If the photo above doesn’t make you want to hang out with Wampire, I don’t know what will. Not, as you might think, a Twilight-themed Wham! tribute band, the ‘Pire are Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps from Portland. Their debut album ‘Curiosity’, produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra bassist Jacob Portrait, will come out in May. “It’s sexy, sounds huge, and by all means should be blamed for future babies,” says Tinder about one of the album tracks, ‘Trains’. We’re delighted to premiere their cover of Kraftwerk’s ‘The Model’. It swaps guitars for synths at times but stays faithful to the original. If you like what you hear, check out the single ‘The Hearse’ below.
It’s out on March 5 but you can pre-order it now.
