Glasgow-Based Rockers, LOGAN, Prepare to Unleash ‘THE GREAT UNKNOWN’
Producer Keith Olsen certainly has a knack for spotting talent - over the years he has overseen the creation of some truly mammoth rock records - namely Ozzy Osbourne’s‘No Rest for the Wicked’,Whitesnake’s ‘Slide It In’, and the Scorpions’‘Crazy World’.
Logan is in some splendid company with Olsen at the helm of the group’s first world wide release, ‘The Great Unknown.’
‘The Great Unknown’ - available on October 5th, 2010 - will be the first Logan recording to receive a major push Stateside. It will be released on Guardian Angel in conjunction with Mesa Bluemoon through Universal. The group - Kenny Collins (vocals), Al Reilly (lead guitar), Mick Coll (rhythm guitar), Steve Reilly (bass), and Iain Stratton (drums) - is already a major player in Europe. Case in point, they have opened up stadium gigs for Bon Jovi and toured alongside the likes of Alter Bridge and Hinder. In fact, Logan left Alter Bridge vocalist (and current frontman of Slash’s solo band), Miles Kennedy quite impressed, as evidenced by his quote, “They drank Central Europe dry of vodka."
Accolades continuously pour in about this fast-rising band - including praise from such respected publications as Guitarist Magazine("If Logan are taken on by a US label and producer, they could go a long way") and Classic Rock Magazine("Anthemic, stadium filling sound"). Their instantly memorable tracks as “Hallowed Ground,” “Jump in Again,” and “Rock & Roll Way” are ready to take radio by storm - it appears to be only a matter of time until America catches up with the rest of the world, and falls under the hard rockin’ spell of Logan and ‘The Great Unknown.’
