Unwritten Law To Film Hollywood, CA Show For Upcoming DVD Release
Band’s Upcoming Sixth Studio Album Due For Release
In Late 2008 Through Suburban Noize
Southern California Rock Outfit Has Battled Countless Record Labels, Survived Bomb Attacks And Violent Altercations With Band Members To Produce Five Studio Albums, Five Top Twenty Singles And Tours With Sum 41, Hawthorne Heights and Punk Legends The Sex Pistols
Southern California rockers Unwritten Law will be filming their upcoming March 7th, 2008 performance at the Key Club in Hollywood, CA for an upcoming live DVD release later this year through Suburban Noize Records.
“2008 is looking to be an exciting new year for us boys in Unwritten Law. We look forward to playing and filming our first show of the New Year for our incredibly good looking and devout fans,” says Unwritten Law bassist PK. “This will be our first performance DVD since the ‘Music in High Places” video. What will make this DVD so great is that it will be our first performance DVD the way we play best; with our guitars plugged into our amps and cranked to as loud as they can go! We look forward to rockin’ your brains out March 7th at the Key Club, so remember to make yourselves pretty for the shoot and we’ll see you dirtbags there.”
Emerging from Southern California’s skate/snowboard punk scene in the early 1990s, Unwritten Law has been crafting some of the most infectious pop-punk for over a decade. After releasing series of independent releases that saw them crisscrossing the country with everyone from Sum 41, Hawthorne Heights and opening for punk legends the Sex Pistols, Unwritten Law garnered the mainstream attention they so richly deserved with the release of their fourth album “Elva”, which sold in excess of 400,000 copies. The album produced the top Modern Rock singles “Up All Night”, “Rest of My Life” and the #1 Top 20 single “Seein Red”. 2003 saw the group strip down for the acoustic live record “Music in High Places”, while the group’s 2005 release “Here’s to The Morning” debuted on the Billboard Charts Top 200 at #51.
Unwritten Law has consistently triumphed over adversity and found strength within their music. The group has released five albums on five different record labels and has sold over a million units. The group’s success continues to grow and thrive, despite a record business that continues to spiral downward. Meanwhile the group’s out of control antics have continuously kept the group’s name in press headlines.
In late 2007 the group officially signed with Suburban Noize Records for the release of their currently untitled sixth studio album. The group’s upcoming Suburban Noize debut will see release through the label in late 2008.
“This will be our first release on yet another new label for us, but with a label with whom we have had a long standing history with, the mighty Suburban Noize,” says an excited PK. “We are proud and stoked to have come full circle and to join the Suburban Noize family and look forward to an exciting year.”

A Nervous Wreck opened for The Bulletboys last Thursday night. I have seen this band a few times, in the past. Either my Samuel Adams was distorting my perception, or they were much better than the last time I seen them play live. They had a tight set that included covers of Motley Crue, L.A. Guns, Poison songs and a few of their own original tunes.
The Bulletboys returned to Cincinnati, Ohio’s The Blue Note for the first time in many years. It has been 12 years since I have seen the band perform. Marq Torien is the only original member of the band. I knew this going into the show, so I didn’t expect a whole lot, but I have been a fan of this group for a while, so I came to check out the concert anyway.
The band arrived a little late, as they just drove in from Yonkers, NY, but they were still able to put on a solid show. Marq may be the last original member of the Bulletboys, but he proves to be the most important one. Torien’s voice hasn’t changed one bit since the band’s debut CD from 1989. The band backing him up was very good, and Torien also proved to have some pretty good skills on the six string as well.
The band played a short but tight set that included, Talk To Your Daughter, THC Groove, Rock Candy, For the Love of Money, Hard as a Rock, Hell on My Heels, Kissin’ Kitty, Hang on St. Christopher and the mandatory Smooth Up In Ya.
Torien mentioned during the show, that they will be on the road later this year with…….The Foo Fighters.
I enjoyed this show, and will certainly catch them again this summer when they go back on tour. I got the chance to talk to Marq and the rest of the band, after the show. They seem pretty excited about their new CD coming out this year, and their up and coming tour this summer.
There are a few dates remaining on this short club tour. Don’t miss them when they head your way!
I hope you enjoy the videos below!

Canadian blind rocker Jeff Healey, who uniquely played his guitar flat on his lap, has died of cancer on the eve of his latest album release, his publicist said in a statement.
Healey, 41, died in a Toronto hospital of a rare cancer, retino blastoma, that he had fought since birth and which claimed his eyesight at the age of one.
“Visually, Jeff was an intriguing player to watch, because he played guitar — by any conventional standard — all wrong, with it flat across his lap,” his publicist Richard Flohil told broadcaster CTV Sunday. “But he was a remarkable, a virtuoso player.”
The Jeff Healey Band’s 1988 Grammy-nominated album “See the Light,” which included the hit “Angle Eyes,” sold more than one million copies in the United States.
He played with blues legends B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughn, and recorded with George Harrison, Mark Knopfler, and the late Jimmy Rogers.
At the time of his death, he was about to release his first rock-blues album in eight years, “Mess of Blues.” The CD will be released in March and April in North America and Europe, respectively.
Last year, Healey had surgery to remove the cancer from his legs, and later from both lungs. He also underwent radiation treatment and chemotherapy.
