Army Of Three is the band’s second studio album produced by the legendary Chris Tsangarides (Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest). The new album follows 2011’s critically acclaimed debut album The Radium which claimed a Best Of Year spot in Classic Rock magazine’s year round-up. The album will be released on 180 gram vinyl, CD and digital download.

VATA bassist Jack Alexander Timmis recalls when everything was cut short just before the LP was completed. Says Timmis, “Towards the end of production, the album was suddenly put on unexpected hold. Before we returned to the studio to finish the album, Chris Tsangarides was diagnosed with Legionnaires disease. He was in intensive care for 3 months. He was lucky to come out of it alive.
