Thanks for the post. Big fan of this band. Drove 15 hours to see them in Wisconsin Rapids on the Pain tour. Met the band after the gig. Super friendly and down to earth dudes.

This new story makes me really excited to hear it. Especially the bold part.






Rhino Bucket will release their seventh album, The Last Real Rock ’N’ Roll, on April 21st via Acetate Records. The album track, “Hello Citizens”, is available for streaming below.


"We never did a ballad. Never will," states Rhino Bucket singer/rhythm guitarist Georg Dolivo. And the dozen songs on Rhino Bucket's aptly titled seventh studio album bear witness to his statement: The dirty dozen tunes on The Last Real Rock 'N' Roll are no-holds-barred rockers boasting irresistible sing-along choruses, stellar solos, and gut-roiling rhythm section, making for riff-tastic bluesy bar-band rampage. If you don't stomp your feet to "Falling Down The Stairs" and bang your head to "The Devil You Know," check your pulse.


The irresistible "Last Call" boasts stellar female backup vocals and Hammond B3 organ for a bit of a stylistic departure, which leads Dolivo to laugh, "Are we in danger of growing up?" The answer is still an emphatic NO. Rhino Bucket has lost none of the hunger, propulsion, beer drinkin' 'n' hell-raising that they began with in 1988, leading Jesse Fink, author of The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, to boldly state: "More than any other band, Rhino Bucket has awakened the ghost of Bon Scott. His spirit lives in their music. They're more AC/DC than AC/DC - and that's saying something."


The Last Real Rock 'N' Roll was produced by Supersuckers frontman Eddie Spaghetti, who Rhino Bucket first met when the bands toured North America together in 2006.


"We got to know Eddie and really got along. We had great respect for his talent, especially as a songcrafter, and when we got into the studio he was such the positive force," says Dolivo. "He really understood the band and helped us elevate the songs."

The band sequestered at Studio 64 in Highland Park, CA, for about a month with Spaghetti to lay down The Last Real Rock 'N' Roll, leaving egos at the door, and turning amps up to 11.


The Last Real Rock ’N’ Roll is Rhino Bucket's first album since 2011's Who's Got Mine. Featuring founding members Dolivo and bassist Reeve Downes; renowned guitarist Brian "Damage" Forsythe (of Kix fame), who's been with the Bucket for more than 15 years; and drummer, Dave DuCey, the quartet's years of road work show in the drum-tight playing and vibe.


Loud, proud and unapologetic, Rhino Bucket signed with Warner Brothers/Reprise in 1989 and recorded two albums with the label. Their song "Ride With Yourself" from their second LP, Get Used To It, was featured in the hit movie Wayne's World. After parting ways with Warner Brothers, Simon Wright (AC/DC and Dio) joined the band for the next album, Pain (1994). In 1996, the band took a hiatus but roared back to life in 2001 when guitarist Brian "Damage" Forsythe of Kix joined up. The past dozen years have seen the band record the soundtrack for cult stoner film Rolling Kansas, and place songs in several movies, including “Welcome To Hell" in The Wrestler and the title track to The Outdoorsmen: Blood, Sweat and Beers. Rhino Bucket teamed up with Acetate Records in 2006 and has released three all-original albums since then: And Then It Got Ugly (2006), The Hardest Town (2009) and Who's Got Mine? (2011), along with two compilation albums, No Song Left Behind and Pain And Suffering (both 2007).


The interim between Who's Got Mine? and The Last Real Rock ’N’ Roll proved fortuitous, as Dolivo explains: "Sometimes you just to wait for the stars to align. We has numerous starts and stops throughout the years, but it never felt right until we got Eddie on board and the right batch of songs to chose from."


Additionally, Rhino Bucket were (and remain) in constant motion - "like 43 gigs in 46 days, with 21 in a row to start the tour. Several Monsters of Rock cruises and countless other gigs all over the world. It took a while but we didn't want to rush or push anything, the if I may be so humble, we think the results were worth waiting for."


From the opening entreaty of "Hello Citizens" where Rhino Bucket urge fans to join them on their rockin' "revolution" (a call to arms in the spirit of AC/DC's "For Those About To Rock" and Cheap Trick's "Hello There"), the band rallies the troops with such relatable, irresistible rock anthems as "Last Call”, “Swing And A Miss" and "I'm Your Doctor”.


While Dolivo writes a majority of the lyrics, three of the songs were co-written with original guitarist and co-founder Greg Fields, with Dolivo observing, "It was nice to combine the beginning spirit of the band with where we are now."


Rhino Bucket are humbled by their faithful fans, longevity, and consistent creativity, as Dolvio concludes, "We've seen the world together and are still friends. It's a miracle, right? Brian joining the band after Greg left was a godsend, as was Dave. Musically we all have our shit down, and finally we have four guys who all have the same goal: To simply be the best Rhino Bucket that we can."

    • That is one terrible album cover 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl are delighted to announce the release of “Ride To Nowhere”, the third studio album by Inglorious on January 25, 2019. The debut single & video from the album, “Where Are You Now?” is out now. The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD+T-shirt), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl (exclusive to Frontiers webstore), Limited Edition White Vinyl (exclusive to the Inglorious webstore), and Digital formats. Pre-order HERE: http://radi.al/RideToNowhere

      Frontiers Store: https://www.frontiers.shop/ In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, “Ride To Nowhere”. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies. “This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” – Nathan James “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. – Colin Parkinson The recording of “Ride to Nowhere” involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.” From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, “Ride to Nowhere” is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” – Andreas Eriksson “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver   Tracklisting: 1. Where Are You Now?
