Hey Kiddo!

Things are really moving down here in the crypt! (OK fine, it’s just the basement…)

In case you’ve missed it, I’ve got a show coming in just SIX DAYS! If you’re in or around Atlanta (or with a will to travel) you should try to make it out to Vinyl on Monday (June 19th) I’ll be opening for TWRP! If you’ve never heard of them, check them out. They are awesome on more than a few levels. You can get details about the show right here.

It’s gonna be a good show. I’m mixing up the set, playing some stuff from Love Bites, adding in a cover…it’s gonna be a heck of a good time!

But I know what you’re thinking, “Aww, Vlad, I can’t travel all the way to Atlanta on a Monday?!” I know. We really wish you could come visit for the family reunion, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out entirely! Your brother James, over at Echosynthetic, will be live streaming the whole show on Periscope! So be sure to give him a follow and keep your eye on Twitter Monday night so you can join the fun! He even promised me he won’t film vertically this time! EXCITEMENT! Also, ifyou know someone that might be able to make it to the show, please, let them know about the it. It would mean the world to me, and then you’d be known as the person that introduced them to their new favorite music. Imagine how much respect and admiration they’d have for you.

As for non-show news, the next EP is shaping up quite nicely. It’s gonna be a bit different, but I think you’ll enjoy it. Leaning very hard on the soundtrack side of things. It’s gonna be atmospheric, dangerous…but there will be some toe-tapping in there as well, so don’t worry too much. Once I get this show out of the way, I think it’s going to be time to buckle down and start dressing up this EP and shoving it out the door. It’s been too dang long since I made you some new music!

I’m working on new shirts! Square Wave and I are trying to figure out the best way to get nice, summery colors in the VSD style, but for now, we’re looking at some more black Ts with the new logo:

Pretty cool, huh? I’m excited.

Also, don’t forget, end of July will be the big birthday bash, with a sale on EVERYTHING VSD.

Alright, that’s enough babbling from me for now. Hope to see you at the show! If not, hope to see you on the stream! If not, hope to hear from you via a reply to this email. If not, hope to hear from you in a dream conversation!

Hugs and Kisses,
Vlad, your Vampire Step-Dad
