Andy McCoy released a new single "The Way I Feel"

The song `The way I feel´ is a song from the sessions for my upcoming album. It came about while I was thinking about when Angela and I decided to move from Los Angeles. Just hitting the highway and searching for a piece of Paradise. It is a pretty Universal example of Escapism. The working title was `The West Coast Song´ due to it´s jangling 12 stringed Guitars and Infectious Melody.

Thank you,

Andy McCoy

TUSKA CELEBRATES 20TH ANNIVERSARY – HIM TO HEADLINE

That’s a fact: Finland’s longest running and boldest metal festival, Tuska, will be celebrated for the 20th time the coming summer. It’s been a long and rocky road from the depths of Tavastia-klubi, through two different outdoor venues to Suvilahti, where Tuska settled in 2011. The 20th anniversary will take place during the weekend of 30.6.-2.7.2017. Be sure to mark that in your calendars – in blood.

At last have the stars and hearts aligned, and HIM’s first ever Tuska-appearance is finally coming to fruition. HIM’s Tuska show has been in the works practically the entire existence of the festival. It’s also noteworthy that this will be HIM’s first outdoor show in their hometown Helsinki.

The 69 Eyes unveil music video 'Miss Pastis' and new tourdates

Helsinki Vampires THE 69 EYES are ready to unveil their new music video for "Miss Pastis". The song is a rock hymn about French alcohol & women with the simple chorus “Salut, ça va!” and comes off their latest morbid masterpiece »Universal Monsters«. The clip was once again directed and filmed by fronter Jyrki 69 himself and the Finnish quintet decided to release it on "La Fête Nationale", France’s National Day on July 14th.


“It’s a great driving rocker of a song which has already made people move in our live set. I got the idea for the lyrics in Marseille, France where pastis is cheap and girls are pretty. I shot the video in the gardens of Palace of Versailles – I wanted to make it look like crazy, little art film influenced by as much Jacques Tati as Federico Fellini and classic French films,” tells singer Jyrki 69.

But the Vampires have just been awaken and therefore, they also announced new tour dates for this November - and three special UK shows together with the legendary dark rocker from THE MISSION. Jyrki 69 states with excitement:


“I remember first time seeing the ‘Wasteland’ video on Sky Channel. It hit me hard, I even got the issue of SMASH Hits with Wayne on the cover! “God’s Own Medicine” is still one of my favorite albums and without a doubt THE 69 EYES wouldn’t sound like we do without THE MISSION. Can’t wait to get back to play in the UK and for the Eskimos!”

Daniel Lioneye will release a new album: VOL III

When formed in 2001, Daniel Lioneye originally consisted of Ville Valo (HIM) on drums, Mige (HIM) on bass and Linde (HIM) on guitar and vocals. That year, they released The King Of Rock 'n' Roll in Finland and Germany, a 'tongue in cheek' psychedelic stoner rock album. Performing festival shows in Finland under the name ‘Daniel Lioneye And The Joint Rollers,’ their music soon reached international audiences when the title track of the album was selected as the theme song for Bam Margera's MTV show, Viva La Bam. In 2006, "The King Of Rock 'n' Roll" was the most played Finnish song in the world (right after Sibelius, of course).
 
In 2008, Linde wanted to do a Daniel Lioneye album completely different than the last. The follow-up album, simply titled VOL II (The End Records), was an extreme rock n’ roll album much heavier than their first, quite noticeably influenced by black metal. The album represented everyday life- divorce, dealing with difficult situations and people, cannabis psychosis, extreme nightmares, self-realization, sex, moving on, standing up for yourself, anger management and the universe.
 
Now, Daniel Lioneye has teamed up yet again with The End Records (US) to release VOL III, an album that is, in many ways, a combination of their previous two. Basking in magnetic glow of the northern lights, this album deals with an existential crisis- depression, disappointment, being lost, meaninglessness. Says Linde, “VOL III is heavier, with more fuzzy guitars, more singing, and less growling. The drumming is very ‘metal.’” He jokes, “You can actually hear the vocals on this album.” 
 
 
Single Ravensong will be released on July 1st, 2016 and the album VOL III is available worldwide August 19, 2016 in digital and CD formats.

Daniel Lioneye:
Linde - vocals, guitar
Mige - bass
Burton - keyboards
Sepi - drums

Helsinki's most famous vampires, THE 69 EYES, recently announced the release of their new 11th studio album, entitled »Universal Monsters«, which will be released on April 22nd via Nuclear Blast.

To bridge the gap until the album is unleashed, the band have launched the fifth making of trailer today. Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQ1gZ25peQ8



Vocalist Jyrki commented:
"There's about a month for the actual album release, so here's one more chance to hear new samples from the album. And who would be better to deliver them than the main composer himself! Believe it or not kids, this music is still created by guitars played by humans!"

Ville Juurikkala is also be seen as an important part of the band, creating their photos and also the new video for first single 'Jet Fighter Plane'.

 

“We do this from friendship and love for rock 'n' roll. THE 69 EYES, producer Johnny Lee Michaels and photographer Ville Juurikkala have done this together over two decades. This is our lifestyle. This is also how we see the world right now.”

"As I first heard the instrumental demo of the song, it immediately sounded for me like a song from the early 80’s new wave/post punk days. You know, like when the music was heavily inspired by David Bowie’s dark visions, the Cold War, the threat of nuclear war and »1984«-kind of the future. So I wrote such lyrics from the past – and all of a sudden, the history started to repeat itself and the Cold War winds started to blow again! It was very strange - all of a sudden THE 69 EYES have a song which is very "today" and even political, longing back to the days of peace," explains singer Jyrki 69. "We also wanted the video to be artistic and visually capture the vibe and theme of the song. There is hope but also darkness, violence and innocence. And it’s only goth 'n' roll."



The new album’s cover artwork was conceived by Ville Juurikkala - known for his work with NIGHTWISH, AMORPHIS, HIM, APOCALYPTICA and MICHAEL MONROE. As the album title »Universal Monsters« refers, the band are captured in movie monster lightning, showing them as well classic and timeless creatures. “The covers are planned and designed as an old-school CD covers - remember when the booklets used to be as exciting as the album itself?! It will actually have five different covers - each member of the band can be used as a cover creature of their own. Ville has really succeeded in capturing the classic movie vibe for the shots without any special make-up or photo shopping. THE 69 EYES are the universal rock ’n’ roll monsters - not so many of us left anymore,” says THE 69 EYES vocalist Jyrki. “So from real fans I wish they would get the actual CD in their hands to get the full album treatment as we want it to be experienced!”

Reckless Love´s InVader crossing borders

The finnish ambassadors of  ”merry metal” Reckless Love have been playing their melodic hard rock over a decade now. The band is known for their colourful and entertaining live shows and catchy songs about the timeless rock ´n roll subjects: girls, girls, girls.

Outside their homebase Finland Reckless Love has a remarkable following in the UK, in which the band has toured frequently over the past five years.

Reckless Love is releasing their fourth album InVader March 11th. The album will be available in many European countries with  UK and Germany included - and in the US as well. The guitar player of the band Pepe Cedergren says InVader is their bravest and most versatile album. But the result didn´t come easy. It meant ”blood, sweat and tears” for the guys in the band.

For the first time in the band´s history, we took a total break from touring for writing.  We really wanted to put all the focus in creating great songs. We wanted to stretch the genre limits even more than before. We did all kinds of experiments, some of them pretty far out from our comfort zone, and finally came to square one of the joyous hard rock music, the Reckless Love music.”

Over the course of their career Reckless Love have many times challenged the carved into stone kind of hard rock traditions and beliefs.  When their biggest hit, the shamelessly poppy ”Hot” came out in 2011, the genre purists were saying the guys are digging their own grave. The history has shown that was not the case.

Also InVader flirts with pop, even with electro, but  then again it beautifully connects the best parts of the hard rock legacy into their new songs, such as the first single Monster. The song about the modern woman reminds us of Alice Cooper, Mötley Crue and at times even The Queen.

Reckless Love starts their 25 show UK-European tour March 4th with their opening act Santa Cruz. The tour starts From Bristol and ends up in Moscow in April 3rd. Check the tour dates & ticket infos here: http://www.recklesslove.com

metal four piece even stronger than before."

THE DEL-LORDS FINNISH GIGS HAVE BEEN CANCELED!!

Please see below from the Del-Lords. Eric Ambel has broken his foot and needs re-constructive surgery. His doctor has forbidden him to fly.
 
We have no option but to postpone the coming up dates. As you'll see from the band's statement, they are bitterly disappointed and commited to rescheduling just as soon as they know what Eric's recuperation period will be.
 
Should you require any medical proof of his accident, please let me know.
 
Well, just when we thought it was safe to go back in the water, or on a plane, or a stage, or pretty much anywhere, the powers of the Universe have decided, "Not so fast, pally". As Eric reported just a few days ago, with the photo to prove it, he had an accident at home, and slipped and broke his fibula. You might remember that photo of him in that compression apparatus, and here today we present the follow-up to the compression apparatus - a full-on foot, ankle, leg, stabilizing boot. Judging by just the look of it, i would say it is mighty uncomfortable.
So, what is the skinny on all this, the headlines, the story so far? It is surgery for my guitar brother, our producer, our friend and colleague. Eric will meet with the surgeon on Tuesday of next week, and get the lowdown on what he will be facing. Besides the fun and games of surgery itself, then he will get an idea of what he will be facing recovery-wise. I am no doctor, but i am sure it will be a monster drag, not without discomfort and pain, and will take some time.
So, by now you can see this taxi coming like it's coming up 6th Ave, after midnight, in the rain. Yes, it pains us all - Eric most of all - to announce that the upcoming shows, while still upcoming, are not going to happen in September. We have to cancel and reschedule everything for now, as we just do not have the necessary info at this time to say when we will be making up those dates, both Europe and NYC, and Joisey. We will absolutely make good on every one of those dates, as well as starting the recording of a new record as soon as we can.
We are sorry to have to make this announcement, but such is the fickle finger of Fate. After a year away for Frank and myself to have and recover from surgery, it feels more than a little unfair of the Universe to fuck with us this way, but we must do what we must do.
Of course, just in case, and before anyone suggests this - there is not a chance in Hell of hiring a sub for Eric. Eric is completely and absolutely irreplaceable for even one minute, let alone a tour. As you know, he is one of a kind - our kind. We are not the Del-Lords without him, and that's that. Just in case, someone wanted to suggest it. Ya know, Mick would wait all night for Keith, and we will wait as long as it takes for Eric

THE 69 CATS FINALLY BRINGS THEIR SHOW TO FINLAND AUGUST 2015

The 69 Cats was born out of Jyrki 69’s musical interest towards 50’s rock’n roll, rockabilly and Elvis. After a holiday trip to Memphis, Tennessee and a visit to the legendary Sun Studios, Jyrki made up his mind about forming his own roots band. With the “coolest players in the biz”, naturally.

 

The line-up, all-American except for the Finnish born singer, plays heavy duty rockabilly and rock’n roll songs. Members of The 69 Cats are known to have previously played with such artists as Blondie, The Cramps, The Rockats and The 69 Eyes.

 

With my gothrock-background we like to showcase material from the darker side of the alley, smirks Jyrki 69.

 

Until now The 69 Cats have released ”Bad Things”-EP (2013) and ”Transylvanian Tapes”-album (2014) on California based Cleopatra Records. The released material consists of covers from e.g. Elvis, Bauhaus and the Rocky Horror Picture Show - all with a modern twist.

 

The band has been gigging occasionally around the USA for two years. Their first European tour takes place in May, and finally in August, The 69 Cats will debut live in Finland.

 

Because of my heritage Finland is sort of the spiritual homeland of the band, says Jyrki 69.

 

On drums at the Finnish shows is a man very well-known to the Finnish audience: Nicky Turner of the Lords of the New Church. 

 

There’s something for everyone here, whether you’re a fan of rockabilly-, psychobilly- goth or even Hanoi Rocks!”

 

 

The band line-up in Finland:

 

Jyrki 69 (The 69 Eyes) – vocals

Danny B. Harvey (Rockats, The Head Cat, Nancy Sinatra, Wanda Jackson) – guitars

Chopper Franklin (The Cramps) – bass

Nicky Turner (Lords Of The New Church) – drums

HELLDONE 2014 SPECIAL GUESTS!!!

MON 29.12. RAMBO RIMBAUD

This mysterious act from 'somewhere behind God's back' has until now kept the lowest of low profiles. The few who managed to catch a glimpse of Rambo Rimbaud's live appearances under various monikers in the mid noughties confess in unison that they had been blown away. 'It's hard to put a finger on the music, other than it being out of this world, emotional and very powerful. I actually remember wondering where they have disappeared!' After these humble beginnings, a series of unfortunate events brought about a forced hiatus of almost ten years, but now Rambo Rimbaud is finally working on its debut album, tentatively entitled "Militantly Violent Libertine".

www.ramborimbaud.com

 

TUE 30.12. DANIEL LIONEYE & THE ROLLERS

The Rollers called it quits after playing only a handful of shows in 1999-2000. Too much, too soon. Despite of their relatively short lifespan this first manifestation of HIM guitarist Linde’s solo career managed to release an album appropriately titled “The King of Rock’n Roll”. The title track became the theme song of Bam Margera’s TV show Viva La Bam. The rest of the songs, like, say, International Pussy Lover, they became something else. Radio hits they weren’t, but the heart of rock’n’roll skipped a beat, nevertheless. Expect a healthy dose of root remedies rammed down your throats by messieurs Daniel Lioneye, Bad Mize and Bil Bao. Mercy!

BREAKING NEWS: on Tuesday DJ Jussi69 will be manning the decks at Helldone’s Doomsday Disco @ Semifinal. He may or may not repeat this feat on New Year’s Eve.

WED 31.12. DANIEL CAVANAGH (UK)

On New Year’s Eve the audience will be guided out of the valley of death (where they have been led by Kuolemanlaakso, the night’s intense opener) to the dawn of a new morning by the one and only Daniel Cavanagh. The Anathema guitarist and chief songwriter is indeed the perfect guide, in both the spiritual and musical sense. His band has recently released a new album called “Distant Satellites” which leans increasingly on electronica, but in his solo shows Danny relies on his voice, acoustic guitar and a few chosen samples. Not to mention a bunch of divine songs!

KUOLEMANLAAKSO set release date for new SVART album, reveal first track

Last Friday, SVART RECORDS set February 28th as the international release date for KUOLEMANLAAKSO's Tulijoutsen, the highly acclaimed Finnish death-doomsters' second album and their most ambitious work to date. Produced once again by Triptykon/Dark Fortress guitarist V. Santura, KUOLEMANLAAKSO's Tulijoutsen (“The Fire Swan”) explores unconquered grounds of heaviness and pushes the band into a new level of melancholy. The 50-minute magnum opus was inspired by the grandeur of the Finnish forests, serene eeriness of the lakes, and early 1900s poetry and folklore. Thus, it was only natural for the band to live the lyrics, so to speak, and isolate themselves in a secluded location in the middle of the woods and capture the true essence of the songs on hard disk.

The first fruit of Tulijoutsen to be revealed is the alternating drifting/crushing "Tuonen tähtivyö," which can be heard in its entirety HERE.

Helldone On The Road 2013

HIM will be touring Finland for the first time since 2008. The Helldone On The Road support acts are:

 

PERTTI KURIKAN NIMIPÄIVÄT

Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät (Pertti Kurikka’s Name Day) is a punk rock band formed by four learning disabled guys in Helsinki in 2009. They are also the stars of award winning documentary ”The Punk Syndrome”, a film that follows the band’s journey from their rehearsal room to festival stages and into the limelight. Their latest release is four track EP ”Jarmo”. Is this the last punk band in the world?

kovasikajuttu.fi/en/about-the-band

 

BEASTMILK

Beastmilk’s music poignantly combines haunting clean vocals, darkly shimmering melodies and a throbbing rhythmic pulse to create an atmospheric yet energetic journey into post-punk's past, present, and definitely its future. In June 2013 the band flew to Boston, USA to record at GodCity Studio with the legendary Kurt Ballou (Converge). The members of Converge had found the Helsinki quartet online, loved them, and ordered both their 7"s, with Ballou soon offering to produce their debut album ”Climax” at his world-famous studio.

www.beastmilk.me

 

ODALISQUE

Helsinki based shock rock outfit featuring HIM guitarist Linde’s kid brother Jude Natas on drums. Instead of brotherly love expect to get an heartfelt dose of ’up yours!’ served in the way only one’s younger sibling can. Just the right band to kick off the proceedings, then. Further proof can be found on ”Fuck Parental Advisory”, Odalisque’s debut album released in July.

Kuolemanlaakso to release a new EP

In 2012, the Finnish Doom-Death scene saw newcomer Kuolemanlaakso ascend directly to the ranks of its elite with the critically acclaimed debut Uljas uusi maailma (#42 on the Official Finnish Album Chart and #6 on the Rumba Chart). In support of Uljas uusi maailma, Kuolemanlaakso toured its native country, hitting some of Finland’s biggest and most respected clubs, then adding a performance at the 2013 Tuska Open Air Festival.

Feeding off of this momentum, Kuolemanlaakso planned new material on the road and entered a secret, secluded location in the forests of Finland, once again with acclaimed producer-engineer-guitarist V. Santura (Woodshed Studios, Dark Fortress, Celtic Frost, Triptykon). In the course of writing and recording, it was soon made obvious that Kuolemanlaakso had not only enough material for a full-length album, but for an EP as well.

”Our goal was to create the tightest and most balanced entities for both releases. The EP introduces our current style in a more straightforward and shorter form, whereas the full-length evolved into something more epic, stated guitarist-keyboardist and main songwriter Laakso.
“The EP tracks are quite different from one other, with each song displaying a different side of the band and what we are capable of”.

Musta aurinko nousee EP, to be released on November 29th via Svart Records, includes three new Kuolemanlaakso songs, and a captivating cover version of Juice Leskinen’s classic by the same name. The EP will be released as a limited digipak CD and a strictly limited 12” vinyl with three different colors (100 copies / color)."

Energetic rock'n'roll ambassadors Reckless Love, who breathe new life into 80´s hair metal, will release a new album, their third, on 30.8.!

The name of the album is Spirit and the first single from the album, Night On Fire, is currently at radio. While in preparation of the new album, the band also received great news on their earlier release - Animal Attraction passed the gold sales mark!

The new album has been put together with great care, with the band working closely side by side with producer Ilkka Wirtanen. There is the promise of an even more hedonistic sound, with unbridled and infectious vibes.

Olli tells us of the record making process: "This is a return to where it all began, to the clean hair metal music and almost naive joy of life. This band exudes lust and enthusiasm. We’re here to live life to the fullest and enjoy it! And that’s how making of this album felt. It sorta encompasses the message of the album and the Reckless Love spirit. The lyrics revolve around sheer euphoria, chasing one’s dreams, having fun and bittersweet love. After all, that’s what makes the world go round. There’s also a couple of songs about two people longing for one another, and about today’s world – all from the Reckless Love point of view.  The compositions are simple, irresistible, pop-spiced good mood heavy metal. On the new album we also get to exhibit our most “metallic” side ever.

Last November we’d been on the road for almost two years and recorded our second album in between gigs. This time we decided to take the time and really focus on the in-studio work as we’d done with our first record. The work’s proven fruitful, and now it feels like we've got our hottest album here - so far. Also, being off the road has done us good and it feels like the band has new-found power and enthusiasm. During the summer we’ll do a couple of gigs and recharge our batteries, because in August we’ll kick off a new tour in support of this album. We’re already anxiously waiting for it! We’re going to hit the road with a bang, we're in great shape!"

Reckless Love's gigs are always a special experience, and the band will be seen gigging across Finland in the fall. Also, in October they’re going to do some shows in Great Britain. In June, Reckless Love was seen warming up for their idols KISS at the Hartwall Arena. This week the band performs Friday at the first Rock The Beach festival in Helsinki and later in the evening in Turku acoustically. Detailed tour information can be found at www.recklesslove.com or www.redberg.fi

Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät are preparing for a busy festival summer!
 
The drummer Toni comments on their life on tour:
"We've rehearsed, played shows and got our fees. Everything has went well, the audience have liked and danced with us. Pertti doesn't like humor and neither does Sami. Sami continuously tells to stop it. Pertti complained about Sami commanding us all the time. Kari lost his hat. He then accuses me, just like Sami. I don't believe them and it makes me feel sad. I lose my temper with these guys. We play at festivals and drink coca-cola, although Pertti takes Fanta. Sami and Kari are behaving politely and well. Sami says to me: "where's my hat?". Kari lost his hat on a gig and he started accusing me and shouting to Kalle. I get along with the band but Sami is one sort of a big guy who doesn't want to play the song "Kallio". That's because he's so bourgeois.

The 69 Eyes to release their new single ”Red” digitally on August 10th.

Helsinki’s own goth-rockers, The 69 Eyes, announced earlier this summer the release of their new studio album “X”. The upcoming album was recorded in Stockholm with the help of producer-group ”On The Verge”. The first single off the album is “Red” and it will be released August 10th. The single was mixed by longtime Kent-producer Stefen Boman.
 
The video for the single was shot in July in Sweden with legendary director Patric Ullaeus. “We’ve known Patric for years and talked about a joint project, so it was about time! Since our new album is ”X” was largely recorded in Sweden, it felt natural to shoot the video there as well, with a Swedish director. I was really impressed by David Fincher’s film “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” and wanted that feeling on our video” says Jyrki Linnankivi. “We shot the video in a mantion called Bjertorp Slott on the outskirts of Gothenburg. The video is a combination of Swedish landscapes, sports cars, Playboy-girls and Helsinki vampires. This is the most esthetically beautiful 69 Eyes-video yet.”

Stalingrad Cowgirls call it quits

The band will play a farewll-gig in its birthplace of Rovaniemi on August11th at Simerock-festival. Before their final show they’ll play a club-gig at Suisto-klubi in Hämeelinna.

The punky girl-trio started their career at a competition for bands in  the Lapland town of Rovaniemi.

“We decided not to ruin the band just because we don’t have enough time to dedicate to it. We realized it was time for some tough decisions. Originally we had planned to do this only as long as it was fun and came naturally. Now we’re going to bury Stalingrad Cowgirls with honor and smiling through the tears” says vocalist-guitarist Enni Kivelä.

Stalingrad Cowgirls released two albums during the course of its career (Somewhere High, Kiss Your Heart Goodbye) and made their break-through by ambitiously touring clubs and festivals in Finland, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Japan, China and Russia. The band has supported the likes of Iggy Pop, Muse, Mötley Crüe, Michael Monroe and Billy Idol. 

Gigs:

Aug. 4th, , Suisto-klubi, Hämeenlinna, Finland

Bikenic afterparty w/ Mika Järvinen & Crazy Sabbath

The street is completely transformed for the festival, when the streets are covered in grass and a gentle market-atmosphere takes over. The wood-burning sauna was a big hit last year! Shop-owners will line the streets with their stalls selling design, food and music.
Sun Roba is an event to enjoy together with friends and since it's free, there's really no excuse not to go!

RedBerg Agency is involved with producing the musical acts at the festival with the Sun Roba-organization. Read more:

RECKLESS LOVE TAKE OVER THE UK FOR ONE FULL MONTH

GET RECKLESS IN OCTOBER WITH A MONTH OF MERRY METAL!

Hot off their UK tour with Black Veil Brides and D.R.U.G.S, Finnish rockers Reckless Love have just announced that they will return to the UK in October for a headline tour which includes a residency slot at London’s Barfly.

The band will perform every Thursday in October at London’s prestigious Barfly venue in Camden, harking back to the years when legendary acts such as Guns N’ Roses and Hanoi Rocks would regularly take over London’s marquee club.

Touring the rest of the UK while basing themselves in London, the self-styled Merry Metallers will put on a special weekly show in Camden Town, with each set a unique celebration in its own right.

“We are very exited about this!!” says lead singer Olli Herman. “Our reception in the UK has always been over the top, but because of the busy situation in Finland we've felt that the party's been cut a wee bit short every time we've been over. So, we decided to stay a little longer this time and treat our fans with a chance to catch us live all over the UK for four weeks in a row!!! Every Thursday we also get a chance to do special shows at Camden's own Barfly, which was the very 1st place we ever played in the UK and therefore it'll always be a special venue for Reckless Love. It's gonna be one hell of an October and we can't wait to kick it off already. Stay Reckless.”

You can catch them at the following dates, tickets go on sale 9am Friday 11th May.

The Exploited Australia - New Zealand tour cancelled

Unfortunately The Exploited tour in Aust-NZ is cancelled due to a very serious family situation of the bass player. Rob has travelled today back to Ireland to stay with his family for the next few weeks and therefore The Exploited is not able to make tour. The band is feeling really sorry, not only for Robs situation, but also this tour cancellation and the disappointment for the fans. 

"I'm really sorry to have to say this but I'm afraid we'll have to cancel. Apart from feeling sorry for Rob, we're all totally gutted as we were really looking forward to this, but it is out of our control. I don't really know what else to say except for I'm sorry to have to be saying this in every aspect. We'd just like to apologise to the promoter and everyone involved in these gigs and especially all of the people who were coming to see us. There’s no one more disappointed than us!!!  So hopefully in the future we can get a chance to come back and play to the people of Australia and New Zealand. " 
- Wattie / The Exploited

Barbe-Q-Barbies to play three dates in London in May

"Probably the best all-girl rock band ever!" - BAM MARGERA

The BARBE-Q-BARBIES are exactly what the world needs right now. In a sea of auto-tuned hard rock clones and sunset strip wannabes this Finnish all-girl band is here to set the record straight. Rock is, was, and always will be raw, dirty, and bad to the bone.

Current album "ALL OVER YOU" is full of licks and hits harking back to the glory years of AC/DC, QOTSA, KISS, and MOTÖRHEAD but with an added fuel injection of Helsinki attitude and femme fatale vocals that’s gonna blow your mind. With this the BARBIES have simultaneously created their own style and revitalized the genre.

"Loud. Proud. Dirty rock. I'm in heaven!" - JUSSI 69, THE 69 EYES

Live these girls really come into their own. Headline shows up and down country and opening slots for NEW YORK DOLLS, and WASP (to name just a few) have earned them the title of 'Finland's 2nd BEST NEWCOMER ACT 2011' (public poll by Soundi, the biggest rock magazine in Finland) and their shows have earned a reputation as energetic, unpredictable, and uncompromising but always fun and entertaining. For the BARBE-Q-BARBIES the party doesn't stop. They live and breath rock, punk, sleaze and trash.

After having played some incredible festivals and every whisky soaked club in their home country, it’s now time for them to break out. Their debut album “All Over You” (originally released in Finland in October 2010) is going to be released in the UK and the rest of Europe in June 2012. So girls, lock up your boyfriends, and guys better wear a guard cuz the BARBE-Q-BARBIES are coming to kick the world in the nuts!
