There has been a re shuffle of the Voodoo Six pack, the band has parted ways with Henry. This may be of disappointment to many fans but in order for Voodoo Six to move forward change was necessary. We all wish Henry the very best for the future, he is a talented guy and sure he will find the music which will inspire him to carry on with a new project. We also thank him for his past contribution to the band.Voodoo Six now has a new member, Luke Purdie. Luke has a rich bluesy voice and is a great songwriter too, he slotted into the band perfectly. Former bands include Reculver and his own solo acoustic project.We are working on getting the new album finished, it’s sounding amazing. We have been rehearsing the new songs and you will be pleased to hear that V6 is firing on all cylinders!
Our schedule is to finish recording and Mike Fraser will mix the album at the end of August. We know this is later than everyone expected but with Luke some songs needed to be re-arranged and we want to make sure this album is something very special. Sorry to keep you all waiting but we can assure you it will be worth the wait.
In the meantime we may drop in the odd one off show so keep checking the website if you want to hear the new songs live prior to release.Thanks for keeping the faith, we all appreciate your support greatly. We hope to see you all very soon.

“Motörizer”, the new album from MOTÖRHEAD, sold a little more than 6,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 82 on The Billboard 200 chart. The follow-up to 2006’s “Kiss of Death” was recorded in part (drums only) at FOO FIGHTERS frontman/ex-NIRVANA drummer Dave Grohl‘s Studio 606 in Northridge, California with producer Cameron Webb, who also worked on “Kiss of Death” and 2004’s “Inferno”.
Whatever happened to rock’s royalty? …they are back with a vengeance!
Bands of the 70s and 80s became part of a lifestyle, adding to the defining moments of youth, a soundtrack to our memories, and are still held close in the hearts of fans.
Now, from the ashes of some of Canada’s most loved and influential rocks acts of the 80s – Moxy, Santers, Killer Dwarfs and Lee Aaron – comes Hard Road, Canada’s supergroup. Capitalizing on the signature styles and diverse background of each of its members, Hard Road combines the eclectic and ripping guitar riffs of Earl Johnson of Moxy, the unmistakable vocal prowess and stage antics of Russ Graham of Killer Dwarfs, the driving backbone of Santer’s bassist Rick Lazaroff and the powerhouse drumming of Morgan Evans.
Cyclone Records’ Brad Trew says “music has evolved since the early days of these icons, shaping and molding a new, fresh sound and approach. Consider that Killer Dwarfs’ last studio album was 16 years ago, Santers’ last release was 23 years ago and Moxy’s was 31 years ago! As a fan myself, I believe other fans will be more than satisfied to hear their idols back with a vengeance and an enthusiasm that rivals their earlier works.”
Each member has spent decades devoted to their love of music and have each followed their own hard roads to reach this point in their careers. Having been rehearsing and writing material since its inception in April 2008, Hard Road is currently recording new, unreleased material as well as performing reworks of hits from their past. Watch for a new album coming in 2009!
The line up consists of:
Russ Graham (Killer Dwarfs, Moxy): Lead Vocals, Guitar
Earl Johnson (Moxy, King Biscuit Boy): Guitar, Vocals
Rick Lazaroff (Santers): Bass
Morgan Evans (Lee Aaron, Julliet, Killer B): Drums

What do Judas Priest, Kiss, Motorhead, AC/DC, & Hanoi Rocks have in common? Yes they are all some of the biggest bands in the world, but besides the obvious they are also all influences for L.A.’s Cockpit and boy did these ladies learn their lessons from the best, taking a piece from each band and putting it all together to make their own brand of in your face rock n’ roll.
Yes I said ladies, this four piece is made up of Linda Lou (vocals & guitar), Terrii Kiing (bass), Alicia Blu (guitar), and Rachel Rine (drums) and they are turning heads in more ways than one. But I can almost bet if you called them a girl band one of them would punch you in the face and keep on walking.
Cockpit came together at the end of 2003 and built their reputation and support from their raucous live shows, that eventually landed the band opening slots for a number of nationally known acts, along with a slot at Rocklahoma 2008 and a spot onstage for all four days of the inaugural Bayou Festival in Houston.
On their debut 5 track e.p. appropriately titled “Mission To Rock” Cockpit is taking no prisoners with such tracks as “Guns For Hire”, “White Flag”, “At A Loose End”. There are no sappy power ballads, no Richard Marx penned tunes but there are plenty of loud smoking guitars, powerhouse drums, and dirty, filthy bass lines not to mention Linda Lou’s arena ready vocals.
You can also check out Cockpit’s video, “Gun For Hire” at this link.
Swedish metal band, Lion’s Share has released a new video in support of their album, “Dark Hours”.

solo album is just about ready to go.‘s next album might be “on the bench, in pieces,” waiting for the group to resume recording after it finishes touring in mid-September, but guitarist Joe Perry’s next
Perry tells Billboard.com that he’s finishing mixing the follow-up to 2005’s Grammy-nominated “.” He plans to release a single in late July or early August, and the album will come out in the fall.
The one thing Perry doesn’t have yet is a title; for that he’s holding a contest via Twitter, asking fans for suggestions. If he chooses a fan’s idea, the winner will receive a guitar.
“It’s tough, obviously, without having heard the record for people to name it,” he notes, “but we may find something really good. There’ve already been a bunch that are possibilities.”
Perry says the set is a departure from his previous solo outing. “The last one was a straight-ahead rocker. This one’s got some different things on it.”
The album was recorded in about seven weeks at Perry’s home studio,The Boneyard; he shares lead vocal duties with a German singer who his wife, Billie, discovered on the Internet, and there’s one instrumental track. David Hull from the Joe Perry Project and Ben Tileston, who plays with two of Perry’s sons in , were also involved.
“We were working around the clock, through weekends and everything, and it was all live,” Perry says. “In fact, a lot of the vocals are live along with the rest of the band. (Sound) was bleeding from one track to another; if somebody had a bad take everybody had a bad take, and we played it ’til we got a good one. Of course we went in and overdubbed a lot of the other stuff, but the energy is there. You can feel it.”
Once the album is released, Perry hopes to hit the road with his own band for “a short, fast, hard tour. That’s what I’m really looking forward to … getting back out there with some old friends and some other musicians and doing it like the old days.”
The Aerosmith album, its first since 2004’s “Honkin’ on Bobo,” will also be a consideration at that point as the group — which wraps its current tour with ZZ Top on September 16 — hits the studio again with producer Brendan O’Brien.
“That is the next project right after we get off the road,” Perry says. “We’ll take a little break and then put it together. I’m hoping it will come together pretty fast, but I’ve been saying that for five years.”
