Greybeards have announced details of their highly anticipated sophomore album. Titled ‘For The Wilder Minds‘, the Swedish rock band have delivered on the promise of their debut and crafted a music collection brimming with killer atmospheric rock songs, with an alternative vibe and steroid infused pop licks.

Lead single ‘Fast Asleep‘ sets the tone for Greybeards new album; melodic hooks with deep grooves, powerful musicianship and vocals, thought provoking lyrics and a chorus that will stick in your head for weeks to come. The same can be said for all the tracks, with ‘Peace Of Mind‘, ‘One In A Billion‘, and ‘Cold December‘ particularly showcasing the talent of this young four piece rock band from Gävle, Sweden.

Following the release of ‘For The Wilder Minds‘, Greybeards are special guests to Bonafide on their UK Tour this May.

We’re really excited to release our second album! There’s great new songs for our fans to enjoy and new memories to be made, and to join Bonafide on their UK tour this May is unbelievable. What an amazing way to celebrate the release of ‘For The Wilder Minds’… we can’t wait!“, says Greybeards.

For The Wilder Minds‘ was recorded at Studio Sound Society and Sound Control Swede, in Gaevle, Sweden, and was produced by Chips Kiesby (The Hellacopters, Crucified Barbara, Bonafide) and co-produced by Regina Wallmark. The strings on ‘Peace of Mind’ was recorded at and produced by Maria Grönlund at Studio Strings.


  1. Fast Asleep
  2. One in a Billion

  4. Insane
  5. Beautiful Things
  6. Free
  7. You Struck Me
  8. Cold December
  9. Peace Of Mind
  10. The Nerve

The album kicks off with a thought about the state of our digitalised world. We live through our alter-egos online, even though we are born as thriving individuals, but seemingly dedicate our lives to create an idea of what we could be…“, says the band.

Greybeards new album ‘For The Wilder Minds‘ is out 4th May 2018 via Attitude Recordings.

Robin Trower To Play Only UK Show On 27 Feb

After releasing perhaps his best solo album since his 40s – ‘Time and Emotion‘ – last year, Robin Trower will play an exclusive UK concert at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on Tuesday 27th February.

The 72 year-old will be supported by the New York based blues vocalist Sari Schorr Trio featuring guitarist Ash Wilson and keyboardist Bob Fridzema (former King King).

Tickets for Robin Trower’s only UK show can be booked from the 24 HR Box Office: 08444 780 898 or booked from or the venue website –

Says Robin Trower about ‘Time and Emotion, I can honestly say I don’t know when I have been happier with an album. I feel Time and Emotion contains some of my very best work.

Trower’s smooth-as-butter guitar licks, screaming solos and ethereal bluesy vocals keep the listener hooked.  Robin has a vibe, a voice and a presence on his instrument that transcends time and space.  He plays from the soul and he is as intoxicated from the music he creates as his listeners.
If you love electric guitar then you will love this album.   It is sly, sleek and soothing at times and rocking and rolling other times.  This guy can play. It really is that simple.

Dennis DeYoung 40th Anniversary Tour Announcement

Dennis DeYoung announces a special live tour celebrating the 40th Anniversary of STYX‘s iconic 1977 album release, ‘The Grand Illusion‘. DeYoung will reflect back on more than 4 decades of musical excellence throughout the performance. This includes performing the entire Grand Illusion album plus all the greatest hits written and sung by DeYoung including – ‘Come Sail Away’, ‘Babe’, ‘Mr. Roboto’, ‘The Best Of Times’ and ‘Lady’. Other hit songs attendees may expect include fan favorites ‘Renegade’,’Blue Collar Man’, ‘Suite Madame Blue’ and more.

The excitement of the Grand Illusion 40th Anniversary Tour is the magic of DeYoung‘s instantly recognizable voice bringing the classic STYX catalog to the live stage. For fans that weren’t witness to the original album tour, DeYoung shares, “The Grand Illusion album was STYX’s greatest achievement, and this year my band and I will bring its sound and spirit to life nightly on concert stages across America.

The Grand Illusion‘ was STYX‘s seventh studio album, but historically serves as the album that would launch the band to super stardom with DeYoung‘s song ‘Come Sail Away‘ reaching number 8 on Billboard‘s Top 100 in 1977. The song pushed album sales to more than 3 million copies and gave STYX a multi-platinum album certification bringing STYX critical commercial success. The album remains a staple on classic rock radio stations worldwide.

Of the ‘Grand Illusion‘ album, DeYoung adds “I formulated the theme behind the Grand Illusion album after observing how American culture creates illusions through advertising and entertainment to convince us that our lives our lacking, in order to sell products. I told the audience that we were part of the Illusion and warned them not to be “fooled by the radio,” which was us, and that in the end, despite the illusions and hype created, that “deep inside we’re all the same.”

2018 offers opportunities for fans to see Dennis DeYoung and his band at a hometown venue. New dates are being added and ticket sales are available through DeYoung‘s official website. For a detailed list of venues and performance dates, visit

Tomorrow Is Lost Announce New Single ‘We Are The Lost’

Newcastle hot-rockers Tomorrow Is Lost had a fantastic 2017, the first year in the bands’ life and if their trajectory continues on the same path, this 5-piece will be storming the UK rock scene, taking no prisoners.

New music is right around the corner, with the release of a brand new single called ‘We Are The Lost‘ hitting stores and streaming services everywhere on Friday, 23rd February.  The second official single from Tomorrow Is Lost solidifies their intent, unashamedly declaring that ‘rock’s not dead’. Accompanying the single release is a rerecorded version of their cover of Sia’s Elastic Heart, another fan favourite from 2017.

Here’s what vocalist Cass King has to say about the new single:

“After giving fans just a glimmer of what was to come with our debut single ‘Insane’ – ‘We Are The Lost’ is a high octane, riff-laden anthem set to pull you into the very depths of our shadowy world.  This song is so much fun to play, in its original format it had crowds bouncing, now that it is complete we cannot wait for you all to hear it!”

Following the hugely successful first year in the bands’ life, Tomorrow Is Lost are intent on getting in front of as many audiences as possible throughout 2018. Barely pausing to catch their proverbial breath, they are on the road relentlessly throughout February & March so make sure you take the opportunity to see the band live

Stoner Metallers Obscure Release New EP

Finnish metallers Obscure have released a new EP ‘Zero Dawn‘. Obscure is 2015 founded metal act that combines on their music elements from various genres such as stoner rock and sludge metal.

True to its name the band mixes musical elements from different genres so fluently that it is not relevant to narrow the description of Obscure‘s music down to one genre.

Band’s guitar player E. Hämäläinen comments the new EP: “We started recording this EP during summer 2017 after doing few gigs around Finland. There was no real musical direction or style of what kind of music we wanted to write, we didn’t decide what “genre” we would want to represent or anything like that. We just wrote what we felt natural to us at the time so the final product is very honest and sounds just very much like us. All members of the band have their own favorite artists that we listen to and they of course influence the music that we want to hear ourselves playing, so some elements of Mastodon, Black Sabbath and Crowbar, to name a few, may be heard on this release.
Here it is, our debut EP that’s finally ready after couple of delays, few technical setbacks and a whole lot of blood sweat and tears proudly presented to you by the ugly bastards of Obscure.
