News Update for Thursday September 13th, 2012

Hi Folks,
Well, this week has been crazy with work, some fun with the kids and sad with the loss of a friend and there is still today and tomorrow to go, until we can call it the weekend.
I guess that is indeed life, but all of that aside, there is some seriously great music around right now and there are things going on that are exciting and it's time that I get to that.
People may be surprised to know this, but one album currently being slotted in and played a number of times, is the latest from Canada's rockers, Loverboy.
I've always thought, what a terrible band name to be honest and with some of the tags I've heard related to them, well, it sounds dodgy.
Here's the thing though, realistically, they have produced some great music over the years and new album 'Rock 'n' Roll Revival' contains three new songs and many old Loverboy tracks, that many fans love, re-recorded and it all sounds good!
Anyway, I need to back off that and to give you the news updates or I'll be giving you the album review, before the news! LOL!
Enjoy the rest of your week, Cheers, Al

British HARD ROCK Masters TEN come back with their 10th studio album "Heresy And Creed"
 Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of TEN’s anticipated new studio album entitled “Heresy And Creed” on October 19th in Europe and October 22nd in North America.

Following the band’s successful come back in 2011 with “Stormwarning” TEN are now back with another slice of Melodic Hard Rock of Epic proportions.
For TEN’s tenth studio album singer and songwriter Gary Hughes has wored very hard to live up to the expectations that surround the band’s new album. The new lineup featuring the new axeman Dan Mitchel, Darrel Treece-Birch on keyboards and Max Yates on drums – along with long time member John Halliwell and returning bassist Steve McKenna - has complemented Hughes efforts in creating the best TEN album ever.
Musically it once again marks the perfect union between grandiose and epic Hard Rock tunes. Very melodic, hook-laden singalong songs with a scattering of immense and haunting power ballads to complete the typical TEN tapestry. Gary Hughes says: "It is a particularly strong selection of material. I feel this is possibly our most mature, and diverse collection of songs ever. There is literally something in there for everyone and every taste".
 “Heresy and Creed” is a true classic Ten and a groundbreaking, monumental album in more ways than one: classic hook laden songs. Power and melancholy with not a single ‘filler’ in sight. Also thanks to a superb mix courtesy again of Dennis Ward, “Heresy And Creed” will prove once again that Ten are at the top of their genre.
Ten are back and better than ever!

Freddie Mercury - The Great Pretender  DVD


 New biography of the late Queen frontman available on DVD and Blu-ray September 25!

Freddie Mercury was one of the most charismatic, complex and fascinating characters in British rock music. The story of Queen is a well known one but this new film focuses on Freddie Mercury and the solo projects he worked on outside of Queen.

Using extensive archive footage of interviews with Freddie Mercury, concerts, video shoots and personal material, much of it previously unseen, along with new interviews with friends and colleagues, a portrait emerges of a man who was very different to his flamboyant onstage public persona.

A generous, caring, thoughtful man with a self-deprecating sense of humor and a genuine passion for music.
Freddie Mercury touched the lives of millions through his career both with Queen and as a solo performer.
