The band mostly covers songs from artists who have passed away to honor their memory. However, they have also released a few original songs. They released “The Boogieman Surprise” in May and “Who’s Laughing Now” in April.

Upcoming Album: Rise

Regarding their new album Rise, Cooper also told NME, “It’s not only a totally different animal than the first Vampires album, it is unique to anything I’ve ever been a part of. I think that with this album, we are establishing what the Vampires’ sound really is, whereas with the first album we were more tipping our hats to our fallen rock n roll brothers.”

Furthermore, other songs on their album will include covers of People Who Died by Jim Carroll Band’s and You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory by Johnny Thunder.
