About

Greetings, friends - after careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the Vicious Rumors Kickstarter campaign. The band has secured independent funding for this project, and the DVD will be available to fans in approx. 1 year...as planned. Thanks to everyone who supported us, look for your names in the "thank you" acknowledgements of the DVD when released.

           _____________________________________________

There's very, very few (or perhaps even, zero) heavy metal fans who do not know of Vicious Rumors' place in heavy metal history. 1985's "Soldiers Of The Night" (with Vinnie Moore), and the follow-up "Digital Dictator" (with Carl Albert and Mark McGee) galvanized Geoff Thorpe and company's status amongst metal fans...and to this very day, the band has been on an upwards trajectory ever since.

 Flash forward to December 2014: a historic event in the Vicious Rumors metal odyssey gets underway - their first ever series of shows in South America. While the fans in South America are already lining up for the arrival of VR...the band wants to share the experience with you and every other VR fan around the world... by capturing the shows for a DVD release commemorating the events.

And if this tour and DVD is not enough for fans - here's the "kicker": with your participation, it can mark an amazing milestone for any metal band - their 4th live release on 4 different continents.

The Vicious Rumors Kickstarter project is designed to fund the filming, editing, post production and worldwide distribution of the band's 3rd entry in their history-making trilogy of live metal, the "Live You To Death III - Brazilian Brutality" DVD.

For as little as $10, Vicious Rumors fans will have the chance to get involved in writing the next chapter of metal history...and in the bargain...walk away with *astounding* participation rewards like an authentic VR guitar, a copy of their (increasingly rare) classic "Digital Dictator" vinyl LP from 1987, signed copies of the DVD, a phone call from VR founder Geoff Thorpe, and more.

One ground breaking metal CD after another...one monumental tour after another...each time out, somehow...VR manages to rise ever higher. And it's no accident...according to one reviewer of their most recent outing, 2014's "Live You to Death 2: American Punishment"

"Gripping and relentless, with the high-pitched wail of new singer Nick Holleman swooping and diving in and around stampeding double-kick drums, tenacious bass lines and serrated, stinging guitars, the energetic romp Live You to Death 2: American Punishment finds Vicious Rumors thrashing as hard as ever"

Vicious Rumors' performances are legendary, and for good reason: the band was at the epicenter of the US heavy metal explosion...and have been rising higher and higher with each new project. The VR Kickstarter project is every metal fan's chance to now be a part of making heavy metal history.

And as away of expressing their gratitude for thirty years worth of support, Vicious Rumors is proud to be offering fans who are able to participate...some items that are sure to enjoy a place of honor in your VR collection (several of which may become sought after collector's items by fans of the band).

In the case of the Vicious Rumors guitars that are available for VR Kickstarter participants...there's only 3, and once they are spoken for by a contributor, they are off the list. If you have your eye on one, don't hesitate! The first $1500. participant gets to choose from the 3...the 2nd from the two that are left...and the one that remains will go to the final contributor who participates at the $1500. level

In closing...a special "shout out" of thanks to all of our fans and friends, who have made 30 years of metal possible. We are delighted that you are considering being a contributor...and we'll look forward to seeing all of  you out on the road in 2015!

Risks and challenges

In preparing a live music DVD for release, the bulk of the challenges involved are in the post-production: the final editing of the footage/video. In advance, Vicious Rumors is making arrangements with one of the very best video editing firms in the California Bay Area. To confirm to fans that VR is committed to making this project an overwhelming success, one only needs to refer to the band's history of coming across with the goods...1996's VHS release commemorating their 10 year anniversary, "The First 10 Years", and 2005's "Crushing the World" live DVD. Never in their 30 year history has VR been faced with a challenge they did not overcome - you name it, and the band has survived it. So when it comes to the matter of getting music to the fans - this project will be no different than any other challenge the band has faced...without fail, they always deliver.
