The Irish rock outfit Sweet Taste have joined the Rocksector Records roster and have also announced details about their new EP Hit The Spot which will be released on 22nd April 2013.

With a genuine exuberance this Belfast-born classic rock sounds fresh and exciting, with songs beautifully crafted and played. Audiences at a Sweet Taste show will testify to the band’s skills in the live arena and with Hit The Spot the band has fine-tuned its recording to combine the energy of a live feel with a modern clarity of sound.

Formed in 2009, the band self-released a 3-track EP in September of that year and via a true commitment to live shows soon forged a place as one of Ireland’s most sought-after live acts. They’ve appeared at some of Ireland’s premier venues such as The Limelight, Spring and Airbrake, and The Empire Music Hall.

In 2011 Sweet Taste crossed the waters to appear at Hard Rock Hell in North Wales, appearing alongside bands such as Black Stone Cherry, Quireboys, Therapy? and Crash Diet.

Sweet Taste were just recently confirmed for an acoustic set at SOS Festival in North Manchester on 20th July and further tour dates are anticipated around the same time. Meanwhile, they launch the new EP with a Belfast show at The Empire Music Hall on 18th April.

The band is offering a free MP3 download of the song Get Your Groove On from the EP. Go to this location for the MP3, together with a sampler video.

Jettblack announce special guests for UK tour

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 3rd September 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Night By Night – the five-piece hard rock band from London – will be guest support for Jettblack’s debut UK headline tour, set to take place in October of this year.

This run of dates is something we’re 100% geared up for, as it’s our first ‘proper’ headline tour of the UK; meaning we can deliver a set which represents both albums, ‘Get Your Hands Dirty’ [2010] and ‘Raining Rock’ [2012]. We’ve got more flexibility to put on a show, and not fire through the set at 100mph! It’s all about entertaining and leaving (hopefully) with a smile ear to ear, sweaty locks, and a stiff head-bangin neck! The last London date was a sell-out, so get in there quick! Hands shall be Dirtied & Rock will Rain! Can’t wait to see ya!” comments Matt Oliver, drummer of Jettblack.

Night By Night guitarist Ben Christo adds “We’re absolutely thrilled to be hitting the road with the mighty Jettblack. It’s gonna be a challenge to match their super-polished, high-octane melodic metal, but we’re ready to rise to it!
