Vampires Everywhere! change their name
2013-11-16 by TheDarkestNight | 39 Comments

Shock Rock band Vampires Everywhere! have changed their name to The Killing Lights.

Frontman Michael Vampire has released a statement regarding the name change.

"I would like to personally welcome you to the new chapter in my life "The Killing Lights". As most of you know I was involved in a near fatal car accident many years back. I feel the name The Killing Lights properly represents my struggle with this tragic event & the new chapter in my music career. We will be entering the studio in 2014 to record our debut record on Century Media Records. CMR has been amazing with this transition & their positive energy towards the change has been awesome. We will be doing a UK Tour in Feb. to give a glimpse of what's to come. I have so much respect for my loyal VE fans over the years that have fought with us & stuck by us on every turn. I cannot wait for you to hear the new TKL music & see us live. Check back on Monday to hear a new demo. I love all of you & I'm excited for this next chapter in my life!"

In all fairness it's a much better name than the old one, the logic behind it is pretty dumb though. If I was him I would've said something along the lines of wanting to be taken more seriously as a band and a name like Vampires Everywhere! wasn't helping.

Band needs reason for name change. Band goes with classic "personally meeningful" reason with generic story behind it. Band is still bad.

I'd probably buy their merch if they said "people were making fun of us and I haven't been laid in 7 months so new name"

Vampires Everywhere is a pretty awful name, so good call on their part I guess.

They can change their name, but they can't change their current legacy of lame music.

the demo sounds generic, but technically better than any of their other stuff. vocals are pretty damn bad too. it sounds like he has to strain to hit the most basic notes. at least they aren't ripping off manson anymore, regardless.

The Killing Lights is a pretty stupid band name and its literal meaning is also fucking stupid. Fuck this stupid band.

@Dance I don't see how a car wreck that killed absolutely no one is something he should have to "cope" with. I understand the occasional jolt in the car, or possibly a flashback in a dream, but this guy has said before in interviews that he refuses to drive because of that accident, when he wasn't even the one driving. That, to me, is using the incident as a crutch. Like I said, I was in a near fatal accident about a year ago as a passenger, and maybe I'm just weird, but the first thing I thought was "I'm glad my friend and I survived." I'd be fine if he just wrote a song about the accident, but if this new band name so reflects the accident, he's only going to be reminded of it every day.
