"We are very excited to play live again", says Jon Poole. "The set will contain songs from our debut album 'Bleak Strategies' and our brand new album 'One Hyde Park'. We feel that it's a strong set of songs and we're very much looking forward to meeting old and new friends of The Dowling Poole".

One of this year’s shock announcements has been the sensational reunion of The Hellacopters who will, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their debut album Supershitty To The Max!, play a one off exclusive show at Sweden Rock Festival!
Psychout Records / Sound Pollution are also thrilled to announce that the band will release an exclusive vinyl 12".
My Mephistophelean Creed & Don’t Stop Now: 2 tracks written by the band back in 1996 but never made it to an official recording.
Recorded at Nicke Andersson’s "Honk Palace" studio earlier this year, it shows a band who knows exactly what it’s all about. A band that have unshakeable faith in creating magic, pushing boundaries and challenging themselves.
My Mephistophelean Creed is released via Psychout Records / Sound Pollution on June 3rd 2016. Pre-order links will be announced within the next 14 days.
On June 24, Eagle Rock Entertainment will unveil 'Flux', the brand new studio album from celebrated Black Crowes founding member / guitarist, Rich Robinson.
This is the moment 2016 has been building up towards: throughout the year, Eagle Rock Entertainment has released expanded, re-imagined versions of Robinson’s solo albums, including Paper, Through A Crooked Sun, and Woodstock Sessions (on CD and digitally).These re-issues served as a fitting lead-up to Flux.
With Flux, Robinson presents his most accomplished solo album to date: 13 new, original songs that draw deeply on his diverse roots. A blues-rock odyssey straight from Robinson’s soul, the guitarist returned to Applehead Studios in Saugerties, NY, the recording facility that has become his creative hub. Nestled away within Woodstock’s famed artist enclave, Robinson’s work at the studio has yielded Woodstock Sessions, The Ceaseless Sight, and now Flux. “The entire writing and recording process,” explains Robinson, “is the driving force for his creativity. I love being in the recording studio, states Robinson simply. It fuels the desire to create within me. I enjoy watching it unfold. Each development fires another idea and in the end, you have this organically created song that seemingly came out of nowhere. It brings me such joy and peace. It never ceases to amaze me.”
Backed by musicians Matt Slocum (keys), Marco Benevento (keys), Danny Mitchell (keys) Zak Gabbard (bass), Joe Magistro (drums / percussion) and vocalists John Hogg and Danielia Cotton, Robinson transports the listener with a powerful collection of music. From the groove-laden feel of opener The Upstairs Land, the kick of funk via Shipwreck, and the gospel swell of Everything’s Alright, to the emotional build-up of Life and the hearty stomp of closing track Sleepwalker, Flux ebbs and flows through moods, delivering a varied listener experience.
A creative soul through and through, Robinson is not only presenting Flux this year, but his artwork was recently displayed at both Morrison Hotel Gallery in NYC and Truth North Gallery in Canada. In May and June, Robinson will serve as a special guest guitarist for Bad Company. Robinson and Bad Company lead vocalist Paul Rodgers recently met and collaborated on a tribute to Jimmy Page. Rodgers was so impressed with Robinson that he asked him to take part in this special Bad Company US tour. Robinson will also embark on an extensive US solo tour kicking off in July. Additionally, he recently collaborated with Zac Brown on his new album and is also featured on The Way Home -- the final track of producer David Cobba’s concept album Southern Family with gospel choir the Settles Connection.

The band, whose latest studio album ‘American Spring’ was released via Spinefarm in May 2015, recently issued a limited edition clear vinyl LP in support of Record Store Day 2016; titled ‘Live Acoustic At 11th Street Records’, this is a nine-track outing featuring songs such as ‘Fabled World’ & ‘Brandenburg Gate’.
REWS are a young Irish/London based high energy female rock duo sent here to inspire people to be who they are, dance, sing, have fun yet address those deep issues that people face in everyday life. Amen to that right!
Consisting of songstress Shauna Tohill and beat-maker Collette Williams together they’ve been creating a genuine buzz with their brand of ultra-infectious alt rock.
With their last single 'Death Yawn' picking up fantastic support from top radio tastemakers like Steve Lamacq, Radio X’s John Kennedy and Dan O’Connell and Shell Zenner of Amazing Radio, REWS now hit us with another slice of their ultra-catchy alt rock which is freshly feisty yet recalling the raw grunge-punk of bands like The Breeders and Throwing Muses.
Getting a coveted slot at this year’s Great Escape festival in Brighton as well as being championed by various bodies at BBC 1, 6, Radio X and more this is going to be a quick climb to the summit for this talented duo. Shauna has recently toured as guest vocalist with Snow Patrol and as bassist with Darwin Deez and is responsible for one of the most recognizable Irish advert syncs of the last few years with the track ‘Can’t Keep Up’. Collette is also a hugely talented vocalist and session musician and can be seen drumming in the video for Gabrielle Aplin’s current hit single ‘Sweet Nothing’.
Together as REWS they are an incredible creative force, instantly engaging and edgy with such a big sound coming from just these two musicians! New single ‘Shake Shake’ is an exuberant blast of fuzzy awesomeness brimming with emotion. Live, they are a force to be reckoned with, totally blowing away recent audiences with style and substance.

But now it is time to begin our next adventure."
KLOGR (pronounced Key-Log-Are) recently announced that their upcoming third full-length album will be produced by none other than three-time Grammy award-winning producer David Bottrill (Tool, Stone Sour, Muse, Rush).
The band will enter the studio in September 2016.
"I believe that David Bottrill is gifted with a broad and open-minded vision on music." , enthuses Rusty, "The proof of this is that he had worked on some of the most significant albums of very different artists and always creating a great deal of musical empathy. It's an honour for me to have David as the producer of KLOGR's new album."
David Bottrill said, "I chose to work with KLOGR because I liked the music, thought they had great potential and I felt I had something to contribute to the music."

Following on from their successful ‘Karma’ EP, which saw their music move into a much heavier sound, Welsh borders rockers Crowsaw are planning a live album as their next release.
The hard-hitting three piece Rob Lomax (guitar), Mark Pullin (drums) and Glyn Mason(bass) - plan to capture their driving, hook-laden set at The Dolls House, Abertillery on 20th May. And they are putting out a call inviting fans old and new to join the party!
The band’s well-received first album ‘Smoke & Feathers’ (which the band will be giving away free on the night to people coming to the gig with the attached flyer either physically or on their phone) had an addictive heavy blues rock style but ‘Karma’ took things to another level.
“Karma has taken us in a different direction and this has seen our live show develop amore defiant metallic edge,” said Rob Lomax, “it was a new beginning for us and we have completely embraced our new harder attitude. Now is the time to record it and show what a powerhouse we have become!! The Dolls House is a great venue and will provide the perfect atmosphere for us. The crowd is always up for it and we want as many as possible to turn out and get involved.”
So for rock fans looking for a great night out, there’s only one place to be on 20May. All roads lead to The Dolls House. As an added bonus, the evening will also be supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust.
These rock juggernauts, who have shred stages from Poughkeepsie to Norway, release their highly anticipated studio album Relentlesson 3rd June 2016 via Amazing Record Co.
“This record tells the tale of all the musical roads and history we've travelled. I couldn't be more excited and proud to be a part of this first studio album for FOUR BY FATE” says guitarist and vocalist Pat Gasperini.
When the mysterious power of fate helped four rock and roll veterans join forces the result was electrifying. A supergroup of four industry titans, FOUR BY FATE’s lineup consists of: John Regan, Tod Howarth, Rob Affuso and Patrick James Gasperini.
The seeds for the band’s formation were planted in 1986 when John Regan and Tod Howarth were on tour together; Regan playing bass with John Waite and Howarth singing and playing keyboards with Cheap Trick.
The tour brought the pair together as friends and musicians and many months later Regan asked Howarth to join him in Frehley’s Comet, a band fronted by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, the legendary KISS guitarist/singer Ace Frehley.
In 2014, Regan and Howarth join forces again on a new project – FOUR BY FATE. Enter Pat Gasperini, a New York guitarist/singer and prolific songwriter. With a solid east coast resume he adds ripping guitar hero presence and big tunes.Shortly after, the band invite powerhouse percussionist Rob Affuso (Skid Row) to complete the final foursome.
Adding further rock pedigree, other contributors to the FOUR BY FATE story include Stet Howland (drummer for WASP), Sean Kelly (guitarist for Helix and Nelly Furtado) and AJ Pero (drummer from Twisted Sister), who recorded six tracks on the album before he tragically passed away in early 2015 – this is thought to be his last recording.
Tod Howarth adds “we are not only thrilled with the end result in ‘Relentless’ we are already looking forward to the next CD”
Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt of Status Quo are delighted to announce another great double act! They have teamed up with a pair of great British producers to create a duo of classic drinks: the Dog Of Two Head ale and the Down Down cider. Both will offer a refined pedigree, based on character and tradition; qualities that define Status Quo. Both Dog Of Two Head and Down Down are being made available, bottled, nationally through the Spar chain from 18th May. Dog Of Two Head will be available to buy on draught at selected outlets from June. Down Down has been selected for Wetherspoon’s National Cider Festival which runs from Friday 8th July.
Dog Of Two Head ale was created in conjunction with Hobsons Brewery in Shropshire, Down Down cider is crafted by the Celtic Marches company in Herefordshire. The band have been involved in the brewing process and cider making right from the off, visiting the facilities, working with each of the relevant teams in choosing the individual elements that give each product their satisfying and refreshing quality and even spending a day harvesting apples for the cider.
Francis Rossi said, “We know what we like. And we know what our fans like. And I think we can all agree that we like these!” Rick Parfitt added, “It’s no secret that over the years the band has enjoyed a drink or three. Finally, we’re actually seeing a return on those wasted hours by creating something useful. We love it!”
Dog Of Two Head is a chestnut amber traditional ale, with a modern citrus twist delivered by the British hops. This is a subtle ale deftly uniting and balancing the influences of malt, hops and natural bitterness. Dog is created by Hobsons from British malting barley, and a blend of UK-grown Fuggles, Challenger, Goldings and Progress hops.
Down Down is beautifully-rounded golden, medium cider, with a well-balanced finish. Drawing on generations of heritage and expertise, Down Down is made with the finest fresh-pressed cider apples which are grown on the Celtic Marches family farm. The cider will be available in three formats: Carbonated in 500ml bottles and 30 Litre keg, and Still in 20 Litre boxes.
Status Quo are a band that are known for delivering creativity, entertainment and consistency at the highest level, and in that they feel a kinship with their chosen partners on this Drinks range. The band have already proved that they know this market, launching the Piledriver beer brand, which went on to sell over a million and a half pints in the UK alone! This ale and cider are sure to be enjoyed by Quo fans, but also by anyone who loves a great British product.
