ROCK CANDY RECORDS has 3 new titles - all available now from www.rockcandyrecords.com
 
SAMMY HAGAR 'DANGER ZONE' CANDY334
 
‘DANGER ZONE’ WAS a particularly gutsy album that moved the guitarist towards a fuller hard rock sound boasting lashings of attack and excitement. It was a formidable album that set the red rocker up for major career advancement. Produced by British engineer Geoff Workman, fresh from recording Journey’s breakthrough album ‘Infinity’, it wasn’t the only Journey connection as both vocalist Steve Perry and guitarist Neal Schon made guest appearances helping to showcase a thoroughly impressive collection of tracks and a production that propelled Hagar’s stature ever upwards. Originally issued in 1980, the record contained ten golden hard rock nuggets enhancing his reputation as one of the most compelling and significant artists of the era.

STEVE JONES 'MERCY' CANDY363
 
WHEN THE SEX PISTOLS disintegrated in 1978 guitarist Steve Jones involved himself in a number of diverse projects. Relocating to the USA he commenced building a career as a solo artist. His debut solo album ‘Mercy’, issued in 1984, was a unique and somewhat surprising statement from a man who had previously been viewed as a maverick guitar hero. The album is built primarily around melodic rock songs that, by any other artist, may have been labelled AOR. Of course these tracks provide a solid foundation for Steve to unleash some blazing lead guitar, however, the emphasis is not on power chords but carefully executed solos, helping to support the melody rather than burying it beneath mountainous riffs.

STEVE JONES 'FIRE AND GASOLINE' CANDY364
 
THERE ARE FEW guitarists who have created as big an impact on rock music as Steve Jones. As one of the founding members of the Sex Pistols it was Jones who outlined the band’s sound, with his mountainous guitar riffs and unbridled energy pushing the material way beyond the red zone. ‘Fire And Gasoline’ really saw his creative juices flow. It was a tough and direct display of fire-power, bringing Jones’ guitar prowess to the fore. Produced by British studio wizard Mark Dearnley (AC/DC, Motorhead) with help from The CULT’s Ian Astbury, it concentrates on red hot riffs and shout-it-out-loud songs. Look out for guest appearances, most notably from Billy Duffy and Axl Rose.

THE PROFESSIONALS Features All Star Classic Rock Cast

Categories: 
The Professionals are back! Formed from the ashes of the Sex Pistols, the band is ready to release the brand new studio album What In The World, available October 27 via The End/Automaton Records. The album is available now for pre-order on digital, CD and LP formats. Exclusive pre-order bundles are also available on Pledge Music.
 
Produced by Dave Draper, and co-produced by Paul Cook and Tom Spencer, What In The World bristles with conviction and finds The Professionals in electrifying form, delivering some of the most ballsy, honest and downright brilliant songs of their career. They are joined on this album by a stellar cast of guest guitar players including original member Steve Jones (who plays on three tracks). as well as Duff McKagan (Guns 'n' Roses), Mick Jones (The Clash), Phil Collen (Def Leppard), Marco Pirroni (Adam & The Ants), Chris McCormack (3 Colours Red) and Billy Duffy (The Cult). 
 
This energetic album features 10 finely crafted songs, full of rock'n'roll attitude -  including a tribute to Lemmy and Bowie entitled "Going, Going, Gone," before closing with "Monkeys," the Darwinian pop at world leaders. All the basic tracks were put down at Zak Starkeys studio, just outside London and were finished at Tower Studios in Pershore, while the guests recorded in various studios, both in the US and UK. The resulting album is an aural treat, with no calculated image or reliance on nostalgia.
 
The Professionals have created a truly honest album and it is the sound of a band at the top of their game, which is an all too rare commodity in today's world. Look no further than the first two singles "Rewind" and "Good Man Down" that accompany the album pre-order. The lyric video for "Good Man Down" released in September, and is followed by the official music video for "Rewind," which premiered this week with Billboard. About the new song, Paul Cook explains: "'Rewind' is an ode to short term memory loss.  You get to an age where everything's familiar but you don't quite know why. Kind of comforting, kind of scary." 
 
Both tracks are available now for streaming and for instant download. You can watch the videos below.
