  • album cover - Tour for 25th Anniversary of Love/Hate 'Wasted in America' Tour for 25th Anniversary of Love/Hate ‘Wasted in America’

    jizzy17

    The year was 1992—not so long ago? Actually it was 25 years ago, before kids and car payments, before growing up, it was still long hair and staying up all night listening to your favourite music and not having to pay for it the next morning.

    Then there was the rock band, Love/Hate. Out and about with Ozzy Osbourne on their No More Tears European tour. Somewhere in the middle of the mayhem an early morning knock came on the tour bus door. Always the first one up Jizzy Pearl opened the door a crack and peered out—“Congratulations…” said an Ozzy roadie– “Your new record just broke the Top 20!” That record was WASTED IN AMERICA, second in line and coming fast on the heels of their successful first record BLACKOUT IN THE RED ROOM.

    Last year, Jizzy Pearl did a UK tour in celebration of Blackout in the Red Room’s 25th anniversary and next year he will be here for the 25th anniversary of ‘Wasted in America’.

    For the first time ever the record will be played in it’s entirety, with many tracks getting a rare airing – and of course, plenty of other cuts and favourites will be also played.

    Alongside SSD Concerts, we are promoting the Newcastle show again – and – this is a proper ‘return home’ type show as with Trillians now up and running at full steam and back to glory, by request – Jizzy will be playing there.

    The date is Thursday 16th March 2017.  Tickets are on sale now at only £12 advance (likely £14 on the door) and available here (clicky) or search on www.seetickets.com

    Special guests on this tour are Bulletproof Rose.

    As always, Jizzy is happy to do a meet and greet with fans after the show for autographs, photos and all of that. Proper star 🙂

  • wasteland - Rabia Sorda - The King of the Wasteland Rabia Sorda – The King of the Wasteland

    Rabia Sorda have released new single ‘The King of the Wasteland’ via Out of Line Music.

    The Mexican-German inferno-mob Rabia Sorda unleashes the primal force of wrath in an anthemic Electro-Punk-attack.

    A storm is coming. A new beginning needs the complete and utter annihilation of the old. Anger is an energy… and each generation needs its own kind of rebellion. Like a force of nature, Rabia-Sorda- and Hocico-front-berzerker Erk Aicrag unleashes a cleansing tornado of hatred. “King Of The Wasteland” combines hard Electro with raw Punk and Industrial to a modern anthem of insurgence. Bundled with b-side “Monster”, which effectively bonds retro-electronica with a punky attitude, plus three adequately infernal remixes, Rabia Sorda crown themselves kings of the wasteland and let expectations rise for the upcoming new album.

    Rabia Sorda play Newcastle Riverside on June 29th with Combichrist and Filter – 50% of tickets gone – get yours from www.seetickets.com here


  • combideath - Combichrist - New Album Out Now Combichrist – New Album Out Now

    New Combichrist album, ‘This is Where Death Begins’, has now been released on Out of Line Music.

    You can listen to previews of each track on the new album here.

    The new long player “This Is Where Death Begins“ is an apocalyptic behemoth of guitars, electronica, infernal drums and dark elemental force.

    Thudding tribal drums, guitars slammed in your face like a 20-ton-weight, chopped up synth-attacks and in the midst of it Andy LaPlegua rampaging like an unrestrained demon of wrath: on their new album, “This Is Where Death Begins”, Combichrist are conjuring up a proverbial hellfire. A black monolith of unbridled aggression. Produced by Oumi Kapila (Filter) and Andy LaPlegua, with guest vocals from Chris Motionless (Motionless In White) and Ariel Levitan (MXMS) and mastered by the legendary Vlado Meller (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slipknot, to name just a few), Combichrist have created a milestone of their career.

    Combichrist play Newcastle Riverside on June 29th with Filter and Rabia Sorda – 50% of tickets sold already – get yours from seetickets here.
