The band that features Phil Collen, Simon Laffy, and Sex Pistol drummer Paul Cook issued the following update on their myspace page today:
We’re sure that you’ve heard the rumors over recent weeks and we are now finally able to confirm that our debut album, ’Surreal’, is set to be released in the US on June 3rd on VH1 Classics. We are excited to bring our music to our fans in the US and can’t wait to blast it for everyone live. Also, we recently filmed a ’secret’ gig in Los Angeles that is to be broadcast on VH1 at the time of the album release. Photos from the gig can be found in the media section on our website at http://www.manraze.com.
We thank all of you for your support while we were recording the album and now look forward to bringing it to you – after all, that’s what counts, isn’t it!! Stay tuned here for more album and tour news coming soon! Bring on the amps– it’s time to rock!
See ya soon,
Simon, Phil & Paul

Formula One Records is proud and happy to announce that ‘Global Warning’, Burn’s universally acclaimed comeback release, is now on sale around the world.

The UK melodic rockers have been added to the Rock Of Ages Festival in Birmingham, England on September 6th and will also be appearing at the Firefest V event at Rock City in Nottingham, England on October 26th.
The band will also be featuring in a special edition of Chris Nelson’s Hairspray Heaven Show on www. rock247online. co. uk on Saturday May 10. Chris chose the track ‘Pray For Rain’, from ‘Global Warning’, as his favourite song of 2007.
Burn emerged from the shadow of the tragic death of original drummer, Karl Bee, and the departure of guitarist Rab Devenney in 2007 with a new line-up and ‘Global Warning’, a storming album which has received tremendous reviews from around the world.
The band, Jeff Ogden, Barney Stackhouse, Marc Stackhouse, Benjy Reid, Julian Nicholas and Phil Hammond will begin work on their fourth album later this year, with release planned for 2009.
For Danielia Cotton, What You See Isn’t Necessarily What You Get The Singer’s “Testify” Leaves No Reasonable Doubt: She’s a Rock Star The adage has endured for decades: “Never judge a book by its cover.” In the case of Danielia Cotton, it couldn’t be truer. Her sophomore album ‘Rare Child’ (May 20th, Adrenaline Records/ADA) is the only evidence a listener needs. Danielia may be lovely and petite, but it’s undeniable that her music’s effortless range from gritty “down home” blues to soaring rock stature shouldn’t be ignored. She plays grab-you-by-the-soul music with emotional intensity. When fans and supporters entered a recent sold-out show at New York’s Cutting Room, they were immersed in a spine-tingling performance from a woman whose voice surpasses extraordinary. Audience members were left in awe, whether she was singing hymns with her family or rocking out on guitar with her band. Now she’s making moves on a promo tour throughout the country to support a surge of well-earned radio airplay — “Testify” is currently one of the top songs being added to AAA radio stations nationwide, according to FMQB. Danielia breathes fire into ten rock and soul gems on her album ‘Rare Child,’ which follows her critically acclaimed 2005 ‘Small White Town’ release. All Music Guide called her “a fiery blues-rock artist,” while the Philadelphia Daily News compared her singing to the “emotional power of Janis Joplin… Danielia’s music has the swagger of Let It Bleed-era Rolling Stones.” Listen to Danielia’s “Testify” Here!

The United Kingdom has never been short on hard rock talent. The new wave of hard rock bands coming out of Europe, and in the case of Wired Desire, from Scotland, gives me high hopes for the future of rock. One band that is making a lot of noise as of late is the five piece group, Wired Desire. This amazing quintet has the hard edge of AC/DC, the swagger of Guns ‘N Roses, and a great sound that should help pave their path to success.
The band has youth on their side (the average age of WIred Desire’s five members are 21) and are showing a ton of promise with their new EP, Barely Illegal.
This EP has four killer cuts of high energy rock and roll. Music this good can only translate well live. My only complaint after hearing this record, is that I want to hear more. Four songs is not enough, when the tunes are this good.
Daly has a great rock voice. He has that rough edge style that I love to hear. The guitar tandem of Jam and Eddy are already making names for themselves in their young career.
The record labels (what is left of them) ought to be lining up to sign these guys, and get it done quickly.
You can preview all of the band’s tunes at their website, as well as purchase a copy of Barely Illegal. Once you hear these tunes, you will certainly want to own a copy. Don’t miss this!
