UFO ANNOUNCES NEW NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES
MINDFLOW TO SUPPORT UFO ON ALL SHOWS
Seminal British rockers UFO have confirmed a new run of North American dates kicking off this September in Santa Rosa, CA. The band will be touring North America in support of their greatest hits collection "Best of a Decade" which is out now on SPV/Steamhammer. UFO is also in the process of working on a new studio album which is scheduled for release in early 2012.
True rock legends such as UFO are characterized not only by the fact that they have added several classic anthems to the annals of rock history, but that their musical output, after many years, still remains at such a consistently high level and they always have something new and fresh coming up. With classic albums such as "Phenomenon", "Force it" and "No Heavy Pettin" Phil Mogg, Vinnie Moore, Andy Parker and Paul Raymond still sound vital and imaginative to this day.
Providing direct support on the tour with be Brazilian rockers MINDFLOW.
Their latest release "With Bare Hands" is available now on Nightmare Records.
Heavy metal, hard rock, modern rock...try to put MINDFLOW's music into a category and you either don't know where to stop or you can't find the words. It's all there - the compelling energy of the rhythm section - drums and bass pounding relentless power.

Robert Plant's journey through the territories that have most acutely informed and inspired his music is perhaps one of the most multi-faceted of any artist from his generation. In a remarkable career that has spanned five decades, Plant has travelled from gold-maned god of hard rock to balladeering country troubadour, a process of reinvention guided by an ever-expanding musical palette and tireless searches through global song. His fantastic voyage has essayed the plantations of Mississippi, the deserts and townships of Africa and the settlements of the Appalachians.
This film follows Robert's incredible and on-going tour of musical styles and acts as travelogue in its unique approach to documenting and reviewing a career that has been built on endless fascination, consistent experimentation and a unique talent that makes the incorporation of his discoveries into a popular contemporary form seem almost effortless.
Featuring rare footage, performance archive, recorded interviews, contributions from his closest collaborators, expert critique from the finest music writers, plus location film, news reports seldom seen photographs and a host of other features.

VOICES OF EXTREME is a New York-based metal/hard rock act that burst onto the scene in 2006.
The band's debut CD "Hypocrite" immediately found favor with critics and listeners alike, propelling them to the forefront of metal’s hierarchy. Experts at their craft, V.O.X. has earned song writing credits on Van Halen's DVD "The Early Years," as well as endorsements with ESP, Charvel and Hartke.
Their line-up includes Don Chaffin on lead vocals, guitarist Nick Gertsson, drummer John Macaluso, and bassist Bob Brennan.
With the task of completing their second full length CD at hand, V.O.X. has added guitarist David Mercado to theirline-up.
Over the past three years, V.O.X. has shared the stage with Paul Di’Anno, Kamelot, Godsmack, Symphony X, Alice in Chains, Dokken, Zebra, and Twisted Sister, proving themselves as a premier live act on the Eastern Seaboard.
The band's continued success and ascension into the ranks of metal royalty have garnered the attention of managers David R. Swales and Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden). The culmination of the band's talent with this management team will mark the precursor to the next chapter of metal.
