Alien Vampires get own custom guitar made by Vampire Guitars + US/MX tour
The LA-based company Vampire Guitars will build a 7 strings guitar called 'Harshlizer' in 2011 based on the work of hard electro act Alien Vampires. The guitar will be built in the 'Anti Social' guitar series in two versions: the 'Fuck Off and Die' guitar and the 'Anti Christ' guitar (see pictures after the jump). Alien Vampires is the first electro act getting this treatment. Usually geared toward the hard rock/metal genre; Vampire Guitars make special custom guitars for live metal, hard playing, rock bands. Their guitars are all special models whether made for rhythm or lead.
In the past Vampire Guitars did guitars for Rose Tattoo and Ugly Kid Joe but it's the first time the company decided to check on dark electro acts.
In April 2011 Alien Vampires will go on a USA-Mexico tour stopping in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Tijuana, Mexico D.F., Guadalajara, Leon and Puebla. The band has just released the Japanese version of their "Harshlizer" album which is getting quite some attention from in and outside the industrial scene. The 6-pannel digipak edition includes some 15 exclusive and previously unreleased remixes by acts like SAM, Cedigest, C-Lekktor, Xperiment, Preemptive Strike 0.1, Detroit Diesel, Reaxion Guerilla, ESC, Menschdefekt, etc. As could be expected from the band, also this version holds x-rated artwork featuring fetish models resulting in the European cover being banned by several magazines. You can order this album at the Alfa Matrix webstore.
