New Music Video from Grand Slam: “Long Road”

British super group (Ex UFO, Thin Lizzy, Quireboys) Grand Slam have released their new lyric video for “Long Road”.  Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nu2h-NPrqmc

gs logo.jpgWhen we wrote this song, we wrote it about people dealing with illness, losing their loved ones and how they wouldn’t want their loved ones and family to suffer grief and be able to carry on in life and celebrate life, and the Long Road to arrive at peace.

When our friend and fellow guitar player Mikael Fassberg lost his life due to a cruel and devastating illness that took him within weeks of his diagnosis, we had to dedicate this to him and his family and all his friends that had to deal with the loss

A man that touched all of us in the band, as a friend and fellow musician .

RIP Mikael

UFO Confirm Additional North American Tour Dates

British Hard Rock legends UFO have confirmed that they will be returning to North America this Fall.  Some of the previously announced dates have been changed and new shows have been added.  The tour now kicks off October 4th in Poughkeepsie, NY and is currently scheduled to wrap up October 23rd  in Houston, TX.

 

Frontman Phil Mogg commented on the upcoming tour:

 

“USA and Canada tour this October? Are we looking forward to it?  Bet your socks we are. So bring your mates, loved ones, earplugs and hangover remedies. UFO will be delivering.  See you there!”

 

True rock legends such as UFO are characterized not only by the fact that they have added several classic anthems to the annals of rock history, but that their musical output, after many years, still remains at such a consistently high level and they always have something new and fresh coming up.  With classic albums such as “Phenomenon”, “Force it” and “No Heavy Pettin”,Phil Mogg, Vinnie Moore, Andy Parker and Paul Raymond still sound vital and imaginative to this day.

 

UFO’s latest studio album Seven Deadly is available for purchase on AMAZON and iTunes.  Seven Deadly is an atmospherically dense fabric consisting of classy guitars, tight rock grooves and vocals, which are unique to UFO.

UFO Kick off North American Tour This Week

British Hard Rock legends UFO will be kicking off their North American West Coast tour this Thursday November 15th in Chicago, IL. The band is touring in support of their latest album Seven Deadly which was released earlier this year via Steamhammer/SPV. A complete list of dates can be found below.

Guitarist Vinnie Moore commented on the upcoming tour:

“It’s been quite a while since we’ve toured in the USA and I’m really looking forward to it. We have not played here since the new record came out and it’s going to be exciting to play some of the new tunes. And it is always great to see our awesome fans!”

Seven Deadly is an atmospherically dense fabric consisting of classy guitars, tight rock grooves and vocals which are unique to UFO. Ultimate-Guitar says of Seven Deadly: “UFO has re-entered back through Earth’s atmosphere to bring the world another excellent, classic sounding album and it is one you must pick up.”

UFO frontman Phil Mogg’s thoroughly impressive vocal performance goes hand in hand with the awesome compositions on Seven Deadly. The classic rock of “Burn Your House Down” features all the important UFO strengths, “Mojotown” sees the musicians sound tougher than ever, and last but not least “Year Of The Gun” features a pointed reference to UFO’s early days.

Seven Deadly is available for purchase on AMAZON and iTunes.

The Treatment’s This Might Hurt Proves You Will Enjoy A Little Pain


When your head starts bobbing up and down and your arms are air drumming from the very first notes, that is always a good sign. That is how it was when PMM played The Treatment‘s opening track “The Departed” from their debut This Might Hurt. For fans of heavy rock with all the beautiful basics harkening back to when bands let the music do the talking; this band is for you. The Treatment is tight, fast, and unforgiving in their pursuit to “simply rock”.
The Treatment is a five-year old outfit out of Cambridge UK. Sighting early influences of UFO, Def Leppard, Guns N’ Roses Aerosmith, and Thin Lizzy they certainly stay true to their roots. The Treatment are “unashamedly inspired by an era when rock bands looked like rock bands and were generally intent on causing a stir (both onstage and off); an era when the lifestyle was important, when music was everything and vinyl was king”.
This Might Hurt was produced by Laurie Mansworth (guitarist/songwriter with UK melodic rockers Airrace) and mixed by Tony Newton at Iron Maiden guitarist Steve Harris’ Barnyard Studios, and the their fine tuned choices show with the material that has that perfect mix of raw with some polish added in for good measure. Check out highlight tunes, The Departed, Shake The Mountain, Drink, F**k, Fight, Road Rocket, and Just Tell Me Why (acoustic). This Might Hurt is a well crafted record with all the trappings of good time arena rock that has a place in all of our hearts and it showcases an extremely talented group of musicians. Fortunately for the band and audiences, apparently Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx got a good taste of what The Treatment had to offer when he saw the video for the sure to be concert anthem ‘Drink, F**k, Fight’ single. Thus The Treatment has been on the road opening for Motley Crue and Kiss keeping up with the tradition of Nikki being on the forefront of up and coming bands and bringing them out on tour.

Since 2008, when 15-­‐year-­‐old schoolboy drummer Dhani Mansworth (son of Laurie) decided to put a band together, inspired by the all-­‐time greats of the genre (AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, etc.) and working under the wing of his father and manager Laurie (More, Airrace, Roadstar), the search was on to find fellow rock-­‐headed, leather-­‐ wrapped musicians old an’ wise beyond their years. Unable to source players of the required standard, however, this search was soon extended to more far-­‐flung parts of the country, and bit by bit the line-­‐up began to take shape. First to join was lead guitarist Ben Brookland, then bassist Rick Newman (aka Swoggle), then rhythm guitarist Tagore Grey… but it was the crucial position of front-­‐man that proved the hardest to fill, and it was a full six months before vocalist Matt Jones was (finally) discovered in Norwich (UK).

The Treatment now formed they focused on intense practise and writing sessions, but rather than go the conventional route of booking rehearsal studios then travelling back and forth, the five decided that to get the very best out of themselves they would need to focus 100 per cent on the mighty task at hand; with school days now behind them (but only just), they opted to move into the Mansworth family home in Cambridge, where they could eat, sleep and breathe the music they loved around the clock, without distractions, without compromise.
12 months later, The Treatment – a fully-­‐rounded, finely-­‐honed rock‘n’roll machine with a battery of great songs at its fingertips – emerged blinking into the sunlight, guitars at the ready, sights set on the stars.
With a run of European special guest appearances now complete (playing with the likes of Black Stone Cherry, Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy, Steel Panther, Motorhead and more) and European festival performances being ticked off at a rapid rate (Sonisphere, High Voltage, Hard Rock Hell, Download, etc.), the band are now ready to take things to the next level, setting their sights on the American market.
Lucky for Pittsburgh on September 2 (and all the dates with Crue and Kiss) we will be able to witness them first hand as they give us the treatment it might hurt but we’re pretty sure you’ll like it.
They also have scheduled some dates for club shows on their days off:
August 20th- Hawthorne Theater- Portland, Oregon
August 21st- The A Club- Spokane, Washington (supporting Bobaflex)
August 23rd – Base Camp- Denver, Colorado
September 6th- The Rave Bar- Milwaukee, Wisconsin
September 9th- The Frequency- Madison, Wisconsin
September 17th-The Met Café- Providence, Rhode Island
