BLACK STAR RIDERS RELEASE TRAILERS FOR THIRD ALBUM, “HEAVY FIRE”

blackstarridersheavycover500

Following the recent announcement of their third studio album, Heavy Fire, Black Star Riders have released a two video trailers in which Damon Johnson, Ricky Warwick and Scott Gorham discuss the band developing their own sound beyond the Thin Lizzy legacy.

Heavy Fire is set for release via Nuclear Blast Entertainment on February 3rd, 2017.

Scott Gotham comments, “We’re absolutely finding our own sound. We’d been on a run with Thin Lizzy for five years, so it’s gonna always take a little while to find your feet with a new sound. But, everybody is an individual here and individually we all write differently anyway so you are going to come up with a different sound eventually. Which is what I think we’ve done with this album”

SINGER PHIL LEWIS LEAVES L.A. GUNS

phillewis400

Singer Phil Lewis has posted the following message on L.A. Guns’ Facebook page:

“Dear friends and fans. With a heavy heart I have to inform you that as of Jan 1, 2017 I will no longer be a member of this line up. I feel I have gone as far as I can in this band, and unless I get out and focus on myself, and something new that has a future, I’m going to stagnate. For the last five years I’ve been enthusiastic to record a new record, Hollywood Forever really recharged my batteries and made me feel very proud to be in this band, but it feels like so long ago now. At this stage I want to walk away with at least a little dignity.

I want to thank you all for your solid support throughout the last 15 years. We’ve had the pleasure and honor of playing so many wonderful countries, and I’ve always made a point of getting out and meeting some of the best, most loyal fans in the business. Your smiling faces will always be a huge part of my adventure, and I want to say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You from the bottom of my heart. What’s the point of making records or playing shows if you don’t have fans for feedback, and I feel blessed to have so many cool people who treasure the music as much as I do as a part of our fan base.

I will continue writing, recording, and performing in the future. I have some solid plans, and I’m also open to where fate will take me on my musical adventure, and I sincerely hope if I’m anywhere near you, you’ll come out and say hi and hear what I’m doing. I love rock and roll, it’s been my religion and salvation for many decades, and I feel the fire burning in my soul to do more. I have no plans on slowing down or retiring anytime soon, so please don’t be sad.

Wish me luck and please stay in touch. Goodbye.

Philip Lewis”

In related news, Frontiers Music/SRL announced that former L.A Guns bandmates, Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns, had been signed to the label and would be releasing a brand new album in the summer of 2017. Since that initial announcement, a little over two months ago, no further details have been released about the project.

KISS GUITARIST ACE FREHLEY ON THE POSSIBILITY OF A KISS REUNION, “I’M NOT RULING IT OUT”

acefrehley400

Original KISS guitarist, Ace Frehley, was a recent guest on Eddie’s Sirius/XM show, Trunk Nation. Highlights from the interview appear below via Blabbermouth.net.

Discussing how his relationship with his former KISS bandmates was exaggerated by the press, for the worse:

“The press colors the fact that we don’t get along, in reality we do. You know, we have disagreements and things are said sometimes, taken out of context. But, I’ve always been friends with those guys and they’ve been friends with me. We may not have agreed about certain things over the years and maybe there were times we didn’t talk. I mean, we created something amazing that withstood the test of time.”

Discussing working with Paul Stanley on the song, Fire And Water, from Frehley’s covers album, Origins, Vol 1:

“Working with Paul again, it was almost as if I had never left the band. I mean, the chemistry was still there. I wasn’t sure he was gonna do the video. When he agreed to sing on Fire And Water, that was a great accomplishment. The record company said, ‘You think Paul will do the video?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know. I’ll give him a call.’ And he was very receptive from day one, and I was really amazed and thought it came out fantastic…Me and Paul have been through a lot over the years. But whenever we hook up, it’s like we’ve never been apart. He was a consummate professional. And I said to him after we had done, like, fifteen takes, I said, ‘I’m gonna shoot some smoking-guitar stuff.’ And I go, ‘You don’t have to hang around, Paul. You can split. I really appreciate all the time you’ve invested in doing the video.’ And he said, ‘No, I’ll wait around in case you need me.’ And it was just terrific. He was a real trooper that day.”

Talking about the possibility of a KISS reunion:

“I haven’t been contacted. I’m not ruling it out. It’s a possibility, I guess. But the ball’s in Paul and Gene’s [Simmons] court. If that’s something that they would like to do to end off the career of KISS, I think it could be… if it was handled correctly, it could be great…And if it happens, it’d be great, and if it doesn’t, I’ll be fine and they’ll be fine.”

What about all the rumors floating around regarding a reunion?:

“There’s been rumors for years, and the rumors are probably… There’s a lot more rumors going around now than there were a few years ago. But, you know, rumors are rumors.”

Frehley also confirmed that he has begun working on music for his next collection of original material, tentatively due in 2017.
