2013 has been a landmark year for Voodoo Six. Not only did they release a new album Songs To Invade Countries To, which continues to be critically acclaimed, but they also featured as main support on arguably the tour of the year: the legendary Iron Maiden's 'Maiden England' European tour.
28 shows in 18 countries in arenas, stadiums and festivals, playing to an estimated 300,000 people and culminating in a sold-out show at the O2 Arena in their hometown of London.The new album Songs To Invade Countries To is the follow-up to their 2010 album Fluke?, which was released through Classic Rock magazine's Powerage Records and mixed by uber studio engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica, Jimmy Page), boasting the talent of brand new vocalist and front man Luke Purdie. Songs To Invade Countries To consists of 11 tracks mixed by Tony Newton & Pedro Ferreira (The Darkness, Enter Shikari, Therapy?) and mastered by Ade Emsley (Iron Maiden, Steve Harris). The album was recorded & mixed at Steve Harris' Barnyard Studio UK and released worldwide on May 27th on Spinefarm/Universal, the same date V6 started their mammoth European trek with Iron Maiden.
The band's plans for 2014 include a comprehensive UK tour, following successful shows this year at London's Garage and Underworld, selected venues around the country, and a major invasion of Europe and beyond to revisit territories they encountered on the Maiden tour, and some new ones not yet visited.

"Voodoo Six are doing things right. If you don't come away from it gurning with enjoyment then rock is not for you." 4/5. Fortitude Magazine
