Skid Row

Skid Row

If you consider yourself a fan of 80’s rock’n’roll, then nothing can possibly seem better than a chance to see Skid Row play a sold-out show at the London’s O2 Academy Islington. Yes, the same Skid Row that many years ago toured the world with Guns N’Roses and released songs like “Youth Gone Wild” and “18 and Life” that once were soundtracks for a whole different generation.

What makes things even better is that tonight is a Saturday night, everyone seems to be up for a party and Skid Row have rolled into town bringing two great opening acts with them.

Unfortunately, due to work and family commitments, Jake Thorsen decided to step down from his role in I AM I and we wish him all the best for the future.

I AM I release new single, ‘You’re The Voice’ on 10th December

November 28th, 2012

I AM I release their cover of John Farnham’s classic 80′s track ‘You’re The Voice’ on December 10th on digital format, distributed worldwide by Plastichead and available from all the usual digital outlets.

Their rocking, feel-good cover of John Farnham’s classic 80′s song had been received exceptionally well on the band’s recent tour with everyone singing along with the memorable chorus of this great track, leading them to decide to put it out as an end of year single.

ZP also felt that the lyrical content of the track was especially relevant in this current era, mirroring what’s actually happening with the us all right now & making the timing for the single release perfect.

Written by Andy Qunta, Keith Reid, Maggie Ryder and Chris Thompson, ‘You’re The Voice’ was originally released by Aussie singer John Farnham in 1986 and was a smash hit, reaching the top 10 in most European countries.

‘Event Horizon’ to be released digitally worldwide on 10th December

I AM I’s debut album ‘Event Horizon’ will also be released worldwide on digital format on December 10th. This album had previously been released exclusively throughout Europe but due to the increasing demand for the release throughout the US, Americas, Australia and other territories, the decision was made to go ahead and release it digitally worldwide. The album be available to Download worldwide from that date from all usual digital outlets – iTunes, Play.com, Spotify, emusic, Amazon, Pandora etc

2012 has been an incredible year for I AM I from start to finish – their debut album ‘Event Horizon’ receiving critical acclaim across the board and their first festivals and UK tour under their belts – with a new EP pending early in the year, Skid Row tour already confirmed in April and many more shows & festivals to be announced, 2013‘s already looking to be another huge year for the band!

ARTHEMIS Interview – Guitarist Andrea Martongelli

November 20th, 2012

Arthemis Interview

 with Andrea Martongelli (Guitars/Backing Vocals)

Interview by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs

www.arthemismusic.com

 

Metal is an art form – fair enough one that is responsible for more sore necks than anything by Van Gogh or Picasso (well maybe not Picasso – funny angles and what not) but art none the less. And like art there’s a lot of different schools of thought. One set of artists wielding their brushes in the power-thrash scene is Italy’s Arthemis. Guitarist and backing vocalist Andrea Martongelli takes a break from the canvas and talks about the band’s latest body of works We Fight, and recent live antics. Oh and we discover pigs can’t sweat…

I AM I @ Borderline, London

November 6th, 2012

I Am I, Arthemis and Fahran

@ Borderline, London

22nd October 2012

Review by Alan Hicks

Photography by Sabrina Dersel


The Borderline, tucked away nicely around the corner from the Crobar always gives the feeling of intimacy.

This may sound blindingly obvious considering the size of the place (under 300 capacity) but this intimacy adds an almost showcase feel to proceedings, as if you are witnessing something special, like a one-off performance from a band usually more accustomed to playing larger venues or an act who after these tentative steps will play somewhere a whole lot bigger.

I Am I are somewhere between the two slightly helped by the presence of ex-Dragonforce singer ZP Theart in the ranks.

I AM I – New Drummer Announced

July 19th, 2012
I AM I

I AM I

We are very pleased to announce that I AM I can now confirm that the exceptionally talented Phil Martini (Down & Outz with Joe Elliott, Tokyo Dragons, Quireboys) is their new drummer.

 

With things really starting to build momentum after the release of their debut album ‘Event Horizon’, I AM I found themselves in need of a professional, talented drummer with the same desire, humour and passion for their music as they had, and it didn’t take long before they found themselves the ideal man.

 

Following a chance meeting at a Claytown Troupe gig, ZP and Phil found they got along famously and once Phil had heard the album, he was in!

 

ZP Theart:

“We hadn’t even started to look for a drummer yet but the first time I saw Phil playing, I knew he was the man for us. He’s a great guy, really easy to work with and fitted straight into the band at first practice, & we’re stoked he’s now part of the I AM I team”

I Am I have now signed a world-wide publishing deal through Sony/ATV Music. 

“I Am I are an incredibly exciting band. It’s great to be involved from the very beginning. Event Horizon is – a brilliant album & there’s no limit to what these guys can achieve.”

Their main stage show at Bloodstock on August 11th will be their first big festival performance and with ZP’s incredible voice, charisma and boundless energy being driven forward by a great band,  a fantastic & memorable show is guaranteed.

A very exciting future awaits!
