Important Announcement from PRETTY MAIDS:
 
It’s with a heavy heart we have to announce that our brother Ronnie Atkins is in hospital in Basel, Switzerland. He suffered an unfortunate blow to the head and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. He is currently undergoing tests and being observed by specialists.
 
The latest news is that he is conscious but has to remain in hospital for a while. As a consequence of this we have to cancel the last 3 shows on our tour. Once Ronnie is fully recovered we will come back and play these shows and film the scheduled DVD. 
We apologize for this and know you guys travel far to come to these shows. Our main concern at this time is Ronnie’s health.
 
Pls contact your ticket seller for more information. We will also provide this as soon as we have the information. Thank you for your understanding. You can send Ronnie you best wishes on our Facebook page. We will be back with an update on the situation as soon as we can. ~
PM

Best wishes to Ronnie. He is one my preferred singers.

Defiants 2.0 is indeed excellent news.  And although I enjoy most things Paul is involved with I have very little interest in another Darkhorse album.  That was similar to Bon Jovi's Lost Highway, solid country rock, but not really my thing.

Been listening to the Defiants album lately, good to hear there'll be a second one. But ''currently working on'' means it'll be a while before it's out..... I'm guessing another year so April 2019 maybe

I loved the first one. Hopefully the second one will be as good or even better.

From Frontiers:

Attention First Signal fans! A nice little update from Daniel Flores for you.....and some other juicy tidbits in there too.....

"Hi Guys!

While you are waiting for the release of the new (Third) Find me record and the new Toby Hitchcock record I'm here to tell you that Ive began working on the third FIRST SIGNAL record (Yeah, it's quite the tongue twister) featuring the always enigmatic Harry Hess from Harem Scarem band on vocals.

It's a huge honor and BIG responsibility of course to take on this task again, thank you all for buying the last record.
The band will be the same as last time but with the addition of the fantastic Johan Niemann (Evergrey, Opeth) on bass and as always my right hand and brother, from another mother Michael Palace (Palace, Kryptonite) again handling all guitars. Of course you'll have to endure my drumming and keyboard arrangements plus production once again. :-)

As always, as with any album, it's nothing without the hard work and melodies from the songwriters. Harry Hess, Carl Dixon, Nigel Bailey, Hal Marabel, Ulrick Lönnqvist, Sören Kronqvist, Daniel Palmqvist, Morgan Jensen, Henrik Hedström,
Lars Edvall, Anderz Wrethov and Andreas Johansson.

We promise to give you every bit of what last record promised and go even beyond.

Thanks to Serafino and the Frontiers guys for making this possible.

Cheers for taking time to read!

Now back to work!"

Been asking myself lately if Palace is still active as a band? Their debut ''Master of the Universe'' from two years ago showed some promise

    • Isn't this just basically Liberty N Justice without the drummer and bassist? In fact, seven of the twelve songs already feature on the last Liberty N Justice album from 2014.
    • that's disappointing as a review I read said that it was grittier. Hey ho 
    • yeah whatever. I really think you are over exaggerating here as it's just not that bad.  But i do listen mostly on Spotify through pretty bass heavy cans so maybe that's it. Good production / bad production all sounds pretty much the same on that lol. Gone are my high end audio days 
    • Let's end this now.
      There is no possible positive outcome for further discussion.
      FWIW,they're both painful for me compared to AFL.
    • haha, We had our honeymoon in Thailand 12 years ago.
      Going back because it was opportunistic and also because all the traveling we do (around 4 o 5 overseas trips annually) are either work related or pretty fast paced taking in the sights etc.

      Since we've been to Phuket before we're hoping it's forced relaxation to a degree. Also,we're staying in the same hotel we honeymooned in, which is kinda cool. Let me know how you found the Philippines.
      Some friends and I celebrate major birthdays with an OS trip which is next year.
      One of them is trying for vegas. I complained that he'd want a week there. He came back with "nah, a long weekend is enough"
      He missed the point. I wouldn't fly to LA for a week, let along a long weekend, so I'm looking for alternates.
    • This one is fantastic. Will check them out.
    • Haha, I was going to put a thread up for that album tomorrow, when I have time to sit down and put some ratings on it. But I agree, sounded great. Probably the best modern rock album I've heard this year. Loved my first few listens of it - some really, really catchy/melodic choruses. There's a lot of bands who do this ADTR type of sound, and some are average but occasionally some do stand out from the pack. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the Sink The Ship album. If I remember right, the first track is all balls to the wall and I was worried it was just going to be another pass. But a a few more clean vocals and big hooks later, and I was totally sold on it. Good stuff. I think this 'Everything' song was up at the top of my faves. 
    • Glad to see another positive comment for this one.  The album hasn't gotten much attention here, but I think it is worth checking out as well.
    • I like these guys  will give the new songs a listen for sure I'd suggest checking out a new album from  a band called Sink the Ship actually , sound a bit like these guys although heavier  
    • Nice. I'll check their previous albums out.
