NEWS: Sarea set to release new album ‘This Is Not Goodbye’

Sarea 2014

Formed back in 2008, Swedish band Sarea has been described as “a melodic punch in the face”. ‘Alive’, Sarea’s debut album, was released in October 2010 – a pacey album full of energy.

As reported back in December 2012, when the band toured the UK, I saw them play two dates – the B2 Norwich and The Dirty South in London – where they proved themselves as highly competent musicians, quickly winning over the audiences.

Sarea are now set to release their follow up album ‘This Is Not Goodbye’ on October 10th.

‘Downfall’ is the first single to be taken from the new album and it features a brand new music video.

If you’re a fan of melodic yet aggressive metal, in the same vein as In Flames, Killswitch Engage, Soilwork, Bring Me The Horizon etc., then this new album from Sarea is well worth checking out.

It’s safe to say that ‘This Is Not Goodbye’ really takes them to the next level.

INTERVIEW: Reagan Browne returns to England for a mini tour in October. We caught up for a chat.

‘Gypsy Woman’s Got The Groove’ is the new single from Texas born Reagan Browne. We played the song on the show last week and it produced one of the most positive reactions to a new song we’ve seen in a while. Not only does it feature Reagan in top vocal form, the feel-good hooks lead into polished solo work from guest guitarist Eric Johnson.

Reagan Browne returns to England in October for a short run of dates:

 

October 16th at The Roadhouse, Birmingham
October 17th at The Carlisle, Hastings (Free entry)
October 18th at Leo’s Red Lion, Gravesend
October 19th at Fiddler’s Elbow, Camden Town, London

Always up for a bit of banter, we caught up with Reagan to talk about working with Eric Johnson, Phil X, Billy Sheehan and Marty Friedman. We also discussed the back story to the new single, as well as the touring band members, but we began by first talking about the sweltering heat LA residents have been experiencing recently.

INTERVIEW: Joanne Shaw Taylor speaks ‘The Dirty Truth’

In May 2014, Joanne Shaw Taylor reunited with her ‘White Sugar’ album producer Jim Gaines, and recorded a new studio album in Memphis.  “The Dirty Truth” is a return to Joanne’s original sound that mixes rock riffs with blues influences. The album is released in the UK today, Monday 22nd September, on Joanne’s boutique label Axehouse Music.

“I wanted to go back into the studio in Memphis with Jim to retain the same vibe that we captured on the first album,” says Joanne. “The new album is a combination of rock and blues. It’s an exciting collaboration, and hopefully my fans will love the more stripped down sound.”

We spoke to Joanne on the anniversary of the passing of Jimi Hendrix. Before we began our chat about ‘The Dirty Truth’ and her upcoming UK tour, we asked Joanne for her thoughts on the day we celebrate Jimi’s life and works.

Here’s our interview with Delain’s Charlotte Wessels ahead of their tour of North America and UK

Busily packing for Delain’s next foray into North America, Charlotte Wessels took time out to chat with The Classic Rock Show about ‘The Human Contradiction’ album, released earlier this year.

Delain are on the eve of celebrating Charlotte’s tenth year with the group – something which is not lost on Charlotte and she makes comment on in the interview – and since signing with Napalm Records they have been able to make and stand by their own decisions. The independence that they have been offered by the label has reaped rewards as ‘The Human Contradiction’ is their most rounded and polished album to date; the songwriting and musicianship is there for all to see and hear.

Charlotte also shared her thoughts on this freedom that Delain now have over their songwriting, as well as her feelings towards the work that the Sophie Lancaster Foundation continue to do in raising awareness of prejudice and intolerance.

This, together with hearing how much Delain are looking forward to returning to North America and later to the UK in November, makes for an interesting interview with one of the most recognised voices in rock, let alone the genre of Symphonic Metal.
