More popular than ever, Jeff Lynne’s ELO have always been known for their epic live shows and with a distinct style that seamlessly and innovatively blends rock, pop and classical, ELO has had twenty six UK Top 40 singles, making Lynne’s sweeping productions some of the most recognisable music of the last forty years and helping sell over 50 million records worldwide.

June’s stunning Wembley Stadium gig is being immortalised in the live DVD ‘Wembley Or Bust’ out November 17th. In ‘Wembley or Bust,’ we see Jeff and his remarkable musical ensemble filling Wembley Stadium with one of the greatest rock & roll spectacles of all time, complete with bells, whistles and spaceships in front of a 60,000 capacity crowd.

KINO – remastered ‘Picture’ to be issued on vinyl for the first time

Kino – the band formed by John Mitchell (Lonely Robot, Frost*), Pete Trewavas (Marillion), John Beck (It Bites) & Chris Maitland (ex-Porcupine Tree), released their much-loved debut album ‘Picture’ back in 2005. Now the album has been remastered by John Mitchell, and will be issued on vinyl for the very first time on the 17th November 2017, as well as returning to digital and streaming services.

Mitchell had this to say: “The Kino ‘Picture’ album has been unavailable for a while but a lot of people have been asking about it so it’s clearly got a place in a lot of people’s hearts which is wonderful. It was never released on vinyl previously so it’s great that Inside Out have made that happen. A lot of people have also asked whether there will be a new Kino album one day….that’s a good question and one day it may be answered.”

‘Picture’ is available on Gatefold 180g black 2LP, including the CD as bonus, as well as digital download. Pre-order your copy here



THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have returned with news of a brand new studio album to be released in early 2018, supported by a European headlining tour.

The band’s eagerly-anticipated new album, ‘A Deeper Cut’, is due to be released on February 16th, 2018 and features 12 brand new songs which draw on the band’s recent experiences and showcase their ever-improving songwriting abilities.

“This is my favourite record we’ve made so far and I’m more excited about getting this out there than I have been about any of the previous albums,” states guitarist Paul Sayer.  “I feel like we’ve really captured what the band is about on this one; I can’t wait for people to hear it and I can’t wait to get out on the road and play it live to everyone.”

Guitarist Matt White, who makes his recording debut with THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT on ‘A Deeper Cut’, adds: “There isn’t an ounce of fat on this album.  Everything that is on there happened because it was absolutely necessary and vital that it was put down.  It’s both a nod to the past and a wink to the future.  It was a pleasure to be involved in writing and recording with The Temperance Movement for the first time.  I feel that together, with [producer] Sam Miller, we have surpassed any expectations that were placed upon us and that we have produced the finest body of work from the band to date.”

‘A Deeper Cut’ will be available to pre-order starting this Friday, November 3rd on limited edition signed digipak CD, regular digipak CD, regular vinyl, and limited edition signed coloured vinyl.  Head to the Earache Webstore <> from Friday to reserve your copy.
