New Jersey's VTT to kick off "Victims Of Sin Summer Tour” May 15

New Jersey's VTT to kick off "Victims Of Sin" Summer Tour May 15
New Jersey’s VTT will kick off the band’s “Victims of Sin” Summer Tour May 15 in Akron, Ohio, continuing to support the band’s third full-length release, ‘Symptoms Of Sin’. The record, produced by Biohazard and Suicide City guitarist Billy Graziadei at his Underground Sound Studios (Sick Of It All, Life Of Agony, Pantera), has led VTT to gigs alongside W.A.S.P., Biohazard, Wisdom In Chains, and more, as well as several headlining shows in and around the New Jersey area. The “Victims Of Sin Summer Tour” will take the band outside its tri-state homeland for the first time since the release of ‘Symptoms Of Sins’ in late 2009, heading as far away as Texas before returning back to New York in June for The Second Annual Autism Speaks Charity Car & Truck Show.

Several tracks from ‘Symptoms of Sin’ are now online at the band’s MySpace page. The band’s latest music video, for the lead track “The Victim”, is online along with other performance footage at VTT’s YouTube channel. The clip is also featured as an enhanced video segment on the digipack version of ‘Symptoms Of Sin.

Formed in 2005, VTT released ‘Mandala’ in that same year and ‘Alone In Pain’ in 2007 under the name Voodoo Terror Tribe. ‘Symptoms Of Sin’ marks the recording debut of VTT vocalist Gil-PZ, a Texas transplant that moved to New Jersey to join the band, as well as the band’s shortened moniker of VTT. “The acronym better represents our new approach, and is iconic in its own way,” VTT guitarist Emir Erkal recently stated in an interview. “While in a way we’re a tribe, the term ‘terror’ doesn’t usually apply.”

“The best thing to happen to the band was getting Biohazard and Suicide City guitarist Billy Graziadei to produce their new album, 'Symptoms of Sin.' The hardcore hero gelled well with the group, getting the best performances VTT have ever laid down on tape.” – Noisecreep.com

“Take a second, pause, and check back into metal’s roots, and Symptoms Of Sin in a way acts like a reminder to the glory days, with a classic sort of evil in the mix. Fans of loud heavy metal need to check out VTT now.” – SMNnews.com
