Hostile Media Inks Deal With The Vicious Head Society

Earlier this year, The Vicious Head Society, the brainchild of Irish guitar virtuoso Graham Keane released the debut album “Abject Tomorrow,” which gained applause the world over. Featuring guests such as keyboardist Derek Sherinan of Alice Cooper, Billy Idol, Yngwie Malmsteen, Kiss, Steve Vai, and Joe Bonamassa fame, fellow Irishman and bass player Pat Byrne, and drum machine Kevin Talley “Abject Tomorrow” tickled the ears of progressive metal fans and those with a taste for all things guitar.

Today, Keane can reveal he has teamed up with Hostile Media to reissue his acclaimed debut on December 15th. The reissue will also include a bonus track “Xylematic Disembowelment.” Keane comments, “When Hostile Media offered me a contract which guarantees huge amounts of cash, fame and at least two limousine rides in exchange for my earthly soul, it was a no brainer! In seriousness, I’m delighted to sign with HM, it presents me with a chance to reach more people with my music. To celebrate, I recorded an out take from the Abject sessions and we just about managed to squeeze it on to the CD. ‘Xylematic Disembowelment’ is a zappa inspired instrumental combined with death metal. I don’t think I need to say any more than that!”

The track list for the album is:

1. The Sycophants
2. Abject Tomorrow
3. Downfall
4. Agenda
5. The 11th Hour
6. Psychedelic Torture Trip
7. Gods Of The New Age
8. Analogue Spectre
9. Xylematic Disembowelment

On June 16th, Igorrr – the brainchild of French musician and eclectic composer Gautier Serre – will release new album, “Savage Sinusoid,” via Metal Blade Records.
