Six years after the three Vlad brothers Kris, Lex and D. (Dario) together with their closest friend Alex (who has since been proc-laimed an honorary) Vlad created their alternative rock band "Vlad In Tears" the fourth album will be released in November 2011.
Meanwhile the band has toured all over Europe and Australia, played festivals like WGT 2011, and have earned critical acclaim in the music scene and beyond.
WELCOME TO VLADYLAND is a concept album which again supply proof of what has made VLAD IN TEARS a favorite of fans and music critics alike: musical quality and diversity.
The songs deal with alienation (Pretend), isolation (Circus On The Moon, At The End Of The World) as well as with new found courage (Here Comes The Rain) or love (Mary, To Be Mine, We'll Never Die). WELCOME TO VLADYLAND also features themes of loss (A Song To Say Goodbye) and of course, vampirism (A Vlad's Tale).
The concept behind WELCOME TO VLADYLAND expresses itself in a carnival- or theme park-like feel, each song representing a sensation or a show booth in Vladyland. As diverse as the lyrics of the album's 12 songs are, musically they are intertwined by the underlying tonality and rhythm of early 20th century carnival music ...
WELCOME TO VLADYLAND invites you into the world of VLAD IN TEARS where, if you listen closely, you ultimately might as well discover your own personal Vladyland.
