ETHAN BROSH Confirmed As Direct Support For Upcoming RED DRAGON CARTEL Tour



Guitarist Ethan Brosh is widely considered one of the most promising instrumentalists on the scene, as evidenced by his latest album, 'Live the Dream.' And now, he is set to open for guitar legend Jake E. Lee's band, Red Dragon Cartel, on a nearly month-long tour of North America, kicking off on December 2nd in New York City and wrapping up on December 20th in Baltimore.

"I feel both honored and privileged to once again take my band on tour with one of my all time favorite guitar players, Jake E. Lee!," says Brosh about the upcoming trek. "Jake's playing, writing and overall style have been an influence and an inspiration since the very beginning stages of my guitar playing. We've all been waiting many years to see Jake back on the scene so I feel lucky to be a small part of it on this upcoming tour. I can't wait to be back out there seeing my fans again and doing what I love to do most!"

Mixed by Max Norman (Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth) and featuring the talents of world-class bassist Dave Ellefson, as well as the mastering expertise of Bob Ludwig (Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden), 'Live the Dream' is Brosh's most exciting and ambitious project to date. And the album cover painting by Joe Petagno (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd) is also sure to turn heads.

Issued by Carmine Appice's label Rocker Records LLC, "Live the Dream" is available for purchase via these links:

iTunes -

Amazon -

The buzz continues to build for guitar hero Ethan Brosh, and it will undoubtedly only grow stronger now that a brand new video has been filmed for one of the many standout tracks from his latest album, 'Live the Dream,' titled "Space Invaders." The clip puts Brosh's impressive six-string skills front and center, which can be viewed in the link below.
As Brosh himself explains, "A music video is something that has to go hand in hand with the music that it's associated with. It is part of the art as a whole. It is the image that will stay in the minds of the listeners for as long as they listen to that particular musical piece. When I have a music video done, I take the process almost as seriously as I take my music. A lot of time, energy and attention to detail gets into play when we shoot or edit a video."
And Brosh has nothing but praise for the video's director, Seth C. Brown. "This video was made by Seth C. Brown who can turn any rushed, impossible to shoot scene with bad lighting into a beautiful work of art! I'm very proud of the new video for 'Space Invaders,' and can't wait to make more videos for this record!

TOTO, JUDAS PRIEST & MOTLEY CRUE For Sweden Rock Fest 2015

Late Saturday night, in front of a live audience of 2000 Rockbåten rock cruise passengers, the first acts confirmed for next year's Sweden Rock Festival were announced. 19 out of a total of around 90 acts were presented in a nine minute video trailer which can be seen here:

Mötley Crüe have announced their retirement after December 31st 2015. This summer, their show at Sweden Rock Festival will be their only in Scandinavia.  

Judas Priest have always received a royal welcome by the Sweden Rock audience, so it is no wonder that their only show in Sweden next summer will be played in Sölvesborg. 

Toto have been around for 35 years, but have never played the Sweden Rock Festival. Next summer, the wait is over!

Backyard Babies put their career on ice indefinitely in the spring of 2010. Soon, they will be back with a new album and their return to the stages will begin at Sweden Rock, where the band has never set foot before. "We are absolutely psyched!" comments front man Nicke Borg and guitarist Dregen. 

HammerFallD-A-D and Dark Tranquillity are Sweden Rock audience favourites and we are happy to have them back.  Thrash metal legends Nuclear Assault have not played in Sweden in more than 20 years but are now making their only Scandinavian appearance next year at Sweden Rock. Nearly 40 years have passed since the original line-up of Lucifer's Friend played together. The group were pioneers of heavy 70´s hard rock - now they are reunited. With John Lawton (ex-Uriah Heep) on vocals, of course.

Also announced are The AngelsExciterRock GoddessH.E.A.TWolfThe QuireboysDelainTorsson and Steve n' Seagulls.

YNGWIE MALMSTEEN Announces 2015 Australian Tour

The Very Best from The King of Shred Live on Stage

Yngwie J. Malmsteen has been blowing minds across the globe with his incredible guitar skills and showmanship for over 35 years and in February 2015, Yngwie and his band will be returning to Australia and New Zealand for the first time in a decade to strike awe into the legions of guitar fans.
The Swedish born, but now US based, guitar legend is venerated as one of the founders of the art of guitar shredding. His neo-classical style and the sheer speed of his playing made him the most notable musician in the genre, and he has influenced a new era of music and guitarists alike.
But Yngwie is not known purely for the speed with which his fingers fly up and down the guitar neck. Yes, Malmsteen's playing is fast, but there's a crystal clarity to each of his notes that few can imitate. From his ground breaking early work with Steeler and Alcatraz, through his time alongside Joe Satriani and Steve Vai as a member of G3, to his more recent forays leading the Guitar Gods there are few that can compare to Yngwie J. Malmsteen.
Over more than 25 astounding albums the Grammy nominated Malmsteen has unleashed countless fretboard blistering solos, with both Fender and Marshall honouring him with his own model guitar and amplifier.
Don't miss your chance to see the Master of the Stratocaster live in person, and for those extra dedicated fans there are VIP tickets available granting access to an exclusive Q&A session, and for a few very lucky fans the extremely rare opportunity to meet Yngwie J. Malmsteen in person.
'Far from just being a high-speed and volume artist, his deep knowledge of music theory differentiates him from other shredders.' - High Octane Music News

MELODICROCKFEST 4 - Start & Set Times Updated - Mecca Withdraw

Here are all the set times for MelodicRockFest 4 - now just UNDER TWO WEEKS AWAY!!!
Tickets avalable now for just $20/day -
Tickets purchased now will be held at the venue for collection or buy at the door on the days.
There has unfortunately been one last forced change to the lineup, with Mecca & Kevin Chalfant forced to withdraw.
After a long series of conversations with my great buddy, Mecca's Joe Vana, he confirms the news: 
Joe: "After my surgery three weeks ago I noticed the horse voice I had was not getting better....after consulting two different specialist they determined this can be normal when intubated...and could do long term damage to my chords if I push it too after discussing it intently with Andrew we decided it was best if I cancel our appearance at MRF4....

I have been heavily involved with Andrew on a bunch of different fronts helping him prepare for MRF4, and will continue....I just unfortunately cannot one gig a year and I can't do it....not happy and disappointed doesn't even do justice to how I feel...."

Mecca in my mind is irreplaceable but after careful consideration, there is one young hot band that can at least step in at the last minute and I think very much impress folks.
That band is Eighty Six Happiness - featuring Joey Vana, son of Joe and part of MRF3's Mecca lineup.
These guys are going to join the Melodicrock Records family, and I believe in their material and ability 100%, so please show them some love.

THE DEAD DAISIES Announce New Aus and NZ Tour Dates

The Dead Daisies announce new single, 
Australian headline shows and NZ dates with Jimmy Barnes
The Dead Daisies - street scene
(September 18, 2014) � Contemporary classic rockerss, The Dead Daisies, are set to hit the road again and do a number of huge shows across Australia and New Zealand in November and December, along with releasing a second single, "Angel In Your Eyes", from their Face I Love EP.  
The Dead Daisies will headline shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Sydney, as well as a much-anticipated performance in Perth for all their West Aussie fans, playing one show in each city.  The band is also excited to announce that they will be playing some dates with the legendary Jimmy Barnes as special guests on the NZ leg of his upcoming tour.  

After a mind-blowing couple of months touring across the USA and performing to massive crowds in excess of half a million people over the summer, with KISS and Def Leppard in August, and Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd during July, The Dead Daisies are looking forward to getting over to New Zealand with Jimmy Barnes, in late November, before heading home back across the Tasman to play 5 shows in Australia, adding to what has already been an extraordinary year for the band.

"I’m super excited to head back to Australia and to visit some new places!  Playing shows with Jimmy Barnes is always fun and it’s always really inspirational. I enjoy touring with those’s a real family vibe.  Can’t wait to be back in Australia and play some new songs for our fans there!" - Richard Fortus

Set for release in late October is "Angel In Your Eyes", the second single from their latest EP, Face I Love.  "Angel In Your Eyes" is an epic, guitar-fuelled song, accompanied by Stevens powerful vocals, with drums and keys also hitting the mark.

"When the drums kick in you can’t help but start nodding your head to the beat, just before the heavy hi hat rolls in, making the song feel much louder as the vocals ride over the top. The vocals are superb on this EP and Jon Stevens has a naturally soulful voice with a broad range.  Again the keyboards are instrumental in this song providing that subtle melody which is becoming a trade mark of this band." - Rock'n'Load review of "Angel In Your Eyes", Sep 15

MICHAEL SCHENKER Announces UK Tour Dates

The award-winning, legendary guitarist Michael Schenker will embark on a nationwide UK tour at the Newcastle O2 Academy from 10th December. Tickets are available from the 24 hour box office 0844 478 0898 or from
Schenker will perform tracks from his current studio album "Bridge The Gap" which features the new single "Lord Of The Lost And Lonely".
Four days before his UK tour kicks off, Schenker will headline Planet Rockstock Festival at Trecco Bay in South Wales on Saturday 6th December

Scottish vocalist Doogie White, who co-wrote the album with Schenker, soars across every song, and stamps his enthusiastic personality with every note and phrase. Wayne Findlay adds another dimension to the dynamic, classic Schenker sound with his Dean 7 string guitar and keyboard orchestrations.
Bridge the Gap is a thunderous, explosive collection of brand new songs steeped in shades of dark and light. Musically and lyrically, the new album shows a re-energised guitarist at the top of his game, surrounded by top drawer musicians.

SURVIVOR Cancel All Tour Dates

In the wake of the tragic passing of vocalist Jimi Jamison, Survivor have reportedly cancelled all future tour dates. Nothing has been posted to the band's sites as yet. But this from:
"The latest tour for ’80s rock band Survivor, which was slated to kick off at the Parker Arts, Culture & Events Center (PACE) on Sept. 12, has been canceled after the death of lead singer Jimi Jamison, according to Parker Arts.
It was only after “much deliberation” from band representatives that the tour was nixed, PACE said in a press release this morning. Jamison suffered a heart attack and died on Aug. 31 at the age of 63.
“We are saddened by this tragic news, and our hearts go out to all members of the band and to Jimi’s family,” said Elaine Mariner, Cultural Director for the PACE Center.
Survivor, which began performing in 1977, is the band behind such radio hits as “Eye of the Tiger” and “I Can’t Hold Back.” Jamison joined in 1984 before leaving to start a solo career, then rejoined in 2011. The band played on September 6th in California, and after a two week hiatus, had planned on four US dates, before heading overseas for the European leg of their tour, according to a press release.
In addition to its PACE Center concert, the band has canceled all remaining U.S. and European tour dates in September and October."

'My bags are packed and I'm ready to go; plane ticket to the UK'. check, Acoustic guitar'check, money for beer'r'. Check, EM/MR. BIG fan's?' he said 'Anywhere, everywhere, up and over, sideways, down' theree's no place I 'd rather Rock than with you in the UK.'

In 1985 and 1987 Eric released 'Eric Martin' and 'I'm only fooling myself' solo efforts, which are lathered with Eric's signature soulful voice and candid lyrics. 

In 1988-89, Eric would team up with Billy Sheehan, Pat Torpey and Paul Gilbert to form Mr. Big.  They would enjoy enormous success with the release of 6 studio albums, numerous hit singles and 6 top-selling live cd's. All combined, worldwide sales top the 7 million mark.  Eric's third solo album, 'Somewhere in the middle' was written during the two-year hiatus from Mr. Big and released in 1998 in Asia and Europe.  During the summer of 2001, Eric and the rest of the Mr. Big guys released their last effort, 'Actual Size.' In between promoting and preparing for Mr. Big's 2002 'Farewell Tour', Eric continued to record songs for his fourth solo cd. He promised a return to his 'rawk roots' and he definitely did so with the album, 'I'm Goin' Sane' which gathered excellent critics and was released in Asia, Europe and The US in late 2002. After the success of a Japan tour, a European 'Gods Festival' and a 23 city US tour, Eric decided to go back into the studio to record 'Pure,' a EP that covers his hits in an unplugged and stripped acoustic form.

In early 2004 brought Eric back into the studio to record 'Destroy All Monsters' which would be released in Japan, Europe, The US and the most recent, South America. The album sound is something Eric calls 'Distorted Pop' with a focus on his rock roots.

In 2008 Eric joined forces with an all-star group including Mark Slaughter, The Nelson Brothers, Jack Blades and Kelly Keagy to form the supergroup, Scrap Metal.  Scrap Metal plays shows whenever each guy has some time off of their individual careers.

Mr. Big regrouped with all original members for a worldwide reunion tour in 2009.  They had so much fun that they decided to release a new album. 'What If' dropped in 2010 and reviewers raved about the 4 members creating their original sound with a current feel.  The guys set out on another world tour and are currently writing for their next album.

Moving to more recent times, in 2012, one of the largest rock operas in the world contacted Eric to be featured on their new album.  Avantasia is a German based rock opera born to Edguy front man, Tobias Sammet. Eric traveled for six months with Avantasia covering Asia, Europe, South America and Canada.  Eric has been asked to join the band for their next tour starting at the infamous Waken open-air festival in front of 80,000 concert goers this summer.

'KEEP CALM & UNPLUG Your TV set, your kids, the bullshit.. Don't let life get in the way, EM unplugged in the UK in December'.See you then! '

Ticket prices regionally start from '10.00 (London '15.00). Please check with your local venue box office for further details or visit Eric's official website

August 29th, 2014  - Boston, MA rock band Crash Midnight will be hitting the road this Fall with The Pretty Reckless and Adelitas Way in support of their upcoming debut album 'Lost In The City'.

'Lost In The City' will be release on 11/18 via Bronx Bridge Entertainment/Universal. The album's first single is the track, '151' - about the notorious high proof alcohol of the same name. 'Out of all of our songs, this one has been around the longest,' says front man Shaun Soho. 'It was originally kind of a tongue in cheek party song that ended up taking on a life of its own and becoming one of our most requested songs live so we ended up going back and putting a lot of work into making it into a real song.' '151' erupts with an infectious riff and energy that instantly sweeps the audience up in the debauchery and careens them through a raucous anthem full of everything that rock n' roll is all about and proves Crash Midnight has all the goods to deliver on their hype.

Sep-10 Boston, MA - House of Blues
Sep-12 Washington, DC - The Fillmore Silver Spring

TRIBE OF GYPSIES added to 'De La Tierra' Fonda Theatre show!

TRIBE OF GYPSIES added to DE LA TIERRA Fonda Theatre show!

 August 27, 2014 - Los Angeles, CA based Latin rockers TRIBE OF GYPSIES, featuring guitarist/songwriter Roy Z (BRUCE DICKINSON, HALFORD), have been announced as the supporting act for South American metal all-stars DE LA TIERRA, led by guitarist Andreas Kisser of SEPULTURA fame and drummer Alex Gonzalez (of MANA), on Sunday, August 31 at the Fonda Theatre, 6126 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood CA 90028.  For ticket information go to:
Commented Z: "Needless to say, we're totally stoked to have been added to the bill and we want to thank Andreas and the De La Tierra family for the honor of having us at their L.A. live debut. Andreas and I became bros when I worked on Sepultura's "Kairos" album and I'm very much looking forward to sharing the stage with him on Sunday.  Tribe hasn't done a proper show in L.A. in almost 8 years so we're ready to get down and have some fun.  We will be missing our regular singer Phil (Diamond) who is still back in Greece and won't be able to make this one as everything came together on short notice but we've got our brother German (Briseao) on board so we've got it covered.  We'll be playing a bunch of the old classics and throw in our brand new song "Yeah!" as well; we shot a video for that one which we'll be online shortly so stay tuned for that."
TRIBE OF GYPSIES are currently working on a new studio album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2006's "Dweller on the Threshold."  It is set to feature Roy Z, co-founding member/bassist, Eddie Casillas, and long-time percussionist Elvis Balladares alongside Greek native Phil Diamond (lead vocals), Matt Amper (keyboards), Adam Ponce (drums), and latest addition, percussionist Ino Alvarez (BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB).  The new line-up had its live unveiling on July 26 at Germany's Rock of Ages festival alongside KANSAS, SAXON, TNT, NAZARETH, WISHBONE ASH and others.

OVERDRIVE in Japan ' the tour that almost wasn't...

OVERDRIVE in Japan ' the tour that almost wasn't...

Swedish classic heavy metal band OVERDRIVE are just back from their first Japan tour. A tour that almost ended before it started...

Three days before the band were leaving for Japan, Saturday August 9, they were playing a show in Karlshamn. On the way to the venue, guitarist Janne Stark received a call from drummer Kenta Svensson. Being an actor in a wild west show, he was accidently shot in the hand with a powder gun and badly injured two of his fingers on his right hand making it impossible to play.

Instead of canceling, the band did an acoustic set. Kenta was hoping it would heal before the Japan-trip, but on the Sunday, he received a message from the hand surgeon, he would not be able to play for months, if ever, or even go to Japan. This was a HUGE blow both to Kenta and also the rest of the band.
However, the show had to go on, the band could not cancel the Japan trip! They asked Kenta's son Linus Svensson (Care Of Night) if he could fill in, but unfortunately he had other engagements. The band then asked guitarist Kjell's son Jimmy Lexe (whom Janne had also played with in Locomotive Breath) and also Peter TrumPeter Svensson (Constancia, Mercy, Faith, Locomotive Breath), who both would check the possibility to fill in. Sunday evening Jimmy called and said he could reschedule his engagements, and later on so did Peter. Since Jimmy was first and he's "family" he was in.
Overdrive now only had two days to find Jimmy an air ticket, preferably together with the rest of the band, which they did! Then it was the fact that they had to order and receive a Japan rail pass for Jimmy before the departure two days later! Thanks to Japanspecialisten Sverige it arrived in a registered letter the day before the trip!
Monday the 11th, bassist Pelle Thuresson, guitarist Kjell Jacobsson and Jimmy did a short rehearsal to go through the 14 songs they were to play. On the flight over, on the 13th, Jimmy was only listening to Overdrive. Plugging the songs!
The band arrived in Tokyo late evening on the 14th and the first show in Tokyo was on the 15th. Fortunately Shuji Matsumoto of Rubicon Music had arranged a rehearsal studio, which enabled the band to rehearse for the first time in the morning of the 15th. One rehearsal proved that Jimmy had done an EXCELLENT homework! The band then played a show at Birth Club in Tokyo, at Zeela in Osaka and an in-store unplugged show at the newly opened HMV Record Shop in Shibuya, Tokyo.

About RAVEN:

According to the pages of the various metal media, the labels "LEGENDARY," "INNOVATIVE," "TRUE ORIGINALS," as well as "LUNATICS!" have been rightfully pinned upon RAVEN over the years. In a music scene filled by clones nurtured with a cookie-cutter mentality, the unique personality, power and humor of the three band members has always shone through. The crazed vocals & bass playing of John Gallagher, the full frontal guitar assault of brother, Mark Gallagher, and the punishing polyrhythmic pounding of drummer, Joe Hasselvander, all combine to form a sonic battering ram unique in rock!


From the well documented early days as NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) frontrunners, RAVEN's albums ROCK UNTIL YOU DROP, WIPED OUT and ALL FOR ONE virtually invented both the speed metal and power metal genres - during the trailblazing USA tours of the 80's introducing the States to "Athletic rock" as well as giving opening acts like Metallica and Anthrax their first tours, through the doldrums of the late 80's/early 90's when a grunge obsessed media wrote off so many acts - RAVEN has consistently proved to be both survivors par excellence and in a genre of grim imitation - shown that they are "the real thing". Where so many of their contemporaries have either faded creatively or become parodies of themselves, RAVEN have consistently pushed the envelope while retaining their unique sound and attack - both in the studio & in their true element, onstage!
