Virgil & The Accelerators to release new album

VirgilAccelerators

Virgil & The Accelerators are set to release a brand new studio album “Army Of Three” on Monday 6th October via Mystic Records.  The band will support the release of the album with the single and accompanying promo video “All Night Long”.  The new album dovetails the band’s nationwide UK tour which starts Monday 29th September at London’s  The Borderline.
 
Army Of Three is the band’s second studio album produced by the legendary Chris Tsangarides (Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest).  The new album follows 2011’s critically acclaimed debut album The Radium which claimed a Best Of Year spot in Classic Rock magazine’s year round-up.  The album will be released on 180 gram vinyl, CD and digital download.
 
The band have just posted a new video on YouTube for Blow To The Head - one of the powerhouse guitar-driven tracks from the forthcoming album. Watch it here.
 
VATA bassist Jack Alexander Timmis recalls when everything was cut short just before the LP was completed.  Says Timmis, “Towards the end of production, the album was suddenly put on unexpected hold. Before we returned to the studio to finish the album, Chris Tsangarides was diagnosed with Legionnaires disease. He was in intensive care for 3 months. He was lucky to come out of it alive.”
