household name for European rock fans.
“It’s almost a year to the day that we first toured mainland Europe and to think we’re now at a point that we can headline is amazing. I can’t wait to give our new friends out there a full show. We do things quite differently when headlining – we try to make the show more of diverse and memorable. See you all soon!” – Kier Kemp, co-vocals

Following last year’s success of the aforementioned European tours, a UK headline run and a slot on Download Festival’s second stage, alongside the release of mini-album BRUISES in October which charted at #14 in the UK Rock Album Chart, FVK have gone from strength to strength. And they are showing no sign of slowing down with an upcoming UK headline run in March, and further huge announcements.
Whilst BRUISES saw FVK transition away from the Grandomina concept on previous albums Unbreakable Hearts and Militia of the Lost, the band continue to embrace creativity with co-singer Laurence Beveridge’s novels – recently releasing the third book in his series, Unbreakable Hearts. The band also have their own comic book The Vigilante in the works, and online community The Obsidian Bond continues to grow from strength to strength.
FVK are a rarity that goes beyond the music. They’re unafraid to be different, to have identity, fast emerging as pioneers for a new and exciting generation of rock fans.
