LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- DOWN 'N' OUTZ, the project headed up by Def Leppard frontman and 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Joe Elliott, are set to release their third studio album, This Is How We Roll, on October 11, 2019 (UMe).
 
The band, featuring The Quireboys' Paul Guerin (Guitar), Guy Griffin (Guitar) and Keith Weir (keyboards), plus Share Ross (Bass, ex Vixen) and Phil Martini (drums, Wayward Sons), takes a different approach on This Is How We Roll to their previous album. This new album only features one cover version (The Tubes "White Punks On Dope) - alongside eleven original Joe Elliott penned tracks.
 
Guitarist Guy Griffin says, "(This Is How We Roll) is absolutely fantastic, probably one of the best records I've worked on. It doesn't sound like Leppard or the first two Down n Outz records. It's kind of all the stuff Joe grew up with, a lot of piano type stuff, a bit Elton John, one track a bit 10cc, a couple of good rockers… a real mix of stuff. Joe's voice sounds amazing and it's great fun to do."
 
Joe Elliott says, "Boy, has this has been a long time coming?! Recorded in infrequent bursts of activity over a 5-year period whenever our respective motherships allowed, I'm extremely proud of what we've achieved with this album. I'm blessed to have worked with such a superb bunch of musicians on this collection of songs. To a man, and woman (!), they completely got my vision of what I wanted us to convey on this record & as usual, working with a world class producer/engineer in Ronan McHugh has guaranteed the sound of the record to be top notch! I couldn't be more proud."
 
Along with the announcement of the new studio album, Down 'n' Outz also release the rock out of title track and lead single "This Is How We Roll", available to listen to HERE.
 
From breathless opener "Another Man's War" to the lush "Last Man Standing", to the epic six minute "Let It Shine", this is an album that draws on all the influences that have shaped both Joe Elliott and the previous Down 'n' Outz albums to create a stunning collection of original songs. This Is How We Roll was produced by Joe Elliott with co-production by Ronan McHugh. The album was recorded at Joe Elliott's own studio Joe's Garage.
 
The album will be available on CD, LP, digitally and also on limited edition 12" Picture Disc LP. This Is How We Roll is now available to pre-order via: https://DownNOutz.lnk.to/ThisIsHowWeRoll
 
The Down 'n' Outz project was born in 2009 when Mott The Hoople reformed and asked long-time friend and fan Joe Elliott to get involved. Joe formed the Down 'n' Outz with Paul, Guy, Keith and Phil. Together they looked to bring songs by Mott The Hoople and spin off projects of Mott, Ian Hunter and British Lions to a wider audience.
 
In 2009 Down 'n' Outz supported Mott The Hoople at one of the band's five Hammersmith Apollo shows. The fan interest eventually led to the band looking to put together an album and 2011 saw the release of the critically acclaimed debut My Re-Generation through Mailboat Records (Joe Perry, Walter Becker, Chris Isaak, Jeff Bridges). My Re-Generation included the singles "England Rocks" and "Overnight Angels," that reached No. 4 and No. 1 respectively on the U.S. Media Base Rock chart -keeping Eric Clapton's new single off the top of the chart for 2 weeks. The band then released a live DVD taken from those initial shows called Live at Hammersmith Apollo. A second studio album The Further Adventures of… was released in 2014 and featured the single "Rock and Roll Queen". New bassist Share Ross (Vixen) debuted on 2017's live album and DVD The Further Live Adventures Of…
 
A stunning live act - having toured with the likes of Paul Rogers across the UK (Including The Royal Albert Hall) and festival performances including High Voltage and Planet Rockstock, Down 'n' Outz are planning live dates to support This Is How We Roll.

DOWN 'N OUTZ TO RELEASE New LIVE Album: "The Further Live Adventures Of...." December 1, 2017
Re-Issues of "My Re-Generation" + "The Further Adventures Of...." also set for December 1, 2017
 
Instant Grat Track, "Overnight Angels" Available with Preorder of Live Album; Video Out Now - https://youtu.be/lDq1wXTAvhg
 
Down 'n' Outz are pleased to announce the release of a brand new live album "The Further Live Adventures Of ..." on December 1st, via Frontiers Music Srl. The live album, recorded in Sheffield Corporation in December 2014, will be available 2CD/DVD, Blu-ray, vinyl and digital. In addition, on the same day, the band will reissue their previous records "My Re-Generation" and "The Further Adventures Of ..." on CD, LP and Digital.
 
The Down 'N' Outz is the project founded and fronted by Def Leppard's Joe Elliott and backed by members of The Quireboys, Wayward Sons and Raw Glory. The band pays tribute to rock legends Mott The Hoople and was established from the most unusual of circumstances ... in the words of Joe Elliott:  "When Mott The Hoople announced they were reforming for a week's worth of shows at the Hammersmith Odeon I was asked that I participate in some capacity. They've always been my favourite band and it's nice to see the rest of the rock world finally catch up and give them their due."

"But, what was I to do? It was suggested to me that the Quireboys would be up for offering their services. This was perfect! A fan since their first album, I loved the idea of working with a band as enthusiastic to do this as I was. I decided that the thing to do was play some songs that like-minded people thought they would never hear live again, if ever, songs by spin offs of Mott the Hoople - songs by Mott, Ian Hunter and British Lions. Songs that are close to my heart, songs that I've played every week for the best part of 35 years on record, cassette, CD, iPod and now live."

The Down 'N Outz supported Mott The Hoople at one of their legendary 2009 reformation shows at Hammersmith Odeon. Following a rapturous reception, the one night project took on a life and energy of its own and an album project was born.
 
The band then decided to record an album, "My Re-Generation" produced by Elliott and Ronan McHugh (Def Leppard), which was recorded in Elliott's personal studio with basic tracking done at Moor Hall studio Bedfordshire by engineer Chris Corney. The album featured entirely covers of songs by artists related to Mott the Hoople, such as Mott, British Lions and Ian Hunter.
 
The band made an appearance at the 2010 High Voltage Festival in the UK, launched their own branded beer, and also announced it would be performing with Paul Rodgers in April 2011 as the opening act on the latter's UK tour.
 
On 21 April 2014, Down 'n' Outz released their second studio album, The Further Adventures Of... Critically acclaimed Classic Rock wrote:"Further Adventures raises the bar for Mott The Hoople covers while giving timeless songs a new lease of life, as classics deserving of a new audience."
 
In addition to Joe Elliott (Vocals/Guitar/Keyboards), the band features The Quireboys' Paul Guerin (Guitar), Guy Griffin (Guitar), Keith Weir (keyboards), drummer Phil Martini (Wayward Sons) and bassist Share Ross (Vixen). "The Further Live Adventures Of...." will be released on 2CD/DVD, Blu-Ray, vinyl and digital on December 1st, via Frontiers Music Srl.
