Vajra Releases New Single 'Inside the Flame' Exclusively on Loudwire
NYC art / progressive rockers Vajra will exclusively release their new single "Inside The Flame (Rapid Oxidation Mix)" on Loudwire.com this Friday, June 12th. The mix features Blake Fleming (ex-Mars Volta) on drums; was recorded by Sylvia Massy; arranged by 3 Years Hollow's Jose Urquiza and Annamaria Pinna, mixed by Freddie Katz (Plasmatics, Patti Rothberg, Willie Nile); and mastered by Mark Dann (Elton John, Black 47, Garth Hudson).
Vajra's music is hauntingly dark and hypnotic weaving Eastern Indian themes with melodic, progressive rock, creating foreboding and mysterious lullabies.
Rolling Stone Magazine named Vajra a "Must-See Act" this Summer at the Loudwire Music Festival, which takes place on June 26-28 in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Creem Magazine states, Vajra marries the sound of eastern India with the abrasive, melodic infrastructure of progressive rock. Since playing their first show in 2011, Vajra has been captivating the NYC music scene with their eyebrow raising theatrical antics and uncanny sound. [Their] live show is like a cathartic punch in the face."
Their single "Blind (Blood Mix)" was in rotation at terrestrial commercial rock stations including: WOBG/Fairmont, WKKI/Celina, KZND/Anchorage, KEYJ/Abilene, WGBF/Evansville, KJML/Joplin, KGRR/Dubuque, WOBJ/Fairmont, KAZY/Cheyenne, KFML/Little Falls, KHAD/Upton, KHWL/Altus, KMZK/Grand Junction, KOZE/Lewiston, KQDI/Great Falls, KROW/Cody, KRWN/Farmington, KTED/Casper, KTRX/Ardamore, KXPZ/Las Cruces, WECL/Eau Claire, and WPNT/Villa Rica and it was added to SiriusXM's hard rock Octane Channel over the Summer.
