VICIOUS RUMORS are proud to introduce Nick Courtney on lead vocals for the upcoming 46 date "Digital Dictator 30th Anniversary Tour" of America and Canada from Aug 31 to Oct 20. Due to the massive size of the US-Tour the band will bring the Digital Dictator Tour to Europe in April 2019 where one show is confirmed already: 13.04.2019 DE-Mannheim - Delta Metal Meeting (https://www.deltametalmeeting.de/)

Nick brings power, style and dedication back to the band as well as bringing the Digital Dictator album to life on tour! Geoff Thorpe says "Nick has a real kick ass approach! We're ready to tear it up on tour with his powerful and melodic voice." At 30 years old, Nick comes from Vancouver, Washington bringing a new fire and energy to the VICIOUS RUMORS camp. Nick was an American Idol contestant who stood his ground singing PRIEST and MAIDEN at his audition...one of the very few metal singers to ever make the second round on the show! Former singer Brian Allen recommended Nick to the band as schedule and direction conflicts led to his departure. Enter Nick Courtney... the band is ready to hit the road on the world stage.

The special edition DVD is now titled 40th Anniversary-Live in Germany and has a new cover. The DVD of last year's crushing show at the Bang Your Head Festival in Germany will be available directly from the band starting Aug 31st at the first show of the tour in Santa Rosa CA at the University of Rock. The DVD will be available only at the shows and online through the VICIOUS RUMORS social media sites.
