MOTHER`S FINEST

sign with Steamhammer/SPV

New album Goody 2 Shoes & The Filthy Beast scheduled for release in spring 2015

First single due out in December 2014


The rock legend is back: American funk rock sensation Mother's Finest have signed a european recording deal with Steamhammer/SPV and are set to unleash their latest studio album Goody 2 Shoes & The Filthy Beast in spring 2015. This will be the band's first studio recording since their 2003 release Meta-Funk'n-Physical. Mother's Finest are ready to introduce the first single from their new album as early as December 2014. The current line-up includes vocalists Joyce Kennedy and Glenn Murdock, bassist Wyzard and guitarist Moses Mo, all four original members of the first line-up dating back to 1970. Guitarist John Hayes and drummer Dion Derek have proved to complement Mother's Finest perfectly since their comeback in 1989.

The group achieved their international breakthrough with a spectacular TV appearance at one of the legendary Rockpalast concerts promoted by German TV station WDR in March 1978, when Joyce Kennedy's awesome performance and the band's red hot hits such as 'Mickey's Monkey', 'Baby Love' and 'Give You All The Love' wowed millions of TV viewers, making the band famous practically over night.

Steamhammer/SPV are of course delighted with the latest addition to their roster. A&R manager Olly Hahn: 'For two years I've been trying to get this band and now it's finally happened: Mother's Finest are on Steamhammer/SPV. When I heard the album Iron Age in 1981, I was totally blown away by their power. And when you hear and see them now, nothing has changed. The new album will be their first in 12 years, so expect an exciting ride between rock and funk that you haven't heard in years!'


Vocalist Joyce Kennedy is also looking forward to a promising collaboration: 'After almost two years, Mothers Finest takes pride to announce our association with SPV/Steamhammer as our record label, and expect a long, successful, prosperous relationship. We as a band with our own identity believe that SPV/Steamhammer supports the music as much as the trend. Mothers Finest and SPV/Steamhammer, the perfect fit. Are You Ready To Rock?'

13.11. A-Vienna - Porgy
14.11. A-Greifenburg - Kultursaal

MAGNUM New Digital & Vinyl Single Out November 14

Artist: 
Friday, November 14, 2014
Categories: 
 
The British melodic hard rock group MAGNUM have confirmed new release dates for the upcoming single "On Christmas Day" on Steamhammer / SPV. "On Christmas Day" is a re-recorded new version of the same song, which appeared on the original version of the 1994 album "Rockart". The single contains a long version of the song and a shorter radio edit and on top a brand new recording of the song named "Born To Be King"

The digital version will be available worldwide (except UK) on November 14th, the 10" vinyl version in Germany on November 14th and Europe (except UK) on November 17th.
In the UK the digital version and the 10" version will be available on December 1st!
 
Guitarist and songwriter Tony Clarkin tells how it all happened: "It was Olly Hahn at SPV/Steamhammer who said that he a great idea, and could I write a Christmas song? I replied we had already had done that in the past and told him about "On Christmas Day" and that it was on the "Rockart" album.So if he wanted to check that out to see if it was suitable because it`s not the normal Christmas song that people would expect. I had not heard it myself for a long long time. We were in Germany at the time and so we all sat round the computer to listen to the track and we were all impressed and I was really looking forward to re doing it. That's really the story of how it came about, but I also thought "Born To Be King" could also fit with On Christmas Day as a strong B side for the whole package.!"
 
Bass player Alan Barrow, who created the single’s artwork, explains that the idea for the cover "was based on some documented facts about the men in the trenches around Christmas in 1914."  Carol singing was said to have been heard going back and forth between the trenches from both sides. Some documents state that on Christmas day a small amount of soldiers ventured in to ‘no mans land’ where they exchanged food, cigarettes and souvenirs. There are some reports that a game of football was also played.”

Debut album Curse Of The Damned out on 19 January 2015
 

Steamhammer/SPV are set to start into the new year 2015 with a new promising US Metal band: Hailing from the city of Ventura an hour north of Los Angeles, NIGHT DEMON is a classic metal trio consisting of Jarvis Leatherby (bass, vocals), Brent Woodward (guitars) and Dusty Squires (drums) . The band has completed work on their debut full-length album Curse Of The Damned, featuring eleven brand new original tracks, and is slated for an early 2015 release on January 14 (Scandinavia),  January 16 (Germany) and January 19 (rest of Europe) as CD, LP (+ bonus track) and download.

NIGHT DEMON unite the three members’ musical inspirations and influences ranging from old-school metal greats such as Iron Maiden, Metallica, Diamond Head, Angel Witch, Riot and Saxon to punk legends The Misfits. But whilst the band`s music proudly exhibits these roots, it does so in a manner contemporary with modern times in every aspect.

NIGHT DEMON released their self-titled debut EP in April 2013, and to coincide with their massively extensive Europe tour of Spring 2014, they put out an expanded edition of the EP with four additional tracks. The Europe tour saw NIGHT DEMON successfully sign a european record deal with Steamhammer/SPV. They are currently garnering new converts in every town on a full North American Fall 2014 tour with RAVEN, and are primed for plenty of solid worldwide touring in the immediate and long-term future.

RIOT V "Unleash The Fire" Album Announced from SPV

Artist: 
Wednesday, October 22, 2014
Categories: 
 
The remaining members of legendary metal pioneers RIOT are back and are ready to unleash the follow up to 2011’s reunion record ‘Immortal Soul’. They are ready to unleash music in the great RIOT tradition that the fans come to know and love. RIOT V is ready to ‘UNLEASH THE FIRE!’
 
This marks the first release from the band without the late great founding guitarist Mark Reale who passed away in early 2012 and was limited on his participation on Immortal Soul because of his health issues. The band was encouraged at the request of Mark and the Reale estate to forge ahead in his honor and will dedicate this new offering to him. The album promises to please fans of the ‘Thundersteel’ era of RIOT as main song writer and long time Reale music collaborator Don Van Stavern does much of the writing as he did on ‘Thundersteel’ and ‘The Privilege of Power’. Don is joined by long time RIOT band mate, song writer and Reales guitar partner of over 20 years Mike Flyntz to create what they feel is something they are proud to call a RIOT record and Reale would have thought that as well. RIOT has a tumultuous history of member, label and management changes throughout the bands 30 plus year career but one things for sure, a bands longevity is through good music and if this new record is any proof, they will be around for years to come.
 
RIOT, like Johnny, are back again! Through the storm of lifes obsticles the guys are joined by powerhouse vocalist extraordinaire Todd Michael Hall (Burning Starr, Reverence), Frank Gilchriest (Virgin Steele, Riot’s Army of One) and former Mike Flyntz guitar student and resident shredder Nick Lee and are ready to raise the flag in honor of the RIOT legacy of music and our fallen band mates and the fans who have been demanding RIOT for years. This new onslaught headlined sold out shows in Germany, Greece, Spain and Italy and headlined the prestigious festivals Metal Assault and Metal Apocalypse early this year with rave reviews and festivals� including Bang Your Head with Twisted Sister and Anthrax, Metal Days with Megadeth and Volbeat and they headlined the Headbangers Open Air with bands including Warlord and Anvil and top it off with the headlining performance on next years Keep It True 2015 Festival which is already sold-out!
 
 
The new record is slated for an October 22nd release in Scandinavia, an October 24th release in Germany, an October 27th release in Europe and an October 28th release in the US and Canada via SPV/Steamhammer. The album will be available as a digipak version with one bonus tack, a double gatefold coloured vinyl version also with one bonus track, as a standard version and download.
 
RIOT are consistantly on radio and metal charts worldwide, as well as being a part of New York Citys Top 20 most influencial metal bands and numerous mentions on VH1’s That Metal Show with Eddie Trunk and staff sighting RIOT as one of the inovaters of Metal music in America and beyond! The new CD promises to be a true successor to the legacy of ‘Thundersteel’, ‘The Privilege of Power’ and “Immortal Soul”. RIOT V truely are Metal Soldiers and will keep marching and fighting the good fight to bring you the music you’ve come to know, love and expect.
