Kobra & The Lotus announce headline UK & Europe tour dates

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 13th August 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Fronted by vocal power house Kobra Paige, Canadian hard rockers Kobra & The Lotus have announced a headlining tour of the UK and Europe for October and November, later this year. The band will be touring in support of their latest, self-titled album: Kobra & The Lotus – an album that is regarded as 11 tracks of dramatic heavy metal that proves Kobra Paige is more than capable of holding her own against the HalfordsDickinsons and even the Dios in the metal world.

In related KATL news, the band will also be chronicled for US TV show Rock City, which will premier on Spike TV this autumn. The eight episode long season will follow the daily dramas of the rising metal outfit on their world tour, documenting their thoughts and deeds.  European and UK dates are as follow:

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!
