V FOR VIOLENCE releases a follow-up album ”The Book Of V” to it’s 2009’s debut ”The Cult Of V”. 

”The Book Of V” took years to get it’s shape and sound. We wanted to take the next step in songwriting and payed more attention on details,” says the band’s singer Jarkko Lähderanta.

So far V FOR VIOLENCE has released two free track downloads on their website campaign: ”What The Fuck!” and ”Like It Like That”. The first official single ”The Hated Saint” with a music video was also released recently and was premiered on Finland’s biggest music magazine Soundi’s site. The second single “The Downfall Pt. II: Amourageddon” already found it’s way to Finnish radio and the music video was premiered on Kaaoszine.fi.

The album was mixed by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, The 69 Eyes, Negative), mastered by Svante Forsbäck
(Sunrise Avenue, Amorphis) and recorded and produced by Anzi Destruction. Featuring artists on ’The Book’ are Olli Vänskä (Turisas), Tommi Salomaa (ex-Wankers of the Zoo Crew), Anna Grundström (Milargo) and Mr Bunny with his bandmate Nooz (Cold Cold Ground {RIP}). ”The Book Of V” will be released August 28th 2015 via Inverse Records.

”The album sounds groovy and aggressive, yet melancholy melodic and on top of the basic rock band sound we used a lot of industrial sounds, samples, pianos, barrels and strings to create a cool combination,” says Jarkko,

Like the music,  the stories are about breaking both face and heart, and filled with metaphors from religious writings to straight-forward ’punch in the face’ approach, which may give an extra depth for a listeners mind to dwell into as well as something to listen to when they want to break something.
