2013 WAM Song Of The Year Country category winners (First & Last) Graphic Fiction Heroes return to their rock roots with a brand new digital single Vicious Valentine, scheduled for a January 8th release on iTunes, CD Baby and all good digital outlets.
The band will launch the single at The Astor Lounge, with support from RAGDOLL, NEVSKY PROSPEKT and MIDNIGHT BOULEVARD.
$10 entry to the launch includes a download of Vicious Valentine, which was written by current members Chris Gibbs and Mat Ferguson along with original bassist Gareth Hughes. In an interesting case of circularity, Hughes will also be playing with the band at the launch whilst on a return visit to Perth from his new home in the UK, filling in for current bassist Joe Southwell who is currently contracted to play music internationally and has spent much of 2015 abroad.
Initially recorded by Rob Agostini at Soundbaker (drums) utilising prize money and free recording time from the 2013 WAM win, all other tracking was completed at Gibbs’ home studio Noise-a-thon (guitars, vocals, percussion, keys) along with the bass parts having been completed somewhere off the coast of Iceland in a cruise ship cabin. The final mix was produced at Soundbaker and mastering was completed by Simon Struthers at Forensic Audio.
