The Fearless Vampire Killers are a surf / western rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Not only known for throwing killer house parties, They've also toured with Kasabian, The Hives, Mars Volta and The Sonics. Their debut LP was produced by Lars Stalfors was and released last year to great reviews.


It’s been one hell of a ride for Melbourne’s blues-soaked garage rockers, The Fearless Vampire Killers. Forming as a bi-product of high school friendships, the band are making a name for themselves with an unhinged live show that draws comparisons to the likes of Dick Dale through to The Libertines.

With an explosive live set, its no surprise that The Fearless Vampire Killers have been hand picked to play with the likes of The Mars Volta, Kasabian, The Hives and The Sonics.

Their appreciation of their fan base, has seen them throw a number of pumping house party gigs for their single and video launches. Flowing with oceans of booze and hours of debauchery, these nights and the stories that result, are modern day Melbourne urban legends.

2011 marked the release of the band’s long awaited debut LP, Batmania. An album drenched in swooning harmonies and surf rock riffs, has maintained enough pop sensibilities to ensure the first two singles, ‘For You & Me’ and ‘Tell Me What You’re Trying To Say’ became favourites on playlists of alternative radio around the country.

2012 has kicked off at a cracking pace for the band coinciding with their first national headline tour. For You & Me recently placed on the American TV series 90210 and One Day At A Time in the upcoming Liam Hemsworth Movie; Love & Honor. 'TFVK are beginning to make a name for themselves internationally.

Among all this, The Fearless Vampire Killers have found time to begin working on their second album. Mexico is the first single from their forthcoming album; It's an upbeat western-rock ditty documenting the neglected desire of a fading man to travel to his childhood dreamland of Mexico.
