U.K. rockers THE QUIREBOYS are working on a brand new studio album for an early June release via Off Yer Rocka Recordings. The as-yet-untitled CD is being produced and mixed by the legendary Chris Tsangarides (JUDAS PRIEST, GARY MOORE, THIN LIZZY), who promises a modern sound with old-school values.
In January 2013, THE QUIREBOYS appointed marketing and festival guru Jonni Davis as their new manager and their new record deal.
With multiple festival appearances, the Monsters Of Rock cruise, a European headline tour and three planned releases, things are ramping up in a manner that will put THE QUIREBOYS back where they belong… on the global playing field.
THE QUIREBOYS‘ current lineup includes original frontman Spike Gray and guitarist Guy Griffin alongside Paul Guerin (guitar), Dave Boyce (bass), Keith Weir (keyboards) and Matt Goom (drums).
Legendary British metallers SAXON have released the video for their new single “Sacrifice” from the upcoming album of the same name.
