John Garcia to release his solo album!

John Garcia is set to release his solo album John Garcia on August 4th in the UK on Napalm Records!  John recently completed work on the first video from the album for the song “My Mind” and The Classic Rock Show will be discussing all this and much more with John very soon.

With ‘Vista Chino’, Garcia makes music very close to his ‘Kyuss’ roots, but on his self-titled solo album he also ventures out with some experiments and convinces all along the line. This record is full of first-class, catchy rock numbers that commute equally between Classic Rock and concise Stoner elements.

Once you’ve made contact and started ingesting the tracks ‘My Mind’ or ‘5000 Miles’, you will see this album is spreading like an infection to the body and one is happy to be involved in the short and crisp ‘Saddleback’ or  ‘Confusion’, which is strongly rooted in Blues. ‘Her Bullets Energy’ is the next ultra-bouncer on the record, with the legendary Robby Krieger (The Doors) on the guitar. John Garcia has delivered a multi-faceted and extremely intense solo album that will stir up more dust than a sandstorm in the California desert. Danko Jones, Tom Brayton, Mark Diamond and also Garcia’s old cohort of Kyuss, Nick Oliveri show up as guest musicians to round out this solo masterpiece.

A preview clip of the entire album can be viewed below.

‘John Garcia’ is available on CD, Vinyl and Digitally on Napalm Records on August 4, 2014 – pre-order here.

Keep an eye out for the interview with John.

Massive cd competition

Win a copy of ‘Full Throttle’ on CD in our Massive competition

With thanks to the guys in the band Massive and our friends at Earache Records, we’re giving you a chance to win a CD of Massive’s debut album ‘Full Throttle’ which has been revamped with four new recordings and is out July 21st.

massive‘Full Throttle’ is a breakneck all killer, no filler record which is brimming with attitude. Tracks like “One By One” fuse aggressive and anthemic choruses with fun-filled solos whilst the bass-heavy, testosterone-soaked “Dancefloor” is more sweaty circle pit than glitzy ballroom. The menace and grit of the band comes out in tracks like “Big Trend Setter”, which is an egotistical explosion of pure rock ‘n’ roll arrogance. “Now or Never” is a white-knuckle joyride with enough G-force to make your head spin, and the middle-finger-to-the-man numbers like “Hollywood” will whip up any crowd into an anarchic frenzy.

Musically, the band keep it simple and direct, with high-energy tunes set around infectious, rabble-rousing choruses that bring out the rabid rock ‘n’ rollers in the most sterile of crowds.

Massive have already been featured on the front of Classic Rock Magazine and they recently stepped into the studio to record 4 more songs to add to “Full Throttle”, including two new tunes and covers of AC/DC’s “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)” and Aerosmith’s “Rats in the Cellar”.

The band have also confirmed their first visit to Europe, beginning with a slot at the Hard Rock Hell festival in November. We’ve also heard that Massive will be looking to play a few additional gigs around the UK while they’re over.

Enter the competition by answering a simple question about Massive’s new album and if you’re correct, you could be in with a chance of winning a copy of ‘Full Throttle’!

Only entries submitted through this form will be accepted:-

The competition will close on Thursday, July 17th, 9pm (UK time): The lucky winner will be announced shortly after the competition closes, live ‘on-air’, during next week’s show. Sorry, but this competition is open to UK residents only.

Good luck!

Fist swinging, riot-starting, girlfriend-stealing, punch-in-the-face rock n’ roll! Big up the Aussie Massive

MassiveFullThrottleHi-octane rockers Massive stake their claim for greatness with their debut album “Full Throttle”.

Displaying a work ethic worthy of any of their Aussie compatriots, Massive think nothing of regularly traveling a thousand miles across Australia for a single show, and often return home battered and bruised. Their war stories are littered with live shows abruptly pulled by frightened security, or venues cutting the power mid-set. A self-funded trip to tour the West Coast of America involved avoiding arrest for bringing back most of the crowd from one of the shows to their hotel for an after-hours party.

“Full Throttle” is a breakneck all killer, no filler record which is brimming with attitude. Tracks like “One By One” fuse aggressive and anthemic choruses with fun-filled solos whilst the bass-heavy, testosterone-soaked “Dancefloor” is more sweaty circle pit than glitzy ballroom. The menace and grit of the band comes out in tracks like “Big Trend Setter”, which is an egotistical explosion of pure rock ‘n’ roll arrogance. “Now or Never” is a white-knuckle joyride with enough G-force to make your head spin, and the middle-finger-to-the-man numbers like “Hollywood” will whip up any crowd into an anarchic frenzy.

Musically, the band keep it simple and direct, with high-energy tunes set around infectious, rabble-rousing choruses that bring out the rabid rock ‘n’ rollers in the most sterile of crowds.

Massive have already been featured on the front of Classic Rock Magazine and they recently stepped into the studio to record 4 more songs to add to “Full Throttle”, including two new tunes and covers of AC/DC’s “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)” and Aerosmith’s “Rats in the Cellar”.

The band have also confirmed their first visit to Europe, beginning with a slot at the Hard Rock Hell festival in November.

Massive are, Brad Marr – Vocals/Guitar, Ben Laguda – Vocals/Lead Guitar, Aidan McGarrigle – Backing Vocals/Bass Guitar and Jarrod Medwin – Backing Vocals/Drums.

“Full Throttle” is released on Earache Records on July 21st.

sister-disguisedvultures

Skid Row are joined by Sister on their UK Tour

Sweden’s SISTER have announced they will join Skid Row on an extensive UK run that kicks off in Bristol on October 17th, 2014. Making up the bill will be The Last Vegas.

Rikki Riot comments: “Skid Row has been a great influence to the members in Sister since the start of their own musical career and before that. It will be a great experience to share the stage on the UK tour in October. We will do our part to make this a memorable tour for a long time to come!”

They have also confirmed an appearance at the ‘Peace and Love’ festival in Borlänge, Sweden on July 5th.

Sister recently launched a brand new music video for one of the most vitriol-filled cuts from their latest album, ‘Disguised Vultures’. “Slay Yourself” was filmed at venues in Sweden and Finland and captures the sweaty and raw energy unleashed on the club stages on that tour.

Watch the video here:


“Disguised Vultures” emphasises what the band is all about: heavy, raw sound and attitude. Fans will find plenty more of what Revolver Magazine described as “a genre-bending amalgam of street punk attitude and glam-inspired melodies” on this new album.
