GLENN HUGHES, nicknamed the ‘Voice of Rock’, has today unveiled an official photo of his new band that he has put together for his European and UK 2015 Solo tour.  Glenn is pictured alongside drummer Pontus Engborg (far left) and ex-Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich (far right).   The photo is taken by Gene Kirkland.

 

The band’s UK leg of the European tour stars on October 17th at the Southampton Engine Rooms and ends at London’s Electric Ballroom on November 1st.   Special guest on the tour is Jared James Nichols who recently released his critically acclaimed debut album Old Glory & The Wild Revival.

 

The concerts will showcase highlights from Glenn’s career including Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Country Communion, California Breed, along with his solo material.

 

“I felt it was time for me to start touring with my solo band,” says Glenn, who is currently on tour in Brazil.  “I called my drummer Pontus Engborg , and guitar player Soren Andersen.  Soren had made a contractual commitment to do an autumn Tour in Scandinavia, so I had to find a replacement.

There was only one man on my mind… Doug Aldrich.”

 

“I’ve  known Doug from his time with Ronnie Dio , and of course Whitesnake. Doug played with me on a couple of Purple songs at a festival the night before Ronnie passed away. We had great chemistry , and talked about playing together again, when schedules permitted.

 

Continues Hughes, “ Doug is a welcome addition to my Band, and is a dear friend , both loving and nurturing , and is a rock phenomenon.  I’m beyond grateful to return to a Solo Band touring cycle, that will see me travel across many continents these next 12 months.See you down the front.”

 

Glenn Hughes is a true original.  No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk.  That astonishing voice is Hughes’ calling card.  He’s known as a singer’s singer. Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favorite white singer.  “I love my fans, and interact with them online, or at venues on my travels,” says Hughes. “There is no greater high than performing and to reach out to my fans.”

UGLY KID JOE Release First New Album In Almost 20 Years

August 18th, 2015
by Celtic Bob

ukj

After a 19-year hiatus, raucous rockers UGLY KID JOE are set to return with a new full-length album entitled, Uglier Than They Used Ta Be.

The album, which was recorded at JT Studios and Balance Studios in Louisiana under the helm of producer and UKJ guitarist Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Godsmack, Evanescence), is scheduled for release in North America October 16th via Metalville/UKJ  Records.

Whitfield Crane (Vocals) and Klaus Eichstadt (Guitars) teamed up with Sonny Mayo (Guitars), Shannon Larkin (Drums), Zac Morris (Drums), Cordell Crockett (Bass) and Dave Fortman (Guitars) to form the now 7-member line up a.k.a. “Seven Headed Monster” (pictured below) and write and record in the studio. The result is the most cohesive sounding UGLY KID JOE record to date.

The chemistry flows so well throughout this new release, it’s as though they never left. Uglier Than They Used Ta Be boasts a collection of well-crafted rock tunes, from the riff driven ‘Let The Record Play’ to the hard-hitting ‘She’s Already Gone’ and ‘Hell Aint Hard To Find’, the album offers up a collection of some of the best songs ever written by the band.

“It’s a full circle of sorts,” says Crane. “There was a lot of love and talent in one room and that is exactly what this album sounds like.”

Uglier Than They Used Ta Be Tracklisting:

1. Hell Aint Hard To Find

2. Let The Record Play

3. Bad Seed

4. Mirror The Man

5. She’s Already Gone

6. Nothing Ever Changes

7. My Old Man

8. Under The Bottom

9. Ace Of Spades (feat. Phil Campbell of Motörhead)

10. Enemy

11. Papa Was A Rolling Stone

In addition to the nine newly written original songs, the album features a couple of cover songs including Rare Earth’s version of ‘Papa Was A Rolling Stone’ with Australian chart-topping vocalist Dallas Frasca lending her unmistakable vocals behind Crane, and the Motörhead classic ‘Ace of Spades’ with a very special guest appearance from Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell who lends his signature sound to the timeless track. Campbell also appears on the tracks ‘My Old Man’ and ‘Under The Bottom’.

This September the band will head to the UK for an intimate tour finishing with two shows at the Underworld in London.

More on UGLY KID JOE:

Having first garnered success with the song “Everything About You,” which peaked at number three on the Billboard Top 100 Singles chart [enjoying 20 weeks on the charts] and was later used in the movie Wayne’s World, the group’s debut E.P. As Ugly As They Wanna Be sold two million copies making it the highest selling debut E.P. of all time.

The positive response to the band’s live performance of Harry Chapin’s “Cat’s in the Cradle” prompted a studio version and was subsequently released as a well-received single that sold over 500,000 copies in the United States alone and spent 20 weeks on the BB Top 100 Singles chart, peaking at number six.

PENTAGRAM Stream New Album

August 18th, 2015
by Celtic Bob

7e49da60-5a0c-443c-bb04-cc65b957d241

Legendary U.S. heavy/doom metal band, Pentagram, has teamed up with Noisey to stream its upcoming album, Curious Volume, before it releases this Friday, August 21 on Peaceville. Stream Curious Volume today exclusively at: http://noisey.vice.com/blog/pentagram-new-album-2015.

Featuring 11 classic heavy metal compositions with catchy hooks from core band members Victor Griffin, Greg Turley, and Bobby Liebling (Pete Campbell on the drums completes the band’s line-up), Curious Volume was recorded with Swedish producer Mattias Nilsson at studios located in Maryland and Virginia. Additional recording took place in Tennessee with Grammy-nominated producer, Travis Wyrick, who also produced Pentagram’s previous album, Last Rites. The album’s cover artwork was provided courtesy of Richard Schouten.

Pre-order Curious Volume online at: http://www.peaceville.com/store.

1. Lay Down and Die
2. The Tempter Push
3. Dead Bury Dead
4. Earth Flight
5. Walk Alone
6. Curious Volume
7. Misunderstood
8. Close the Casket
9. Sufferin`
10. Devil`s Playground
11. Because I Made It

Pentagram will support the release of Curious Volume with a headlining U.S. tour, set to kick off in Philadelphia, Pa. on September 30. Electric Citizen and Satan’s Satyrs will join Pentagram for the nine city trek. A list of confirmed dates, including a handful of one-off West Coast headliners this month, can be seen below.

Frontman Bobby Liebling commented: “Pentagram is extremely excited about our upcoming tours in the U.S. and Europe this fall. We all are itching to perform some of our songs off of our new album Curious Volume for you. We feel that they fit well within the other heavy numbers from the bands near 45 year history. Of course, the set is packed with the classics you know and love and ones that you may not even expect. Bring your earplugs; we are going to blow off the roof with our curious volume!”

Formed in the early 1970s with a debut album Relentless releasing in 1985, Pentagram has survived through more than four decades filled with adversity and triumph to become the legendary international act it is today, firmly stamping its name into the heavy metal history books. Although once viewed as a cult act but with a strong and dedicated global fan base, Pentagram has enjoyed a recent surge in popularity due in part to the 2011 documentary, Last Days Here, which follows the trials and tribulations of a troubled rock star, Pentagram’s lead singer Bobby Liebling. With a DVD release set for this fall on Peaceville’s label, the documentary has garnered international recognition on the film festival circuit and has won several awards, including “Best Music Documentary” at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam.

The band recently released its double DVD collection, All Your Sins, featuring over 7 hours of live footage spanning a period of three decades.

Stay tuned for more information on Pentagram and Curious Volume, out this week on Peaceville.

GWAR B-Q Is Huge Success – GWAR Announces North American Tour Dates!

August 18th, 2015
by Celtic Bob

mUUMTYYRTHUV1Uxd5FRmUUVen4wFgtvyXR4JQdMa3HR_U_-xaXCqFqc9SaVIEeLciA7FzA=s2048

The 6th Annual GWAR B-Q was held this weekend in beautiful Richmond, Virginia.  All Bohabs lucky enough to survive the event are in agreement; this was the best GWAR B-Q ever!  Fans from across the globe made their way to Hadad’s Lake in Richmond to celebrate the 30th Birthday of intergalactic shock rock giants….GWAR!

The 3-day weekend of destruction and debauchery started off at The National with the B4BQ, featuring blistering performances from Coal Chamber, Fear Factory and every band from The Summer Slaughter Tour.  After the show, hundreds of Bohabs kept the party going at GWAR’s own watering hole, the one and only GWARbar!

The weekend’s main event took place on Saturday, August 15th, under crystal clear skies at Hadad’s Lake.  The water was cool, and the Oderus Ale was flowing like hot, delicious piss! In an uncharacteristic act of compassion, our Lords and Masters offered free GWATER to the delirious, heat stroking Bohabs, and this was no Woodstock…there were more than enough chemical toilets for all the pee pee and poo poo!

Riding high on the momentum from The GWAR B-Q, the Intergalactic Overlords are set to hit the road next week.  The tour begins August 25th in Millvale, PA and ends September 19th in Toronto.  Support on the tour will come from Butcher Babies and label-mates Battlecross, and this run will see the band playing all three Riot Fest dates (Denver, Chicago, Toronto) and the Befuddled Fest in New Albany, IL. Tickets for these dates are on sale now!

Following their appearance at the final Riot Fest in Toronto, GWAR will return to their arctic slumber for less than a month before they return to finish the desecration of the North American continent.  This time, the band will be joined by Born of Osiris and once again their friends in Battlecross.  This leg of the tour kicks off October 7th in Cincinnati, OH and wraps up November 28th in Orlando, FL.  For the Canadian dates on the tour direct support will come from Cryptopsy.  More dates will be added in the coming weeks, so don’t worry if your Intergalactic rock gods have yet to announce a date in your town. Tickets for these Fall shows go on sale Friday August 21st, but if you are a member of the GWAR Fan Club, you can get your tickets starting today direct from your Overlords at a reduced ticket processing fee by clicking the logo below or visiting gwar.missiontix.com.

GWAR promises an all new show that cannot be missed. All human scum are commanded to attend each and every show of the tour! So tell your bosses, spouses and screaming rug rats to suck it! Dedicate your life to GWAR!

The band is keeping the gory details of the show tightly under wraps, but guitarist Pustulus Maximus seems hell bent on leaking some information about what to expect…

“I have yet to grasp this concept of the internet and the spouting of self-important speeches by people in social media; the INTERNET MUST DIE, so GWAR will KILL IT!. Management tells me the internet is not a person that can be fought and killed, but they don’t know the true power of a Scumdog. WE KILL EVERYTHING!”

RAVEN Frontman Covers DEEP PURPLE and KANSAS with A SOUND OF THUNDER

August 18th, 2015
by Celtic Bob

john gallagher

John Gallagher (Raven) has recorded lead vocals on A SOUND OF THUNDER’s covers of “Space Truckin'”(DEEP PURPLE) and “Icaurs – Borne on Wings of Steel”(KANSAS). Both tracks are exclusively available via A Sound of Thunder’s current Kickstarter campaign which runs through August 17th.  Previews of both tracks are streaming on the band’s Soundcloud page here.

Gallagher commented on the guest spots: “It was my pleasure to be invited to be a part of the A SOUND OF THUNDER project.  I chose to do one I’d actually never heard by Kansas (an amazing band that I’m catching up on), and an old fave by Deep Purple. Hope you like ’em!!!!!”

A SOUND OF THUNDER recently announced its new album Tales from the Deadside with a Kickstarter campaign that reached full funding in under 24 hours.  The full-length concept album is based on Valiant Entertainment’s SHADOWMAN comic book series.  The album was recorded at Assembly Line Studios with RIAA-platinum awarded producer Kevin ‘131’ Gutierrez (Shinedown, While Heaven Wept, Raven).  Tales from the Deadside is set for release on September 25th.  The Kickstarter campaign runs through August 17th and features many exclusive items including colored vinyl, picture discs, t-shirts, and digital bonus tracks featuring additional guest musicians yet to be announced.

“The story of Shadowman, his alter-ego Jack Boniface, and the many characters in his world inspired us to create what we believe is our best album to date,” said A SOUND OF THUNDER guitarist Josh Schwartz.  “We let the story lead us to places our music has never been before, combining all the elements of supernatural horror, drama, action and adventure found in the comics. Of course everything has gone through our own unique Thunderous filter, and all the familiar ASOT elements will be there. Shadowman’s harrowing journey demanded no less!”

A Sound of Thunder was formed in Washington, DC in 2009.  Their most recent album “The Lesser Key of Solomon” was released on September 9th, 2014 via Mad Neptune Records and debuted at #43 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart.

RAVEN’s latest album “ExtermiNation” was released in April on SPV/Steamhammer Records.  The album was recorded at Assembly Line Studios with engineer Kevin ‘131’ Gutierrez and landed at #53 on the Billboard Hard Music chart and #190 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart.

A Sound Of Thunder:

Nina Osegueda- vocals

Josh Schwartz- guitars/ keyboards

W.A.S.P. Premiere New Song “Last Runaway”

August 18th, 2015
by Celtic Bob

yl1HCQp

Almost six years have passed since the world saw a new studio album from Metal Icons W.A.S.P.  This October 9th, the wait ends, as Blackie Lawless and the legendary rockers W.A.S.P. will release their long awaited new album and Napalm Records debut Golgotha.

Today the first single from Golgotha is receiving its exclusive premiere courtesy of UltimateClassicRock.com.  Be one of the first to hear “Last Runaway” HERE.

Frontman Blackie Lawless told about Ultimate Classic Rock about “Last Runaway”:

“40 years ago I came to Hollywood as a teenager.  Terrified and scared out of my mind, I had no idea what waited there for me.  The song “Last Runaway” is an intensely personal account of what happened to me, not only then but over the years and the success that followed after.  Be it a kid looking for success in the music business or any life challenging endeavor that someone would “Runaway” from in life, I’m certain that everyone can relate to this story one way or another.  It’s another kid “chasing the dream” ………and trying to survive it in the process…we’ve all been there!!”

Golgotha is available for pre-order from the Napalm Records

Golgotha Track Listing:
1. Scream
2. Last Runaway
3. Shotgun
4. Miss You
5. Fallen Under
6. Slaves of the New World Order
7. Eyes of My Maker
8. Hero of the World
9. Golgotha

W.A.S.P. came out of the Los Angeles Metal scene in 1982 gaining notoriety for their shock rock antics. With a career spanning over 3 decades, 17 world tours, and now their 15th studio album, they are a metal band that has evolved in maturity without having lost their signature sound, unlike many of their peers from their origins.  Golgotha will continue down the path that 2007’s Dominator and 2009’s Babylon started on, both in production style and theme. Years in the making, Golgotha will undoubtedly lead the listeners on the emotionally epic undertaking that W.A.S.P. has become acclaimed for!

What are the chances of seeing the likes of King Diamond and Slayer live in concert twice in the same year? It was just last fall that I caught a headlining festival performance featuring the long awaited return of King Diamond at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest and shortly after that I caught a blistering performance from thrash legends Slayer at the historic Austin City Limits venue atop a billing that also featured Exodus and Suicidal Tendencies. This year’s traveling rock festival turned tabloid controversy that is the Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival featured the unholiest of pairings in co-headliners Slayer and King Diamond alongside Hellyeah, Whitechapel, Jungle Rot and Sister Sin to name a few. We caught up with vocalist Liv Jagrell of the Swedish second-stage act Sister Sin as well as Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph for some metal talk  and managed to snap some pretty choice King Diamond liveshots as well!

The HOT STREAK will continue this fall for THE WINERY DOGS (Richie Kotzen-lead vocals/guitar, Mike Portnoy-drums, Billy Sheehan-bass).  Their second appropriately titled, self-produced studio album, HOT STREAK, is set for release October 2 on Loud & Proud Records via RED (a division of Sony Music Entertainment) and in the rest of the world via earMUSIC. It will be preceded by the first single, “Oblivion,” set for release August 25 at radio.  A double vinyl edition of the new album is also in the works and is due out in early November.

After playing over 100 shows in support of their self-titled debut album, THE WINERY DOGS are eager to head back out on the road to get behind HOT STREAK. Their first round of U.S. headlining tour dates will kick off October 3 in Ridgefield, CT at the Ridgefield Playhouse. Shows around the globe are already being planned for 2016.

HOT STREAK shows the powerfully pedigreed trio’s initial burst of collective chemistry was no accident, from the strum and headbang of “Captain Love” to the propulsive uplifting vibe of “The Bridge” to the introspective acoustic harmonic convergence of “Fire.” If these three Dogs thought they captured lightning in a supper dish the first time around, HOT STREAK barks ups the aural ante into exciting new territory.

“I feel we’ve taken the band to another level,” explains Richie Kotzen. “The compositions are stronger on this album. I feel more connected lyrically and musically to what I did on this record than on the last one. We’ve widened the musical scope of the band on this record and moved it forward.”

Mike Portnoy continues, “Everything on this album was more of a collaboration than on the first album. There’s just a natural chemistry. The three of us really mesh very, very well, both musically and personally. The mission of this band is to write catchy songs, and not have the musicianship overpower that.”

“I’m glad we’re not playing it safe and just doing songs that automatically fit in the category of what we did on the first record,” Billy Sheehan concludes. “Some of them are a little different, and we definitely took chances. And you have to do that — otherwise, you don’t grow.”

The trio first exploded onto the Rock scene with their self-titled, self-produced and critically acclaimed debut album that was released July 23, 2013 on Loud & Proud Records and a sold-out worldwide tour.  THE WINERY DOGS debuted on Billboard’s “Top Alternative Albums” chart at #3, “Top Independent Albums” chart at #4, “Top Rock Albums” chart at #5, “Top Internet Albums” at #8 and “Top 200 Albums” chart at #27.
