LITTLE CAESAR TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM “EIGHT” ON MARCH 16TH

Little Caesar have signed a global deal with Golden Robot Records for the release of their new album, Eight, on March 16th.

Little Caesar fuses no-nonsense hard rock that harks back to ’70s giants such as Bad Company and Humble Pie with an aching ZZ Top groove and overlay it with classic R&B melodies to produce some mighty fine straight-up good-time rock and roll.

Eight is the band’s first studio album in six years and lead single Time Enough For That is a reflective, semi power ballad that is a total lighters (or phones) in the air AOR smash. With his raspy, soulful vocals, mainman Ron Young leaves his heart on his heavily tattooed sleeve while the emotive, crying guitar solos build the song into an instantly familiar-yet-classic track.

“Little Caesar is excited about joining the ever-growing Golden Robot Records family,” said Young. “We are in great company with a great company. Being based in Australia, which has given birth to some of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll bands, makes us excited to be part of their worldwide expansion. We see great things in 2018 for us and everyone that we share our music with at our new home.”

Mark Alexander-Erber, president and founder of Golden Robot Global Entertainment, added, “With Golden Robot Records currently expanding its artist roster to include bands based in the USA, Canada and Europe, when I met Ron Young in L.A. last year, and having been a fan of Little Caesar for many years, I knew that they would fit perfectly into the growing GRR family. Little Caesar being one of our first global international signings is exciting for myself and the label.”

FORMER JUDAS PRIEST DRUMMER DAVE HOLLAND DEAD AT AGE 69

Former Judas Priest and Trapeze drummer Dave Holland has died at the age of 69.

The news was confirmed by former Priest guitarist KK Downing on Facebook, who wrote, “It is with deep regret that I have to accept the sudden and unexpected news that Dave Holland has passed away.

Dave was a solid friend in life and solid musician both on the stage and in the studio. I will cherish the many gigs we played together and the albums that we made and I will always be grateful to the indelible contribution that Dave gave to Judas Priest.

My sincere condolences to all of Dave’s loved ones, family and friends and to all of the fans that so much appreciated Dave’s musical ability and his life’s work. R.I.P. Dave.”

Additionally, Judas Priest has released a statement via blabbermouth.net saying, “It is with regret that we hear of the passing of Dave Holland. Despite his actions since working with the band, his time with us was amongst the most productive and successful in the band’s career and for that alone he shall be missed.”

Holland co-formed Trapeze with Glenn Hughes in 1969 and played on all six of their albums. He joined Judas Priest in 1979 and went on to appear on many of the band’s classic records including British Steel, Screaming For Vengeance and Turbo.

In 2004, Holland was convicted of attempting to rape a 17-year-old with learning difficulties who he’d been giving drum lessons to.

Holland denied the charge, but was found guilty of one charge of attempted rape and five counts of indecent assault. He was jailed for eight years in the UK and moved to Spain following his release.

No cause of death has been reported, but Spanish newspaper El Progreso states that he died on January 16th and has been cremated.
