advance mix of the title track to the upcoming VBB album
The gates are open and the GAME begins ...
So the time has begun for things to get a little more complex! Imagine that the VBB, as a band, was a front for a bunch of vampires (and other para-dimesionals) to travel around the globe (undetected by the powers that be) in search of gateways to another dimension. Imagine that this ragged band of misfits FINALLY GOT THROUGH!
This is where the VBB story opens a new chapter, and “The Baron Marcus Project” (as named after a joint CIA-Vatican paranormal investigation file) begins...

Fresh from the Grave...
Hello fans and friends – so much has happened in studio and band life throughout the past year that it will take a bit of time to catch up with you all. But let us start by saying that there are some of the most exciting tracks cut to date dying to escape the VBB vaults – and break free they will with not one but two exciting releases scheduled for 2010. Stay tuned – more details soon!

ALIVE!! On the battlefield (battle-stage) again - and loving it...
We have the privilege to be playing with Theo and the Skyscrapers form NYC next week at the legendary El Mocambo in Toronto.
Theo was lead vox for one of the hardest working bands in the biz called The Lunachicks - they gigged hells half acre (and hit the Warped tour twice over)!! Her new band Theo and the Skyscrapers is a mind-blowing blend of Banshees-like dark wave and pure hot Glam. Glam-Noir (my fave) plain and simple. Absolutely not to be missed.
The El Mocambo (in Toronto Canada) opened it's doors as a tavern in 1850. Just after WW II it became known as an infamous ballroom dancehall. Since then, here are a few of the personalities who performed there:
Marilyn Monroe (1958)
SO - of course it is the proper place for a few ol' ethereal
vamps like us to haunt don't you think? Let's rock...
Angels, demons and all friends alike, we are pleased to announce...

BACK FROM THE UNDERWORLD...
Well, hitching a ride back with Persephone we made our return to the land of the living – shiny new album master files in our undead clutches – yes yes, the new album “DEATH AND THE DANCEFLOOR” is finished.The next step is to simply let those tunes loose far and wide across this big bad world. Hang around for details…

VBB music on TV series THE BEST YEARS...
The music business is so strange – it seems that you work at it so long and hard with very little recognition or reward, to a point (for us, 10 years later!) that you forget that there ever might be recognition or reward, then, of course, it all comes together. You fans have made it all such a rewarding experience lately. Around the world every one of you fans has made a big difference for us – your encouragement and involvement has helped us keep the faith.
The latest in VBB news is that Instinct Entertainment has set us up with the TV series THE BEST YEARS – they are using some of our music in their Halloween episode (to be aired later this year throughout North America).
Preparations continue for the release of our new album in April – stand by for more news on that soon!

There is something BIG happening...
There is a magic coming to life in the glam-noir scene. Fashion, music, events and characters about town are at a new level of inspiration. From Manhattan US to London UK (all of which the Vampire Beach Babes had their solid share of last year) there is something big happening.
I believe that we are entering a new pop era – of mythic proportions. The dice are rolling, friends. I think there is some great music to come in 2007!

Home Again Home Again...
you everyone for your support! What an awesome tour - with all the rock-star
high points and road-dog low points accounted, the tour was a resounding
success. Thank you to Ground Sphere in Allegan, High Five in Columbus, Garfield
Artworks in Pittsburgh, The Penny Arcade in Rochester, Bottom's Up in Queens and
the Conduit in Trenton - thank you all for hosting us on our journey. A special
thanks to the awesome fans in Pittsburgh who bought up all of our t-shirts (in
one night) - you are a town that knows how to party! It was a great privilege to
meet so many fans and supporters in the USA, we really look forward to visiting
many of you again soon.

Getting ready for the road...
all the gear and arrangements as we move toward hitting the road again. Being on
the road is as much a spirit journey as it is a physical one. It is the ultimate
frontier of music – and has been since time eternal. Our upcoming schedule is a
demanding one - and it ain’t an easy path we choose, but I look forward to
meeting many of you who have given us support for so long. Above all it is a
chance to say ‘thank you’ face to face!Baron MarcusPrima VoxVampire Beach Babes

On the warpath again...
Our recent show at Club Absinthe in Hamilton was the first time the new material was played in public – and judging by the reaction, we’ll be playing a lot more. As much as we love the studio, it is great to get out on the road and bring it all to life. Keep checking in here at the VBB site – new show listings will be posted as soon as details are available.

Morbid Outlook interview
Morbid Outlook Magazine out of New York has always been one of my very
favourite ‘zines in the scene – so it was an absolute pleasure when the
wonderful Mistress McCutchan asked us to answer some
interview questions for their current edition. Their interview format is
innovative and entertaining in that they ask the same set of questions to the
various featured bands. In this way you get a glimpse of how the band thinks (a
little scary in our case), but also you get a feel for how different bands in
the scene compare and contrast in their humour and taste. I highly recommend
taking a peak at the various interviews, particularly
Alien Sex Fiend and
