Following two recent shows in London and Leeds to celebrate their latest single ‘Moonbow’Black Moth have announced a run of UK tour dates in February next year ahead of the release of their upcoming album ‘Anatomical Venus’. Vocalist Harriet Hyde comments:

Black Moth eagerly anticipate February’s UK tour to promote our 3rd album, ‘Anatomical Venus’. Some days the prospect feels like an ideal opportunity to exorcise some demons and inflate our egos a little to see us through the dark winter months. Some days it fills us with morbid anxiety and existential dread. Nevertheless, we will hit that road and play you our music hoping that you like it or otherwise formulating psychological defences against your hypothetical disapproval.”

While their first 2 albums were released by New Heavy SoundsBlack Moth will have their latest / third studio album issued worldwide via Candlelight Records on February 23rd 2018, the result of an alliance between Candlelight and NHS.

OPERATION: MINDCRIME : ‘The New Reality’ – new album and UK tour by group featuring Geoff Tate (ex-Queensrÿche)

The New Reality’ is the third and final chapter in an album trilogy by iconic metal vocalist Geoff Tate. Its release comes a year after the release of the second part, entitled ‘Resurrection’, and two since the first, ‘The Key’. Operation: Mindcrime is a creative platform that continues in the spirit of the historic Queensrÿche album of the same name, spawning concepts as grand as the music and intertwining the intensity of Tate’s iconic past with his former band and the provocative, progressive mindset that has made him one of music’s most resolute forces. Joined by a cast of musicians whose talent and resumés speak volumes for the quality of musicianship that is on display here, ‘The New Reality’ is another quality progressive rock/metal entry from Tate.

Geoff Tate sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensrÿche, the band he fronted for three decades from their inception to 2012, earning three Grammy nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nominations and an MVA victory along the way. The landmark concept album ‘Operation: Mindcrime’ thrust Tate’s unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988 and was followed in 1990 by ‘Empire’, the album that took Queensrÿche to arena headlining status and sold over 3 million copies on the back of singles such as ‘Silent Lucidity’ and ‘Jet City Woman’. By the time they released ‘Promised Land’ in 1994, Tate was widely acknowledged as one of the best frontmen in rock and metal and a driving force behind one of the most innovative bands around. From these albums up to 2009’s overlooked gem ‘American Soldier’, Tate’s ambitious concept album that explores the consequences of war as told through the voices of veterans, his thirteen album tenure with Queensrÿche was marked by exploration, intrigue, bold risks and gratifying results. ‘The New Reality’ continues that musically adventurous tradition.

Krysthla reveal minor mystery video and new UK tour dates


Krysthla have revealed ‘The Minor Mystery Of Death’, the third single and official music video from their new album ‘Peace In Our Time’ which is released this Friday, 7th April.

Guitarist Neil Hudson says of the track: “The Minor Mystery Of Death is about embracing the end. Death is an absolute certainty and we’re living lives that seem like they’re going to last forever until it’s too late and your mortality is thrust into your hands. “We’re very precious towards our lives but don’t actually live them.”
Peace In Our Time was influenced by Krysthla’s 2016 European tour with Decapitated – with Hudson revealing that one experience on the road will live with him forever:
“On the Greek border, I saw a refugee girl stood on the other side of the motorway while we were parked up getting fuel. She saw us looking over at the thousands of grubby tents cooking the inhabitants in the scorching heat and fixed her eyes on me for a few seconds. “I gave her a nod. She jumped over the barrier and ran over the motorway to the garage, dodging traffic on her way. She walked over, looked me straight in the eye, said something in Syrian and gave me a highfive and hugged my leg. “I left a bit of me behind that day. We sobbed in the van as we left. It was utterly heart breaking to hear the hum of bodies murmuring in the boiling sun.” Hudson adds: “The album is influenced heavily, and almost solely by the fact I am a father. With so much unrest and violence in the world, it’s easy to turn your back and pretend none of it has an impact on your life. “Or somehow because it’s a long way from home it’s someone else’s problem. War does not sleep. War does not stop. It doesn’t choose who dies and who lives. But the people who light the fire and fan the flames do.”
The new album ‘Peace In Our Time’ is released 7th April via PHD.

BROTHER FIRETRIBE 15TH ANNIVERSARY EUROPEAN TOUR ANNOUNCED FIRST EVER HEADLINE UK SHOW…


Finnish AOR maestros Brother Firetribe are proud to announce their 15th Anniversary European Tour.

Embarking upon a voyage across 11 different countries, this 19-date headline run not only celebrates the band’s 15 year career, it also features their first bill-topping appearances in certain countries, including the UK…

“We absolutely can’t wait to come back to the UK to hook up with all the friends we made there the last time. It’ll be a riot!”BFT front-man, Pekka Ansio Heino.

To date, the group’s sole UK performance took place at Firefest in Nottingham in 2014; however, this will change in October of this year when they return to Nottingham for the melodic hard rock festival that is Rockingham, as well as putting on their first headline UK show at the newly re-launched Borderline in Central London.

UK dates as follows:-

21.10. UK – London, Borderline

22.10. UK – Nottingham, Rockingham Festival 

Brother Firetribe’s fourth full-length album, ‘Sunbound’, is released on March 24th via Spinefarm Records.

Featuring 12 new pieces of music, including lead track ‘Taste Of A Champion’ plus follow-up single / video ‘Indelible Heroes’, ‘Sunbound’ has been mixed by Finnish studio-meisteMikko Karmila (NightwishChildren Of Bodom, Stratovarius), and is the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Diamond In The Firepit’.

Since first coming together for their ‘False Metal’ debut back in 2006Brother Firetribe –featuring Nightwish guitarist Emppu Vuorinen – have flown the flag for a brand of music (‘ultra-melodic West Coast AOR’) that once strode the US radio airwaves like a colossus, filling up arenas and providing the silky soundtrack to pool-side summers and wind-in-the-hair coastal highway drives; music pioneered by some of rock music’s most legendary names…

However, Brother Firetribe – that’s Vuorinen, Pekka Ansio Heino, keyboard player Tomppa Nikulainen, bassist Jason Flinck & drummer Hannes Pirila – are not trying to hitch a DeLorean ride into the past; rather, their collective aim is to both celebrate and reinvigorate a musical style that is all about big hooks, strong melodies, soaring vocals and searing guitars, not to mention the desire to entertain on a grand an’ glorious scale.
