HIMALAYAS share new single 'V.O.V', which was co-written with AC/DC’s Brian Johnson

HIMALAYAS have just unleashed a massive new single that was co-written by AC/DC legend Brian Johnson. The quartet’s latest anthem, 'V.O.V', is described by the band as “a song of resistance and struggle against violence and suffering. We wanted to talk of contrasting worlds and how the cracks between them are so readily paved over.”

‘V.O.V’, which stands for 'Victims of Violence' is here to solidify HIMALAYAS' rock'n'roll status. Speaking further about their iconic collaborator Brian “was really complimentary of our music and what we had achieved so far, something we were really grateful for.”

"When I was played their recordings, I immediately thought they were the perfect band for the song,” adds Brian himself. “The attack they bring to 'V.O.V' is musical violence, brilliant!”

'V.O.V.' is hefty, bass-driven rock – industrial sounding and complete with soaring guitar solos. According to the band "'V.O.V.' is a song of anger towards the powers that be and sympathy for those suffering from their ill-considered decisions." With their second album expected later this year, and a support slot for Foo Fighters in Cardiff locked in for June, it is already looking to be a huge year for HIMALAYAS.

Sharing a mutual love for stadium fillers like Queens Of The Stone Age, Muse, and Iggy Pop, HIMALAYAS have been making waves across the UK with their unique blend of gritty, raucous fast-paced rock’n’roll – playing festivals including Reading & Leeds, Isle of Wight, and Mad Cool, supporting the likes of Loveless and Gang Of Youths, selling out headline shows in London and Cardiff, and garnering supporters like Kerrang!, and BBC Radio 1's Daniel Carter, and Alyx Holcombe along the way.
