Vektor Returns on a New Label, Tour Dates Announced

Nearly six years after thrash band Vektor went on hiatus and three years after frontman David DiSanto faced public accusations – and video emerged – of alleged domestic violence, the band is back on a major label and writing new material.

The announcement came earlier today, with the bad posting the following statement on their social media accounts:

“We are extremely pleased to announce that Vektor has signed with Century Media Records! They have long been on our radar, and we couldn’t be happier for this new partnership. Recording of our fourth studio album has commenced and we have set the bar very high for ourselves once again. We are eager to begin the next phase of our global takeover with such a legendary record label. On the heels of this amazing news, we cannot wait to begin our European tour this fall after a nearly six-year hiatus. See you out there, Vektonauts!”

Vektor initially went on hiatus in 2016 after then drummer Blake Anderson, guitarist Erik Nelson and bassist Frank Chin unceremoniously quit the band. Today, the newly reformed lineup includes David DiSanto on guitars and vocals, Stephen Coon on bass, Mike Ohlson on drums, and Erik Nelson on guitar.

The band’s next album will be their fourth studio effort and is slated to release sometime next year.

Philipp Schulte, Vice President Century Media Records, said the label’s latest talent acquisition was an exciting development.

“We are excited to announce our cooperation with Vektor. Vektor seamlessly merge outstanding songwriting and technical finesse into something truly standard setting for modern metal. In the spirit of their quantum-leap vision for themselves, new music awaits. Let the countdown begin!”

This news comes nearly three years after frontman David DiSanto faced allegations of domestic violence. At that time he and his wife Katy traded barbs online, with the latter sharing a minute-long video that showed some of the alleged abuse. Since then, both parties have been involved in a protracted legal battle.

Regardless of the outcome of that situation, Vektor will be hitting the road with Cryptosis, Comaniac and Algebra in October. Additional run dates are also planned with Cryptosis across the UK, Ireland, Greece and Turkey. You can check out the dates below:
