Last fall, VAMPS crashed North American soil for select headline dates which included stops in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Toronto and Mexico City in support of two new songs: “Inside of Me” featuring CHRIS MOTIONLESS from MOTIONLESS IN WHITE and “Rise or Die,” which was co-written with EMIGRATE/RAMMSTEIN guitarist RICHARD Z.KRUSPE.
“Inside Of Me” was the first VAMPS track to ever receive airplay on SiriusXM Octane and impressively won the weekly Octane Twitter poll by a landslide. The song has since become the band’s biggest streaming success to date. Get “Inside Of me” and “Rise Or Die” on iTunes and Apple Music HERE or stream them on Spotify HERE.
