TURBOWOLF confirm Death From Above 1979 support and April headline tour Print E-mail
Wednesday, 17 December 2014 18:32



British alt-rockers TURBOWOLF are one of the most thrilling and exhilarating live acts on the planet right now, as their sold-out headline show at Dingwalls last week proved beyond any doubt.


After the storming success of their recent tour with Royal Blood and the 'Download Freezes Over' headline tour, the Bristolian groovemeisters are getting back on the road to promote their forthcoming new album, 'Two Hands', with a 12-date tour across the UK and Europe supporting Death From Above 1979, and a string of headline dates across the UK in April.


'Two Hands' is a master class in taking rock music to the outer limits and creating something truly unique. Stuffed to the gills with grooves, riffs and rhythms to make you lose your mind it reaches deep into the secret history of mankind, ponders the wonders of evolution and even includes references to the government's mysterious mind control program, 'MK Ultra'.


From the slow and sludgy Black Sabbath-esque chugs of 'Pale Horse', to the relentless, frantic beats of 'American Mirrors' and 'Rich Gift', to the more laid-back, trippy sounds of 'Invisible Hand' and 'Toy Memaha', Turbowolf have delivered an album of unassailable sonic adventure, with an abundance of eclectic electronics, throbbing bass, bruising drums, fizzing guitars and the kind of vocals from singer Chris Georgiadis, that have you believe he's singing for his very survival.


And in amongst the far-reaching eccentricities that Turbowolf have made their own, the band have an impeccable ear for a hit with current single 'Rabbits Foot' eating up the airwaves with huge support at Radio 1, and the likes of 'Solid Gold', and 'Nine Lives' delivering the kind of twisted melodies that will have your head spinning for days.


After spending most of 2013 writing the album, the band took to the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales to record it in a frenzied six weeks, breaking every rule they could in the search for sonic excellence. The result is an absolutely incredible body of work, co-produced with Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Band of Skulls, Opeth).


'Two Hands' will be the first official release from Turbowolf after they signed to Universal Music as the first band announced under the joint venture between Spinefarm Records and Search & Destroy back in November. Their next UK tour will see them step up from eccentric cult favourites to the rock 'n' roll heroes of 2015.


Great Britain - prepare yourselves for the musical apocalypse that is Turbowolf. The band are standing on the cusp of great things, ready to spread their wings and fly!

LSkyn AlbumMockups1


Universal will release LYNYRD SKYNYRD's incredible studio and live LPs originally released between 1973 and 1977, brought together in a beautiful box set for the very first time, on 26th January.


Each LP will have exact reproductions of original artwork to retain authenticity, and will be pressed to 180 gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl and contained in a rigid slipcase box.

The band rose to worldwide recognition on the basis of its driving live performances and signature tunes 'Sweet Home Alabama' and 'Free Bird'. At the peak of their success, three members died in an airplane crash in 1977, putting an abrupt end to the band's most popular incarnation.

LOSTALONE release final ever video for 'Crusaders' Print E-mail
Wednesday, 17 December 2014 18:22



Derby's epic-stadium-alt-rock-pop trio LOSTALONE may have taken the sad decision to call it day come the end of 2014, but the threesome can now unveil their final ever music video for the wonderful 'Crusaders'.


Frontman Steven Battelle: "Crusaders is one of my favourite songs I've written so it seems fitting that this will be the final LostAlone release. Listen to the lyrics, they're a victory for the pursuit of a dream and a goodbye at the same time."


Despite releasing the artistic high-point of their career this year in the form of third album, 'Shapes Of Screams', and despite remaining the firmest of friends, situations around the band have made continuing as LostAlone untenable.


The band will play a final hometown show on 19th December, with an intimate final London show the night before on the 18th, both are now sold out.

DEVO's 'Hardcore Live!' coming to DVD, Blu-ray, CD and Vinyl in February Print E-mail
Wednesday, 17 December 2014 18:20

DEVO's 'Hardcore Live!' is coming to DVD, Blu-ray, CD and Vinyl on February 10th.




DEVO was among the most thought-provoking bands to emerge in the aftermath of punk, but before hits like 'Whip It', they worked in the basements and garages of Akron, Ohio to make raw, unfiltered music that the group called "Hardcore DEVO".


In the summer of 2014, DEVO did ten shows performing these seminal pre-fame songs, created between 1974 and 1977 and rarely played since then. Shot at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California, this exciting concert film captures these groundbreaking artists performing the songs that started it all, interwoven with interviews revealing the history of the band. In total, these 21 oddities serve as a tribute to departed, original DEVO bandmate, Robert "Bob 2" Casale.


A special screening event will be held on Saturday, January 17th at 7:30 PM at the Egyptian Theatre (6712 Hollywood Boulevard - Hollywood, CA 90028). A discussion with director Keirda Bahruth, coproducer Rick Ballard, and DEVO members Mark Mothersbaugh, Gerald V. Casale, and Bob Mothersbaugh will follow.

RIVAL SONS to return to the UK in 2015 for March/April headline shows Print E-mail
Tuesday, 16 December 2014 18:25



Long Beach, California's RIVAL SONS are currently winding up the UK leg of their European tour, and are delighted to announce they will be heading back in March and April 2015 which will see them headline the prestigious Roundhouse in London.  


Tickets go on sale THURSDAY 18TH DECEMBER 2014 – 10AM.


The band recently performed on Later With Jools Holland, following another TV appearance in the USA on the Late Show with David Letterman and a phenomenal performance at the star-studded Classic Rock Roll of Honour awards in LA. They also fitted in a last minute support slot with Lenny Kravitz at Wembley Arena.


With elements of psychedelia and more than a nod to soul, the new RIVAL SONS album 'Great Western Valkyrie' received rave reviews when it was released earlier this year. It was rated the No.1 album of 2014 by Classic Rock magazine as well as hitting the Top 20 albums of the year in Kerrang magazine. This, their fifth record in as many years, saw the band yet again recording live in Nashville, using '50s gear borrowed from Sun studios, acknowledging their heritage, but always having their eyes and ears focussed on the 21st Century.


There will be a new RIVAL SONS single in January 2015. 'Good Things' is a stroll through the land of possibilities that highlights the soulful melodies of enigmatic singer Jay Buchanan, shows off the signature guitar tones of Scott Holiday whilst the powerhouse rhythm section of Michael Miley on drums and the sultry grooves of Dave Beste on bass pin the whole song down.

EXTREME celebrates 25th anniversary of 'Extreme II: Pornograffitti' with deluxe reissue Print E-mail
Tuesday, 16 December 2014 18:21

EXTREME will celebrate the 25th anniversary of 'Extreme II: Pornograffitti' with a deluxe edition reissue on February 9th, 2015 via UMC/Polydor.


The deluxe edition reissue includes a full second album of rare mixes and B-sides re-mastered from the original tapes, and is scheduled for release on February 9th, 2015. The original album, which went double platinum in the U.S. with more than two million sold, cracking the Billboard 200 Top 10, featured the chart-topping single 'More Than Words', the Top 5 'Hole Hearted' and the rock radio standout 'Get The Funk Out', which included vocals by Pat Travers. Dweezil Zappa, (whose solo album guitarist Nuno Bettencourt was about to produce) added some guitar riffs to 'He-Man Woman Hater' when the band recorded some of the album at Scream Studios in Studio City, CA.


The band will tour in 2015, playing the multi-platinum album front to back.




'Extreme II: Pornograffitti (A Funked Up Fairy Tale)' first came out on A&M Records in August 1990, the follow-up to the band's 1989 debut. The album is considered, according to the newly penned liner notes by Metal Hammer's Malcolm Dome contained in the accompanying booklet, as the "definitive album" of the band's career.


"This was the album where we found ourselves," says vocalist Gary Cherone. "Our first album showed us to be the bastard sons of Queen, Aerosmith and Van Halen. But on the second record, we discovered our style and sound."


Bettencourt was instrumental in initially composing the original songs, leaving Cherone alone to write the lyrics, which Cherone describes as "a coming of age tale about an innocent boy who is growing up and exposed to sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll."


Bettencourt himself doesn't see the disc as a concept album, but admits in the liner notes; "I suppose what happened was a little like writing a play, and then trying to make sure the songs fit into the plot."


Among the collectibles on the second disc of the package are a B-side a cappella version of 'More Than Words', rare B-sides 'Nice Place to Visit' and 'Sex N' Love' and 7" and 12" remixes of 'Get The Funk Out'.


The album has come to define the band's career. "I still constantly have musicians say to me that the album meant so much to them, and that proves what an impact it had. Its success established us as a major band," recalls 'decadent drummer' Paul Geary.


"We came into our own on this album," admits bassist/vocalist Pat Badger. "We honed in on our hard rock sound. The songs were riff-driven yet also had a little funk groove. But we were still diverse, which has always been one of our trademarks."


"It seems like another lifetime to me," says Bettencourt, "I listen to it, and I can criticize some things. But I am still proud of it. And so many fans do still say it's their favorite album."

SATYRICON announce pair of UK shows for April 2015 Print E-mail
Monday, 15 December 2014 17:52

SATYRICON have announced 'The Dawn Of A New Age Tour 2015', which includes a pair of shows in England.


SATYRICON's last tour, 'World Europa 2013' was a phenomenal success, with the band securing a record amount of sold-out shows in support of their most recent, self-titled album. This new run, 'The Dawn Of A New Age' tour celebrates the release of the band's upcoming deluxe double CD/DVD box set, 'SATYRICON - Live At The Opera' which is set for a March 2015 release. The set will also be available on a vinyl format.




'SATYRICON - Live At The Opera' was recorded and filmed at a unique evening at the Norwegian National Opera House and saw the band performing with the renowned Norwegian National Opera chorus. This tour will be SATYRICON's only European tour in 2015, with the band taking a break from touring in 2014, so is not to be missed.


Frontman and band visionary Satyr informs us; "I want to do this tour to complete the circle on the 'SATYRICON' album and get behind the 'Live At The Opera' set, which is as far away from a conventional live album as you can get. I also want to share that experience with our fans in our "hometown", Europe. 'Live At The Opera' came out brilliantly and while this is to be released soon, we are actually working on two more records simultaneously. 'The Dawn Of A New Age 2015' tour is a great arena for us to play some out of the ordinary shows. We plan on playing songs that we never play live, we plan on doing live jam sessions, and we want this to be a real 'event', not just a tour supporting the release of an album. We don't play as many live shows as we used to and we like it that way. These days we spend a lot of time in our studio and music has never felt so good. In 2015, you will get to see the beginning of the new SATYRICON which is a band that is waving goodbye to the pre-set formulas of the music industry. You can't vote on songs for us to play, there won't be any lame sponsors, but if you play an instrument particularly well, get in touch with us and come jam with us on stage - or you can just enjoy watching. This tour is to celebrate our relationship with our fans. I think this has the potential of being our best tour ever and I know it's going to be absolutely fantastic."


The UK dates are as follows:
Tue 7th Apr - MANCHESTER Sound Control
Wed 8th Apr - LONDON Scala


Tickets are on sale now, priced £15.50 for Manchester and £17.50 for London (subject to booking fee) and are available from


THE ALMIGHTY's 'RE-F**KIN'-ISSUES' to finally get RE-F**KIN'-LEASED! Print E-mail
Monday, 15 December 2014 17:49



'Blood, Fire & Love' (first released in 1989) and 'Soul Destruction' (first released in 1991) - the first two reissues from THE ALMIGHTY - will be made available via Spinefarm Records on February 9th 2015.


Every effort has been made to make these new versions as complete as possible - a celebration of the early work of a band (formed in Scotland in 1988) who have long been regarded as highly influential to the UK metal scene, splicing elements of rock, punk & full-tilt metal, and notching up a Top 5 UK album and successive Top 30 singles.


Musically, The Almighty staked their ground between Motörhead and 'Electric'-era Cult, which made their early Polydor releases - five albums, starting with 'Blood, Fire & Love' - a breath of fresh air for riff-hungry rock fans the world over; and now, with their reputation continuing to flourish, Spinefarm has taken over from Polydor (the band's original home) as the label co-ordinating the re-issue campaign…


The initial batch of re-issues (fully official and put together under strict band supervision) will appear beneath the 'RE-F**KIN'-ISSUES' banner and be divided into two parts - the first pair of titles coming out on February 9th 2015 and the following releases later that year.


All of the re-issues will come complete with extensive bonus content, including live, studio, remix and acoustic recordings, plus liner notes, special packaging and comments from Almighty main-man Ricky Warwick, now fronting Black Star Riders.


*'Blood, Fire & Love' is a 3 disc set, including the 'Blood, Fire & Live' on-the-road album, plus a disc of ‘rarities’, including 3 demo recordings.


*'Soul Destruction' is a 2 disc set, with Disc 2 including B-side material, plus live and acoustic tracks.
