Rush: Album by Album by Martin Popoff

Rush

Voyageur Press [Published 04.08.17]

ISBN’s 0760352208  978-0760352205

Martin Popoff interviews musicians including Metallica’s Kirk Hammet, Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater) and Mr Big’s Paul Gilbert among others – all who were influenced by the music of Rush. Interesting insight to the band is added by Rush’s first roadie Ian Grandy, along with fans like Douglas Maher, who has followed and written about Rush for many years.

The good thing about these sort of ‘Album By Album’ books is that they provide a source of endless debate between fans. Nicely illustrated throughout with band photos, album covers, tour posters etc.

Ideal for a die hard Rush fans covering all the band’s studio albums, both informative and entertaining.

Fifty Gigs In A Day – YES

Prog rock legends Yes will kindly plug Nordoff Robbins charity when they are on their Cruise to the Edge next February. Very honoured to have their support and involvement.

Von Hertzen Brothers announce UK tour & new album titled “VII – War is Over”

Finland’s most acclaimed progressive rock group Von Hertzen Brothers are excited to announce that they will be releasing a new album titled “VII – War is Over” this coming autumn and will be supporting it with an extensive UK tour.

The “War is Over” Tour will kick off at Nottingham Rescue Rooms on Sunday November 5th and will run until Nov 18th at Wolverhampton’s Slade Rooms and will also include appearances at London’s Garage on Thursday 16th, as well as appearances at Winter rock festivals including Hard Rock Hell & HRH Prog. They will play alongside bands such as Uriah Heap, Magnum, Threshold and many more. Supports for the tour are also due to be announced shortly.

The band are currently locked away in a studio in Helsinki Finland, where they are mixing down the last tracks for their much anticipated new album.

Singer Mikko Von Hertzen says: “ We (The Brothers) are so excited by the songs on our new album. We took a little breather to give space for seeds to sprout and for musical ideas to grow and flourish. So what we now have is a beautiful garden of all different kinds of songs. We feel there is a new fresh magic and energy in this record that we are all extremely excited about and we cannot wait to unleash these songs across audiences in the UK”
