The Virginmarys celebrate a worldwide deal with DoubleCross Records by announcing the band's debut album,'King Of Conflict'. Having spent the last two years touring extensively, supporting the likes of Eagles Of Death Metal, Slash, Ash, We Are Scientists and Skunk Anansie, repeated headline club tours and appearances at Download and Sonisphere it's little wonder that the likes of Kerrang have already started to fall for their 'attitude spitting guitars'. Altsounds suggested of one show 'they own the stage so much right now I doubt anyone would blink an eye if they took it home with them'. Such extensive touring fulfilled two of the trio's aims, to create their own fan base away from the full glare of media hype and to make sure that they were battle ready when they recorded 'King Of Conflict'; laying down the album live under the watchful eyes of Toby Jepson and Chris Sheldon (Pixies, Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, etc). Given that they have already sold out London's Garage as an unsigned band and that the forthcoming debut album is a contender for rock record of 2013, mission accomplished on both fronts.

'This is a band on the up, yet it feels more like a march forward determined, driven, unwavering in its conviction and absolutely guaranteed to excel' --Hooting and Howling
