Vapors of Morphine Announce New Album, Tour Dates

Vapors of Morphine

Vapors of Morphine have announced a new album called Fear & Fantasy, which will be released on September 24th. The band, which features former members of Morphine, is previewing the record with its first single, entitled Irene.

Similar to the late Mark Sandman’s work in Morphine, multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Lyons carries on the band’s sound with his two-string slide bass style. Lyons explains “Irene” as having vintage elements.

“Although it’s performed with a basic Morphine-style arrangement – slide-bass, sax, drums, and vocals – to me, this song is reminiscent of late 50’s/early 60’s pop music,” he said. “It’s like bubble gum pop grew up, developed a drinking problem, got left at the altar, and went to bed.”

Vapors of Morphine have also set an East Coast tour for October and November. The outing will focus on New England, starting October 1st in New Hampshire and wrapping up November 20th in Woodstock, NY.
