Virgil & The Accelerators are set to release a brand new studio album 'Army of Three' on Monday 6th October via Mystic Records. The band will support the release of the album with the single and accompanying promo video 'All Night Long'.

The new album dovetails Virgil & The Accelerators' nationwide UK tour which starts on 29th September at the Borderline, London.

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 very nearly failed before the end of production.
'Chris had a recording gig booked in Greece and we all but completed the album with the exception of two more days left,' recalls VATA bassist Jack Alexander Timmis.

'Before we were to return to the studio to finish the album, Chris was diagnosed with Legionnaires disease. He was in intensive care for three months. He was lucky to come out of it alive. We didn't want to bother his family, but, at the same time, we were frantic about finishing the album. We originally planned to release it in May. When Chris made a full recovery, we immediately returned to the studio to finish the album.'

The band will also be performing on a full tour in October and November:
