Straight off their successful critically acclaimed debut album, and subsequent tour with Y&T, the Bournemouth based hard rockers, Voodoo Vegas, bounce back with what is a stop gap 4 track EP entitled “Hypnotise”. If you are a fan of rock, hard rock music, this is a must, they sit comfortably somewhere between the likes of Jettblack and Airbourne. Yes, I know this a strong statement, but very true in my opinion.

Hypnotise was produced by no other than Will Maya. Will Maya is the man responsible for The Answers’ latest “Raise A Little Hell” album, which topped the U.K.’s rock chart. As well as making it to the national top 20 chart). So the pedigree is there, it is down to the boys (and girl) of the band to deliver.

Although they have released only a 4 track EP, “Hypnotise”, it is a bridge between the band’s debut album  “The Rise Of Jimmy Silver” and their next album. “Hypnotise” provides just enough to give the fans a taster of what is to come in future. The EP is a hard rockin slice of what Voodoo Vegas are all about. Guitars, drums, and powerful vocals. From the very first notes of the title track, it just delivers! With lyrics such as: “…tied up break free make no apology…”, Voodoo Vegas certainly makes no apology for producing a slice of rock heaven. So much so that it leaves you tantalizingly waiting for their next full album.

In the meantime you can pre-order “Hypnotise” which is set to be released on 12 October 2015 via iTunes. Whilst you are waiting for the EP to drop, why not catch them on tour. Their up and coming tour dates are below:
