Canadian metallic hardcore outfit VULTURES have released their new single 'Bitter Breath' from their forthcoming EP Hunger, due 4th October. The new track follows the band's weekend performing with Cancer Bats and Despised Icon.

Drummer Graham Scanlon comments: “'Bitter Breath' is Hunger’s resident slow-burner track. We would describe it as pensive, melancholy, and coarse, though like any artistic medium that will be subject to personal interpretation. This track represents a compositional intermission in forgoing the more chaotic sonic elements present within its EP counterparts, instead emphasising a more minimalistic quality of instrumental delivery influenced by acts like Defeater. 'Bitter Breath' was something of a unique songwriting experience for us in terms of how it utilizes reprise and motif, and the track also saw significant compositional input from producer Tim Creviston, who can be credited with really bringing this track to life. We chose this song as our third single as we believe it embodies a musical quality that acts as a strong counterpoint to the existing singles, and demonstrates our approach to a slower and more emotive form of hardcore.”

VULTURES convey an unapologetic and visceral energy through their brand of hardcore. With sonic inspirations that include the likes of ConvergeEvery Time I Die, and The Dillinger Escape Plan, the band combine the technicality and bite of metal with the attitude of hardcore punk in order to deliver performances with unrivalled potency and aggression and no little amount of fun.

VULTURES now prepare to release their second EP Hunger, six tracks that put forth an attack of driving riffs and incendiary finger-pointing in just under twenty minutes. Hunger was produced, mixed, and mastered by Tim Creviston (Misery SignalsSpiritbox), and features Larissa Stupar (Venom Prison) on track five, 'This Hunger'.

Initially playing local DIY house shows as a means of introducing themselves in 2016, VULTURES have since proceeded to support metal heavyweights Enterprise EarthArchspire, '68 and plenty more.

In the wake of this upcoming release, the band will broaden their horizons and make waves worldwide. VULTURES will embark on their largest tour yet in support of the EP, including their first foray into the USA.
