On February 20th in Germany, February 23rd in Europe and March 3rd in America, UFO will release their latest studio recording, their 22nd to date.

The album will be called A Conspiracy Of Stars, and the band consisting of Phil Mogg (vocals), Paul Raymond (keyboards, guitar), Vinnie Moore (guitar), Andy Parker (drums) and Rob De Luca (bass) have recorded almost a dozen fantastic new songs, produced and mixed in the Kentish town of Deal by Chris Tsangarides, renowned for his work with acts such as Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy and Gary Moore. A Conspiracy Of Stars will be available as a Digipak (including poster and bonus track), jewel case, vinyl double LP and for download.

More or less simultaneously with the release, UFO are scheduled to go on tour in February and March 2015, playing Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Lithuania and Switzerland, and more, followed by a tour of Britain and Ireland in April and May.

The band is already looking forward to the reactions to their latest release, “A Conspiracy Of Stars is another successful combination of those typical UFO elements with fresh, contemporary ideas. We’re confident that not only our longstanding supporters will get their money’s worth, but that younger rock fans will also enjoy the album. We look forward to seeing you on tour!”

  1. I’m a big fan of UFO, but so far have not been able to see them here in Atlanta, GA. I’ve lived in Atlanta since late 2005 and so far have not seen them, nor Michael Schenker tour this area. I’m originally from northern NJ and have missed out on countless rock/metal bands live since moving here to Georgia. With the exception of a few bands, it looks like most of the classic hard rock and heavy metal acts of the 1970’s/1980’s haven’t toured much of the South since the 1980’s and in the last decade or so have steered clear of this area. As far as the newer UFO albums, I prefer ‘You Are Here’.

    I also wondered about when Schenker left the band originally, what if instead of selecting Paul Chapman they choose Adrian Vandenberg. I also wished it would have worked out with John Norum being in the band instead of Vinnie Moore, as he can bring that more convincing Schenker vibe than Vinnie. Now I do like Vinnie Moore, but his style in my opinion is too much in the vein of finger tapping and use of the whammy bar. I guess the fact that I am a massive Michael Schenker fan doesn’t help in this comparison.
