Romeo's Daughter

RD UK Tour

From the release of their debut Album in 1988, produced in part by the infamous Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange, it was surely to be only a matter of time before Romeo’s Daughter hit the headlines. And that, they certainly did. During a whirlwind tour of the U.S.A their single ‘Don’t Break My Heart’, leapt up the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. The calibre of their songs attracted many established artists; Heart covered the single ‘Wild Child’ on their 3 million selling album ‘Brigade’, achieving No. 2 on the Billboard Rock All Play chart. Eddie Money, Bonnie Tyler and the recently reformed Steps too, have had recording successes with other Romeos’ titles. Their track ‘Heaven in the Backseat’ was the also the opener for the film, ‘Nightmare on Elm Street 5’.

They have kicked off 2015 with a stunning performing at HRH and will be touring with FM in May:

1st, May Bristol Bierkeller
2nd, May Wolverhampton Robin 2
3rd, May Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms
5th, May Nottingham Rescue Rooms
8th, May Newcastle 02 Academy
9th, May Manchester Academy 2
10th, May London 02 Shepherds Bush Empire

They’ll be touring again in October/November – dates to be announced soon.

Palace Of The King Announce Debut Album ‘White Bird / Burn The Sky’

Palace Of The King

AIRBOURNE’s Joel O’ Keeffe (frontman/guitarist) says “Palace Of The King is literally like a huge ground shaking Palace of RIFFS, SOUL and Rock’n’Roll.  With more hooks and lines than a hard working Bering Sea fishing fleet they are guaranteed to tangle you up, reel you in and blow you away with their unique six-stringing, soul singing, sexy stomping Rock’n’Roll! They are the real f**kin’ deal and I can’t wait to see them setting fire to Europe soon! Crank up POTK!”

The all-new 10 track album is set for release on 12th June 2015 in the UK via Listenable Records (A.D.A/Warner).
Clocking in at 44 minutes long, WHITE BIRD/BURN THE SKY was largely recorded at ColourSound Recording Studio with mixing duties handled by both Mike Tholen at Rax Trax Recording in Chicago as well as Rick Will at Oxygen Studios in Sydney.
Vinyl, CD and digital purchase options will all be made available shortly.
Cover art was once again handled by Kristian Kimonides – Tattoo Artist.

Formed in late 2012, Palace Of The King – nameless at that point – quickly recorded a three-track demo and developed the vision of a six-piece blues-infused rock and roll band. Far from a grave-robbing retro trip, Palace Of The King has just as much in common with Rival Sons, Graveyard and Jack White as they do Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.

The band are to announce dates for a European tour in October 2015 – details to follow.

Palace Of The King are:

TIM HENWOOD – Vocals & Percussion

Whitesnake premier “Burn” from “The Purple Album”

Today Whitesnake premiered Burn from the upcoming “The Purple Album” released via Frontiers Music SRL in the UK on May 18th.

Rock icons Whitesnake are set to return with their 12th studio album this spring. The Purple Album will be released in Europe on May 15th, the UK on May 18th and in North America on May 19th via Frontiers Music SRL.

“It’s a tribute. A homage. It’s a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago,” says Coverdale. “As I said to Ritchie, you guys set me on an incredible journey that continues today and I couldn’t have asked for better teachers. The university of Deep Purple is an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We can’t wait to play these songs in concert.”

From the opening notes of the classic track “Burn,” to album closer “Stormbringer,” Whitesnake are back and better than ever. Songs like “Lady Double Dealer,” “Soldier of Fortune” and “Sail Away” are given a new energy in the very capable hands of the current Whitesnake line-up featuring David Coverdale on vocals, Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra on guitars, Michael Devin on bass and Tommy Aldridge on drums.

Dear Silence Thieves

Legendary artist and performer and the hardest working guitarist in the business, Joe Satriani, is proud to announce that Award-winning South African guitarist and singer-songwriter Dan Patlansky will be special guest on his Shockwave November 2015 UK Tour.

The news follows the UK release Dan Patlansky’s new album Dear Silence Thieves on April 27, the same day he performs a special album launch showcase concert at London’s The Borderline, followed by dates at Sheffield Greystones (April 28), York Fibbers (April 30) and Poole’s Mr Kyps (May 7).

To celebrate the news, today Patlansky launches the official music video for Backbite, the first single taken from the Dear Silence Thieves album.

In December 2014, Dear Silence Thieves was voted #1 in Blues Rock Review’s Top 20 Blues Rock Albums of 2014 online poll. Earlier that year, Patlansky opened for Bruce Springsteen at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg in front of 64,000 people.

Dan Patlansky – April 2015 UK Solo Concerts

Apr 27: London, Borderline
Apr 28: Sheffield, Greystones
Apr 30: York, Fibbers
May 7: Poole, Mr Kyps


Ever since his debut album, Standing At The Station, followed by his 2004 major label (Blue Note, EMI produced) masterstroke True Blues, Dan Patlansky has been immersing himself in the rich and rollicking world of blues rock music.

In February 2005, and again in July 2006, Selwyn Miller, the New Orleans based manager of David Gates, Bread, Randy Crawford and Petula Clark (amongst others), took Patlansky to New Orleans to showcase his outstanding talent.

In 2006 Fender acknowledged his talent with a guitar and amp endorsement, making him only one of six on the continent to enjoy such a privilege.
