Merry Xmas & Happy New Year : thank you for 2009

We want to take this opportunity to wish all our fans, friends & families a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. We've had an amazing 2009 & made many new friends. Some highlights - the release of our latest album "VR", the 20 date UK tour with Blaze Bayley, SOS Festival, the Bulldog Bash, Hellfire Festival, tour dates in Greece & Switzerland, UK tour with Michael Schenker Group.

Looking forward to 2010 & especially pleased to be confirmed for Hammerfest in March.

We've started writing for our next record & the outline of 3 or 4 songs at least is ready. We expect to start recording around the middle of 2010 & release in late Summer/early Autumn. Plenty of tour dates being planned & more news as soon as possible in the new year.

Thanks once again for supporting & helping us in an incredible 2009.

See you out there very soon!

MSG Tour : so far so good

Well, last night was the first night of the tour with Michael Schenker Group & what a fantastic start. A Manchester sell-out crowd turned up & we thank each & every one of you that supported us, the welcome we received was world class!

All went off well, the night opened by the quality of power metallers Powerquest who had to "lever" all 6 band members onto a tight stage area, plus guest vocalist on one song, making 7 people in-all at that point .... cosy! Then we stepped up, with a little more freedom to move around as a 3-piece which has a definite advantage at these times! Following our intro music "The Last Invention" we powered through "VR", "The Hostage", "Brotherhood" & our customary set-closer "Death By Lightning", with the crowd now in positive mood ready for Mr.Schenker to take the stage.

Thanks again, great night & a great start to the tour. Snapshot taken as above but some rather better quality photos to come courtesy of the maestro with the camera Neil Pilkington. We also have some video footage that will make its' way onto YouTube before too long.

Next up Sheffield tonight. Bring it on! Can't wait.

Back from Greece, it's Switzerland next!

We arrived back from Greece last night & with little more than 24 hours back on home soil, we fly to Switzerland tomorrow, ready to play the fantastic Club Z7 on Saturday, supporting the mighty Blaze Bayley. Greece was an absolute blast, with highs & lows as always with touring & we have lots to tell. No real time to tell our stories right now but next week when we have chance to catch up properly when we'll be back with more news, some video footage & of course "Scootergate"!?.... don't know what that is? Check out Blaze Bayley's blog or the news at Rock Radio Manchester, Blabbermouth or several other music websites where the latest stories are available. So, it's Switzerland first, then a big catch up & all getting ready for the Michael Schenker tour which starts in Manchester on 16th December. Good times / happy days. Thanks all & especially right now thanks to all those crazy Greek metal-head-banging bastards! \m/ You were awesome!

Today's the day - our new album "VR" is officially released. The press reviews so far are almost universally good/great. The reaction from fans has been superb - thank you! We're proud to finally get the album out there. We recorded it back in January & it took this long time to line everything up to get to release date. Big thanks to our label, Rocksector Records, for grafting behind the scenes to help us make this happen.

Have you got a copy? If not we currently suggest as both HMV & Play have sold out on pre-orders. They'll be getting the album back in but for the time being Amazon have stock available. Here's a link :-

Also, the new "VR" T-shirts are now available from the band's website at Here's an image to give you a good idea what they look like, with Mark Wilkinson's amazing album cover design on the front, then the band name & album track listing on the back. Hope you like!

SOS Festival / end of the Blaze Bayley Tour

Hi again & what a last few days we've had. We were of course down in Plymouth at the White Rabbit where we played the last "conventional" date with Blaze Bayley on the UK tour, then travelled through the night back to Manchester for the truly final &
20th date of the tour : SOS Festival on Saturday. Now this one was special. At Radcliffe Civic with a fine audience totalling 300+ we rocked out alongside some other excellent bands including our labelmates Decadenze & Nightvision, & of course Blaze Bayley. Immense thanks to Blaze for having us on this tour. He's influenced us in various ways & we believe we're definitely a better band for it. A fantastic opportunity & a pleasure. Very sad that the tour ends but it was in fine style. The atmosphere & sense of occasion at SOS was truly awesome. A packed house, great bands & great excitement. Big thanks to the organisers, our label Rocksector Records, & to all the fans for their huge support - especially those of you that have bought & received the new album "VR" in the past few days. Official release date is tomorrow
(13th July) but in addition to those of you who bought the album at SOS we understand at least one of the big retail stores got the album out to you a few days early & so far the feedback has been excellent.

Bideford & Oswestry

Travelling as we do, we get used to putting a few miles in, but last weekend was quite a biggie. Setting off from our native Manchester early on Friday morning we made our way down to Bideford, Devon. Felt a bit like going on holiday really, especially when we arrived to find Bideford is a very nice little seaside town, with the hot sunny weather adding to that summer holiday feeling. After squeezing our van down some very small cobbled streets we got into the venue (Palladium Club), greeted by promoter Ray & set about the usual load-in & soundchecks, with one eye on the tennis semi-final as Andy Murray made his exit from Wimbledon. We're not really into tennis but the locals seemed engrossed so we entered into the spirit.

The local support band was Hailing Star who did a fine job, also bringing a bus-load who shouted & supported their guys' set with great passion & enthusiasm, & rightly so. So we had our work cut out & glad to say we had a great response from their fans & the excellent support from Blaze's fans that we've been grateful for on this tour. Thanks everyone for the support & promoter Ray for the great welcome. On the way back to the Travelodge we were hooked in by a local kebab-house & Martin tucked into some pretty hot chilli sauce on his 'bab.... let's just say, there were repercussions the next day ;)

Leaving the seaside in ultra-hot conditions again, we made our way to Oswestry, very close to the border of England & North Wales, to play the outdoor Rock n Ride Music Festival (formerly known as Oswestry Music Live). Another long trip & we arrived around 3pm, with our headlining set-time planned for 4.30pm. It was cloudy when we arrived (no, this isn't a weather forecast but just setting the scene!), & within 20 minutes or so the heavens opened & the band playing before us (called Queensbury) took the stage in a torrential downpour. The festival square had all but emptied which was extremely unfair on Queensbury who'd made the long trip up from Swansea but on the other hand you couldn't blame everyone 'cos it really was bouncing down. Queensbury made the best of a very difficult situation (great singer by-the-way), & we started to prepare for our set, thinking this was going to be a wash-out. However, we were blessed as the rain stopped, the clouds parted & the hot sun came streaming through again. The square filled up as we got started & ended up a really good gig. Thanks to Keith for booking us, looking after us, thanks to all who supported us & to Liz from the Golden Lion who very kindly guided us to her pub (very cool place) & fed us free of charge. Big thanks also to our labelmates Decadenze for sharing their drum kit & very sorry we didn't arrive in time to see your set a little earlier in the day - we bad! Thank you Oswestry & thank you God for blessing us with sunshine!

We have a few days now before we travel down south again, to play the White Rabbit, Plymouth on Friday & then back up North of course for the amazing-looking SOS Festival in Manchester on Saturday. Have you got your tickets yet? - here's the place to go to get your tickets

Hail! people of the UK! We're very happy to be getting around the country & to meet so many of you. Big thanks to you all.

Latest 9/10 review of "VR"

"VR, a true metal gem that brings Dream Theater and Iron Maiden to mind, with tempo
changes galore, galloping bass lines, harmonized guitars, and well..just class .... Outpost (possibly the best power ballad I've heard in years!) ....If you like traditional metal with a contemporary edge, with great songs played by talented and passionate musicians then you'll love this album! Check it out, buy it, and support a great British band. 9/10" (Glitzine)

Pre-order "VR" album from HMV, £9.99, FREE delivery

HMV have our "VR" album available for pre-order now for just £9.99 & UK delivery free.

Click this link to check it out :-

With stunning artwork by Mark Wilkinson (who's also done album covers for Judas Priest, Marillion & many others).

Here's a few extracts from recent reviews of "VR" :-

"Chris is clearly a talented singer & guitarist combined .... influences are clear, from early Black Sabbath through to early Iron Maiden, they are still able to bring these styles up to date and provide that modern missing link that fans of the above have been waiting for."

"imagine early Metallica and Megadeth but fronted by Whitfield Crane of Ugly Kid Joe fame .... and let’s face it Crane unlike Hetfield and Mustaine could actually sing .... Throw in lyrics I am lead to believe Ronnie James Dio would have been proud of and you have VR." (reader's rating 10 out of 10).

"big riffs wrapped around a powerful vocal & thumping rhythm section .... an outstanding slice of metal"

Thanks a lot.

Update from the road

This is overdue! Sorry, can't always do this when we'd like but here we are!

The past couple of weeks has been a bit of a blur. We played the Marlborough Festival on the day we last blogged, that was a tough day. 7 hours to get there from Manchester to London, due to several delays on the motorway which has become a consistent thing in our recent travels during the 2nd half of this tour. The Marlborough wasn't the best-attended of our recent gigs but the people were good to us & we're glad we made the trip. Following that we were at the Roadhouse, Birmingham & what a night that proved to be. A crowd of around 160 I think it was & we got a fantastic reception & what a cool venue that is, following a recent re-fit. Would have been nice to see it beforehand to appreciate the changes but nevertheless is a great place to play & we'd love to get back there. Very cool green room area to kick back before the show.

Then during the middle of last week we suffered a nightmare journey to Southend with yet more traffic delays including 2 accidents we saw the aftermath of, plus one we actually saw. 6 hours later we arrived at the Riga Bar which was more than worth the journey. We got an amazing welcome from the people there & there was a real buzz around the place. The Southend Echo had written a really nice piece about Blaze Bayley & us in their issue the week before & maybe that fired everyone up for a great night? Whatever it was it worked. Oxford's Bullingdon Arms the next night was less well-attended but we seemed to do well there still. After that it was another sorry journey home as the clutch went dodgy on the Fury UK-mobile - we managed to limp home but it's in the garage for some TLC i.e. a new clutch.... ouch! sounds expensive but hoping management/label will once again get their hands in their pockets ;)

We should do some more writing about the current album reviews soon because the feedback is really positive so far. Some reviews are up already at but there's more to come we hear so will let you all know as & when.

Next up it's down to more new territory at Bideford, Devon, to the Palladium Club on Friday, 3rd July with Blaze Bayley, then we headline the Oswestry Rock & Ride festival on Saturday, taking the stage at 4.30pm in Festival Square. We've always been looked after well in Oswestry so definitely up for that one.

After that it's Friday 10th July, down to the South West again to Plymouth, White Rabbit, new one again for us. Then we hit the road straight after that show to make our way back to Manchester to get ready for the SOS Festival, co-presented by Rocksector Records & Rock Radio Manchester 106.1FM. Awesome line-up as most of you know -

Blaze Bayley, Fury UK, Nightvision (excellent reviews recently & double-page features in Metal Hammer & Powerplay magazines), Decadenze (starring role at recent Darwen Festival & also supported Blaze on the Scottish leg of his UK tour), Babylon Fire, Incassum, Serotonal (featurng ex-Anathema vocalist Darren White), Crosswire (featuring New Model Army guitarist Marshall Gill), Exit State, Defiant, Falling Red.

Get advance tickets for SOS Festival for just £5 by visiting Ticketline here :- or by telephone to 08714244444 . The door charge on the day is £7.

When that awesome weekend is over, marking the end of the UK tour with Blaze Bayley (boo-hoo!), we take just a few days break then begin our "VR Tour" to promote the release of the new album on 13th July. This tour includes several dates with our Swedish labelmates Core of Nation who are touring the UK again. There's one or two more dates to be confirmed on the VR Tour but so far it looks like this :-

15th : MFN Club, Shipley Gate (Nottinghamshire)(support from NG26 Nightvision)
16th : King Edward VII, Blackpool
24th : Whittles, Oldham (support from NG26)
25th : Old Isaacs, Atherton (support from NG26)
30th : Bootleggers, Kendal

Kerrang & lots more this week

Hi all, we were delighted to go in for a live interview with Tony @ Radio Warrington. First time we'd met him & he proved to be a top bloke, loves his music & knows his stuff. Thanks Tony for looking after us & for a really interesting interview. People! .... check out his Rock Show on Wednesdays from 8pm at

We're at Birmingham tomorrow night, The Roadhouse, picking up the trail on the tour with Blaze Bayley & we understand both Kerrang Radio (Johnny Doom - & Phoenix Radio (Nigel - are coming along to interview us which should be cool. Our good friend Red Shaw is also there to take some piccis - she last photo'd us at the Rock of Ages Fest last year & did a great job so we look forward to catching up & seeing some ace piccis later on.

We've just heard that 1Radio are to interview Chris live on air on Sunday night, 7.45pm. Looking forward to that one.

.... and last but not least, Bruce Dickinson is playing Fury UK again on his show tonight at BBC6 . He's played "Salvation" previously but tonight is choosing a track from the new album, so really interested to see which one he chooses.

We're playing in London tonight, The Marlborough in Camberwell. A late set at about 11.30 headlining their first festival day there. Looks gooooood!

Hail! Hope to see you on the road but if you're staying at home don't forget to put the radio on! :)

Reviews of the new album & recent gigs

Sonic Dice (VR album review)

"Chris is clearly a talented singer & guitarist combined. This is often hard to
find, a frontman who also plays a perfect lead guitar role. His vocals
often sound reminiscent of Dave Mustane .... Although the bands
influences are clear, from early Black Sabbath through to early Iron
Maiden, they are still able to bring these styles up to date and provide
that modern missing link that fans of the above have been waiting for".

DSD (VR album review)

"imagine early Metallica and Megadeth but fronted by Whitfield Crane of Ugly Kid Joe
fame. So what you get is a Classic Hard Rock and with a singer, and
let’s face it Crane unlike Hetfield and Mustaine could actually sing,
who can do just that. Throw in lyrics I am lead to believe Ronnie James
Dio would have been proud of and you have VR." (reader's rating 10 out
of 10).

Mayfair Mallzine (VR album review)
"big riffs wrapped around a powerful vocal &thumping rhythm section .... an
outstanding slice of metal .... ‘Brotherhood’, an all metal anthem which
showcases perfectly just how the band has matured.... guitar solos come
thick and fast, but they are equalled by some great bass lines & a
monster drum sound throughout".

Mayfair Mallzine (Gig review : Trillians, Newcastle, Blaze Bayley UK Tour)
"the band are now a proper united front who truly believe in the music they
create and the direction they are travelling in...." "a sample of what to expect from the bands forthcoming album 'VR' and what better way than the title track ‘VR’....this was sheer brilliance...." "Death By Lightning.... one of the finest pieces of metal you’ll hear". (Gig review : Hobbits, Weston-super-Mare, Blaze Bayley UK Tour)
"a hell of a good show .... some of the best solos I've seen for a long
time .... early Metallica with a bit of Megadeth, but without copying
either band in any way"

Get Ready To Rock (VR album review)
"....excellent production and playing .... the
music is compelling with some proggy and unexpected touches in places,
and there is the energy of a nascent Megadeth but without the thrash
.... an excellent album and things can only get better for the band"

Calles Rock Corner (VR album review)
"sounds very much as Dave Murray & Adrian Smith .... The Last Invention..technique & melody..magnificent. Sublime! .... Outpost is a beautiful power ballad".

Update from the road

Here we are again with another 3 shows completed on the tour & what a run of shows they were. Last Thursday we were in Norwich. Now this wasn't the best attended show on the tour but of course this one was rearranged at short notice after the previous venue shut down. Big thanks go out to the Brickmakers for putting the show on at short notice & was a decent sized crowd & a great response.

Onto Peterborough for probably the best sound on the tour so far. What an awesome system & sound engineer Les knew how to get the best out of it. This was a Fury UK highpoint I would say, an amazing gig for us at an amazing venue. We stayed on for the club night which followed on from the gig & ended up a little drunken shall we say? Peterborough city centre was "entertaining" when in full flow on a Friday night/Saturday morning & it was only manners to sample burger & chips from a van near the Travelodge for a very late supper.

Next up was Camden Underworld on Saturday. A Saturday night in Camden in itself was an ambition for this band & the anticipation plus a little nerves was certainly there for this one. We weren't disappointed & a full crowd of some 290 people plus guest list made for a hot night. We opened up early at 7.30pm but were relieved to see a packed crowd for pretty much all of our set which went fantasticly well apart from Martin busting a kick drum skin (sorry to Larry from Blaze's band for the necessity for an emergency replacement skin in the changeover). This, like Peterborough, was a highpoint with another great sound, amazing crowd response & plenty of familiar faces amongst the guests. The crowd singing "Hail!" with us in Call To Arms was inspiring. Awesome support all round for us & then Blaze & the guys of course ramped things up even tighter. So, hopefully we did our job there, warming things up nicely. After the gig we were ushered out of the venue unduly quickly but all was good as we made our way to the aftershow party down the road at the Purple Turtle. The party rocked almost as much as the gig - at least if Chris' partying was anything to go by (well done for the duck-walk Chris - Girls, Girls, Girls!). Bands, crew, family & friends all pretty tipsy into the early hours & more than one very sore head plus a little sickness next morning - salute to Sager for the most sickness we've seen for quite some time.

Thanks all for these shows. Truly a privilege to be involved.

Next up on the tour with Blaze we're at the Yorkshire House, Lancaster on Friday 5th June & Victoria Bikers Pub, Coalville on Saturday.

SOS Festival : Blaze Bayley to headline

Update from the road

Can't believe it's a full 10 days since we last blogged! So much has happened & we've travelled so far in that time. Since the Mansfield show we've been to Newport & Swansea in South Wales, Weston-Super-Mare down in the south west of England, up north to Leeds & then Newcastle. Got to say although touring is generally full of highs & lows, the highs are dominating so far. We're having a bloody fantastic time, meeting new people, making new friends, especially in the south where we've not played too often before but equally at the Leeds & Newcastle shows where we've played before but now plenty of new faces.

The response has been awesome for us, we go home each night with cheesy smiles basically cos we're having such a good time & of course after each of our sets we get to rock out to Blaze Bayley's set which is quality!

To everyone at TJ's, Sin City, Hobbit's, Joseph's Well & last night at Trillians - THANK YOU!!!! Your comments & friendship at the shows, & messages afterwards are so much appreciated. YOU ROCK!!!! \m/

Next up it's :-

Thu. 28th May : Brickmakers, Norwich
Fri. 29th May : The Park, Peterborough
Sat. 30th May : Underworld, Camden

Please note the change of venue for the Norwich gig - no longer the Queen Charlotte, now the Brickmakers as above. Looking forward to all of these. It'll be a blast to play Camden on a Saturday - we've been to other venues in Camden during mid-week but a Saturday night at the Underworld is special for us.

We've added a 2nd London date on 19th June which is The Marlborough where we've been asked to headline a rock & metal festival. That's in SE London & proper details will be available very soon.

Don't forget we've also got the Bulldog Bash coming up in August, our 2nd year running there & all the more special for us as the 2 headliners for the weekend are Motorhead & UFO - long-standing heroes for us.

Hope to CYA out there at Norwich, Peterborough & Camden.

Tour update

We've so far been to Bury, Grimsby, Southampton, Swindon & Mansfield on the tour with Blaze bayley & we've loved every minute. The warm welcome we've received at each venue has been a pleasure to see & we've really enjoyed our playing time. And of course each time we've finished we get to kick back, grab a beer & watch Blaze's set which is awesome. We also get to meet & chat with all of you guys out there. It's been a very very cool experience so far. The travelling has been hmmm .... interesting, the motorway services taking a pounding especially with the capuccino to keep our driver's eyes open. A few 5.30 am finishes along the way but hey! .... it's rock n roll. Thanks by the way to Mansfield for the excellent participation with the "Hail!" chants in Call To Arms - awesome!

We're off to Newport on Thursday (TJ's), then Swansea on Friday (Sin City), Weston-super-Mare on Saturday (Hobbit's). Looking forward to these & have heard good things about each venue.

A reminder also that we release our latest album on Rocksector Records in July. You'll have heard a few songs from the album on the tour so far. The title track "VR" is available now for free mp3 download at the band's website :

The album is available for pre-order now, free delivery, at the following retailers :-

Norway Tour : August

We're undertaking our first trip for international gigs when we tour Norway late in August. We expect to announce 4 dates very soon. Fans will remember we'd originally planned to visit around 2/3 years ago only to be let down by a promoter at the last minute so we're really excited that this trip, put together by our label, is happening now. More details soon.

Album Release date : 13th July

For lots of reasons, we've decided to put the new album release back to 13th July. We apologise, we're a bit frustrated about it but in the end it's got to be right. We've had various delays along the way but all resolved now! :)

Album update & other stuff

Hail!!!!, an update from us....

.... we've experienced a few delays with artwork & stuff, so the release date for the new album has been pushed back to 8th June at the earliest. Not what we wanted to do but it's got to be right, that's most important. Sorry for the delay, we'll keep you posted on progress.

Meanwhile, our shows so far since getting back on the road have been rewarding to say the least. The highpoints for us have been first of all the number of people taking the trouble to travel to gigs - in some cases quite a distance - times are hard at the moment we're told (credit crucnh & all that) so when people make an effort it's particularly appreciated. Secondly, as you'll probably realise we've been previewing songs from the new album in our live set & the feedback has been fantastic. That means a lot 'cause let's face it, when you put new stuff out there, you never know for sure how it's going to go down. Brilliant response anyhow & we're delighted with that.

Big big thanks to all those of you who've been to our 9 shows in March so far. Just one to go, this Friday at the Brewery Tap in Bradford, then 2 weeks break before we hit the Yardbirds Club, Grimsby on Friday 10th April. Looking forward to that. A couple of us went to see our label-mates 4Bitten at Yardbirds, with Angel House, a week or so ago & it was a very cool place so we can't wait. We're told that Sacred Mother Tongue are also playing the night we're there & we've heard good things about them so hopefully all shaping up for an awesome night.

We'll be keeping in touch more often on here again now we're up & running on the road.

CYA soon!

1st Week Back on The Road: 27th Feb - 14th Mar

Well we've been back on the road constantly this past week or so, and we couldn't have a better one. Our first show of our year started with a nice lil warm-up gig at "Old Isaccs" in Atherton, where we met up with some of our old friends from Blackpool, thanks again for comin' down you guys, may the force be with you!

A couple of nights after we travelled down to Shrewsbury to "The Yorkshire House". Nice artwork on the walls here - you can see Eddie from Iron Maiden and Megadeth all over the place - cool!

Next, we played a venue in Manchester close to our heart - "Grand Central". We always love playing there but especially enjoyable this time as a erm... young lady dancing decided to strip some clothes off. :D. I must say i struggled to concentrate on the gig while that happening ;)

After a solid and entertaining night at Grand Central, the night after we headed over to the "Seven Stars" which in Wrexham North Wales. We had a great one there too, fans from Oswestry turned up & we were very happy to see them again. Also, our excellent label-mates Decadenze turned up to see us & a good time was had by all.

Next night, we were off to Doncaster, always a happy place for us - "The Hallcross Rock Bar". Have never been disappointed there. Thanks to Annete & Bo for looking after the sound for us, the party aferwards was a bit crazy & breakfast as always was immense!

Finally, we had a week off to stop our fingers from bleeding and relaxed a bit. Then on Saturday 13th March we played "The White Hart" in Burnley. Again another great little Rock venue. Again we got some visitors - our friends Alan & Linda, & also friends from Blackpool Pat & Kay and all their crew travelled over.

So that's a little account of our March shows so far. More to come.

We'll CYA soon.

Back on the Road & Lovin It

Last night we had our first gig in 2 months, and I must say I have missed being on the never ending road of touring! We were in Atherton last night for a lovely lil warm-up gig to get us going which turned out to be a great show for us.

Our next show is this tuesday in Shrewsbury when we play The Yorkshire House. Hopefully see some of u guys there.

We've got plenty of gigs in March & April, all building up to the beginning of May when we start our tour with Blaze Bayley, at the Hark 2 Towler in Bury, a great rock venue. It's a 20 date tour with ex Iron Maiden vocalist Blaze, so make sure u get urselfs down to some of these shows, it's gonna b amazing!

Back on the road / Getting ready for Blaze

After taking January & February off to record a new album "VR", Fury UK is back on the road in March & April, previewing some material from the album (release date 5th May) & warming up for the UK tour with former Iron Maiden frontman Blaze Bayley.

The band has just started discussions for a debut video, to help promote the "VR" album, & the website & MySpace have both been revamped, to match the theme of the awesome album artwork done for us by Mark Wilkinson, who has worked before with the likes of Judas Priest & Marillion. Here's also the March & April dates. We're looking forward to seeing you out there.

Fury UK "VR" : album update / website redesign

Hi all, can't believe it's about a month since we last blogged!

The album's recorded & mixed, ready for mastering. We're pretty excited about everything & of course hope all you guys out there are going to like it as much as we do.

Release date for the album is 5th May, nicely timed for the start of our UK tour with Blaze Bayley on 2nd May.

The front cover artwork design for the new album has been done by a guy called Mark Wilkinson. He's done an amazing job for us & the band's website has been given an overhaul & now all fits the "VR" design. Previously Mark's worked with bands such as Judas Priest & Marillion, quality! Take a look at our website, see what yer reckon?!

As we said we're pretty cranked about the album & tour dates. We reckon we've achieved the main objective which was to record an album which gives a more accurate idea of what the band is like playing live. The album will be available at all the usual hotspots including the almost world-dominant HMV, plus independent stores, plus online at,, We'll let you know when pre-orders are available.

Thanks everyone. More news soon.

Studio update : new album "VR"

Hi everyone. Incredibly this is the first chance we've been able to grab to update you on our progress in the studio. We started recording "VR" on 2nd January & apart from the occasional & customary technical glitch, we've successfully recorded the majority of parts for the 10 tracks.

We go back to the studio this coming week for around 4 days to hopefully complete our work then all will be ready for mixing & mastering. We're excited about the way the new songs developed in the studio & can't wait to get things properly ready for our planned release date at the beginning of May, hopefully more or less in time for the start of UK tour with Blaze Bayley.

It's strange to have no gigs currently but that's exactly as we planned it & we're enjoying the rest & just a few beers ;) Chris was seen last night at a couple of our favourite haunts (Grand Central & Hark To Towler) & we hear made a FULL night of it! Well done, mate!

NYE at the White Hart

Well, a happy new year to all of you rockers out there, and we hope you all had a very merry christmas & new year. Hopefully, you had as good a time as us, especially as we had brilliant gigs at Hark To Towler (Bury) on 27th December, then the White Hart (Burnley) on New Years Eve. We had a bit of fun at Burnley as (surprisingly) were given some blow up guitars, so we rocked out with them, also putting on party hats which our drummer Martin loved to wear ;). A big fun way to see off 2008 & welcome in the new year.

So.... 2009 is here, and it shall be a superb one I believe. Although we take the 1st 2 months off the road we then get busy with our usual touring commitments, in addition to the recent news of our tour with Blaze Bayley, plus of course we are hoping to hit the festivals again in the Summer, with 2 confirmed already. We're busy right up to the end of the year when NYE 2009 will see us in Bolton at the Butchers Arms - it may be a little early notice but come on down and have a party, haha!

There's lots of things to happen between now & then, & as most of you know 1st up for is recording our new album "VR". The songs are written - 9 brand new tracks, plus 1 old favourite. Although none of the new songs have been played live, we've been rehearsing them for a while now, so we're ready!

We'll try to keep you up-to-date with our work in the studio.

Cya later
