Press Release: VAMPS Recruiting Official Street Team for New York Concert and USA Tour

VAMPS, the Japanese rock band formed by HYDE (L’Arc~en~Ciel) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust), is recruiting Official Street Team Members to support the rock band’s headlining show at New York City’s Best Buy Theater on May 1. Volunteers are also needed in cities across America as VAMPS tours with SIXX:AM this spring.

Tickets for the New York show are on sale now at AXS.com.

Street Team Volunteers will help distribute official VAMPS promotion materials to raise awareness for VAMPS TOUR 2015 and earn special prizes. Deadline for street team applications is March 29, 2015.

VAMPS returns to New York City after previous appearances in 2009 (at the Fillmore), 2010 and 2013 (at Roseland Ballroom) and HYDE’s concert with L’Arc~en~Ciel as the first headlining Japanese band at Madison Square Garden in 2012.

Says HYDE, who launched VAMPS with K.A.Z in 2008: “BLOODSUCKERS is a record that we spent almost one year putting together. For me, this is the best work we’ve done so far, and we would love to tour around the world with these songs…”

VAMPS BLOODSUCKERS – International Edition is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon.
