RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA have revealed the first single off its upcoming full-length record, Cursed. The new song, “Weight Of The World” can be heard using the link below and is also the first instant track for those who pre-order the album. The pre-order for Cursed is available now via the links below, with the record slated for a March 17th release on Century Media.
In addition to the release of Cursed, Righteous Vendetta will begin its first tour of the new year next week in the band’s hometown of Casper, WY. The five-week trek will see the band performing new material off the record. A complete list of dates can be found below.
Cursed is the soundtrack to Righteous Vendetta’s overall mission statement. “We’ve always wanted to have a positive influence on people’s lives, but in a real way,” Lead Vocalist Ryan Hayes explained. “We want to connect with people, find common ground, and develop real relationships that aren’t superficial.”
The two years Righteous Vendetta spent crafting this new album was time well spent. “We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to write ‘hits’ at one point” Hayes confessed. “If you get too much into that mentality, you can start to lose yourself. So as we made Cursed, we focused on what we were when we started: a metal band. And we wrote a metal album.”

They’re awesome! I continue to be astounded by all the great rock bands making music today, and get so tired of hearing ‘rock is dead.’ Sadly, rock seems to have a relatively small following anymore, with hip-hop, rap and country dominating these days.
