We’re doing something that’s never been done before – using the internet to let our fans actually sing with us on our new version of “The Right To Rock!”
“The Right To Rock: 25th Anniversary Edition” will be released on January 20th, 2010, exactly 25 years to the day since it originally hit the streets, and we’ve recorded a brand new version of the title track for inclusion in this historic release – and we want to give KEELaholics everywhere the opportunity to put your voices on it.
All you have to do is send us an MP3 of you singing the title chorus line, “The Right To Rock,” and we’ll compile the best of what we receive and insert them into our brand new version of this song.
It’s easy – if you have a microphone for your computer and some simple recording software, download the reference mix on our MySpace profile which has a space for you to sing in. Try to sing in tune and in time, or just scream your guts out like we do!
There are a lot of free programs available that are easy to use – we suggest the Beta version of Audacity which is available at http://audacity.soundforge.net
Some of you may have more sophisticated recording gear at home, and that’s fine – just get to work and send us your best “Right To Rock” and we’ll put it on the new album. Send MP3’s to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1st. By sending your MP3 you are agreeing to allow KEEL to use your voice on this recording.
What are you waiting for – get ready to belt it out and shout out your Right To Rock!

Fresh off the heels of a run as main support for The Killers, Wolfmother have announced their first North American headlining tour in over 2 years! Before saying goodbye to The Killers on the road, Wolfmother front man Andrew Stockdale joined Brandon Flowers and company on stage for a special cover of The Animals’ “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.” The guitar driven rendition of the classic track marked one of the tour’s many highlights and was captured on video by a fan.
Amidst all the highlights on tour Wolfmother was able to sneak into New York to debut some of the songs from their forthcoming album Cosmic Egg at a secret show that Rolling Stone described as, “a ferocious set of riotous-riffing and prog-rock ecstasy.”
Wolfmother’s cross-country trek will be kicking-off at the House of Blues in Dallas, TX on the 29th of October and wrapping up 20 cities later at the legendary Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles (see full list of tour dates below). Support for all shows will come from thenewno2 and Heartless Bastards.
Limited pre-sale begins September 16th through Musictoday. Exclusive pre-sale offers include a trial membership to The Wolfies, Wolfmother’s official fan club, and opportunities to pre-order Cosmic Egg with your tickets, plus one lucky fan and a guest at each show will win a meet and greet with Wolfmother! General on sales for all shows begin Friday, September 18th.
In a first for the band, Wolfmother has partnered with Musictoday & Trees for the Future, planting one tree in a third world country for every pre-sale ticket sold. Says Andrew Stockdale, �This is something I’ve wanted to do for some time, it’s great to have the opportunity to contribute to the preservation of our environment.�
October 27th celebrates the release of the aforementioned Cosmic Egg, recorded with heralded UK producer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, nine inch nails) and follow-up to the band’s 2006 self-titled debut, which included “Woman,” the 2007 Grammy winner for Best Hard Rock Performance. “New Moon Rising” the first single off the record, is already #36 on the iTunes charts and climbing.
Stockdale also recently recorded as part of Beck’s Record Club. Stockdale joins the company of artists hand-picked by Beck such as MGMT, Devandra Banhart and Little Joy member Bikini to reinterpret choices from Songs of Leonard Cohen. Each track will be released individually exclusively on Beck.com.

Guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal will be the special guest on this week’s edition of Hard Rock Nights (September 11-17), the nationally syndicated hard rock radio program. Thal is best known for his work with Guns N’ Roses on the ‘Chinese Democracy’ album and as the current touring guitarist with Lita Ford, as well as his prolific solo career.
Thal will open up to JT about his favorite songs on the ‘Chinese Democracy’ record, the best songs to play in concert with Lita, and give his fans a little teaser about “another band” he is in that is preparing to record new music.
Hard Rock Nights can be heard each week on over a dozen radio stations (see list at http://hardrocknights.wordpress.com/affiliates).
“Money Never Sleeps” is the debut of the five man Swedish band Covered Call. Formed in 2006 by drummer Ronny Svanströmer and guitarist Joel Carlsson, who recruited bassist Thomas Thulin and second guitarist Morgan Rosenquist before finding Ex Candlemass and Therion vocalist Thomas Wikström to complete the lineup. At first listen “Money Never Sleeps” does not have any stand out tracks, but after a couple of listens you will find an album that is solid from beginning to end where the melody and hooks grab you and each song builds momentum for the next song.
“All Because of Me” is the first track on “Money Never Sleeps”. It’s a mid tempo rocker that is usually found as the third or fourth track on most albums, but is a good song nonetheless with a nice solo and some sing along verses. “Til The End” is a great rocker balls out from the beginning again Carlsson has a nice solo, but Thomas Thulin’s bass sounds awesome on this track. “Shine” is a song that caught me completely off guard as it is a cover of one my favorite songs by Mr. Big from their “Actual Size” album. While Wikström is no Eric Martin, he and the band still do this song justice giving it a heavier sound but still as melodic as the original version. “Never Again” is where “Money Never Sleeps” grabbed my attention and takes off great heavy melodic song that should get the band some radio spins. It probably wont get played in the United States because U.S. radio doesn’t play songs this good. It will definitely receive airplay in Europe.
“Anything You Want” is a piano ballad with some beautiful playing throughout. “I Wanna Be Free” is a hard rocking anthem built for the live show with a great intro by Carlsson and once again some great bass lines from Thulin. “Nothin’ At All” is another great sing along foot tapping melodic rocker. Carlsson and Rosenquist’s playing really shines on this song as does Wikström’s vocals. The title track “Money Never Sleeps” is another anthem with some great background vocals and the song is just plain fun, a great song for the summer to blast on a road trip.
Looks or listens can be deceiving on “Money Never Sleeps” at first listen. But Covered Call have one of the best kinds of albums the kind that grow on you with each listen and hook you with some great songs and great playing. Definitely makes me look forward to their next album.
