VANGOUGH to Release Warpaint March 17th
VANGOUGH is a three-piece, American progressive metal band. Their eclectic brand of songwriting straddles the line between the familiar and the volatile - a temperamental cocktail that invites both heavy metal fans and those seeking refuge from the beaten path. They have proven this over their years as a band and now they will further their legacy with the release of their latest masterpiece Warpaint on March 17th. Warpaint, ferments their audacious songwriting style across seven formidable yet emotionally vulnerable songs. Spending over a year in production, this album represents the delicate inculcation of restraint, self-doubt and introspection that was afforded as a result of their recent touring efforts. Exposing the nakedness that we struggle to conceal, Warpaint is the story of embattled spirits. To find out more: http://www.officialvangough.com

Rock Music Legend John Wetton Dies
(12th June 1949 – 31st January 2017)
Rock music legend John Wetton sadly passed away in the early hours of Tuesday 31st January 2017, after a long and courageous battle against colon cancer. John rose to fame with King Crimson in the early 70s during the iconic Red era and later formed the band UK. In the early 1980s he was a founder member of supergroup ASIA which was his biggest commercial success. The band’s 1982 self-titled debut album was the biggest selling album in the world that year and gave fans and mainstream radio the mega-hit Heat of the Moment.
John had been planning to tour with ASIA for the band’s forthcoming US arena tour with Journey. The very last studio song of John Wetton’s career was the closing track on the most recent and indeed final ASIA album “Gravitas” and included the profound lyrics “Think the best of me, till we meet again.”
