Geoff Thorpe: “The “Concussion Protocol ” album has been a the most intense recording project of my long career! We’re working together as a team! A year and half of writing, recording and now the release is right around the corner Aug 26th. Nick and Tilen came to California to record and we made the ” Take It Or Leave It ” video together giving fans a first time look at the making of the album and the power of our performance. Vicious Rumors runs on fire and passion! The reaction from the first video “Chasing The Priest” was so overwhelmingly positive….now check out the members of Vicious Rumors in full force with “Take It Or Leave It”

“Concussion Protocol” will be released through SPV/Steamhammer on August 26th, 2016 as a digipak version (incl.poster), 2LP gatefold red vinyl edition and download.
