(Los Angeles, CA) — One thing we all know is, when it rains it pours…and for the LA-based critically acclaimed band NICO VEGA, 2013 looks to be a monsoon with a game-changing tour and new EP, FURY OH FURY EP featuring one “BEAST” of a song…
Following an opening slot for NO DOUBT in November, an announcement earlier today confirmed Nico Vega as the openers for one of 2012’s most buzzed about bands, IMAGINE DRAGONS, on a 24-city major-market North American tour beginning on February 8, 2013. Nico Vega’s live show can be summed up as explosive, magnetic, captivating and dynamic. Please see full list of tour dates below.
Aside from steadily collecting a passionate group of core fans since their inception in 2006, Nico Vega have recently been catapulted into the mainstream as their song “Beast” was featured in the epic trailer for the video game BioShock Infinite. The trailer received almost 2-million views in its first week and Nico Vega saw a staggering 4,000% increase in single sales, making “Beast” an unexpected overnight hit. The song then went on to be licensed in the trailer for Tom Cruise’s new film Jack Reacher. The BioShock Infinite trailer will be shown in movie theaters nationwide prior to the anticipated blockbuster, The Hobbit.

With the momentum of “Beast,” Nico Vega have also announced plans to release an EP via new label home Five Seven Music, Fury Oh Fury EP, featuring the aforementioned hit, as well as a few choice cuts from their upcoming full-length We Are the Art expected this summer. As part of the 5-song EP, Prefix Magazine premiered last week the band’s video for “Easier,” which was directed by the band’s drummer Dan Epand and features Vega guitarist Rich Koehler as a mariachi player.
