We have entered the month of April which is very exciting for us! Not only is every day a reminder that the summer sun is on it's way, putting a spring in everyone's step, but also our 2nd album ‘Sugar Fix' will be released in the next few days!
All lucky Netherlanders get to hear it first on 15th April! In order to hit as hard as possible with the new album, Unique Records will be releasing it on June 10th 2011 everywhere else. So, if you do not live in the Netherlands, please accept our apologies for making you wait just a tiny bit more. However, we promise you, it is worth it.
You can of course pre-order the album at a few places online, just click here to do so!
Many of you will already know, from following us on facebook and twitter that we have been busy filming a new music video for the first single from the album, called ‘Capsize'!
Leading with a strong command from the drums and hand claps, Capsize takes you back to the days when wild dancing and big hair do's were commonly accompanied by high energy horn lines and surf guitar. This record doesn't hide behind anything, quite the contrary, it is raw, wide open and a new kind of old-fashioned fun!
We've been working on it since February, and we can't wait for you to see it! Tricky Art productions will be providing the finishing touches by the end of this week and we plan the single release campaign to fire up with these new visuals! Keep an eye on our online forums for more details over the next few days, you can't miss it, you won't miss it, we promise to be very loud about it!
It was a busy week last week for us as we prepared for the Netherland release. We did some brilliant shows in Holland such as Radio Rijnmond, much loved Giel Beelen on 3fm (ouch this was an early one, but we brought the force! POW! Click here to see.), internet magazine FaceCulture and then finally we put on a fierce show for the well respected Mijke's Middag show on Radio 6! It was a great couple of days in Holland promoting the album, and we are already getting some rave reviews! Laura returned home to perform a couple of the new songs at the legendary Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club in London and again was met with a whooping, fully applauding crowd! We couldn't wish for more with this new material, and we do hope it hits the mark for you!
Already we are receiving invites to perform in Switzerland, Netherlands, France and Germany... If you know a promoter/venue in your country who would like to book Laura Vane & The Vipertones, be a love and put them in touch! We're working on reaching the world, we just need a little help J

A little note to the world ‘Get ready, we're hungry!'.
Uploaded a new song, recorded it a few weeks ago. It's a tribute to the folks way back down the musical line.
It was improvised and inspired by the prison chain gang songs which were recorded by great Mr. Alan Lomax
and his father. Since my life is not blue as it was years ago, and my sweet love Elisabeth is always there
to remind me of the good life, the lyrics ain't about the hardship the workers in that age and environment had to endure. This song is about every beginning of my week days, makin' some coffee for my lady before she awakes,, just plain and simple.
It is called Sweet Coffee.
Hope you'll like it.
Thanks to all who have been a fan and supported us but unfortunatetly we have decided to split and go our seperate ways. As a thankyou to you all we have put all our tracks up for download and added a few new tracks that weren't quite finished but we enjoyed making them.
Nothing Ultra in search of drummer
Due to personal reasons our drummer has left the band. So this leaves us in an unfortunate position: looking for someone to fill this spot. If you feel you are talented, motivated and interested, or if you know someone like that, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
