The Electric Flame out May 12, 2017

ViceVersa's long awaited debut is almost here. The 9 song "The Electric Flame" will be released this coming Friday on all Streaming services and at local retailers such as Amoeba Hollywood.

Excerpt from their press release:

The album’s title, The Electric Flame, holds deep significance for the group. When faced with the reality of a name change ViceVersa looked to their biggest influences for inspiration. “Electric” is a nod to the iconic Jimi Hendrix, who revolutionized electric guitar playing with his futuristic style and who started off fronting a band called Jimmy James and the Blue Flames. That Imagery was also referenced by the funk master James Brown who championed a new genre of music while backed by his Famous Flames.
