Vampires Everywhere! are back for blood with "White Wedding" single release just in time for National Goth Day 2024.



Michael Vampire of Vampires Everywhere! says "When I was a young boy my mother used to play Billy Idol for me nonstop! His music is in my blood (no pun intended) and I'm beyond excited to share with the world my rendition of one of his most iconic songs 'White Wedding'. I remember seeing the OG version on MTV and being blown away! I wanted to make sure I did the song justice and pulled no stops setting up a music video that even Billy Idol would be proud of. I absolutely feel this is my best music video to date and I couldn't be more thankful to everyone that was involved. Alex from Black Wolf Imaging did a fantastic job bringing my vision to life and understanding the importance of storytelling in music videos. I wanted to pay homage to the classic movies that defined my childhood. Movies like "Carrie" and "Queen Of The Damned" helped inspire me to create something memorable. I've always been the underdog in the music industry and treated like Todd from "Wedding Crashers" haha! So I wanted the video to have the separation between the popular crowd and the so-called freaks. It was actually mind blowing to see the cast get so involved in the video and even genuinely clapping when the groom and bride get together in the end. It's amazing how powerful music can be and I'm proud to show the world my version of 'White Wedding'."




Vampires Everywhere! was conceptualized in the beginning of 2010 by Michael Orlando later known as Michael Vampire. The band started its journey in Hollywood, CA. Michael’s obsession with the 1987 cult classic film “The Lost Boys” fueled his desire to start a band around his love for horror movies and his passion for rock music. Vampires Everywhere! quickly gained notoriety in 2010 with the band’s debut music video “Immortal Love”. The music video quickly hit 1 million views and landed on the iconic MTV Headbangers Ball!


Following the video’s success giant metal blogs started adamantly posting the band. A few months later Vampires Everywhere! was signed to Century Media records. VE! joined the Hot Topic Tour in 2010 with Black Veil Brides around the United States & Canada. The band also landed an opening spot on X Japan’s first North American Tour; playing for over 5,000 people a night. Till this day VE! is the only band to open for X Japan in the United States.



In 2012 VE! landed a coveted spot on the Vans Warped Tour. VE! played the Monster stage and spots on the Main Stage all summer. After an amazing run on the Warped the band was asked by Kevin Lyman to Headline Rob Zombie’s Great Adventure in Pomona, CA.


Vampires Everywhere! has toured with the likes of Motionless In White, Aiden, Alesana, Orgy, Filter, Falling In Reverse, Escape The Fate, and countless others. The band played festivals including Inkcarceration Fest, Dark Force Fest, South By SoWhat, HTP Fest, and many more!


The 2021 rebirth of the band has generated major attention and spawned a whole new generation of VE fans! Vampires Everywhere!'s cover of "Cry Little Sister" , the theme song from the 1987 cult classic film "The Lost Boys" earned a Top 40 spot on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart and Mediabase Rock Radio Charts. The song was also featured on the Paramount+ Hit TV Show "Burning Girls" in the UK. The band has just released their latest single; a cover of Billy Idol's "White Wedding".
