JOHN SYKES Leaves GRR To Become An Independent Artist

Dear John Sykes fans. We regret to announce that our partnership with Golden Robot Records has ceased.
Unfortunately after the signing, contractual agreements were unfulfilled by Golden Robot Records and there was little attempt to move things forward despite our best efforts and patience. When written contracts revert to unfulfilled verbal promises all integrity in a company becomes lost. We simply cannot work this way.
We want the fans to understand that we are fully aware of the frustration this will cause. We now feel that the best course of action is to release the album under our own control.
The mystery continues - we look forward to a new single in 2020 from John Sykes on @goldenrobotrecords @ Los Angeles/Hollywood California

JOHN SYKES Signs To Aussie Start-up Label Golden Robot Records

Golden Robot Records is very proud to have signed guitar legend and incredible songwriter John Sykes.
John is an English rock guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter who has played with Street-fighter, Tygers of Pan Tang, John Sloman’s Badlands, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, and Blue Murder. Sykes co-wrote the majority of the songs on Whitesnake’s 1987 self-titled album with David Coverdale. John is also a successful solo artist releasing five solo and live albums ranging from the critically acclaimed Nuclear Cowboy to Loveland.
John has had an incredible career starting with Tygers of Pan Tang where he released four albums, including Crazy Nights. He enjoyed short stints in Badlands and Streetfighter before joining Thin Lizzy and featuring on Thunder and Lightening which was the band’s 12th studio album and hit number four on the UK charts.
Most notably, John’s best known work was when he joined the infamous Whitesnake with David Coverdale and co-wrote the 40 million selling Whitesnake which was the band’s self-titled seventh studio album, released in 1987. It produced a major power ballad hit, “Is This Love”, along with the number one hit “Here I Go Again”. The album was a major crossover hit eventually selling over eight million copies in the US alone (and thus going eight times platinum). It peaked at number two on the US Billboard 200 and number eight on the UK Albums Chart. Its success in the US boosted its predecessor, Slide It In, from gold to double platinum status and would see the band receive a nomination for the Brit Award for Best British Group in 1988.
Over the past few years, John has played on numerous albums and released his own albums. His latest record is yet to be titled and will be coming out on GRR in 2019. After a long hiatus since 2004 this album is set to blow the world apart and keep all his old and new fans extremely happy- it will be well worth the wait. So get ready and strap yourself in for the 2019 album of the year. John is back and in full force – stay tuned!
