NEW DEF LEPPARD ALBUM OUT NOW

Posted in Music, New Music, News with tags , , , on October 30, 2015 by Tickets There

defleppardselftitledcdvoverIt’s finally here, Def Leppard’s 11th studio album is available world wide from today! The self titled record has been highly anticipated by fans and is the groups first studio release since 2008’s Songs From The Sparkle Lounge (Allowing them to officially beat Metallica and Guns N’ Roses in the fastest draw competition….).

Expect a full review soon on Tickets There (don’t laugh) but on first listen it’s sounding pretty decent. Not the exact return to their 80’s style we’d been expecting and a lot more US focused than normal – but some absolute belters. May just be the best record in two decades.

Go now, buy the thing, support the Lepp and come back soon.

‘Super Duper Alice Cooper’ Coming to Dublin

Holy smokes, look what was just announced for next week – Alice ‘The Coop’ COOPER will be (technically, make sure you read the fine print and understand that statement is not factual) in cinema’s across Ireland!

PR Blurb…..now: The story of the rock legend that is Alice Cooper is told in a new documentary called “Super Duper Alice Cooper” and is set for a special one off screening at Omniplex cinemas on Thursday 24th April at 8pm..

Super Duper Alice Cooper is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents everywhere as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as frontman for a group of Phoenix freaks in the sixties to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the seventies to the winking comeback as glam metal godfather in the eighties, the movie pitches Alice against Vincent in a battle for each other’s souls.

Told in the form of a “doc opera,” Super Duper Alice Cooper is a dizzying blend of documentary and rock opera that combines audio interviews with a bounty of Alice Cooper archive footage; concerts, TV appearances, movie cameos, newspaper headlines, magazine spreads and many other visual elements have been cut out, layered and collaged like a cinematic View-Master. Alongside the hits that defined an era, overlooked gems of Alice Cooper’s body of work have been dug up and melded into montages that soundtrack his life.

DarkestEra2014-500x334

Enniskillen Celtic metal five piece …three of which have dark hair, one blonde and another two seemingly between brown and reddish, DARKEST ERA have announced plans to release their second studio album. Sorry, sick of typing out the usual where they’re from and a quick genre label.

Motörhead Announce new album details

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , , , on September 4, 2013 by Tickets There

1150872_672860136079631_1477616986_nThe true lords of rock ‘n’ roll are coming back! It’s been almost three years since The Wörld Is Yours hit the shelves and it’s been a long wait for something new from the mighty Motörhead; especially considering the horrible reports that came from Europe over the summer regarding Lemmy’s health. Well never fear, Lemmy is here and he has new tunes for you. There’s a great press release which I’m including below but..

Aftershock will see the light of day on October 18th – 21st. Also Classic rock will be doing a CD/Mag dealie. NO IRISH SHOWS in the tour so you won’t find a listing of the other dates here. Yeah – that’s how it works, Motörhead or no Motörhead.

Silence, silence

 Silence when you speak to me!

 -Lemmy Kilmister

Like the juggernaut you prayed would keep on crushing you, like the friend that still royally pisses off your parents and like a loyal standard of crunchy, greasy, punky, bluesy, gutsy screw-you rock’n’roll, Motörhead stride out through their 38th year brandishing more swagger and attitude then your ears could begin to comprehend.

On Oct 21st, 2013 Motörhead will deliver their 21st studio album, an enormous and prophetic Aftershock. Recorded at NRG Studios in North Hollywood,it is a true leveller, a crushing confirmation of everything Motörhead stands for, marching from the dust storm to deliver 14 belting statements which see Motörhead in perhaps their best writing form for years. There’s swagger, there’s punch, there’s speed and there’s dirty filthy grooves, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee showing clearly that Motörhead is not simply a band, it’s a genre!

That genre, more than ever, resonates with hearty independence and swashbuckle. Whether it’s “Heartbreaker” throwing hooks and riffs into your head, the double-kick concussiveness of “Paralyzed” with Campbell’s fuelled attack, or the thunderous ride-off-the-Rickenbacker Motörcharge of “Going To Mexico”, Aftershock takes gleeful twists and turns which re-announce the Motörlegend. There’s the smokey biker bar blues in the shape of “Dust And Glass”, Lemmy’s late-night vocals evoking last-call and melancholy, the pogo-powered punk-spiked stab of “Queen Of The Damned” and the deliciously steamy, humid mournful “Lost Woman Blues” which midway through decides to kick over the stool and stomp out the saloon door.

“Steal it if you must, buy it if you can!” says Lemmy, who’s pride in the album is so immense that guests to his home and dressing room in the last couple of months have been treated to extremely loud airings of the rough mixes, while Phil Campbell adds, “I really think the variation on the album shows that we’ve dug deep and produced some of our best work for a long time.”

“It is,” says Mikkey Dee, “a really, really strong Motörhead album, one that really does define everything this band stands for.”

He’s not wrong. Because Motörhead are Motörhead are Motörhead…and their Aftershock will be felt worldwide…

Aftershock: Track Listing:

Heartbreaker
Coup de Grace
Lost Woman Blues
End Of Time
Do You Believe
Death Machine
Dust And Glass
Going To Mexico
Silence When You Speak To Me
Crying Shame
Queen Of The Damned
Knife
Keep Your Powder Dry
Paralyzed
