Vajra returns from SXSW and will perform songs from their forthcoming debut album ‘Pleroma’ at The Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Saturday, March 24 at 8PM (doors at 7:00pm). Vajra’s multimedia performance will include visuals from projectionist Neon Meow, featuring the art of Kaliptus, Wulfgang and Raven Noir. They will open for Killcode, and will be joined by Starkiller and Stoned Fire. The band played to sold-out audiences during their last two performances at The Mercury Lounge and The Bowery Electric.
Eastern Indian themes weave together with melodic, progressive rock to create foreboding and mysterious lullabies and a stunning new sound. The album is a haunting exploration of paradox, written during Annamaria Pinna’s self-imposed exile in India. Annamaria’s powerful vocals are highlighted by Luke Markham on drums, Doug Wright (The Dirty Pearls) on bass, and Will Dahl (ex-Harley’s War) on guitar. Blake Fleming (ex-The Mars Volta) played drums on the album,‘Pleroma’ , Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of A Down, Prince, Johnny Cash) co-produced the vocals and mixed. Tom Baker (NIN, Foo Fighters, Ministry, Prince) mastered.
The band is quickly generating a buzz after releasing their first single “Inside The Flame”. At SXSW, they performed two shows, and Virgin America selected Vajra’s single “Erode The Will” for their In-Flight Entertainment Series.
Tickets for the March 24th performance at The Bowery Ballroom are $15 advance and and are available for $18 at the box office. For more information, contact: Vajra on their website at: http://www.thevajratemple.com or email at: vajratemple(at)gmail(dot)com.
