New York, New York (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
In support of the release of their debut album ‘Pleroma’, NYC based band Vajra just returned from their West Coast Tour, where they played in Weed, California at Sylvia Massy’s 4&20 Festival, the Bottom Of The Hill in San Francisco and The Roxy in Los Angeles.
The band is excited to perform back home in Brooklyn on Saturday, September 1st (Labor Day Weekend) at The Knitting Factory. Vajra will be headlining the show. The band announced on their Facebook page that in addition to their multi-media performance, they have a few surprises up their sleeves and will share the stage with some special musical guests. The night is not to be missed.
Vajra weaves Eastern Indian themes together with melodic, progressive rock, creating foreboding and mysterious lullabies and a stunning new sound. Their debut album ‘Pleroma’ was released on the Summer Solstice (June 21, 2012).
The band is quickly generating a buzz after selling-out their first show in November, 2011 (at The Bowery Electric in NYC). Virgin America selected Vajra’s single “Erode The Will” for their In-Flight Entertainment Series in December, 2011, and Vajra’s music is currently being played at over 200 radio stations nationwide, syndicated radio shows, podcasts, and music websites. The band just performed two shows at SXSW and recently played to sold-out audiences at The Bowery Ballroom, The Mercury Lounge and The Bowery Electric in NYC. The band recently signed licensing deals with The Discovery Network, MTV, Showtime and Bravo.
