December 7th

the Cable Factory, Helsinki

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

 2013 has been yet another busy year for Michael Monroe. The band completed its long awaited successor to the previous SENSORY OVERDRIVE album and the man has been working on several TV-projects and not forgetting, of course, touring, which has continued steadily through the year. HORNS AND HALOS was released in August, and it presented a more punky and straightforward Monroe.The “Horn and Halos” tour reached rainy Helsinki on December 7’th and the band, which now consists of Monroe, bassist Sam Yaffa, drummer Karl Rockfist and guitarists Steve Conte and Rich Jones, offered a great two hour set of energetic rock without any needless gimmicks. It’s time to “Rock like F**k!”

MICHAEL MONROE Premieres New Single And Video For “Stained Glass Heart”

November 13th, 2013

Michael_Monroe

MICHAEL MONROE, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, über-energetic frontman and iconic rock ‘n’ roll legend, has premiered the new video for “Stained Glass Heart” on GUITARWORLD.com “Stained Glass Heart” marks the third single from his new studio album HORNS AND HALOS, out now on Spinefarm Records.

“I’m feeling quite excited about our new ‘Stained Glass Heart’ video,” explains MICHAEL MONROE. “It was shot in Helsinki at an amusement park on a perfectly grey and rainy day which made it look more like an ‘abusement park.’  The video turned out very cool and classy.”

Watch the clip on GUITARWORLD.com here: http://tinyurl.com/ll5r4mx

On the live front, MICHAEL MONROE has revealed plans for an extensive world tour. After a three-date trek in Japan, a headlining U.K. tour will begin November 27 in Newcastle and the group will also appear at this year’s Hard Rock Hell festival on November 30 in North Wales. Following the U.K. run, the group will perform three shows in their home country of Finland.  MICHAEL adds, “Now that the new album is out, we can finally play the new songs live and create a whole new set-list. That’s why I’m especially excited about the up and coming tour dates.  See you all soon down the road!” Expect more dates and countries to be announced soon.

HORNS AND HALOS is the follow-up to the 2011 critically acclaimed Sensory Overdrive, winner of Classic Rock Magazine’s “Album Of The Year” and a No. 1 record in MONROE’s Finnish homeland. It is a cosmopolitan affair, mixed by Petri Majuri at Seawolf Studios in Finland and written and recorded around the world by MONROE’s international posse–bassist SAMI YAFFA (Hanoi Rocks, New York dolls), guitarist STEVE CONTE (New York Dolls, Company Of Wolves), drummer KARL “Rockfist” ROSQVIST (Chelsea Smiles, Danzig) and Swedish guitar star DREGEN (Backyard Babies).  MONROE is a frontman whose reputation is genuinely global and whose influence continues to be felt, with musicians  of all ages (from Dave Grohl  to the original Guns  N’ Roses members) citing his groundbreaking career as a source of inspiration.

The album’s first single released earlier this spring, “Ballad Of The Lower East Side,” is a nod to MICHAEL’s early days in New York, a city he moved to for a decade following the mid-’80s breakup of glam-punk pioneers Hanoi Rocks (for which he was the frontman).  It also appears on HORNS AND HALOS.  Watch the video for “Ballad Of The Lower East Side” at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhAbtZXu2RU

MICHAEL MONROE

Hartwall Arena, Helsinki

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

Legendary guitar hero Slash appeared in Finland for the second time as a solo artist, this time in Hartwall Arena in Helsinki. Slash released his second solo album LOVE APOCALYPTIC LOVE last May and it also features Slash’s longtime touring band members: vocalist Myles Kennedy, drummer Brent Fitz and bassist Todd Kerns. The new album has not only been a sales success, but critics have also generously praised the disc. The success of this album and ongoing tour has proved that ex Guns’n Roses guitarist is doing great on his own without the burdens of the past.

MICHAEL MONROE

REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Year 2012 was another great one for Michael Monroe. The band did shows in U.S, South America, Sweden and they played numerous shows in Finland including all the biggest festivals. Lately the band has been working on the follow up for highly successful SENSORE OVERDRIVE and the album should be out in early 2013. The band returned to Helsinki and Club Tavastia on early December and played three sold out shows in a row. These gigs were the last ones of the SENSORE OVERDRIVE –tour which lasted over one and half years.

REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Michael Monroe finally released his long awaited studio album SENSORY OVERDRIVE. Despite this, the band spend the whole last year performing across the globe band now started another tour to support its new release. The new album has received excellent reception here in Finland. It was number one in the official album list here and that’s something, I’m not 100% sure about this, but it’s something that the re-united Hanoi Rock’s was never able to reach with its three albums. For sure it wasn’t an easy thing for Michael to decide to quit Hanoi Rocks but the success of this new album does prove that it was after all a right decision

RUISROCK FESTIVAL – Slash, Ozzy Osbourne, Michael Monroe

August 4th, 2010

RUISROCK FESTIVAL 2010

9 – 11’th of JULY, TURKU, FINLAND

 REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Ruisrock celebrated its 40th anniversary in sunny Ruissalo. Although the festival lineup included mostly domestic artists, there were lots of interesting foreign names as well such as the legendary Ozzy Osbourne, former Guns’n Roses guitarist Slash, Arch Enemy, and Amon Amarth represented the heavier side while there were also a long list of bands from pop, punk, prog and alternative worlds as well. Such names as: Billy Talent, Canned Heat, NOFX, Flogging Molly and the Sounds show clearly how versatile the festival Ruisrock is and that mix seems to work out well. Altogether there were over 70,000 visitors in Ruisrock during three days.
